    I moved into a new apartment about 3 and a half months ago and I have not seen any bed bugs. For the first two months I had passive monitors under my bed and didn't catch anything. There have been no stains on the sheets or mattress. The only weird thing is two of my shirts had weird black spots on it yesterday that I hadn't noticed before. Looked like ink stains to me.

    Do you think I'm in the clear?

    Why not have passive monitors forever?
    I think you're clear now but tomorrow or the next day, or when someone moves in to the building, or gets them somehow.
    Apartments are higher risk, the good thing is the landlord must legally pay for treatment in a lot of places.

    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.
