    Do people still hold to the 55 rule in determining if they have bed bugs? Is this just for determining if a person has bed bugs after treatment or is it also to see if a person introduced them? What are the monitoring requirements for using the rule?
    Thanks.

    Fourteen days; and you don't have bed bugs. Take a deep breath.

    You don't have bed bugs, no need to count days.

    Thanks for your response. Hope you're right since 55 days since possible exposure. Then when is the 55 or 60 day rule used? Thanks.
