    Bed bugs tend to stay mostly intact, better than your average creature. I really can't think of a time during inspection that I've run across remains that have been severely broken apart; I'm sure it happens, but it's not common.

    I think after a while of dealing with the trauma of bedbugs everything starts looking like evidence. Lol. I have the BB passive monitors on my couch and bed. And knock on wood. I'm past the 14 day clear mark on both of them.

    Looks like thorax, head, a leg of a beetle, most likely something like a black carpet beetle.
