    Hello,

    Still having periodic blood stains which are very concerning. I have also uploaded a photo showing possible fecal stain. Is that what it is? (You can get a decent view zooming in on the first one.)

    I purchased (1) active monitor with 2 pouches (2) passive monitor (3) 4 ClimbUp for bed. They shipped already and I will use/install them as soon as they arrive.

    Not sleeping well. Began thorough exam of apartment for the second time this week - nothing found yet.

    Here are some black dots/spots I found above door frame:

    first pick is after touching with finger, then second is after rubbing again.

    Also, I do have silverfish in the room. Not sure what their feces look like.

    Any ideas on the wall and sheet stain?

    Thanks. Either way I am starting monitoring and considering treatment options.

    Very few experts do stain IDs here. Please be patient!

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Hi,

    100% not bed bug faecal on the dark ones.

    The red ones appear to be blood.

    Nothing to confirm bed bugs, I would suggest monitoring so you have the base elements of TbyPMR in place and that's the best step you can take at this stage.

    Hope that helps.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    Nobugsonme, sorry!

    David, thank you so much! I was so sure that those were fecal.

    I hadn't heard of TbyPMR, but found the pdf file and will use it as a guide.

    Thanks again!
