    Bed bugs on baseboard or no I'm freaking out because I just moved into this house 2 months ago and I found this in the dining room. Can someone please tell me if I need to contact an exterminator now or can I wait till June? [Money is tight atm]. Thanks in advance. The image is below and above this.

    You seem to have taken the picture from far away. Yes, the bug close to the floor looks like a very flat bed bug. Attached house? Separate?

    Are you asking if the garage is attached? If so, no it's not. Thank you so much for getting back to me. That photo was taken up close with my phone. I also have this photo of bathroom that I took last night.

    Also here is a closer photo of the first image closer up. It looks like there may of been bedbugs and they just sealed the baseboards?

    Would you recommend I have an exterminator come out or do you think it's okay?

    I wouldn't worry about it now. But you can collect the materials and bring to one of them to see if they can figure it out.

    I looked at your pics and I cant really tell what it all is but something has been going on that's for sure.Do suspect you have them from just the way the baseboards look or are you having other signs of them?

    Just how the baseboards look. I haven't seen any visible signs of bed bugs [bugs themselves or bites]

    If you have lived there for 2 months and arent seeing bugs or bites then I wouldn't be too concerned...But I would keep an eye out sweetie...Everyone doesnt always show bites.so you can't be sure just because you arent seeing the bites.Also the bugs are great hiders..HONESTLY I wouldn't worry to much right now...Just keep an eye out on your beds for a bit.
