    Found on wicker basket that holds my yarn. Hard and won't come off with qtip. Throwing it away either way but if I put my yarn in a laundry mesh bag on highest heat would that be okay or should I just toss it?

    I don't see anything that would make me think bed bugs. Yarn in the dryer will be just fine, don't throw it out.

    What whispers the whisker?

    Do you think I could keep the basket? Spray it down with alcohol maybe? Got treated 7 months ago and bf recently got two bites but we are supposed to be moving out this weekend so we are discarding almost all living room furniture. Im so paranoid

    Personally wicker is one of the things that is near impossible for me to treat and feel 100% about, so I prefer to discard it when it becomes infested.

    My nightmare would be a wicker framed sofa bed.
    It would also be the name of my band if I were musically inclined.

    I don't believe so, but it would help if you were closer to the specimens before taking a picture. Zooming in just distorts the image.

    Sorry about that. Is it because they're so big? Maybe it's roach feces? Not sure the exact specifications on identifying bb ones

    Hi,

    That's last image is 100% not bed bugs.

    The pattern and pigmentation reminds me of bacterial / fungal growth rather than faecal.

    Hope that helps.
