    So just wanted to get some perspective from all you fellow bedbuggers. My PCO only saw the bedbug that I had caught that was scurrying across my pillow. He found no other signs and he thinks I brought in a straggler .I'm very proactive about the issue and do bi weekly checks and up until Wednesday found nothing. He said by the size it was probably 4th or 5th instar. Do they reproduce at that stage. How many of you guys just found one? What's my chances it's just the straggler. I do live in an apartment but all walls are sealed and the only way they could get through is the vents. Which I hope is highly unlikely. How do you all suspect you got bed bugs. Would like to hear your stories.

    I know for a fact i got bedbugs from a second hand futon i acquired (Before i knew anything about bedbugs and how easy it is to get them), which more likely than not already contained a healthy and reproducing population of bugs and their eggs before i even brought it inside.

    .....I am NOT an expert.....

    Any advice i give here is based solely on my own personal experiences in dealing with bedbugs & other household vermin.
