If you’re looking for signs of bed bugs, one of the most common signs you might see is their feces.

Here are some photos showing bed bug fecal stains on a headboard and mattress in a hotel room:

Thanks for sharing. Now I know what to look for and where to look when I am on my extended vacations and weekend getaways.

I travel a lot for work and started checking for bedbugs after reading a front-page newspaper article in Tampa Florida about 2 years ago. I absolutely have seen those little black smudges n teh mattress (but no bugs) and didn’t realize what it was. These photos definitely heighten awareness and are very helpful . Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Steven.

Too many people do not learn about searching beds before sleeping in a new place until it’s too late. Glad you know how and please keep spreading the word to everyone you know.
