    I know the spot on the left is to big and red to be a fecal spot but was not sure about the little one that is smeared is a bb fecal spot or not. I want to add that these spots were in different locations. The big one was on a pillow case and the little one that is smeared was on the sheet that would be located where ones middle of their back would be to give you an idea. I was putting the big one next to the smeared little one to see difference in color and consistency.

    I put peroxide on the big red spot and it fizzed a lot. I put peroxide on the spot on the spot that is to the right of the big spot and it did not fizz very much. The spot to the right also that is smeared the dot looks almost black to me and the smear part more of a brown color. For some reason both spots look similar in color in the photo but in person the big spot was red compare to the other. Many thanks for all your help.

    That doesn't make me suspect bed bugs.

    My son's and daughter have a wooden bed frame that have many cracks and I am unable to take them apart. My question is could bed bugs live in a spot smaller that the tip of a credit card? Most the cracks in their wooden bred frame I am not able to get a credit card in it and everything I read says if you can insert a credit card in the crack a bed bug can fit so I am assuming if you can't insert a credit card then they can't fit. Is this right? Also if they can fit into the crack would you be able to see fecal matter around the crack which they go into?
