    Long story short. Inhav family come for Christmas who had confirmed bed bugs. Two weeks later we saw two bugs. We had a heat treatment, but a week later were getting bites. We got a K9 inspection that alerted. So we had another heat treatment a week before we moved. Now that we are in the home I have been seeing a few bumps here or there. Today after washing laundry I notice this on the inside of my sons onesie. I am literally shaking and in tears. The shirt was just washed so they look a little light. At the daycare you have to keep a change of clothes, this is a shirt that has been there a while but he hasnt needed it until last week. I dont know what to do! Are these fecal spots? His change of clothes is kepts in a container with a snap lid under his crib. I am so scared. I am literally crying. We are still paying for the first two thermal treatments!

    Can I test with Bed bug Blue even after the items were washed in the washer?

    Hi,

    It does not appear to be faecal.

    It appears to be what was fresh blood that has been through the wash a number of times. As such testing it with bed bug blue would not confirm bed bug it would/could confirm it was originally blood though but that information is of no assistance to you at this stage.

    Hope that helps.

    As I am further examining the blue onesie I am noticing that there are like brown specs that I can wipe away on most of the dots. Would that mean mold? Like the onesie was wet? The spots look brownish almost gray and they are over the inside of the onesie. I wouldd imagine if it was blood/fecal spots then the daycare would have seen that many bugs? The spots vary in sizes and are in the seems as well

    These are browing blackish specks that I was able to wipe away

    These are spots that are left after some wiping of these brown specks.

    It looks like mold to me, too. That would have to be a lot of bugs nesting in those things to be that much fecal material, I would think you would have to see shed skins and stuff, too, if it was really that much fecal. A container with a snap lid could encourage mold growth if something was damp.
