    hello!

    after weeks of bites on my 3-year old and I (some single, a few in twos or 4 in a curved line, some more mosquito-bite looking, some more like exema rashes --like across my knuckles, and quite a few on my hands), i have found the following marks on our sheets.

    inspector 1 said "not bedbugs", but when inspector 2 found the small black one (which I am posting first) he said THAT is black digested blood from a bed bug.

    can any of you knowledgable folks weigh in?

    Can you post a closeup pic?
    The only way I know of is to use bedbug blue (I forget the name).
    I don't have it because it seems overly expensive.

    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.

    Hello,

    Thanks so much for your response! Here are two closer-ups of the one the inspector seemed surest of ... it's very small so difficult to get a close-up with my phone.

    Any thoughts? I will also look into that product. Do you know if it still works after sheets have been laundered?

    best,
    s
