Bed Bug Feces. After a blood meal, bed bugs often aggregate together in clusters around the room including along the seams of mattresses, along the edges of carpets, furniture, inside walls and other cracks and crevices. While hiding in these clusters, bed bugs accumulate fecal matter, leftover bed bug skins and live or hatched eggs.
Bed bugs themselves are very small insects; the size of a small tick or a roach hatchling. Their feces, on the other hand, will be even smaller. However, identifying bed bug feces may be the only indication you get that you have an infestation. Even though bed bugs bite us and take our blood, some people will never suffer from effects of these bites.
Bed bug droppings. The droppings of bed bugs are normally found on bed linens or other soft surfaces. They will look like tiny reddish-brown or black spots or specks and may appear as rust.

Bed bug droppings are not exclusive to just the bed, however.

If you suspect an infestation, be sure to check all these places thoroughly for stains.
