    At this point, I'm resigned that I do indeed have them. I just discovered this on my comforter cover. It must be at least a day or two old because it's been super hot here so I have not even had it on my bed.

    I have still yet to find any cast skins, live or crushed bugs or fecal stains. But things are starting to add up - and not in a good way. I checked both passive monitors again and still nothing.

    I have a canine inspection booked for 5 days from now.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    That stain does not confirm bed bugs.

    If you have a look at the blood spots on sheets primer you will see reference images.

    Hope that helps.

    I am happy to answer questions in public but will not reply to message sent directly or via my company / social media. I am here to help everyone and not just one case at a time.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    Thanks David,

    Yes, I realize it does not outright confirm. I do not have Bed Bug Blue currently to test. But it's similarity to many stains that have tested positive is odd/suspicious and worthy of note. (At least for me.)

    Thanks again.
