Found bodies months after treatment - how long for body to decompose

Treated 2 months ago - haven’t seen any signs since then but the person living there wasn’t getting reaction to them anyway (only knew of the problem because he saw actual bugs)

After treatment found a lot of bodies, then nothing. Now the tenant has moved out so I’m doing a thorough deep clean and I’m finding a few bodies. Is it possible they’re weeks old corpses, or would they have decomposed by now?

Hello, and welcome to our forum. To be honest, I’m unaware of any research that has been published on decomposition time for bed bug shells. I don’t expect this will be a reliable way of gauging an infestation’s timeline.

Thank you - didn’t figure there would be any way to answer the question, so just going to assume an infestation and proceed with treatment.
