One year ago the only thing I brought with me was my clothes that had been dryed and sealed in totes and electronics there was new carpet and it was sprayed as well before I moved in aw I bought all new furniture sealed the box springs and mattress afterwords bumps have continued for a year late last spring early summer they sprayed just the basic around windows and walls found nothing then again a full spray of everything in October still they found no signs of bed bugs I have removed dust covers off couch and bed and have searched every piece of my furniture and apt a 100 times nothing only thing have found is small blood spots on my pillow slips and a few blood spots on my sheets a few times which I have posted pics of on here for id and too be fair my hands get dry and bleed really bad I have used traps come up empty so have two?? Could I still be missing them I know exactly what they look like seen them and found them dead and alive back in 2015 vision is good and could they be in those totes of clothes have empty them all found nothing while I was emptying or putting them back or is it just not bb from the way it sounds any help would appreciate ty.

    Hi,

    Please look at the FAQs and useful tools sections which will explain in detail the options for inspection/detection and monitoring. Looking for things yourself is not an accurate method and is not a reliable way to move forward.

    Hope that helps.

    The constant spraying and stress can cause itching and unexplained bumps. If you must, get a K9 detection team to inspect
    Make sure the handler verifies any positive hits by the dog.

    I'm not an expert. Just sharing what I learned from my experience.

And not one bug had 3 different pco came here tell me the same my own Dr. Doesn't seem too think it is but he is just a basic MD idk sorry for the venting ty for the advice as well bed bugs onme!!
