    Is there such a thing? I have several pieces of furniture that seem to have fecal/blood stains, whatever. If I spend time vacuuming near them, especially, do I have a greater chance of picking up some actual live bed bugs in one stage or other? Or is the vacuuming just a random thing - I might or might not run across one anywhere. (This is what I suspect, though I'm hoping I'm wrong.) Evening vacuums, as I posted in another thread, would seem to be more strategic than daytime? Or do these bugs sort of wander at will throughout the day, just feeding, generally, at night/ in the wee hours? Help/thoughts welcome.

    Last night I could not sleep, so at 2 AM I got up and decided to vaccuum.... and I found dozens of them whereas before I never went by more than 3-5 at a time during the day. I think the best plan is to lie down and after one or two hours get up and vacuum....

    I have a very small vacuum without even bags and all.... I can't wait for the product to take hold...
