    Ok so I had a very small infestation about 8 months ago (so small that the exterminator told me that, had I not had a dead one in a ziplock to show him, he wouldn’t have even treated - he ended up treating twice). I have since moved, put encasements on my box spring and mattress, and put passive monitors on my bed legs. My paranoia got so strong after moving that I ended up having to go to therapy. I never found fecal stains, cast skins, or bugs. Until today, when I checked the passive monitors and found the bug in the images below. I sent these pics to two different exterminators and they both said it’s probably a beetle, but I’m so worried that this nightmare is happening again, and that I’m going to go through another mental breakdown. Someone please help...

    I answered this question in another post. Beetle. Don't use tinypic- very annoying to work with.
