    Hello! I've been unsure whether we have bed bugs in the house. Passive detectors have been bought and installed since yesterday. Found this dead bug on the carpet today - unsure if it's a bed bug, or something else?

    Some help identifying this little fella would be greatly appreciated.

    Something else.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as employee of the patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations.

    For those that are curious, yes it can be challenging working for David

    Maybe something to do with isopods. A ventral view could help. So not a "bug".
