    We've had a musty, sweet maybe coriander smell coming from our radiator (which obviously since it's summer isn't being used) for about a month now, but i have yet to see any bed bugs. I have however, seen many carpet beetle larvae in the area near the radiator.

    Questions:
    Do carpet beetles give off any scent in mass?
    Or has anyone else had this with a different result that didn't end with bed bugs?
    our bed is over 7 feet from the radiator. could bed bugs make it from the radiator and back without leaving fecal traces or cast skins?
