    Hello All,

    I have been browsing through these forums non-stop and I am amazed at the amount of knowledge you guys have, so for that I thank you. Over the past couple of months I have been getting bites here and there, and I never really thought any thing oh it. My girlfriend was here the other night and she get 4 bites on her foot and after that, I was off to the races. I've had a couple of exterminator come by and both of them could not find a thing which would lead them to believe there were bed bugs. When I did my thorough inspection prior to them coming, however, here is what I found. After some research I am thinking they might be carpet beetles, for I also found some harry larva in the crevices of the bed (not pictured). Thanks for any help and insight you can provide!
