    I am posting this for a forum user that couldn't figure out how to post a picture. She would like to see if any of the experts can tell her if this is a shed skin (or piece thereof) or not:

    I removed "(shed skin)" from the subject header because this may mislead people into thinking you already have an ID.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Hi,

    It's a shed skin but 100% not a bedbug cast skin.

    Hope that helps.

    I am happy to answer questions in public but will not reply to message sent directly or via my company / social media. I am here to help everyone and not just one case at a time.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    Thanks Nobugs! I certainly did NOT want to give the impression that I thought it was a bed bug shed skin!

    And . . .

    Thank you DC for the ID!
