    2 weeks ago I found out a friend of mine had a confirmed bed bug infestation. Before finding out, I had been in her car and home and she'd been in my car, but not in my home. Anyway, I found 2 giant welts on my knee shortly after finding out she had an infestation and panicked. I called out pest control and got a negative visual inspection on 4/3. On 4/7, I called out a bed bug K9 from a different pest company with a negative inspection of just my bedroom. The same K9 came out 4/11 and inspected my bedroom again, all other bedrooms, my living room, and my car and gave negative inspections of all. Anyway, I'm still waking up with mysterious bites and I found some spots on my blankets that weren't there before. The spot does not smear when rubbed, but instead bled this yellowish/brownish color. I am posting this there. is this bed bug poop? could I have small infestation the dog and pest inspector missed?

    Hi,

    It does not appear to be faecal.

    Its hard to explain but the density and opacity of the material is wrong, the brown is too "wooden"/chocolate and not the deeper brown yellow you can see from the image and its smear below:

    Its complex describing the subtle differences in colour and texture because there is no easy universal syntax. In part because most people don't work at that level of detail.

    Hope that explains.

    Hello, just another quick question: Does bed bug fecal matter usually smear on fabric the way it does in your picture?
