Help identifying bug corpse and skin


Hello, I found this small bug and what looks like a cast skin near my bed. Are either of these signs of bed bug infestation? Lately, I wake up with new small insect bites every morning, and I am starting to be a bit paranoid.

Thank you very much.


Hello, and welcome to our forum. What you have there is a black carpet beetle. They are shaped a lot like a bed bug, but the antennae and markings are very different. They’re a pretty common household pest, but they only eat fibers like carpet, clothing, and upholstered furniture. They’re not bloodsuckers like bed bugs.
