    I'm wondering if I can have the help of any expert in regard to this stain I've recently found on my bedding (sheets).

    Long story short, I had a light infestation more than a year ago. The treatment was successful. Since I live in a city with bed bugs issues, I regularly check the bedroom. This is the first time I've found something that concerns. I've checked the room and I didn't found any other possible sign.

    I'm aware that to identify those stain from pictures is hard, but it would be helpful if any of you can advise if this stain should be potential matter of concern.

    Many thanks in advance..

    No there is too much red pigment in this for it to be faecal.

    If you look at the examples images you can see faecal can appear black through to a yellow / brown.

    Hope that makes sense.
