    Hello! My first post. Not sure why I'm so joyful, but thank you for having such a detailed website and most professional of experts.

    Just discovered this on my comforter and had some skin reactions lately as hopefully someone can let me know what they think. Thank you

    Doesn't look good and would need closer inspection.. Can't say 100% as it looks like you rubbed it?

    If you can, I would purchase Bed Bug Blue to test it or have a professional inspection done.

    Good luck!

    Greatly appreciate your quick reply. These were dry stains, so I wet the stain. The stain had not smeared, this is exactly how it came and I saw it. thank you. Would it still be BB fecal?

    Hi,

    I downloaded and cropped the image just now:

    As you can see from the "pockets" where the stain has not transferred which correspond tot he low points in the weave this could not be formed through bed bug faecal which is liquid.

    Hope that helps.

    David you are a saint. Thank you for being The Godfather to all. So one more question: referring to the stain. You believe that the stain is NOT bedbugs fecal then? Thank you.

    Not sure why the last 3 had just a square pop up. Apologize in advance if it is duplicated.

    Don't forget. Fresh poop will smear. Don't think that's bedbug related.

    Hi--
    I have edited them all so the links work.
    Please just paste in the URL (web address) to make a working link.
    Or, you may see the option for BBcode (forum code) on imgur, which creates embedded images. Sometimes I see it, sometimes not.

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

    We ordered the bug testing kit. But until then, could an expert please determine this as well. Grateful for your time and effort. There are three pictures of the spots. Thank you https://imgur.com/gallery/Fs5wt
