    Got our apartment building treated for fleas about a week ago and was supposed to vaccum daily for 2 weeks after the treatment. On day 4, I decided to vaccum. Found this dead thing in my bedroom on the carpet. It doesn't look like a flea, and of course I immediately thought of bed bugs. I of course am itching all over. I turn the room upside down and found nothing else. No signs of blood, nothing on my white sheets, no bugs etc. Please tell me this isn't a bed bug. Hopefully the picture is okay....

    I'm not a pro by any means but it sort of looks like a spider to me?

    I worried because of the one dark spot at the head or tail (who knows) looked a lot like the Bed Bugs blood spot. I've had carpet beetles in one apartment and silverfish in another so I knew immediately it wasn't those....

    I really doesn't look like a bed bug to me. Hopefully someone who's been around a while will get on here and put your mind at ease

    It doesn't look like mine. You can click that weird rectangle in the righthand bottom of the flickr to get the htlm/bb code. Might make it easier for the pros on here to look at.

    I'd wait for a response from them, but relax for now.
