    Hey so I've been getting bit recently (or at least I've been having some itchy reaction with red bumps) and it's been driving me crazy so I've been looking for bed bugs and couldn't find anything untill I checked two shirts that we're under my bed and covered with dust. They had these little bug casings but I can't tell if they're bed bugs or carpenter beetles or something.

    Of course my first post and I forgot to say stuff. The casings are super brittle. They all look like they've been bursted out of. One of those pictures in the gallery has a crushed one I think.
