    Hi Bedbuggers,

    Woke up on Saturday morning to find the attach bug making an escape on my pillow. After years working in hotels I’m a little paranoid, but I’m unsure whether this is a bed bug or not. Please help?

    It’s not. It’s an adult carpet beetle or close relative. If you search the forum for carpet beetles you will see many posts about them.

    Hope that helps.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro
