    Hi.

    I was inspecting my bed frame and found these black marks. I'm wondering if they are fecal stains? Or just an old bed (about 9-10 years).

    Mattress doesn't seem to have any marks and Passive Monitor looks clear.

    Also a question about cleaning beds - when you are looking for evidence on a dusty bedframe is cleaning bad as you might move the colony of bedbugs elsewhere and remove evidence?

    Thanks

    I don't see anything bed bug related in your photo.
    I don't understand the question.

    Is it safe to clean your bedframe or does this go against advice not to move anything from an infested area? I don't want to lose or clean away any evidence or spread them further afield if they are there.
