    Hello,

    It's been 2.5 weeks since I had no bites/sightings of bedbugs.
    Today, I caught this crawling near where I sit at the end of my bed.
    Not sure if it's male or female or how old it is?

    Couldn't find any nests or other bedbugs around or in my bed though.

    Is it possible that a few will linger around by themselves as i know they're social and tend to hang around in groups. Not sure where this one came from but it's not in the usual areas where I've found them in the past as they're all clear. Possible that a few went astray and hid elsewhere?

    Is it possible that they can die out of stress?

    I don't believe it is an adult.
