    Hi

    I got eaten alive by bedbugs in a hotel and the bumps took about a week to appear. Since I have been back in my apartment (a month) there are no signs they came back with me - although there are lots of mosquitos where I am so blood (red) is common on white sheets (no black marks) and bites from mossies look similar.

    I was pretty sure I was clear until I found the following bug hidden in a sock. It looks like a beetle but I'd love an expert to give me peace of mind.

    Huuuuuuge thanks in advance.

    Like you wouldn't believe. I've been seconded out to Tanzania and you name it, it's bit me.

    Have a fantastic Christmas and thanks for the job you do. There's no way to buy you a beer/coffee is there?
