Bug bites at night
A month ago I went through nights of bug bites (about 10 bites in total by the third night). I’d wake up around 3am with an itchy bump/s, so on the third night I stripped my entire bed and washed all my sheets in hot water. I inspected the area and mattress each night and couldn’t find any signs of bed bugs. I had an inspection from a bed bug exterminator about 2 days later (in that time I had no new bites). He couldn’t find anything but gave me sticky traps. He said to leave them around me and the edges of my bed for 10 days, if I had nothing in the traps and no new bites then it wasn’t bed bugs. After 11 days of sleeping with the traps I got rid of them thinking I was pest free and maybe it was a spider. Fast forward to 3 weeks later and I woke up about 2 am with a single bug bite on my leg. I have no idea what to do, it’s winter so I know it can’t be a mosquito just living in my room. I have my pets sleep with me but they aren’t itchy and my roommate isn’t getting any bites.
