    Hi,

    Too out of focus to confirm other than too small for bedbugs.

    You need to retake without the coin which the camera focuses on rather than the samples.

    Hi,

    Where are you finding these?

    What kind of numbers are they being found in?

    What part of the country are you in?

    Is it a city or rural environment?

    A little background would help and i have to say it would be polite to actually give some background to help us to help you.

    David

    Hi,

    This one will require an entomologist to confirm beyond 100% not bedbugs.

    Aspects remind me of Australian spider beetles but I don't think this one is native to the UK as I don't recognise it.

    Realize the quality of the picture is poor, but I've had it identified by an entomologist in the US as a spider beetle.

    Out of focus. I don't even know if I'd call them insects or insect parts.

    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.
