    Hey guys

    I bought a new bedframe set from Walmart online, but I suspect that the headboard has bedbugs. This is driving me crazy and I can't assemble my bed until I'm sure there is nothing wrong.

    I have been considering a detection dog with an expert but the costs are prohibitive and I've read that they're prone to false positives. Apart from the attached photograph, I haven't found any other signs/evidence of bed bugs. The photograph is of a small section on the back of the headboard.

    That image is not bedbug related. If you look at the fine detail of the example images and compare to what you have they are far less similar than they first appear.

    Hope that helps.
