    I have a metal bunk bed both have mattress covers. I been waking up with bites the last few weeks. Friday I woke up with 4 bites, 3 of them in a triangle like pattern. My girlfriend stayed a few nights with me and she woke with a rash on her right ankle, right upper thigh and under her right breast.

    Today I decided to lift my mattress sideways to look at it and discovered it was a hole in my mattress cover. A few holes under my mattress covers. I also noticed what appeared to be bedbug feces under the mattress. I decided to put tape on the holes. Not sure if that will stop the problem if it is bedbugs. If the tape doesn’t stop them then what should I do? Here is a pic

    Definitely not bed bug feces, the consistency is very different.

    What you mean? Isn’t bed bug feces a bunch of black spots like I posted in the picture? Can you elaborate more? The picture I took is the underside of my mattress

    No bleeding in fabric, not the right color, not the right consistency, wrong place because no concentration to a harbourage/hiding place.

    Please compare with pictures of feces on fabrics/sheets. Not every bunch of black spots are bed bug feces even on the underside of a matress.
