    For some time I've been convinced I have bed bugs. We moved into a brand new house 2 weeks ago and I promptly put a brand new encasement (from Olympia brand I think) around the mattress, the same mattress from my old house. However, after 3 or 4 days I changed the sheets and noticed some dark ish blood spots, directly around the area my mid-section would be when sleeping. No visible bites. Tried to ignore it and tell myself it had something to do with my kitten having fleas. Kitten was moved into a different room.

    Now, a week later, I've stripped the sheets yet again and found 2 spots that look different, more like a streak, which is what is REALLY scaring me. I washed all bedding last night, and this morning I checked again and the encasement had ANOTHER new splotch of blood. I am very worried I have bed bugs. I've attached some photos of the various blood spots, but the streak is the one I want looked at closely. I also saw 2 of these weird bugs, but I think they are a type of beetle, not bed bug, hanging out in my window sill and barely moving. I also saw something that looks like maybe an encasement? Please help!!!! I've just recently had an open chest operation and post-op complications, so this is a horrible time to be having yet another problem
