    Hi,

    These were on my pillow when I woke up. Smeared when I touched them. Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi,

    Visually close but 99% unlikely, if you have it test with Bed Bug Blue but I would expect it to be negative as the density of pigment is not right for bedbugs.

    Also thanks for taking clear images, when things are out of focus they cant shift my eyes for a few minutes which forces breaks and also adds to the frustration of not being able to tell as much about it.

    Hope that helps.

    Ok ordered Bed Bug blue. Hopefully this will help rule out whatever may be going on. I just wish I could find a resolution to this and feel safe sleeping in my own home again. I know, sounds stupid but there just seems to be too many coincidences. Anyway, thanks again to everyone who posts on here and to the experts who take the time out of their days to help people on here.

    Hi,

    If you have that "too many coincidences" feeling the antidote is to focus on facts.

    So often people feel its bedbugs but cant prove it, most commonly that is because it is in fact not bedbugs.

    Agreed. I guess because everytime I get beyond bed bugs something new pops up like this morning and sends me down the rabbit hole again. The facts are I still haven't found a live bug, cast or confirmed fecal. Just mystery reactions. Back to the drawing board.

    Hi,

    Knowing you do that and acknowledging it is the first step to controlling it. You just need to be mindful of the influence it has on you and stay out of the rabbit holes until it’s confirmed you need to go down them.

    Take care.

    David
