    Hi,

    So inspection is coming monday. Is it important to have a specimen presented for this?
    I have no hardcore evidence! (I’ve posted some possible fecal stains and some possible fresh blood stain/nymph stuff) and I’m afraid of getting ridiculed by this guy if he doesn’t find a single specimen.

    I live in social housing, so the probability of the guy coming being less than professional is not far fetched, and if he only goes by living prof...
    The things I found, which fueled my suspicion, were from one sleepless night, where I took everything, and inspected it myself, but at the time I didn’t know what I was looking for, and latter on, while looking at the pictures, it looks like I’ve might have photographed one nymph, which I thought was just blood dots or something, but the picture is too inconclusive to make out.

    Would you recommend I go back and look again to capture a nymph? maybe ruin the bed a little, or should I wait till Monday and hope that this guy is experienced enough to recognize a small infestation without living prof? Or would the moving things around, tearing things apart make a small infestation flee?
    I’m loosing my mind not knowing for sure, feeling like a total lunatic. I feel like I have so little to go by.
