    Hi,

    100% not bedbug.

    If you search the forum for “headless ladybug/ladybird” you will find similar images. The most obvious telltale signs are the flat edge to the samples and the lighter colour to that is she. After that you have the fact that a dead bedbug is paper thin and flat which this is not.

    Hope that helps.

    Thankfully it's not reliant on your belief, it is what it is and nothing more.
