    ok so basically I came back from infested house and got bitten there by bedbugs obviously because I had straight lines of bites

    i think my bag was infested and unfortunately, i didn't know and left it on my room for 2 days

    this happened in july 1,3

    two days after, i realised it, so i put my bag in a plastic bag and threw it away
    then i put DE everywhere i could put in my room, and protected my matress

    today we are 03 september, so basically 2 months after,

    didn't have a single bite, haven't seen a single bedbug,

    how high are my chances of not having a bedbug in my room / house waiting for an opportunity to strike

    NB : no one got bitten in the house, not me( who is the most vulnerable) nor my relatives

    thanks for your time

    I think you're good after all this time and no signs.

    well i heard they could be living an entire year without feeding;

    but i find it weird that after 2 month, i haven't seen one bedbug dead by DE contact after all this time, because my bed is hella protected and an attempt of biting me would've killed them..

    they should've tried to bite me the week following the 13th july, right? as they would be hungry

    They only live without feeding when they are forced because no food source is available. They are not hiding to lull you into a flase sense of security. They are not ninjas.

    It is not weird that you didn't find a dead bug. That just means that there was none. You can relax.

    Hi,

    Its fresh blood and thus unlikely to be bedbug related.
