    hello,
    it's been about 6 weeks of bites for me without a shred of evidence; two visits from PCO's, a DIY dry ice trap, glue traps, double-sided tape all over my bed, flashlight inspection, and so on. Something's gotta give, of course. New bites are getting much smaller and rarely itch, though Ive learned from this forum that that's largely irrelevant. I'm sure this is a fairly standard story, in that I constantly vacillate (minute to minute) between feeling like I dont have them and being sure I do.
    I've read glowing reviews of KillerQueen's work and would love to get him or someone like him involved, busy though he surely must be. I live in NYC - if anyone has some recommendations, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    HI Cimex -

    this link will help you

    http://bedbugger.com/forum/tags/pcos

    I used A&C Exterminating successfully - Brian Taggart is the contact there

    But NYC has many reputable PCO firms

    thanks adele! Did you have their dog inspect as well?
    Im generally curious about how long a person really can go without seeing identifying signs. Based on this forum, it sort of seems the answer is forever. I find that hard to believe...

    No, it should not be possible to go on for very long without seeing any signs. Bed bugs feed and then they poop and so at the very least, there should be some fecal staining somewhere.

    A good careful human inspection, or a dog inspection from someone who visually confirms any dog alerts, can be very helpful.

    There are lots of good PCOs in NYC.

    FYI the best tag to search in the forums for NYC PCOs is probably "NYC PCOs" (the link Adele gave you to PCOs is broader).

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
