    With only 4 legs? There are definitely only 4 legs. We looked with a magnifying glass. But the body does look the same.

    We have no other symptoms in the house. No bites, no feces trails, no blood trails, no skins.

    I found it crawling in our dirty laundry hamper around 7am this morning. I stripped the beds and looked for signs.

    I washed and dried all the clothes in the hamper with hot water and high heat.

    Where do I go from here?

    4 legs left. Arthropod legs come off easily.

    The remaining sample looks like a BB.
