    I found this on the bottom of my foot a little while ago. Assuming I stepped on it somewhere or it got into my shoe. Is it part of a bedbug? I looked around for more of it as I just got home, but don't seen anything on the floor or in my shoe.

    I've been monitoring for the past month and have not seen any signs of them nor have I had any more "bites." Monitors are clear now for over a month straight. Thank you in advance!

    Looks like the ventral abdominal sections of a ladybird beetle.
