    Hi, I have a sofa bed so on Saturday morning I hid the sheets and duvets under bed and I could swear I didn't see any stains but when I took it out later that night there were stains. The next morning I checked the couch everywhere and walls next to it the table didn't find any evidence. The stains didn't resurface since and no one has bites. Te bottom left picture the stains are wet. But I can't help to worry. https://www.reddit.com/r/Bedbugs/comments/amk0vg/is_this_blood_stain_bed_bug_scare/?utm_source=reddit-android

    Hi,

    If you read the “blood spots on sheets primer” you can see that anything red does not confirm bedbugs. If you have conducted a thorough inspection and not found any live samples, cast skins or faecal traces then it’s unlikely to be bedbugs.

    There are many reasons for red blood spots and they vary from a one off to ongoing issues.

    I would certainly not be assuming bedbugs from this alone.

    Hope that helps.
