    Hello. This just happened a half hour ago. I went to the dollar store to purchase wrapping paper. When I got back I started to wrap some items and when I opened a new roll of the paper and started, I noticed what looked very much like a dead bed bug smashed on the inside of the paper. I panicked, grabbed a trash bag, ripped off the paper id already used and threw everything outside. What are the odds that this could cause an infestation? I am freaking out slightly. Thank you.

    I would definitely post a picture of the bug you found.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    I would but I threw the paper out immediately. So I'm asking on the assumption that it definitely was a bed bug. It was dead, smashed against the inside of the paper and smeared a light brown. No blood. Definitely the exact bed bug shape though.
