    It's dried up, but doesn't looks like any shed skin. Not a bed bug. Doesn't look like an entire body.

    Hi Lou,

    So it’s not a bb for sure right. Do u know what it might be. I was scared Because a local PCO told me the color and segment in the body looked like it was, with a missing head possibly. Thanks

    I never said it looked like a bed bug at all.

    Thank you. I’m very glad to hear you say it’s not. I absolutely trust you more than the local pco. They probably just wanted my money.

    Hi Lou,
    Maybe or they just don't know insects that well.

    It just could be that he doesn't identify things well.
