    Good morning,

    I found these small particles on my sock. They look and feel like little grains of salt, but I don't take any chances anymore. Should I be worried?

    As always, many thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    100% not bed bugs. Most likely quartz grains from the street.

    If you compare with the image below:

    You can see there is a very uniform and consistent shape and appearance to bed bug eggs. They are like small tubes with a round opening at one end. When occupied they are an amber colour and only become pearlescent white once the nymph has hatched out.

    Hope that helps.
