    Long story short, I found bed bugs a few months ago. Was not a huge infestation.

    They did a heat treatment. Bed bugs bites came back a month later and then a K-9 unit found no live ones, but they did a spray treatment on my bed. Now I suspect, a month following the second visit, they are back again.

    I took some photos of what I believe to be evidence of their resurgence. Can anyone confirm?

    You're not seeing the signs of bed bugs? Those blood spots and the pen-like fecal stain are exactly like what I saw previously when I did have BBs.

    I can’t enlarge the pictures without the sample breaking up. Can you take new pictures? Get even closer (directly over top) and try to focus in and save as high resolution

    Largest picture size and highest resolution.

    New stains from last night after washing all my sheets. Does this look like a squished bug (I didn’t find any dead ones) OR possibly a discharge from a live bug?

    I just did another preventative spray. I understand it is difficult to ID blood stains I’m just having severe anxiety right now. Thank you seriously.
