We had a confirmed infestation (the PCO said it was light) after I found evidence of bedbugs in mid-late September. The PCO did two treatments of our unit. The landlord lives upstairs, and his unit was not treated. There are only two units in the building.
The second treatment was Friday, October 14. I've been looking for signs of any stragglers, including putting climbups under the feet of my isolated bed on November 3. So far, nothing has turned up in those.
I have two roommates -- one of whom is a known reactor, as an ex-boyfriend of hers had bedbugs when she was in college and she had huge red welts from them. The other roommate complained of a rash on her elbow yesterday, but I haven't seen it. She also never believed that we had bedbugs, despite finding a (dead) bedbug in the laundry and another elsewhere in the house.
I was the one who was getting bitten and was also the one who took the samples I'd found in mid-September to a PCO, where they were confirmed. Naturally, I'm also the one who is the most paranoid!
Tonight I came home from work and was looking around the bed with the lights on and a flashlight and found the following on the floor near the head of my bed (it wasn't cold or dried out when I found it; I'd describe the texture as a bit wet. But I did not see any red blood come from it):
Could someone please ID? Please note that it is attached to a bit of lint, what ever it is.
Oh, I forgot to mention -- the known reactor roommate has not complained of any bites.

A bit late, but grazie mille!
