    Help please! We are traveling around Europe and may have picked up something g along the way. We are getting bitten and found "black pepper flakes" on the bed. They do not smear and when I ran them under water they did not bleed. Any ideas? Fleas? Bed bugs? Mutes? Help, please, so I can figure out how to treat them. Here is a photo:

    Hi,

    Does not match anything associated with bed bugs. Clearer images may be needed or if you passing through London drop them into my office for analysis.

    Hope that helps.

    Is it even possible for bed bugs to leave "flakes" on sheets? Pretty sure they leave stains, not flakes

    Yes-- experts have told us that the description "black pepper flakes" doesn't match anything bed bug-related.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
