    I posted earlier, but no pictures. I just (sort of) figured out how to use
    Flickr (I hope).
    This is the bug Terminex said was a BB, but local PCO said was a roach. Sorry that I got the underside. Would take another photo, but the apartment manager confiscated it along with the bug casing I found (sadly, I forgot to photograph that), and won't return it.

    Not bed bug. I believe roach is correct. Too bad no dorsal view.

    Thank you!!! I still can't quite calm down because of all of the bites that we are getting, but it does make me feel better that ni actual BB have been found. May treat with the Temprid anyway, as we seem to have every other bug known to man in this apartment. Thanks again for your help!
