    Are you asking if they're hard and rough? I mean, I've not examined and played with them, but the ones I felt were smooth and pliable.

    This piece of tape has eggs, nymphs, and fecal spots... if this helps you at all?

    No, have nothing to do with eggs. Same eggs on different backgrounds and with or without lighting.

    When clicked, the caption says: A patchwork quilt of plankton net (each square around 1/2 mm), bed bug feces, metabolic waste and eggs for the fall. Plankton netting was the substrate upon which the bed bugs have harbored. Unfortunately, not all pictures have the same focus - but they're close! Who knows? The pattern may catch on and you'll see it on Fashion Week runway someday. I originally wanted to stress the use of coloration to help see bed bug eggs against contrasting color backgrounds.
