    HI everyone, after a bedbug infestation today I found this in the children's bedroom. The kids and hubby had a few marks, some from Mosquitos but others were a bit different. And just the other day I got a duvet out of a vacuum sealed bag from last year (it had been washed at 60 degrees and then put in the drier at high temperature so I thought it was pretty safe to use).

    Fleas don't have long, filament-like antennae. Body too wide. This is a beetle.
