    Hello,

    I found this thing crawling on my arm, pretty certain this is some kind of beetle, but of course paranoia takes place, am I correct? Also does whatever this is come from outside or is this an indoor bug.

    Thanks in advance.

    yes, possibly a drugstore beetle.

    Please help!! I found these blood dripping on my son’s bed this morning. It’s towards to top section of the bed. Lithe stains are on the mattress protector. He has a foam top on his mattress also. I can find no signs of any bugs or anything anywhere and he has no. Bites. But these look like bed bug blood stains I think!!! Please help me because I feel like I’m losing my mind. I bought two types of traps to try and catch anything but the exterminators all charge a fortune to come check or say it’s too soon. Does anyone have opinion if this is bed bug related??

    Can't see what you want to post, but start a new post with your question and pictures instead of using this one.
