    I have found two dried, dead, flat bedbugs under the original dresser where we found them before, none anywhere else, in the last 3.5 weeks. (had not inspected the rest of the room for 2 weeks due to schedules, shame on me) Possible next treatment is this week.

    Beds have been dismantled once a week, checked, cleaned, sprayed, put back together. Nothing.

    When do I start the countdown...after the last dead bug sighting? I haven't seen cast skins in literally weeks and weeks, and no fecal traces on beds or floor, etc, either. No one is getting bitten, for weeks and weeks. But the occasional dead dried bug shows up under this one dresser/ next to the baseboards in one room, next to the originally infested bed. Nothing in the climbups. I know it's good news that they're dead, but I wish they wouldn't show up at all, alive or dead.

    When do I start a countdown?

    After the last evidence of live activity.

    Bodies can fall out of cracks months or years after the fact.

    Sounds like you did self treatment. Do you mean listing the steps and products used.
