    Ok, so while doing weekly inspection under the couch (I need to find a way to get paid for this new part-time job I have of inspecting) I found on the bare hardwood floor, two patches of small white ROUND spheres, kind of stuck together, or drifted together. * The few other eggs we found a long time ago were definitely oval shaped, these are tiny round balls. I taped a couple and they sort of popped and squished inside the tape when I pressed them.

    Could these be BB eggs? What other insect lays little patches of round eggs in a relatively unprotected area of floor?

    Thanks, sorry if this is a waste of time question.

    *(For those Homeopaths out there, they looked like the tiniest hard homeopathic pill size...).

    Hi,

    Never seen a round egg and given that variation of such a basic feature of bedbug biology is highly unlikely I would say its not likely to be an egg.

    If you find more try and use a flat bed document scanner to get an image and post a link. Its so much easier to be certain with an image to work from.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, took a photo, but don't yet have an account to link to.

    Will try to get that soon, since I also want to post scans of small round white 'bbs' with a black dot in their abdomen. I'm confused why they're the shape of adults, but teeny tiny, and clearish/white round, not tan/clearish and longer shaped like the photos of nymphs. They've been caught in my climbups.
    Thanks again.
