    Hi everyone,

    I don't think my first post worked - my internet is not so great at the mo.

    I was wondering if someone could help me ID this mark I found on my bed about two days ago, it was on the sheet under my pillows. It didn't smudge when I rubbed with a damp cloth but only when I scratched at it with my nail. There are no other marks on any of my bedding or on the bed or bed frame.

    I had a very bad experience a few years ago with bird/rat mites in student accommodation so try to be vigilant and not get too worried but it does cause a lot of anxiety for me. I have had problems with sleep or getting bites ever since.

    The pest control guy who I saw when I was having problems as a student told me to always check your hotel room no matter how nice it seems. I stayed in a hotel about a week ago that may have had bugs. I thought I saw evidence of stains and I moved rooms very quickly and was careful to check my things and wash everything when I got home. However, I was travelling with family so am worried something could have stowed away with them...I do have a couple of bites but I have been bitten by bed bugs on one occasion in a hotel a couple of years ago and my reaction was quite severe then, I was covered head to toe and they were large and very itchy and these bites are not really bothering me.

    Thank you in advance for your help!
