    Hi everyone!

    So after I thought I was FINALLY free- my friend (who stayed over this past weekend) sent me this picture of a bug she found in her bed

    Praying it's not a they-who-must-not-be-named but:

    I would wait for confirmation from Lou to be 100% certain, but it does look a lot like a bedbug.

    Is it possible she already had an infestation herself or picked it up elsewhere?

    Looks like an adult male bed bug. A bit squished.

    Bit squished indeed. Ok thank you. So if my friend's roommate found this in her bed yesterday morning after four days of bites and my friend came over to my house twice last week, should I start freaking out and treating everything in my place yet or just dust some Cimexa along the walls to start with (my friend herself checked her bed yesterday and didn't see anything).
