    Hello !
    After doing a self treatment with Temprid, Bedlam and Cimexa (please don’t follow this, as it could lead to a very costly and ineffective treatment) we have not seen bugs, other than dead ones. Our beds are encased, including the box spring. I found These spots on box spring, I do remember bed bug dropping are black, but could this be mildew instead? It’s just on the box spring and no where else, also no live bugs seen yet.

    Those are not bed bug related, too diffuse and too homogeneous black.

    Hope that helps.
