What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Possibly Bed Bugs?

Dear Bugman,
We found two of these critters alive (on the ceiling) and promptly squashed them. My wife found several dead ones throughout the house (living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom). Our floor is carpeted throughout the house except for the kitchen and the bathroom.
I was bitten several days ago but I’m not sure what it was. We believe these are bed bugs. We have also turned our house upside down trying to find their ”home” but we found no clusters of bugs, droppings, or larvae associated with bed bugs. Are they bed bugs and why are we finding most of them dead?

Dear In Fear of Bed Bugs,
The good news is that you do not have Bed Bugs.  The bad news is that you have recently hatched Cockroach Nymphs.

    I understand that bed bugs die at temperatures around 120 degrees. I like the idea of using a steamer to control them and I found one for that purpose at… https://sites.google.com/site/bedbugpatrolnaturaltreatment/. It costs about $40 and is as portable as an iron.
