Dear Mr. Bug Man,
What kind of bug is this? It was found meandering across my mattress at approximately 8am PST this morning. It is very small, perhaps 1/8″ of an inch. I told my girlfriend it came from her and I wanted her tested. We are now broken up. I need your help to get her back.
PS. I didn’t kill it even though I wanted to. It did no good. She’s still really mad at me.

Dear BrokenupbyBug,
We can understand your girlfriend’s reaction.  No girl wants to be told she has bugs.  This Varied Carpet Beetle is a common household pest.
