    Hi Bedbuggers,

    Thank you for your time.

    Does this stain look like one left from a bed bug? It's about the size of a marker dot, reddish brown in color.

    Thanks

    Here's another stain a foot away from that one.

    I realize it's likely not fecal matter, given the coloration. But could it be blood from when bite. Does anyone know if they secrete blood after a feeding, to this degree?

    I have no cuts or scratches, so that's why I'm concerned.

    Hi,
    Red blood is non confirming of bed bugs, there are too many other causes.

    Please see the blood spots on sheets primer for further information.

    Hope that helps.
