    Found a bat last Monday in bedroom. Then found 2 bugs. 1 on Tues on top of my pillowcase, 1 on Wed. on bathroom windowsill. Sent 1 to Cornell and 1 to PSU. Cornell says Bed bug, PSU says Bat bug. I found 2 more bugs today, 1 on top of bed sheet, 1 was on my hand about an hour after I put on a shirt from my bedroom! Bed shows no signs of Bed bug infestation although husband and I both have some random bites. Do I have Bed bugs or Bat bugs (bats in the house??), or worse...BOTH! Where should I send the 2 new bugs? Should they go together to 1 lab or separately to 2 different labs?
