    So me and mi girl starting noticing these mysterious bites around September 7 of 2017. I have searched for fecal matter cast skins and found nothing. This one time I found I believe it was a baby Bb but not 100% sure. I checked my mattress bed frame for fecal spots and nothing all my cabinets are white. So if I had bb would their be obvious signs of an infestation at 4 months? And I also have climb up interceptors on our bed frame but haven’t caught anything. I’m planing on treating my room next week end. Dry everything bag everything up. Vacuum baseboards etc and spray with crossfire and lay down cimexa dust

    The infestation would be big enough to see after 4 months.
    Do you have a picture of the one you found?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    I do but it’s too small to see, my phone couldn’t focus in right. So there’s no point of posting it

    I am not expert.
    After 4 months, my contour sheet had around 20 or so new and old fecal spots (didn't know what they were). Had I known where to look and what to look for, the evidence was screaming at me. I easily caught 3 live bugs to show PCO. The inside corners of the boxspring were full of fecal, adults, nymphs and castings. You would know by now, no questions asked.
    Good luck.

    Was the mess in the corners of your boxspring visible when the dust cover over it was still on? How do you know it was 4 months? Where were the 3 live bugs you caught. Thanks for all your helpful posts.

    Everything was hidden by the bedskirt and dustcover.
    The 3 bugs were crawling on my pillow.
    Faye. You would have moving, live polka dots wallpaper by now....

    Thanks for your good wishes and your help. I am starting to relax a little but don't trust my inspection skills.
