    I found some cast skins this morning in my bed. They are the size of the "O" in In God We Trust on a penny. I can't even zoom in enough with my camera to get a picture of them. Unfortunately, the skins are perfectly round, with 3/4 being orange and 1/4 clear on one end. I've found at least a half dozen bugs. All have been perfectly round and light orange in color. I have yet to find a dark or black bug.

    Sounds like you're finding the little buggers after hatching, becoming nymphs, and growing up.

    My pco said the nymphs are "yellowish"..with a red dot (after feeding) in the belly. Definitely not adults..that's the good news.
