    I found this in a small plastic glue trap. I had 2 chem treatments, one 5 weeks ago, one 4 weeks ago, Nothing else seen , have replaced bed, new one is encased and isolated, and has climb-ups (empty). Most of bedroom furniture was discarded. I can do a full story, with emotions and details but now I need to know if anything can be identified from these photos of the glue trap. The plastic may make it hard to discern I know. I thought I was getting somewhere not having seen anything in a month, but if another treatment is needed Ill get it.

    Second is 99% a bb nymph. First could be an adult but not sure.

    Big, roundish one could be a shiny spider beetle. But hard to see the insect as it is now "packaged".

    thanks Lou whats your opinion on the one that may be a nymph, and do you see a cast next to the mystery bug? I put out a few other tpyes of glue traps, where Id be able see things better after they are caught. I know glue traps in general arent that great, like I said nothing in the climb ups. I just have my finger tight over the button to call the exterminator for a third treatment, but dont want to unless I see proof of need. Should I wait for another sign?
    The part about not seeing anything but being suspicious is so weird.

    Thanks again!

    If you still have the possible nymph, best to make another picture with better resolution to confirm.

    Ok tried to light and magnify them more.
    from the glue trap, m really thinking the bug is a shiny spider beetle with a larvae near it, but is the other a (BB) nymph? Its my only sign of anything after a month.

    Maybe don't magnify them that much. Picture is getting to blurry.

    I didn't comment on the nymph because 99% is good for me. Yes, it looks like a bed bug nymph. The problem is the small picture size and low resolution for them. Can't tell much about the "spider beetle" picture and larva. The larva doesn't look like a spider beetle larva, but more like carpet beetle.
    But can't do much else with those pictures.
