    Hey everyone,

    Just when I had calmed down that I was just paranoid, I checked the homemade trap my roommate made and found this. It's a nymph, isn't it ?? https://flic.kr/p/XDLB1N

    Can you get a clearer photo? I see a dot on a drum stick...

    It was so water logged, or yeast sugar solution logged, that that's the clearest I could come up with. The only other photo I've got is this one - https://flic.kr/p/X7RTq1

    I am absolutely stupid with Flickr, but I think I got this....

    The tape in my hand is fresh babies and eggs, the beige background is an almost mature nymph... the other pics are a dead female... if any of that helps you?

    Thanks for the pics! I let it dry out and now it looks like this - https://flic.kr/p/XvPJLp

    Can't get a clear view of the legs, but curious if any experts can and also if any other bugs would be attracted to the yeast, sugar homemade trap.

    Just made arrangements to move on Sunday, but am just going to leave it all behind if it is a bed bug.

    Cant tell what the bug in the photos is, but any bug attracted to CO2 would be drawn to that trap.

    Not an expert. Any advice I give is information gleaned via anxiety-fueled research of credible sources and expert posts here. Please research all advice before treating and consult a professional.

    I thought the same thing and have been trying to Google a list of possibilities! I meant to thank you for your response to my last post on Saturday, by the way. Knowing there are others out there that understand the anxiety is really comforting. I'm guessing that even the experts might not be able to tell if this is a BB. I think I'll be safe and leave all my wooden furniture behind. Start fresh.

    Not necessarily. Might just have blundered in.
