    Would it be unusual to find bed bug fecal stains in a bag? In two of our bags I have found some dark black/brown stains along the seams that are permanent. There were no other signs present such as casings. We have never had any known infestations, just an exposure at Kalahari within the last few months. All of our passive monitors have been negative for about 2 months. I just have no clue what these stains could be and I’m still a little paranoid. I’ll try post links to the pics. Thanks in advance !

    Hi,

    While the colour is close it’s not faecal as the fine detail of the image is incorrect.

    Hope that helps.
