    I found a little black tiny "dropping" on the sheet. It was self contained and slightly sticky and wet-ish. I put it on a paper towel and used some saliva and it right away looked dark red and was spreading (I wish I took that first reaction pic but I didn't). I was able to squish it and watch it turn brown and dry to a lighter color. It completely dissolved.
    Does this sound like bed bug fecal characteristics??
    My daughter has been getting clusters of bites so I've been on the hunt looking for evidence.

    Here's the mark left behind on sheet... the camera messes with it a bit, however, you can see it left a slight stain.
