Question
2 bugs after fogging
2 bugs after fogging  
Hi,

I have had quite a time with different bugs over the past year.  I think that these might be bed bugs, but not sure.  I live in an older apartment for the past 2 months and have been getting bitten by something a lot.  My location is Killeen, TX.  Thank you, Mary

Answer
Mary,

I can't see these clearly but they don't look like bed bugs, see http://www.livingwithbugs.com/bed_bug.html for a comparison picture. If you can get a closer, lighter image (try using an ordinary flashlight to light the subject) I'd be glad to take another look.
