    This is the second of two "casings" I've found on my bed. They're tiny (the photo was taken with an iPhone, I lack a camera), very hard, and not transparent. There no obvious legs/head. It appears to have dark brown, straight, horizontal stripes with yellow/tan in between. I haven't had any bites, but as usual, am paranoid.

    Any help would be greatly valued, as I'm worried sick about bed bugs. Thank you so much!
