    Found what I believe is a BB on my wall near the top of my bed the other day around 3 PM.

    At first it looked like just a brownish-red spot but when sprayed with Lysol and it's head and legs started to pop out... Thought it was a beetle at first due to the size; until I found casts on my box spring.

    Hoping to get an official ID; is this a BB/BB casts? (Apologies for the poor quality pictures.)

    Hi,

    Well thankfully no amount of belief will make this a bedbug.

    Please have a look at the example images and you will see the shape on the back is I correct.

    Hope that helps.

    None. First big bug look like a brown marmorated stink bug. They come in to overwinter in colder parts of house. You have some carpet beetle larval shed skins. Don't see any bed bug related parts.
