    I just moved into a new apt (2 day in), was too lazy to settle so I slept without cleaning / bothering anything since I just arrived from a 30 hours flight. Doesn't help that the bedroom does not have lightings.

    Finally did some cleaning today (mop, etc) and found some bug carcasses. At noon, I found some rashes (in the photos) which I dismissed as dust / cleaning-products allergy.

    Going home, I was afraid of it being bedbugs, so I put on my flashlights to the window platform (around head of matress position, but I use air matress and have no furnitures yet)

    And I found out bugs.. fml

    Are these bedbugs? I have videos of them running around too

    Unfortunately the office is closed, and the security guard told me I should check with them in the morning. I do have a couple of them dead (body intact, not crushed) as proof on top of a paper

    Those are beetles, bed bugs do not have developed wings.

    What would you do if 5 said yes and 5 said no?
