    Hi there,

    I'm deeply worried that I have bed bugs in my vacation home. Full of anxiety to the point of sickness. New bites, but they could also be a worsened case of chronic hives from stress, or another type of allergic reaction. Can somebody please ID the following picture of the inner portions of my bed frame? I'm worried the mess there (particularly the patches of dark dots) are made by bed bugs. For reference, no stains on sheets or bed clothes. No live or dead bugs found.

    Picture

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Aside from the moth all that is "normal debris" for a sleeping area that is missing its monthly clean.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Don't see a moth, but a firefly (lampyrid beetle), a small feather and debris.
