    I have been getting what I thought were mosquito bites for a few weeks. I checked, rechecked and checked again for signs of bed bugs. I found the "bug" in a crack of the headboard and the mark on the side of my mattress.
    Can you tell me what the white eggs feel like? are they hard? I don't know if there were some on the sheets or if it was just fuzz......

    You could just post the link to the picture.

    I'm not an expert. Just sharing what I learned from my experience.

    Just paste the link in next time. I corrected the one above. The error was that you had http:// twice.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Did you mean to post a second photo?

    I see only one (suspected blood stain on a Q tip. Note blood stains are not proof of bed bugs because they can have other causes.

    there are two pics. The q-tip has something that I found in a crack on my headboard and I thought it could be a bed bug egg. The second pic has is a stain on the side of my mattress.

    Hi,

    No its too diffuse to be faecal. Most likely a spot or cut.
