    I think I had bedbugs once -- something. Had bites and a wheeze in my lungs. I threw away all my pillows, mattress, carpet, washed my whole room, bagged things, put what Incould in the dryer, wrapped other things in black bags and put in the sun. Drove me into being an anxious wreck. Not a complete job done, but tried my best. I even MOVED. A lot of water and mosquitos exist around me. Ive got bites again. But is it the mosquitos this time? Or did I bring guests with me?? T_T

    Please let me know if I need to beware of this guy -- I just found it in the crevice of my foldaway couch bed.

    I'd wait for confirmation from Lou but that looks like the cast skin of a carpet beetle.
