Hello, there is a concern about bugs in the couch at my workplace. Now we’ve had an exterminator visit 3 times in the last month. Twice he brought a dog to sniff for any sign of bed bugs. All three visits he told us we had nothing to worry about if our concern was bed bugs. He mentioned it could potentially be fleas since we are located in a very pet friendly location. But im still not entirely convinced. I’m attaching one photo of a picture of the bug. And another photo next to a basic ink pen to compare size. What is your opinion here? Thanks!

Bed Bug

Dear Zach,
Thanks for including the ballpoint pen tip for scale.  This is a Bed Bug, and its small size indicates there is probably a breeding population of Bed Bugs in the couch.  If the exterminator did not address the issue, and if the couch isn’t valuable, you might want to consider discarding it.
