    Long story short: my boyfriend had bedbugs in two separate apartments. Or, at least, I *think* he did. I was the only one getting bitten, and we never managed to find any bugs, shed skins, fecal stains, or blood spots. I felt like I was crazy because he never had even one visible bite! Covering the mattress and box spring helped for a while but then the problem came back. When we moved in together about a month ago, we threw away the entire old bed set, carefully inspected the other furniture, and washed all our clothes and linens. Not as thorough as we could have been, but the bed was the only place I ever got bitten, so I naively believed that getting rid of the bed frame/mattress/sheets would do the trick. Things were fine for a few weeks but now I'm getting bitten again.

    How should I proceed from here? We are ready to call a PCO to get to the bottom of this. Our landlord is a decent guy and I think he would try to help us out with it, but if we tell him WE most likely brought them in he may not be willing to do that. We've only been here for a month. I don't want to lie about it, and I do feel like it's sort of our responsibility. Would it be disingenuous to just say, "I think there's a bedbug problem, and we'd like you to send someone over?"

    Thanks for your help and advice.
