    Trying to hone my BB stain detection skills. I checked out the fecal stains on wood pics and I don't think these are BB related but still somewhat unsure. Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Similar in appearance but not.

    Thank you. I also found this. It looks like it has blood in it maybe so I didn't want to test it with BB Blue. It looks fresh. Thank you again.

    Could it be BB fecal?

    On the grounds you don’t test red things because they can’t be faecal and given that non of the example images of bedbug faecal are red I would be airing on the side of NO.
