    Hi - I’m staying in a VRBO with family and I’ve become suspicious that there are bed bugs here. I inspected my mattress upon arriving and it was fun, but I saw a live bug on my pillow before bed on night 1 - that one was lost in the carpet and I was not able to photograph. However, my sister just showed me the pictured stains on her bed and I found this bug on her mattress. Bed bugs? Help!
