    Hi there.
    Was really really hoping that I was past this. Back story: Started having reactions around every two weeks or so in early October, no visual signs at all, at least as far as I looked and I looked pretty good (did my research). Almost two whole months go by. Until I finally did one final check on underside of box spring and found one singular bed bug (stopped looking after that though, that was enough).
    2 exterminations: end of December and two weeks later in mid January. Have been getting occasional welts, not nearly as bad but was still hopeful. Until this....
    Missing its head I think. Was pretty smushed when I saw. I have done the Cimexa business as well as encased boxspring and mattress, as well as have the climb ups. But I am very, very concerned by the shape and the color. I know this isn't much to go off, but any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if I can go through this again.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also should note this was found in semi near the bed (I live in a small studio), but nothing so far in climb ups or Cimexa deaths that I have seen.
