    Hello Guys and Gals,

    First post here, hoping I can get some help.

    I went to my neighbors apt the other day to help her move her AC out of her window.

    Went and did the deed, as I was moving this thing her dogs scratched my legs. My legs became itchy due to the scratch so I sanitized it etc. Few days later I was still itchy, however I started noticing what looked like bites! So obviously I start freaking out, is it bed bugs, is it fleas, I searched my bed and did not find the tell tale signs. Also when I first moved into my apartment 7 months ago, I bought a new mattress and sealed it right away with zip cover that protects against bed bugs and the such.

    However, I still have these bites all over my ankles! What I did find on the floor next to the bed was two of these creepies, are they bed bugs or some other blood sucker? Help!

    Beetle is shiny spider beetle, Gibbium aequinoctiale.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
