    Quick background: we had a light infestation 2 years ago. Seems they're just going from apartment to apartment. Two treatments did the trick.

    I found a bed bug near the front door (inside) about 6 weeks ago. Reported to LL, inspection, nothing.
    Found another one a week later in a climbup. Reported to LL, treatment (half-assed IMO).
    New PCO. Detailed inspection two weeks ago, nothing.

    This morning I had a bite on the back on my neck. Can't tell for sure what bit me but, well, it's not impossible that it was a bed bug. Two years ago the bites were so itchy I almost lost my mind. This one itched for all of 5 minutes this morning. That was it.

    I took the climbups out from under the bed legs and put one a Packtite passive monitor under my mattress. Ugh. The thought that I'll probably be BB smorgasbord tonight is really depressing.

    But it's better to know.... right???

    You'll be fine. It's not like an invading army camped outside of a castle.

    Low level problems can often be solved without isolation techniques.

    Its highly unlikely bed bugs refrained from biting you because of interceptor traps. If present, they could have bitten you elsewhere in the home (such as in a chair) if prevented from getting to you in bed. So I don't think you'll notice much difference.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Peeked at the passive and there were no signs of bb. I'll put one on the sofa as well in order to keep an eye on things.
