    Hello everyone. Haven't posted in awhile because I'm pretty sure our bb problem is resolved but I'm not positive. I still wake up thinking they're there, I keep searching and looking and haven't found any signs. But still...I wish I could accept they're gone but I just can't.

    We had our 4th treatment on May 1. Another inspection 2 weeks later. I requested another one for this Tuesday just to "be sure". And we're also coming up on the end of our 90 day guaranty so I'm still freaking out.

    Would someone please look at this image and advise if you think it's bb related? I can take it if it is. Well, not really but i need to know. From what I've been through and researched I don't think it is but I'm not sure. It is at the head of the bed (that's never ever touching a wall again..)

    Does anyone know what this might be? I'm sorry to ask again I'm just worried.

    I hope an expert can help you. But since no one had answered you yet, I'll tell you what I would do.

    That material looks like encasement material. I googled images of "bed bug feces on encasement" to see how feces would look if they pooped there. Maybe you could compare those images to yours, too. To me the images look different than what you posted, but I'm not an expert. Or you could just test it with the Bed Bug Blue product to be sure.

    It's good that things seem to be going well! I hope we hear a success story from you soon.

    Thank you livingagain. Yes, the stain is on an encasement and seemingly not anywhere I could squash a bug by rolling over at night or anything. Who knows at this point.

    I question every stain, every spot, every itch, every bite. And at this time of year where I live if you're outside for 5 seconds you will get bit by something.

    Hi,

    A clearer and closer image is needed.

    It does not appear to be bed bug related though.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you David, I was hoping you'd reply

    PCO is coming today for an inspection. I always get so nervous every time they come.
