    So as a recap, I have confirmed BBs after finding a nymph, identified by bedbugger and 2 PCOs.

    PCO came in for inspection and said they saw one maybe sign on a pillow in roommate's bedroom and nothing else. Set up a treatment because...the nymph.

    Had first treatment yesterday, Zenprox and Bedlam. They are doing 2 treatments 2 weeks apart, down from their original plan because the landlords. I don't know how much they treated because they didn't leave an order. They told us they saw no signs (roommate encase her pillow) They did leave interceptor traps.

    Today, as I was vacuuming my mattress post-treatment, I found this. I had seen it earlier but forgotten to mention to the PCO (I was anxious). Is it a fecal stain? If so....I'm left still doubting this pest company. It wasn't hard to find. I saw some other stuff I wondered about.

    Tonight or tomorrow we are encasing my boxspring and mattress. (Oh...side note...I have a wood and cardboard 'box spring' no springs. It has plastic around the corners that is essentially torn off now, but it also has some staples. How do you successfully encase that?)

    I tore off the plastic. Bed bugs love hiding in that. Used needle-point pliers. As for the staples, I used regular pliers to rip them out and took a hammer to every single staple and nail left. I also ripped off the bottom webbing of my boxspring. I never encased my boxspring, but it was well treated inside and out.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.
