    This is so tiny, and I just picked it off my guest room mattress. We haven't used this room in more than six months. We just had stuff stored in there. Because it wasn't occupied, we didn't declutter during the big BB declutter when we discovered them in my room in December. I just got brave enough to tackle this room. It is a floor above my room, where the BBs were found. Is this at all sign of bedbugs in this room? Is it a bug?

    Thanks in advance. I know I am paranoid, but I hate the idea that they could have been up there all this time.

    The photo is a bit blurry, but it looks like it has hairs? If it has hairs, its not a bb. Maybe an expert will have a better idea to its ID.

    Not an expert. Any advice I give is information gleaned via anxiety-fueled research of credible sources and expert posts here. Please research all advice before treating and consult a professional.

    Thank you. I don't think the hairs are from the bug-thing. I think those were just stuck to the mattress with this. Maybe they are feathers from a pillow or comforter. This pic is blurry. I will try to take another tomorrow.

    I took new pictures of the mystery object, along with another object I found in a laundry hamper. I don't think either of these are BBs. They don't even really look like bugs when I zoom in as they have no legs or clear horizontal stripes. However, the color and shape makes me question myself.

    My son also woke up with two new tiny bumps on his face this morning. I have one on my back. I think maybe pimples, but he is a little young and I find it odd to have one on my back after years of not really having acne. Neither of these objects were found in our rooms, but if I can rule them out as BBs, it will make me feel better overall. We have found no signs in my son's room since this all started. But the bumps worry me.

    I really don't want to find another BB, especially in these places, so perhaps I'm being overly optimistic. I thought I'd ask one more time for expert confirmation. I understand these aren't great photos. I have not had good light the last couple of days. I also know you are all very busy and thank you in advance for any help.

    Object found stuck to guest room mattress. Hairs are not part of bug, but other debris stuck to bed. I really don't think this is anything, but had to check for peace of mind.

    Object found in laundry basket. It might not even be a bug. If I zoom, I can make out a bit of horizontal stripes, but they aren't clear like a BB. Could it be a really old, petrified BB? I am losing my mind.
