could the bug bites be bed bugs?

We suspect bed bugs as the cause for the bug bites on my almost 3 yr old son, it looks like the bites from bed bugs posted on the internet. There was also blood on his sheets. He has only had bites for 2 days, so we caught it early. The question comes from the fact that we live in an apartment. 5 or 6 months ago bed bugs were found in the upstairs apartment and they treated the building for them.

Could the bugs hide for that long and now come out from hiding? The apartment maintenance guy said that they treated properly for them, so it shouldn't be from them.

There are no obvious bugs or signs of bugs around his bed, so the apartment manager may not want to treat for bugs they can't see.

What is the next best step (aside from washing all the bedding in hot water).

Thanks

Since we found the bites on Sat. and there was icy road Monday morning, we were not able to talk with the manager before 11:45am on Monday. The manager will have someone clean for the bugs, which will make me feel much better about being in my home.

Advice on the best way to get rid of them is still welcome.
