    I slept on the couch one day last week and had a bunch of bites on my back. I thought they could be mosquito bites but then found these guys hanging out on the back of my couch in the seams. I felt sick. Any idea how long they could have been here?

    I've treated the couch and am in the process of inspecting and treating everything else but have not found any more. I'm hoping this is a mild indmfestation and I can wipe them out quick.

    Not sure the img worked so here's the links
