    Hello. I found these on the bed frame on the head end. Are they fecal spots? They were a bit darker (like the bottom most one) before I ran a finger over them to see if they would smear (they did, but more like pencil than a pen if that makes any sense). I cleaned a few spots with a bit of water on a q tip and it did not leave a stain behind.

    If I use BB Blue to test, will the DE I dusted the frame with affect the results in any way?

    Thank you so much for the help.

    Hi,

    Does not appear to be faecal and no DE will not affect bed bug blue.

    Hope that helps.
