    Hi All.

    I am almost positive I have bed bugs (from the stains on my mattress, I believe I saw a dried up bed bug, and I have a few bites).

    The superintendent of my building has "inspected" my bed and said that they are not from bed bugs. From my research I believe they are, they are dark in colour and when I wipe a Q-tip with saliva over them black colouring easily comes off onto the q-tip.

    ****Below are pictures of the stains on my box spring (wood) and mattress ***



    Thank you so much for your help!

    The best way is through educating yourself on the signs via the FAQ's here, the galleries here as well as other good sites such as bedbugbeware.com and through the use of the faecal trace confirmation kit called Bedbug Blue.

    I have also embedded some images below to help:
