    Hello,

    Today we bought a second hand couch from a friend. The friend had placed this couch on his townhome patio for two months (covered witha tarp) on the second floor

    When i was moving it today, I found a lady bug on it and then in another crease I found a dry skin like this.

    I took a photo of the front and back of the with measurement tape.

    I left the couch in the garage and sprayed it with lots of Diamateceous Earth on and around it.

    I'm freaking out cause im scared I've introduced something to my new townhome. there's no one in it right now but the sofa's are in the garage. Really scared of an infestation problem

    Looks like most of an abdomen of a bed bug.

    Hi Lou,

    Is there anyway to confirm if it's a bed bug? or possibly how to see if my couch is invested?
