    I couldn't find any black marks as people have mentioned looking for, but found several yellow dots on my sheet. Are these evidence of bed bugs, or something else?

    They could have been there before, I'm not sure.

    Apologies for the bad quality. They're like an off-yellow color.

    Probably not. Uric acid staining is secondary to the amount of black fecal staining that occurs with bedbugs.

    Just to make sure I understand -- you're saying that if I saw uric acid stains (lighter in color I think?) that I should see more fecal stains (of which I see zero).

    If bed bugs are biting, there will be fecal stains left nearby.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
