    Still getting bites three days after my second treatment... I can’t stop worrying. I just found a dead bug on my kitchen floor and I’m terrified it has spread from my room. Are the bites new?

    Has your treatment been limited to only the bedroom? Has the living room and other furniture been inspected as well? What places did you spend time laying or sitting where the spot where you got the bites have been exposed? Bed only, living room chair, couch?

    I try not to sit in any room beside my bedroom where the bedbugs were found. Living room was inspected a few ago with no signs found, however I notice the PCO isn’t very thorough. Bites are usually beneath my clothes

    All you can do is monitor and inspect for now. You can use passive monitors and more interceptors to help you keep track of activity in the bedroom and even a few in the living room to make sure it's quiet there too. Then, you treat based on the results. If after that, you still aren't seeing any bugs, you've got to trust that the treatments are working and that the bites will slow down. If after several weeks and the bites are still continuing, you can explore the possibility that they're caused from something else or from somewhere else. Hopefully you find some more dead bugs soon. The ones that had their last meal on you.
