    Hadn't seen any live ones in 2 weeks, then saw and killed 2. I know one was female, could tell the other (too squished).

    Today, this was on my sons arm, which he thought was a beetle, and blew off to the floor. Is this a cast skin, or is this what happens when they go through DTE? I did sprinkle the floor all around where he had been sitting a week or so ago....

    Abdomen of male bed bug or close relative. Very young nymph, too.
