    I found a bug on my skin when I was reading a book in my bed. In this apartment building they have recently detected bed bugs in two apartments, which makes me very worried that this might be a bed bug as well. And I just had a visitor who slept in my apartment and he said that now he has small area of skin, which is quite itchy.

    Here is couple of highly magnified pictures of the bug after I killed it with alcohol based disinfectant and let it dry overnight:

    If those pictures aren't visible, here are links to those pictures:

    BTW, I live with two dogs and they are using a drug called NexGard which should kill fleas within 8 hours and ticks within 48 hours of sucking blood. If there are bed bugs, I wonder would this drug kill bed bugs as well, if the bed bugs try to bite the dogs?
