    These black dots keep appearing in the seams of my mattress shell. Could it be bed bug droppings??

    No they are too particulate in nature and more angular than is feasible with bed bug faecal material.

    These items were "placed" as a dry material as opposed to being a liquid that has dried. Bed bug faecal can only exist as a dried or drying spots that is partially absorbed into the material or as a spherical from if deposited on a hydrophobic surface.

    Hope that helps.
