    found this bug looks like a caterpillar but it is less than 1/8" long.

    Dusted it with delta dust. waited for 30 minutes and it is still alive. very small

    picture take at 200x with USB Microscope another pest control company told the client it was bed bugs. I told them I dont know what it is but i can say it is not a bed bug.... it was found in a bed between the matress and box springs.http://www.noroaches.net/bug_In_bed.jpg

    thanks

    carpet beetle larvae resemble caterpillars somewhat and will nest in bed linens. I have found them in the textile cover of a box spring before.

    That's the fuzzy buggers. I dusted with DE when I found them, and then we'd had Baker Pest Control doing the home quarterly, so they didn't survive long. We had a great applicator who came out no extra charge to treat, when I discovered them. (this was in Palm Coast).
