    Hi, I've just moved to a new appartement today and found one these marks on the sheets the previous person left.

    I have inspected the whole room but I didn't find any bed bugs. I found a lot of Carpet Beetle larvae skins, but only 1 alive.

    Could these marks be bed bugs ?

    I'm so scared for the problem to start again

    Update: i found this bug in my bed. I know it's not a bed bug but what could it be ? A tiny spider or something else ?

    Hi,

    Various stain but none bedbug related.

    Sample appears to be pscocid not bedbug.

    Hope that helps.

    Hello, I'm back. Still no bed bug found. I was feeling optimistic and that it's all in my head but I woke up to a blood spot on my sheet and a couple tiny brown dots. And now I'm back paranoid. I also have way more acne/bite than and they last a long time.

    So I investigated my mattress and found a 3 small black dots in the crease of the stitches. They were not together, all far for each other. Other thing my mattress has this massive thing, I never thought it could be bed bugs as it's not black in real life (it's light brown) but I wonder what it might be.

    I think I'll buy bed bug blue again as it's the only thing that's proof, it's a shame it's so expensive £35

    Doesn’t looks bed bug related to me. The big stain looks suspiciously like mold and navy the other dots are mold, too. Maybe you react to this. It‘s definitely not healthy.

    Thank you, I didn't think about that. I did see mold in other places and there was carpet beetle meaning humidity. The previous tenant wasn't cleaned I was told (after moving in --'). But tbh mold seems like amazing news when you're terrified of bugs like I am. I'll find a spray anti mold for the mattress, the windows are open 12 hours a day.
