    Somewhat poor, cloudy picture, but a bed bug or close relative. Looks like an adult. A bit flat. Are you in apartment building? Private home? Traveled, visitors?

    Heres another pic, still not great, I'm sorry.
    I live in an apartment. Haven't travelled. Only visitors are family and boyfriend who havent travelled either and dont have bugs in their homes. A tenant in the 7th floor had a problem a couple of months ago which was taken care of. I live on the 1st floor. I havent experienced any bites, dont see anything in my bed or on my mattress. This one in the bathroom is all i have ever seen.

    Not a crisp image. Doesn't matter. Maybe the bug is from the 7th floor tenant or maybe his infestation are also in other apartments; other apartments might have their own issues, too. Building wasn't examined? Only treated the person who complained?

    7th floor tenant went travelling and brought them home, told landlord once they realized. As far as i know, the 7th floor unit and a few surrounding units were treated but that's it. I sent my pics to the Super and he said he would send them to our pest control company to analyze. Just waiting to hear back from him. I havent seen any others in my apartment since then so I'm not freaking out yet but I'm uneasy.
