    Are these bedbug feces? It's on my bag. It has been for a while. It's usually put away in a corner near children. Is this just dirt? I'm paranoid.

    I would not suspect bed bug fecal stains if there are no other stains on bedding, couch or areas that might be harborage. Turn the bag inside out and inspect for eggs, molt etc. If I were a reactor and I have no bites nor does any in my family, I would be assured that there are no bed bugs in the house. Just clean the tote well nevertheless with a fabric cleaner and a toothbrush so you won't have to be anxious every time you see those (presumably non-bb) stains.

    No its not bedbug faecal, too particulate in texture and mostly deposited as a solid to solid transfer with some element of friction.

    If you compare the fine detail with the example images you can see clearly the differences are greater than the similarities.

    Hope that helps.
