    I recently found two blood stains on my mattress upon removing the fitted sheet. I have not found any bed bugs nor been bitten. I have read on the forums that the blood from a bed bug should be a dark brownish/black color, however these appear to be red. Please ID the blood color to give me some peace of mind. Also the mattress was purchased new about 2 weeks ago.

    Your images don't work but this may help:

    Feces from a bed bug is dark-- brown or black.

    Blood (red) can have many causes and doesn't confirm bed bugs for that reason, even though it can be related to a bed bug problem.

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