    After looking at your website, I'm pretty sure these are not bed bugs. However, since I've been driving myself crazy, I would still like confirmation from the experts. They are both about 1mm long. I have also included a photo of something that I would like confirmation that it is not a bed bug fecal stain. I haven't found any other evidence besides the items in the photos I'm including.

    We went on a 3 week long road trip staying in different hotels every night. I checked for bed bugs in each hotel room and we kept our luggage up off the floor. I did find one bed bug during the stay and we quickly got a different room on a different floor. I knew it was a bed bug since it exploded blood when I went to pick it up with a tissue. I'm just very concerned that we brought bed bugs home with us even though I checked each mattress fairly well.





    Thank you for your help to ID these bugs and stain.
