    Hello,

    If you read my post history you'll see I unwittingly moved into a flat with a terrible infestation, moved out "wrong", and brought them with me, in February this year.

    I only ever saw 1 live bug and 2 dead ones in the new place. Since then I've had two back to back chemical and heat treatments in 3 phases, with thorough inspections. Nothing. Not one bug. A few bloodstains, but no fecal stains or live ones. The second PCO advised not doing any more. I posted here and got some kind responses saying the same -- the problem is elsewhere.

    Then last night, 2 weeks since the last treatment (chemical, as a barrier after 2 heat treatments), I found these in my bed, seemingly dead. More reddish brown in real life. They look just like bedbugs to me.

    Can I get an ID?

    Thank you so much. I'm determined to get to the bottom of this.
