    Long story short: was bitten by bedbugs in hotel the night of my daughter's wedding three weeks ago, but didn't realize that's what the bites were until 2 days later, by which time I'd already had the suitcase in my home bedroom on our bed, etc., etc. Have taken every precaution I've read about, including encasing mattress and box spring, bagging everything in sight, washing, drying, freezing...and now we have these glue traps and lures and are checking them nightly (in addition to taking the mattress off and checking and vacuuming it and the box spring). All of the bugs we'd found[list=1] had wings, and then last night we found this:

    It looks, to me, grayer and less defined than the pictures I've seen online of instars or nymphs, but despite spending hours staring at bed bug photos, I certainly am not an expert.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    I did not seem to succeed in uploading the photos, and would be grateful if someone could tell me how to do so from my PC. Is there a way to put the jpgs in the post?

    Try imgur.com

    For the record, I am NOT an expert.
    My advice/opinion comes from past experience(s) with bed bugs and what I have read on-line.
