Welcome to the forums.

The site is a little jumpy. Not necessarily you.

Those are mice droppings in your picture.
They poop everywhere they travel.
Some got into the box from holes in the top of the box.

Mouse droppings, as PJ noted. Bed bug fecal material would be the dried blood of the host. Wouldn't be a pellet or formed dropping as we see here, but more like flattened flakes stuck to materials.
