    Hi,

    Happy to see clear non bedbugs stated as such my non pro's as it helps diffuse anxiety.

    Might also be helpful to embed some examples images to illustrate clear differences so people can easily compare. I am pretty sure Lou and I both have open sharing and embedding on FlickR.

    I will start doing it more when I am in the office but I am often posting via a phone in the UK evening / small hours so it's not easy to do.

    Just a suggestion.

    Good idea.

    Rather than doing it in the forums, we can make these into FAQs if you send me the links and the permissions allow for embedding?

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Awesome Idea .
    Then the obvious none bedbugs posts could be directed to FAQ information as well comparing their bug all in one step..very nice

    Love the idea and the FAQ implementation.

    Not a pro. I have some knowledge and a success story, both thanks to this site.

    Hi,

    Here is my FlickR bedbugs album:

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/bedbugsuk/sets/72157634967512613/

    All the images there should be set so that anyone can embed. As always if any of the images are of use to this site let me know and I will dig out the full resolution versions.

    David

    Thanks, Lou and David.

    David, I thought you were suggesting some side by side images of bed bugs and various species?

    So really, there's more need for suggested samples for comparison.

    We can use user submitted photos here IF they are on flickr and allow embedding (some don't). If you see ones which should be a FAQ, please flag them and I will work on it. Of course, I can start with the beetle from the other day.

    If you instead want to submit some non-bed-bug photos, I can use those.

    We do have a few FAQs of this kind already (one using a spider beetle photo from Lou, another with a not-very-good book louse cell phone image submitted by a user).

    Thanks!
