    My son slept on the couch last night. When he went to take his bath he brought the blanket into the bathroom with him. When I picked the blanket up off the bathroom floor there was this little pile underneath. I know the bottom left bug is a carpet beetle larvae. Can someone identify the bug on the far right? Is it a bed bug nymph or a new hatched carpet beetle larvae? The red in it makes me scared it's a nymph. Please help!

    Definitely not a bed bug. Looking through your photos I don't see anything bed bug related.

    Hi,

    Even by downloading and cropping the focus is out too much. You may need to retake the image without the carpet beetle larva and other items to get the clearest focus.

    I had to head out the door to get the kids to work so I grabbed it all and flushed it. I know it looks kinda like a reddish transparent blob with little eyes. but I can definitely have a good imagination these days. Thank you!
