    As far as what I had found on the glue trap, now I have taken the top off and tried for higher res pics. Hopefully we can tell if the bug is a BB or beetle, the nymph which seemed to be a BB nymph even in the fuzzier pics can be seen better. If either is BB, should I call for my third chem treatment, i had 2 approx a month ago. Nothibg else has been found in other traps, in interceptors or on my new (encased) mattress and box spring. Still living out of plastic bags and a almost empty bedroom. Im prepared to call for the third treatment in my apartment, although it seems strange to see such a little bit of evidence. Im not going to be in denial though, so please advise based on tehse pics if I should wait for more evidence of call tomorrow. Thanks!

    The first bug is not a bed bug, it might be a shiny spider beetle.
    Unfortunately I just can't focus enough on the nymph to give a positive ID, maybe Lou can see it better than I can. I can definitely see your concern with the nymph.

    Still quite sure, paired with the pic from yesterday, this is a nymph.

    What is the gel?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Lou commented on a different post you created regarding the nymph, he confirmed that it looks like a bed bug nymph to him. I'd be scheduling another PCO appointment soon.

    OK thanks everybody. Scheduled my third treatment for tomorrow afternoon. Was almost up to a month of seeing nothing. Anyway I'm pretty sure that the level of infestation Is way down, and my dread and anxiety about the whole thing is still bad, but not quite as bad as it was when this all started. I'm glad I finally started posting on this site instead of just lurking. Hopefully we all move to a solution. I will be one of the ones he comes back to say when it's all over, I know I always like to see post like that on here!

    Too bad you didn't link the other posting. I just posted on a different one from this same person. It doesn't help to keep posting threads with the same pictures. I don't really see any bed bugs here. The pictures need to be higher resolution because zooming in on the site doesn't really give more magnification. Picture size will be bigger if more resolution too.

    I have a higher res pic of the nymph on a glue from yesterday , which struck all the terror, which is why they are coming back for a third treatment later on. Maybe someone will say it isnt BB. either way I want to get the *$%^ treated out of everything again.

    Yep, it's a nymph, make sure you keep the specimen to show the PCO who comes to do another treatment.
