    Found this blood spot in my bed. I also saw a weevil beelte in my bed! I have no signs, and clear climb ups. I do have bites on my legs as well, that could be from being outdoors over the weekend. If this was to be from a bed bug it would have to be a fully grown one right? And I most likely would have seen signs? Thanks in advanced

    Blood is not a confirming sign of bed bugs. Many things can cause blood smears. If it was indeed from you squishing a bed bug while on the bed, it wouldn't have to be an adult as all stages would have fresh blood in them after feeding.

    I am not an expert, any advice I give should be considered as amateur advice and not taken as fact. I mean well with all my posts and try to give back. If you plan on using any of my advice, I suggest doing research into said advice to make sure it is in your best interest.
