    My apartment smells like coriander. Specifically near the radiator. But i haven't found any other signs of bed bugs to date...i've had some skin colored bumps on my skin, but i'm not conclusive that they are bed bug bites. I haven't found really strong evidence to pin either way, besides just the smell. Are there any other bugs that smell like coriander? Has anyone else had the smell?

    Almost all the true bugs have glands that produce various chemicals. Brown marmorated stink bugs, squash bugs, boxelder bugs. These all produce various chemicals with similar odors including citronella.
