    Have you considered the possibility of bat bugs instead of bedbugs? They look similar to bedbugs and to carpet beetles, but seldom nest in bedding. Other species that act similarly include swallow bugs and poultry bugs. In a high rise building one might expect to encounter them coming inside from nests just as easily as bedbugs coming in from neighboring apartments. Here's an info page from Colorado State about the various blood feeders in that family: Bat Bugs and Bed Bugs
