    Hi,

    Sample artrived:

    IMG_0973 by David Cain, on Flickr

    I call it as bedbugs and not bat bugs. So yes odd location and without adjoining neighbours I can only conclude something about treatment has driven them there or something about the living conditions is depositing them there.

    I would need to know step by step and more details to narrow things down.

    Hope that helps.

    Nice shot of a bed bug, David. Perfect for ID purposes. Too bad wasn't a bat bug. I've had a few sent so far but from U.S.

    Many thanks David.

    Some info:-

    - Thats 3 found in ensuite bathroom in last few weeks.
    - Nothing in passive monitors in bathroom.
    - Nothing at all in bedrooms or in passive monitors there.
    - Nothing found for the last week at least.
    - PCO did treat the bedrooms (twice) but did not do the ensuite.
    - I've put diamatacous earth in bedrooms and bathroom.

    Worth getting treatment again (inc bathroom)? Or just monitor for now and maybe write off as last one or two that have moved into bathroom and are gone now?

    Hi,

    I would need to know exactly what they treated with and how to work this one out which means going through the previously treated process on the website so the information is in standard format.
