The infestation lasted between August - September 2008
I received a few very itchy bites over a course of a few weeks. I thought I was being hysterical and didn't go into full combat mode until I woke up with 20+ bites. I realized my partner also had bites, but he wasn't allergic to them so they were not as noticeable until closer inspection. We were sprayed twice and did all of the necessary things (washed/dried and dry-cleaned clothes, etc). We did not have any additional bugs.
spraying phase of the bed bug war, we spoke to the neighbors. It turns out a neighbor in the building had been fighting bedbugs for the month BEFORE we got them.
