    I've kind of been keeping this to myself, but lately I've been getting vicous bites, and not just in the breakfast, lunch, dinner configuration, but with snacks included as well.

    I know...I know...bites alone don't mean anything, so I checked my passive monitor last night and it found this thing.

    Doesn't quite look like a bed bug, but who knows I'm not an expert. Any opinions?

    Here it is:

    Don't know, but it looks like it doesn't suck blood painlessly.

    UPDATE:

    The thing is getting bigger and hungrier. Now locked in closet and in danger of losing wifi and more. Can anyone summon Ghengis? This may require lots of MOLD!

    Use the packtite , or the steamer on highest pressure setting, you better call PJB & get a local referral too quickly. Looks like your gonna need help don't think you have time to get the humidity up to 97% for the fungus spores to work on that monster it takes about 4 days .

    He doesn't have a sense of humor - I thought that was evident. This one is actually a chewing bed bug. Chewing and lapping rather than sucking.
    Good thing there's only one.

    Abs:
    Did you every hear the story of the scorpion & the frog? Its in his nature my dear, lol..
    Hope Nobugs don't get on to me for that one , I'm feeling fun & spunky today , passed my test @ school 98% & I'm not talking about fungus humidity .
    I gotta get to sleep have a Awesome day everyone

    The Scorpion and the Frog

    A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
    scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
    frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion
    says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

    The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
    the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
    paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
    but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

    Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

    @IJAB . . . yes, I've heard that story (or would that be a fable?) anywho, I have heard it, but I think the version I heard was with an alligator, crocodile . . . something along those lines . . . although the end seems to be the same!

    Wouldn't GhangisKong be more of an expert on ginormous gorillas than your problem?
