    Found this near my headboard on the wall crawling around. I'm pretty sure it's a baby bedbug.
    Does anyone know how old it is?
    The length is less than 2-3mm and width about 1mm.
    Brown reddish colour.


    By the way, they CAN climb up glass as evident in this glass jar. I have shaked the jar like mad and it doesn't move at all. They have sticky feet!

    This is the 3rd time I've seen this type of bug. I've recently had a cleanout and treatment a week ago.
    I vacuumed the room and about 7 hours later, saw this bug climbing around the wall above the headboard.

    I have also noticed that they seem to travel around/hide in areas where there was once a cluster of infestation...this implies that they must produce pheromones or something similar like ants do, to trace back to their 'family'.

    Wait...I don't think it is a bedbug anymore...it started to 'fly' around the jar...bedbugs don't have wings right?
