Even hours after, a warm soapy cloth washed over stained areas, and VOILA! Gone from anywhere that's human skin.

Identifying a Tiny Brown Bug

Identifying a Tiny Brown Bug?I found this single bug walking on the bed after I came home from college classes. I am freaking out because it looked like a bed bug to me.

Or maybe when I went to walk my dog? Can they easily spread?
