    hi,

    I have some bites on my leg, but not sure if they are BB related or not. I had a look around my room and found these marks under my bed in the box unit, I don't think they are fecal but would like to confirm first. Im not sure if the bites are maybe from something else, I was outside in the evening prior so maybe wasp or midget bite.

    I couldn't find any other evidence after extensive searching and just came across a few of these very tiny bugs, but don't think they are bb nymphs? I think book louse but would like to confirm from expert.

    Hi,

    No that's no faecal its just the classic sign that you have neglected the cleaning of that area and might have a damp / humidity issue.

    Yes the sample is a book louse which might be related to the situation above.
