    Those look blue to me.

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    I can't vouge for what exactly that is...but was the couch delivered by chance? I would think if it were some sort of fecal matter, it's quite a bit so that I imagine you would've seen some live activity. That's just my thought.

    There is a test.
    I think it's called bed bug blue.

    Thanks for your help.
    Yes, the couch was delivered.
    You have a point. Feels like I should see some bugs?

    I would definitely think you would've seen bugs, even one...it could be anything honestly. It almost looks like mold or something kind of. I would definately call the place you bought the couch from first and try to get your money back and return it. Just to throw it out there a lot places that deliver furniture, also pick up the customers old furniture in the same truck...that's why I asked...not to scare you at all, but it's better safe than sorry to ask what their protocol is for picking up old discarded furniture.

    What I can see in the couch can be a number of things.... But, for that amount of fecals there has to be activity (I mean, quite a lot of activity), for that activity to happen there has to be at least a few bed bugs that you should be capable to find, and you state that you havent seen any.... Now, for the bed bugs to infest a sofa like that, there must be somebody using the sofa quite a lot, and you state that it is new, for all that, I am quite confident that this is not bed bugs related (setting aside that those in the photo don't look like bed bugs fecal to me)

    Thank you F. Pazos!

    I've slept in the couch while waiting for a bed, but I've not seen any bugs at all.
    But do I understand you correctly, you don't think it looks like fecal matter either?

    Thanks a lot!

    Doesn't look like bed bugs either. You would not just see bugs but at least eggs and skins. Furthermore the spots would be more concentrated at the slat in my opinion. My guess is paint or molt.
