    Ok. I've moved into my new place yesterday. I *thought* I saw a nymph on one unprotected mattress but it fell off (outside) when I tried to grab it so I'm not sure. I inspected the seams of mattresses and box springs and nothing was there. No fecal staining, skins, etc.
    I've been getting bit for over a year, so surely if there were bugs I'd have a large infestation by now, right?
    No one else saw any bed bugs, either.
    There were clothing moths and varied carpet beetles though and apparently my foam mattress and its box spring (on floor, not frame) had a bunch of moths living in/under it.
    I also discovered my bedroom was insulated with t-shirts, towels and duct tape.

    At this point, I'm thinking the "bites" which were huge and incredibly itchy were an allergic reaction to other larvae.

    Any thoughts? I can't sleep. I'm so worried about infesting my new place.
