    Hello!

    I was able to snag some pics from my daughter's mattress cover. If you could please (if it's possible) let me know if this is possible fecal matter. I haven't yet removed the mattress cover.

    I also took pics of a shed skin, as well as a big I caught on the cover when I lifted up the mattress. I'm sure it isn't BB related, but I wanted to ask for an id if possible. Thanks!

    My daughter woke up with bites and it made me go look. I've installed a passive monitor and plan to order the bed bug blue product.

    Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

    The bug doesn't look like a bed bug but that does look like bed bug fecal stains which brings up a good question. If bed bugs were inside the encasement, would you still be able to see the fecal spots from the outside and if so, should you do anything about it or just leave the encasement sealed up and let them suckers die buried alive?

    Tell me a success story, please!

    I should add that this was found on the underside of the encasement, but there was nothing seen on the sheets themselves. I did also notice a rip in the encasement (it's a bit old), but I haven't checked her actual mattress yet. I will do that this evening.

    I finally got the BB Blue and tested twice on what I thought was fecal and it wasn't positive. Not sure what to think about the bites on her legs at this point. Checked the passive monitor on her wooden slats and no signs. Just an update
