    Hi,

    Please retake the image from above the stain so it’s in focus.

    Faecal ID requires clean, chrisp and in focus images to be accurate.

    The other option is to use Bed Bug Blue rest kit.

    Hope that helps.

    Is this better? I don’t have bed bug blue. Really hoping this isn’t something to be concerned about

    If I found a stain like this wouldn’t there be more signs by now or am I incorrect? My anxiety is making me find reasons and I saw this one spot and now I’m worried again although like I’ve stated before I don’t have any real reason to believe we have them other than a traveling husband for work and it’s a huge fear if mine

    Hi,

    Much clearer.

    If you plot the density of the stain as a 3D graph you can see two distinct peaks which would not be possible with bedbug faecal. In fact if you look at the example images you see a much smoother rounder profile.

    Hope that helps.

    Sorry one more this is the under side of my box spring. The mesh netting has been taken off after our dog chewed some of it.

    I don't see anything that would make me suspect bed bugs.
