    Hi folks.

    Just returned from a 2 week holiday and noticed a handful of eggs on my bed covering. I squashed one and it was somewhat "juicy." I haven't experienced any other signs of any activity in this property at all beforehand. Furthermore I understand(?) bedbugs only lay eggs after a feed, I can't fathom why they'd be so drastically out in the open and numerous especially when there has been nobody in the bed for 2 weeks.

    It's the height of summer and where I live there are many flys and insects both inside and out. To my eye it's more elongated than a bedbug egg - i.e. more like a grain of basmati rice than risotto rice as I know bedbug eggs to resemble. Therefore I'm leaning on the side of it being a house fly or bluebottle egg.

    I've had bedbugs in the past, and while my instinct suggests it's more likely to do with the flies, it's got me spooked enough to want some peace of mind. I know all too well bedbugs cannot be underestimated so I try to remain vigilant and would really appreciate a second opinion.

    Many thanks in advance for any help, this is a great resource.

    Perhaps because I edited the post rapidly trying to get the images to attach?

    They're a bit too long and don't have the visible hatch, not bed bug eggs.

    Thanks for the place-holder, Big Dummy
