    Still really amazed and grateful that this forum exists and that there are people willing to help.

    Couldn't get macro but tried to get as high quality as possible.

    Hate to add, but I'm afraid I found a cast skin. It appeared in the sheets after I'd finished washing and drying them?? 2 pictures in link:

    Hi,

    First image beetle and debris.

    Second image partial remains of an insect but 100% bedbugs, similar things but not identical can be found by searching “headless ladybug”.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, David! To be clear, this IS 100% bed bugs or is not? I was confused by the ladybug reference (and do see that several similar images were determined to be ladybugs).

    It’s 100% not bedbugs, as you can see by searching for the similar posts.

    The small beetle looks like one of the fungus beetles, moisture-related beetle. The large piece is part of a larger beetle abdomen.
