    I found a spot on my sheet today - I dabbed it with saliva in a cotton bud and it didn’t smear - in fact it mostly removed it. Am I right in thinking that means it’s not fecal matter?

    In my panic before I tested it, I checked the whole mattress (no other signs) but I found this squashed bug on the bottom middle of the mattress. Is it a casing? I think it’s too big and long but wanted to check with the experts.

    Yes, fecal would smear with salvia.

    Doesn’t look bedbug related.
