    Started noticing tiny reddish brown spots on our bed recently. They are on both sides of the bed. Neither my wife or I have noticed any bite marks at all. We have cats that chill/sleep on the bed quite a lot if that is helpful info. No idea if these are bed bugs. I can't find any spots that look similar online but bed bugs are the only thing I can think of. Thank you for any help!! Pics at the link below:

    If you look at the “blood spots on sheets primer” you will see that anything with a red pigment is not confirming of bedbugs. There are too many other causes for them.

    The only way to confirm bedbugs is through live samples, cast skins or faecal traces. The FAQ section will explain what to look for and has video examples of how to look.

    Until you have 100% proof it’s best to keep your mind open as to what is causing the signs that you see.

    Hope that helps.
