    I was wondering if anyone knew whether bed bug droppings HAD to be black pin-point sharpie marker looking in appearance. This morning I woke up and noticed that I had 3 grayish (very, very pale) lines on one of my pillows. I took 2 pictures of them but am unsure how to upload them and wasn't sure if anyone would be able to see them clearly.
    My boyfriend and I have been using passive monitors for the past 2 months and so far we haven't seen anything, but we also haven't put in our new bed frame yet, and I'm not sure if that would deter them from using the traps even if the monitor is still placed at the head of the bed on the box spring.

    The color and shape are not at all consistent with bed bug fecal.

    There is a how to post pics in the stickies, it's simple to do.

    While faecal is often described as black and felt pen like to do so is akin to calling Van Goghs sunflowers a bunch of flowers in a vase. There is a world of detailwhich can only be deciphered with a clear and infocus image.

    Hope that helps.
