Bed Bug

Dear Richard,
Your man cave has Bed Bugs.  Was the recliner gotten second-hand?  Second-hand furniture is a common way to introduce Bed Bugs to a new location.  We suspect you are getting bitten while you recline.  Bed Bugs are blood suckers that will feed on sleeping humans.  They can be difficult to eradicate.

Thank you for your quick response. I was worried about that. I’ve never seen them before and they looked 90% like the pictures but with bugs never know. Thank you again I’m throwing it out and taking action to get rid of them!

Dear Mario,
This is a Bed Bug, and if you found one, there are likely more.  Infestations of Bed Bugs can be difficult to eradicate.  They are blood suckers that will feed on humans while sleeping.

Indian Meal Moth

Dear Lyne,
This is not a Fly.  It is an Indian Meal Moth, a species that infests stored grain products.  We suggest you check your pantry for the site of the infestation.  Perhaps that corn meal you only use at Thanksgiving or that long forgotten oatmeal at the back of the cupboard.  They will also infest spices. The larvae feed on grain.  The adults do not.
