    I found this on the inside of my sleeper sofa frame. No other bug signs aside from skin reactions, got the all-clear from a K9 two weeks ago. Panicking. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi,

    I am not convinced it’s faecal but if it is non of it is fresh, you can see how they are more diffused in the edges than the freshly deposited examples.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the quick response, David. Shall I keep monitoring for now? As I mentioned, K9 inspection was fine and I’ve not found any other signs of bugs save skin reactions, which I know are not conclusive.

    Hi,

    Yes monitor and keep an eye on things and keep mindful of the fact that if you have found bedbugs to be stressful you are more likely to experience hyper sensitive skin.

    I think I should also mention that I’ve not been treated for bedbugs. I’ve been having skin reactions for about six months and severe anxiety, but have not found any evidence save these stains. Should I still monitor or call in another PCO? We moved in December, and I had different reactions in each apartment.

    Hi,

    As I said if that is faecal and I am not convinced then it’s all old signs, nothing current or fresh.

    Therefore monitor is all you need to do at this stage but equally monitoring should be a universal thing because that is the only viable way to stop people bringing infestations into public spaces to begin with.

    How that explains.

    David

    Thanks again, David. You’ve definitely put me at ease and I appreciate your time. I’ll keep monitoring and not worry unless something new pops up.
