    Just found this dead in my couch. Has segments, but color is odd. Is it a bed bug or a carpet beetle?!

    One image, a close-up and not with penny nearby, is of a booklouse.

    It looks like it's been dead 100 yrs. Have you been bitten?

    Well I found a single, confirmed bed bug in my room about two months ago, and I haven't slept in there since. I have had one "bite" since moving to the couch downstairs (yes, I know it is not the right thing to do but I have taken ALL precautions), and the bite that I got then was after staying in a hotel for 4 nights, two nights prior to my bite, if that's what it was. We even took apart the couch and found nothing, plus we swept it. That thing on the penny was found about a week after sweeping.
