    On my first treatment the PCO only found 3 adult bugs isolated to one mattress. I haven't seen one since before the first treatment and even then I only saw one because I went looking for them. It took me over three hours of searching one mattress to find that bug. I haven't seen one since then and I have looked. Today was the second treatment and the PCO says we are bedbug free. He found no bugs. Dead or alive. No eggs. No staining. Nothing.

    So is it over? Or are they just hiding in my walls waiting for the pesticide to wear off? Lol.

    Sounds like good news, you caught it early. Small infestations can take just one thorough treatment to rid you of bed bugs.

    Is that truth? Because I read so many stories on here about people who have bugs for months and months and I really just think this should have been...harder?

    I mean it was fun at all, but two treatments work? And it would appear even just the one treatment worked by itself and the second wasn't even needed? That happens? I'm not really buying that it's over. Haha. Anxiety is a bitch. Lol.

    Sounds like you caught it early. Most of the horror stories on here are from people trying to self treat. I do understand the paranoid part I had my heat and spray last month and have got two bites after it was done. But that could be anything the weather is nice, but any bite I think BBs.

    I would recommend bed bug monitors just to be on the safe side. Other than that sounds like you are bed bug free.

    You know my thoughts! I thought it *might* finally be over, and saw nothing for a month, then boom- super flat adult male on the chair. Nothing since (couple days) so maybe a straggler... thankfully, a MALE straggler, so it's not planting its devil spawn around and making things worse.

    I'd def just keep an eye out and monitor from time to time! But, seems like you conquered the beast!

    You can have a small bed bug problem. It happens all the time. Monitoring is a good idea for anyone.
