    I just moved into my apartment and noticed a few tiny spots on the wall. They're small and some are by themselves but others are in small clusters or have 2 or 3 spots touching each other. They don't smear at all, rather just wipe away with water and pressure. They range from dark brown to a lighter brown and are pretty much round but some have a point to one end.

    Hi,

    Images help, descriptions rarely do.

    The picture I posted is of one cluster of them, they are not raised at all. They are all also within about 3 feet of a window.

    Odd location, wouldn't make me think bed bugs.

    Bird dreams are not admissible in court.

    Hi,

    Almost certainly fly rather than bed bug, location and fine detail of the cluster and their distribution is wrong.

    Its closer to this image:

    Thank this image:

    Hope that explains.
