    Please help - I have had a bed bug scare after finding out my boyfriend has them. I have developed a phobia since and cannot sleep or get homework done until I know. It's a lighter brown color (kinda) than is shown in the pictures, and I can't tell for sure if those are legs under it. I have DE down and have sprayed Ecoraider twice. I'm about to be moving out and can't leave this for someone else to deal with if I have them but I also don't have the money to get an exterminator as i work a part time job and am a full time college student. My landlord will NOT pay.

    -In Oklahoma City-

    Thanks guys

    Looks like a ventral view of a female bed bug abdomen. No thorax (so no legs), no head. Too bad the image wasn't larger picture size, but clarity looks good. The pale, vertical area is the flexible membrane in the basal section of the abdomen and doesn't continue toward the tip. Looks like DE and EcoRaider is working.
