    Hello, I got treated for a beginning infestation on Dec 21st. I recently found dry feces on my wall (I' m not sure how old they were) but they were dried. How can you tell how old the feces are? Is this normal for feces to show up this long after a treatment?

    I just put my mattress in a zipper case today and have had interceptors on the legs of my bed which I've found nothing in them for weeks. My bed is away from any wall too.

    Any information would help as this is taking a toll on my mental health

    Hi,

    I would recommend an image to confirm it’s farcal before assuming it is.

    Most of what people post assuming it’s faecal is not.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi,

    Do you have one in better focus and ideally a little closer.

    No that's the only photo I got before I scrubbed them off. You can zoom in

    Hi,

    Zooming in does not resolve the focus or resolution.

    I even tried holding my phone behind a pint of beer - no luck but it’s now snowing here.

    not sure if you're mocking my situation but that's not very nice.

    They're not mocking you... they're teasing each other.
