    We had bed bugs back in October, we found one dying bug and had blood stains on our sheets. These blood stains were more smeared and bigger than this tiny one

    We've been told that our neighbours have had a ongoing infestation and we had a precautionary set of two sprays as requested by their best control (I think they think it's us). Pest control couldn't find any signs of bedbug activity, although we did find two very old, crusty dead bed bugs under our bed. I'm 41 weeks pregnant (a week overdue), so it's an understatement to say this is an anxious time for me.. I'm hoping that this is too small to indicate a bed bug. Neither me or my husband react to bites so it can be a bit of a guessing game.

    We're using interceptors. I found this on my side of the bed this morning

    Please see the "blood spots on sheets primer" which will illustrate that this is the wrong colour for it to confirm bedbugs.

    I would check the useful tools section on better advise for monitoring than visual inspection alone.

    Hope that helps.
