    Yesterday was the 60th day without any signs of bb - what I understand to be that day you can say you are bb free.
    Well, the PCO will be back for an inspection tonight since I woke up with 4 bites in a row this morning, saw a possible feeding stain on the mattress encasement yesterday, but cannot find a live specimen.
    Oddly enough, the bed is isolated, the mattress has double bb certified encasements and I have clean interceptors. PCO thinks it might come from the bridge headboard, though nothing bed related is touching it (headboard not touching the wall, bed not touching headboard, no blankets touching the floor, etc...)
    My PCO offers a 1 year warranty, so the inspection won't be extra, except for the passive monitors he will bring tonight.
    From there I can either 1- resume the fight (although it never stopped) or 2- finally get a good night sleep knowing that the expert confirms my being bb free.

    Does it ever end? I sure hope so...

    I hear your pain. I spent so much money, treated all our stuff, had it all fumigated and still may have moved them with us as I'm getting these "bites" almost every night since getting the truck back.

    I am not an expert, any advice I give should be considered as amateur advice and not taken as fact. I mean well with all my posts and try to give back. If you plan on using any of my advice, I suggest doing research into said advice to make sure it is in your best interest.

    Hi,

    Can you post an image of the suspected stain for confirmation.

    Encasements and isolation do not stop people introducing bed bugs to their homes.

    Hope that helps,

    Hello Mr Cain.
    I will try. It is located in between the 2 encasements, on the underside of the mattress. My PCO will help me out in about an hour.
    But I sort of don't want to have to remove the top encasement.
    More later.
    Thank you for your interest.

    Did your PCO come back to inspect? Did they find anything?

    I had a similar issue too- woke up with bites after nothing for over a month. He is coming back tomorrow morning to inspect but I haven't been able to find anything on my inspections

    Sorry guys.
    PCO never showed up and never called last night (3 nights in a row).
    I will let the LL handle this.

    Hello Mr Cain.
    I will not post a picture because the "blood" stain is still as red as fresh blood after a few days therefore it cannot be blood.
    Thank you for offering your help.
