    Hi everyone.

    I have just returned from a hostel (around a week ago) where they may have been bed bugs and since then I have found these stains on my sheets (which may have been there before, I’m not sure) and this bug. No noticeable bites or other bugs/ stains. Does it look like these are bed bugs?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Those images look absolutely nothing like the example images because they are not bedbug related.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks!

    Can I ask what about the stains/ the bug shows that it is not bed bug related? (For future!)

    Hi,

    The best would be to look on images on the web to see for yourself. Than you can better judge in the future. Now that you know it is not bed bug related it should be much easier. The Bug for example has wings and is a beetle.

    Ok great thank you. I think I was most worried about the stains because I couldn’t think of any other explanation for them.

    Hi again - we have found new stains which I think look like the example images. Can anyone give an opinion on these? (One old stain, one new).

    Thanks again.
