    It's the first picture I'd like an ID for (red sheet)

    Hi,

    No, not faecal, nothing like the example images once you look at the finer detail.

    I would recommend more time looking at the reference images to see the level of detail to look for.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks very much! Most of the images of bed bug feces seem to show the round ink stain types, but I can't find a good example of a smear

    Have you seen any of those round stains large enough to have created the stain that you see?

    After that the colour is also incorrect.
