    I visit my grandpa usually every weekend. My grandma passed late September 2016. One of the caregivers brought some bedding and it was discovered that they were bedbugs. Grandpa hired the professionals to heat the caregiver's room but not Grandma's bedroom as recommended. Fast forward 1.5 years later, I got some bite on my arm. Looks like a breakfast, lunch and dinner pattern. I slept on Grandpa's bed for a few hours before dawn. Then I saw some blood marks by Grandpa's side of the bed. He has bites daily on his body. I will attach pictures. My husband says that it is not bedbugs. I think that it is. Please help.

    I have 13 photos. Is there a way to attach photos or only a link? Thank you.

    There really isn't a breakfast, lunch, dinner pattern to bed bug bites, but can be multiple bites. You can place your pictures on a picture hosting site such as Flickr or imgur. http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/test-13

    Is this the breakfast, lunch and dinner bedbug bite pattern? I appreciate your help.

    No. Not a pattern like that.

    Thank you Loubug. Do you think from the other pictures of the blood marks and molted shell that it is a bedbug? Appreciate your help.

    No bed things here. The dark object is too small to view clearly.
