- Cimex & Gibbium
Here are some images of the shiny spider beetle and the common bed bug so you can see that bed bugs look like bed bugs. Lighting and focus was changed in the ones on the left. There are 3 spider beetles in each picture, the rest are bed bugs. The majority of bed bugs are adults, many with legs missing. See the scattered, slender bed bug legs. Thickened legs are on the spider beetles. Basically dorsal and ventral views of bed bugs and lateral views of spider beetle.

- Cimex Flakes - a bowl of sheds
Looks like a bowl of cereal flakes. Poured out shed skins and bugs from a bed bug rearing jar. Many months worth of exuviae. The live bugs also can be seen. In actual infestations bed bugs not only infest beds, furniture, etc., but also will live in piles of shed skins.
