    Please give your opinion.

    I had a confirmed infestation with three chemical spray treatments at my old apartment. I was most definitely infested from my neighbors and my landlord was unwilling to insist on getting the whole building treated.

    Long story short, I left after the third spray, abandoning all furniture, mattress, sheets, and pillows. All clothes were laundered on high and personal items other than kitchen, bath, and household cleaning items were heated in a portable heater. The other items were visually inspected and rinsed in the sink.

    Opinions on this blood stain. I have been at new place a couple weeks. I am nonreactive to bites.

    Thoughts on likelihood I brought any with me?

    Can't determine anything from a "blood stain".

    Only thing a blood stain suggests is to look deeper for true confirming evidence of bed bugs. Live or dead bugs, feces, cast skins, eggs.

    Thanks. I figured as much.

    Given my history should I be concerned? Sometimes people on this forum go nuclear option when it comes to moving. I think I was pretty aggressive - are they that easy to bring to a new place?

    I would bet your bug problems are behind you.

    Head problems associated with bugs - That takes about 12 years so start your countdown now.

    Thanks. Deep down I know you are right. Nobody lives with bed bugs forever!

    I will chill out and stay vigilant. At least I now know what to look for and, if I do have a problem, I don't suspect its in the other units.
