    Just moved into a new apartment 2 weeks ago. Last week I saw one these bugs walking up my wall. Today while sitting in my car I saw one walking on my pants and just now saw one walking on my bed.

    Hi,

    Its an unfed mature bed bug that has not fed in at least 4 days.

    It may be a sign that you had just come into contact with a source of bed bugs or that your new home has an issue.

    The best thing you can do is check your home and your vehcile for confirming signs:

    • Live samples
    • Cast skins
    • Faecal traces

    The deep cleanse your vehicle, do this yourself not via a service as you need to get into the places they will most likely skip.

    Hope that helps.
