    We had a bed bug scare in the summer where we found a bed bug and immediately had an exterminator come and they treated the place two times. We only ever found a bed bug the first time and have not seen anything since (almost 6 months ago now).

    I made my bed last and went to sleep and when I got home tonight I went up to my bed and found a few smears/ spots, a total of 5 spots, 2 on my fitted sheet and 3 on my cover sheet. The two spots on the fitted sheet appear to be two very straight lines (especially one of them), and the spots on my blanket sheet appear to be dots.

    Can anyone ID these blood stains, really hoping my worst nightmare isn't back.

    Thank you for looking,

    I'm not sure anyone can ID blood smears but I'll give my opinion.
    It is likely not a BB.
    There are to many other reasons to see blood.

    I had a blood stain on my white sheets so I wanted to share this.
    It took out my stain completely so I am a big fan now:
    OxiClean™ MaxForce™ Pre-Treater Gel Stick

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.
