When making a hotel reservation, most of us focus on smoking or non-smoking, bed size, and amenities. To be safe, when traveling, there are telltale signs of bedbugs you can look for when you check into your hotel room. If you’ve been in a room infested with bedbugs, even for a short time, be sure to check your luggage carefully.
Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs the size of a speck of dust and can produces as many as 2-3 generations in just a month. The best way to know for sure if there are bed bugs in your home or not is to have a professional K9 Scent Detection team inspect your home. To schedule a time for me to inspect your home for bedbugs, call me at (408) 389-4225 or email me at jay [at] k9bugfinder [dot] net.

While cabin-camping, I found these cast skins on the pillow and wonder if they could be from bed bugs? I forgot to put a penny in the photo for size reference, but in the 2nd photo you can see compared to a toddler's sweater that was laying nearby. Get some sleep, read this site's FAQS but not a lot of the postings (so you get good facts) and come back in the morning and see if any experts have answered.
Most people are surprised that shed skins look so much like bed bugs — kind of like the bed bug took off a full-body suit. Note that we also have a helpful FAQ with photos from Franco Casini which compare bed bug shed skins with those of German cockroaches, dermestid beetle larvae, carpet beetles, and also an image which compares shed skins of bed bug nymphs of various stages: What do bed bug cast skins look like? Shed skins of larval carpet beetles look very different from those of bed bug nymphs because the CB L is elongate and have legs way up front and does not resemble an adult beetle at all; the BB N resembles an adult BB in body shape. Yes, you can certainly locate adult beetles, larvae, shed skins, their droppings (dry, not released as wet like bed bugs).


I note on the first closeup dark material in the middle skin extending from the anus into the abdomen. I find it quite confusing that the trachae are fine white hairs and the background material also has fine white fibres. Actually there is nothing to do to get rid of the smell because you don’t know the origin. Question Lou, when the body is fully engorged, does that blood fill the entire Bed Bugs body? The shed skin is only the skin, the outer covering plus what internal structures are derived from the same cells in the embryo.
As a snake does, bed bugs must molt or shed their skin to grow to the next stage of development (entomologists call these stages an “instar”) until they become adults.
In accordance with the AUP and FTC (legal requirements) I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding.
On a side note, the TV and two boxes have been in my apartment over a week, what should I do about the TV? I can only suggest that since Lou is stumped as well you look for more samples and possibly consider sending the samples off for an ID so they have the benefit of the sample in front of them.
Hope that helps, I suspect this is not the only sample of this that has been posted recently so if possible we need to work out what it is. The first thing to do is peel back the sheets and run your fingers along the seams of the mattress. While bedbugs don’t fly, they can move quickly and may hitch a ride on your suitcase. Is the dark material just fecal matter stuck to the anus that extrudes during molt or a portion of the hindgut wall that detaches during molt?


Also, I woke up last week with what I thought were misquetto (sp) bites (3 of them in a row) that were very swollen and very itchy. I feel itchy sometimes and find myself scratching these little itches I have….can they get on your clothes and hang out in them? These shed skins are found in bed bug harborages and can be a tell tale sign of the presence of bed bugs. I have not found any other evidence of bed bugs yet, but I recently found out that I have been exposed to them over the last couple weeks while helping my mom move.
Cast skins almost always have the legs intact and the only ways to get them off would not leave the body that intact. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bedbug infestations in domestic and commercial settings.
Do you think a hotel would tell you honestly if they’ve had a bed bug problem when you called for a reservation? If you look closely, you can see dead bed bugs on the carpet between the mattress and the wall. Also, I brought her TV and a couple boxes of documents and family photos into my apartment last week. Both bugs have blood from previous (5th instar nymph) stage still in their digestive tracts. In actual infestations bed bugs not only infest beds, furniture, etc., but also will live in piles of shed skins. Newly molted adult females may be able to produce eggs and mate before their first adult blood meal.
