    I found this bug on my pillow, I don’t think it’s a BB, so what could it be? NOTE: we have been treated for BB before


    Any advice on when I can finally rest easy after being treated for bed bugs and not seeing any after almost 2 months? I inspect bed everyday and have interceptors, check house once a week and have not seen any, when can I finally stop this routine and be assured there aren’t any? What is the “for sure” time period?

    Not sure what it is, but it definitely doesnt look like a BB.

    As for inspecting, after two months of no signs, you are probably ok to go to general weekly checks of the bed I would think. Continuing to use passive monitoring certainly can't hurt, though.

    Not an expert. Any advice I give is information gleaned via anxiety-fueled research of credible sources and expert posts here. Please research all advice before treating and consult a professional.

    Not a bed bug, but it looks like a flea.
