    So I posted earlier about months on end not finding anything and then as I was doing my weekly crazy cleaning spree I found this dead in the windowsill.

    I put it next to the nickel for scale, the last picture is probably the clearest. It looks to me like the 'just fed' type? Except the head is really round? So tired of this.

    Thank you both. Kept me from calling the canine inspector in a panic.

    Body, head, etc. have nothing to do with bed bug. Please compare bed bug pictures to this so you will see the differences I pointed out.
