    Can anyone tell if this is a bed bug? I’ve found two. My landlord said the first one wasn’t a bed bug but now that I’ve found a second I’m panicking

    That looks like a black carpet beetle to me but I’m not an expert. I’ve had them before though. I can tell it isn’t a bed bug though for sure.

    Not a black carpet beetle, but is one of the carpet beetles.

    I used dicaetemous earth food grade to get rid of mine that was a really bad infestation when I first moved into my apartment. If you keep it around the edges of your room
    In a fine dust it works like a charm.

    Diatomaceous earth. It's not a dust to apply and create obvious piles. Crack & crevice, light applications. CimeXa dust will work faster than DE. Also not advocated to apply, leave and vacuum up and repeat. It is abrasive and will ruin vacuum cleaners.
