    Can an expert please ID whether these appear to be fecal spots or just wood spurs. I found them on the underside of one of the wood slates that support my bed. Haven't slept in days. Thanks

    Hi,

    100% not faecal. They are related to dampness in the wood when it was cut and stored before being made into the bed.

    The way it sits within rather than on the fibers of the wood is the clearest indicator.

    Hope that helps.
