    In Room A I found an adult BB.

    In Room B, I found their shells and 2 small (not adult) BB with some black spots.

    If the occupant of Room B leaves for two days, will any BBs in that room come looking for Room A? Do they even work that way? I'm just curious if I should sleep in Room B.

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

    If both rooms have had bed bugs how would you tell the difference?

    Lol. Not exactly. I have Room C and D as well, no BBs in there. I'm trying to figure out if BBs will travel if the occupant leaves the room for two days. I know they will travel if a person starts sleeping elsewhere, for instance.

    It doesn't happen immediately and might not happen in 2 days. Depends how satiated they are already and if they pick up any carbon dioxide that they can key in on. I remember a presentation at a meeting where bugs were let go in a sealed room system (other rooms in the suite) to see distribution and migration, but don't remember exact details. Maybe someone will recall.
