    Hi,

    Can you please tell me if these blood stains are from bed bugs? Thank you. (There's 2 spots, 2 photos of each- 1 with flash, 1 not).

    I am happy to answer questions in public but will not reply to message sent directly or via my company / social media. I am here to help everyone and not just one case at a time.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    I read that and looked at the pictures, so basically a red blood stain is inconclusive?

    Yes, and in most cases is not related to bed bugs.

    It's essential to focus on:

    • Live samples
    • Cast skins
    • Faecal traces

    And keeping an open mind until you find them.
