My parents recently had a bed bug problem after bringing in an infected suitcase. They hired an exterminator, and are now close to beating the problem. I live in my own apartment, but continued to do my laundry at my parentsí home and visited them every weekend. They also came over to my apartment once, but we have always been very careful and checked ourselves over carefully to make sure there were no bugs on ay of us. We also used a sticky roller over our clothes. I didnít think I had too much to worry about, but recently, I have noticed some small bugs in my home that I canít quite identify. I have only seen 3 in the past two weeks and do not have any bites on me. I have looked under my mattress and sheets, under couch cushions and under rugs, but have not found anything. These bugs are fairly small, and similar in shape and size to what my parents had seen, but I canít say for sure they are bed bugs. They appear orange in color and kind of transparent. My apt complex has a weekly exterminator service out every Wednesday Ė Maybe this is driving them in from the outside (?)
Can you please give me some advice on this, and whether or not this sounds like a bed bug problem or just a local summer bug? Is it possible to see just a few bugs without bites or an actual infestation?
Thanks so much!
