    Hello, I've been dealing with a biting nightmare in my home for the past year. Without getting into the entire drawn-out story, I'm now trying to find a way to catch a BB.

    Has anyone used the Nightwatch BB trap? I'm willing to spend the money if it is worth it. I am also open to other suggestions. I have climb up inceptors and have never caught a BB in one. I have had visual and k9 inspections and nothing ever found. But, we are getting bit in our home.

    I have just had my house treated for the (lost count) time and I am under a contract of 30 days. Because no bugs have been found (only bites and blood stains), they are fighting me on coming back, even though we are still getting bit regulrly. I'm at a complete loss and feel like I will be living in this hell state of limbo for good.

    I have heard there are success stories getting rid of BB, and every PCO I have hired has sworn they have never had a case like mine. But, I have an album full of photos of blood stains, possible waste marks and tons and tons of bites my children and I are getting in my house, while we sleep-winter, spring , summer and fall. It has been ongoing since last August.

    I'm looking for serious help and have tried to find an entomologist to come study my case, to no avail. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

    I'm happy to PM my photo album or post some pics, but ultimately, I'm looking for a specimen to prove to everyone what is being us.

    Thank you, kindly.

    Do you have bats in/around your home?

    I am, by no means, a pro. I'm simply a person that has had unfortunate luck, and somehow acquired the little guys.
    Any/all 'advice' I have to share is based on my own personal history and/or things I've read from the professionals on this site.
    My profession is medical, which is where I am confident in any advice I give, however rare it may be.

    No signs to confirm bed bugs but continued symptoms usually means it's not bed bugs and one f the many other things that can cause skin reactions and blood spots on the sheets. While this can include bat and bird bugs it more often than not is due to other causes, be they insect or environmental or even medical.

    Its best to keep an open mind rather than seeking the evidence to fit your theory. If you look at the advanced educational section of my home site you can find documents on many of the other possibilities.

    Hope that helps.
