    Hello,

    I think I've seen enough on this forum to know this isn't a bed bug, but I just want to be sure. Could someone ID from the picture? Same bug/thing in both pictures, just on the item I found it on in one and my hand in the other. Thank you!

    Hi,

    100% not bedbug but a clearer image to n a flat surface would be needed for a species ID.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much! I really appreciate it. Not a bed bug is enough for now. If I find another I'll take a better picture.

    It's the shed skin of a carpet beetle larva.
