    I don't know how brittle and fragile the castings are but I found these bits below a chair. Are they bed bug related? [img]http://[/img]

    Yes. And I am ashamed. But I can't ignore potential evidence when I see it. Help!

    You should be To me it looks likes the usual stuff found under chair and sofa cushions that wouldn't be given a second thought unless you have bed bugs on the mind. I'm sure a pro will come along and confirm as such.

    Looking at pics online now I don't think it is. I looked at it with a magnifying glass and I think it's some bug with legs broken off. It was just finding the little legs with it that creeped me out. Still interested in what the experts say. Thanks Richard56!

    Hope that helps.

    It does help. I think I would have completely lost it by now without the resourceful people on this forum. I'm not a bedbug expert. But the help and reassurance that I received at no charge here makes me feel even more compelled to find a way to give to others in need based on whatever expertise I may have. Thanks.

    Spider parts. A cephalothorax and 3 legs. The cephalothorax has one or two leg bases, each with one trochanter attached. The front of the cephalothorax is on the lower side of the image. Looks like debris in upper left hand section below the dime. Thin, somewhat horizontal item is unknown.

    Potential to bite, yes; probability, no.
