    Hello,

    Found this one lonely bug in my bed this morning - no bites on me. Entire family has searched the bed but there are no other obvious signs. I take a lot of public transit. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Nobody has seen any bites and we have thoroughly checked the bed (it is only used a couple of days a week). Is it possible it was just a hitch hiker that I brought home via public transit the same night?
