    Has anyone else found some live ones and other evidence there like I did, and if so, can anyone explain how they could congregate there?

    We didn't have BB's in but rather UNDER the tub in the crawl space. I've never seen evidence of them in the bathroom. The door to the crawl space is in my bedroom that was heavily infested....the PCO used a special machine to steam then spray under the tub....

    I have found live bed bugs in the bathtub. I mentioned it at the next PCO appontment, and they sprayed the bathroom also.

    Not sure why they were in there or how they got into the tub with all that slippery enamel....

    They are possibly hunting food and once in, can't get out. Got cracks in the bathroom, gaps around the pipes, the outlets sealed etc.

    Figured if they can be in the walls and come in via outlets no reason they couldn't come in via pipes under the sink or in the tub.

    May be totally wrong but I'm a caulking fool. Cue the Zappa.
