    My bed bug problem was found in November of last year. I live in a multi-unit apartment building Milwaukee. (Which by the way, the whole dang city is infested) It was not a large infestation, only found a few live bugs at the time in my boxspring and mattress. I had three treatments spaced apart by two weeks and completed in January 2018. In early March I had the K9 inspect because I was still getting bit. The K9 didn't alert to anything! I even had them inspect my car and the dog did not alert to anything there either. So over the past couple months I have been self treating with Cimexa and recently (March 24th) sprayed Phantom in the bedroom, ceiling, bed frame, everything. I am still getting bites and cannot find these stupid things. I have climb ups, active volcano monitor traps, have fully encased my mattress and even my couch (threw out the box spring), bought a new bed frame that is soaked with pesticides and have found literally NO SIGNS of them. Why am I still getting bit? And what do I do now?

    If you can't find anything at all and the K9 didn't alert, I would try going to a doctor or dermatologist to see if your bites might possibly be something else. Bed bugs can be a very mentally taxing experience and there might be something else going on that's not bed bugs.

    Old bites can reactivate
    Maybe you're allergic to the pesticides.

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Thanks for the reply, everyone. I guess it's a "wait and see" kind of game now. These things really do mess with your head, your social life, your love life, everything. I will forever have different views on people who get bed bugs. Amongst all the negativity, they have given me compassion towards others that are in my shoes.
