I found some bed bugs in my apartment in mid-January. I immediately called management to do an inspection and get the apartment treated. I believe they might have come from a neighboring apartment so if you live in the building, be sure to check your mattress. If you don't have a full blown infestation, just checking the seams may not be enough. It wasn't until I lifted up my mattress and inspected the seams very carefully that I was able to find them. I also didn't have any bites so I wouldn't
rely on that as a sign. Another trick is before and after putting your laundry in the drier, check the lint trap for dead bugs. If you see them in there before you use the drier, it's a sign that someone else in the building has them (won't be from me though - I always clean the lint trap after using the drier).
