    Just wondering what fecal stains would look like on the plastic
    In a car (black in colour) as well as the seats (black also), would they be shiny? And would they be wet/smear on the plastic? Any pics out there that can help?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    For various reasons ( all of which I can't disclose ) faecal on plastic and in particular an open plastic surface is an extremely low probability event. I do have some pictures of faecal on plastic but it is almost universally associated with other signs such as cast skins, live samples and eggs.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi TAOT,

    Some things I can't openly discuss as they are subject to IP filings and posting details would jepodise those claims, sorry not even moon pies will loosen my lips at times and those are usually times I have already invested too much in an area.

    It was interesting about plastic. I had a light gray plastic garbage bin (small, maybe 2 ft high) that I kept on finding little black smears in. It freaked me out since it was in my entryway. I actually packtited it (head down in shame). I haven't ever seen a roach in the past 5 years, but it looked too small to be roach or mice.

    The only shame is that you did not post a picture or confirm it with Bed Bug Blue.

    I have run out of bed bug blue (must re-order) and the last time I posted a picture of what I thought was fecal, I was told to clean my curtains more often.

    I think it was before bed bug blue cause I ran around my office and home doing samples. My bed is black metal so I really rely on the passive there. I've seen a lot of what I thought was fecal around my windows and finally figured out it may be box elder bugs. That was last summer.

    Around the windows it's more likely to be fly poo which looks just like BB faecal but unless your home was recently also a nasty homocide scene will test negative with Bed Bug Blue.
