    Hello,

    We just moved into a new house and while cleaning the baseboards I came across these stains and would like to know if they are bed bug fecal stains. I didn't find any casings or bugs, just the stains. This is in the master bedroom and no where else in the house. The previous owners did say the house had fleas when they moved in. But they also said 3 to 4 years ago they had bed bugs at a different house, but they said they replaced everything before moving.

    Are these bed bug fecal stains?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    No, the fine detail is not correct for bed bug faecal, it’s close enough to warrant testing with bed bug blue but so would expect it to be clear.

    I would advocate monitoring as a way to prevent any introduction getting out of control but the FAQs and useful tools sections cover that.

    Hope that helps.
