Comment on Bed Bug Encasements by xtina https://bedbugger.com/bed-bug-encasements/#comment-79889 Thu, 09 May 2019 21:32:56 +0000 http://bedbugger.com/?page_id=1023#comment-79889 Dear bed bug experts – I recently discovered that my daughter’s room has bed bugs. I think it’s early stages as she has only been bitten in the last 7 days. I’ve fogged her room, had it professionally treated w/chemicals and powders, had her mattress steam cleaned and encased her box bring, mattress and new pillows. My question is what do I do w/her down blanket? I’ve had it professionally laundered but it’s my understanding only hot heat or deep freeze will guarantee ridding the pests (if they were indeed inside the down blanket). I never found any bugs but there were small red remnants on the corner of her box spring and I did see 1 bug so small the normal eye would not see on her wooden bed frame. Could be a baby bug, not sure, in any case if I treat the blanket w/intense heat it will ruin it. Should I throw it out? I thought about buying an encasement for the blanket, they are expensive but I am not sure if there were bugs in the blanket, would it keep them in. Like I said, pretty sure early stages and I’m not thinking this was an infestation. I wouldn’t like the idea of preserving an infested blanket but the darn thing was top of the line and very expensive. Any advise is much appreciated

All good points. This is a high traffic store and open 24 hours, so there’s a lot of potential for introductions from all sides.

Molecular tests on the bugs would show if from same population. Definitely Apple took too long to respond.

Comment on New York’s Fifth Avenue Store has bed bugs by David Cain https://bedbugger.com/2019/04/18/new-yorks-fifth-avenue-apple-store-has-bed-bugs/#comment-79843 Thu, 18 Apr 2019 16:12:48 +0000 https://bedbugger.com/?p=30887#comment-79843 You are definitely onto something there.

While bedbugs are not seasonal there is a tendency for people to respond more to the bites in warmer weather. In recent years in the UK this has not marked the coming of spring but the warm spurts between the “beast’s from the East’s”.

A keep pattern spotter soon realizes there is a 3 – 5 day lag between NY reports and London reports.

Unfortunately the reality of the maths is not as sexy as the “blame game” and any location with a footfall in the thousands per day is going to have regular issues with bedbugs, its a reality of keeping the doors open.

I do miss the blog.

Comment on Identifying the problem: Do I have bed bugs? Or something else? by Laura Hildebrand https://bedbugger.com/how-to-get-rid-of-bed-bugs-bed-bug-faqs/identifying-the-problem-do-i-have-bed-bugs-or-something-else/#comment-79042 Sat, 05 May 2018 20:51:17 +0000 http://bedbugger.com/?page_id=1061#comment-79042 I had my bed checked for bedbugs months ago, about two months after my daughter had a bad experience babysitting in a bedbug infested house. My exterminator inspected my room for over an hour and found no evidence of bedbugs. I have never been bitten. Almost four months later, I woke up to fairly large sized drops of dried blood on my bottom sheet. There is also a small amount of blood on the back of the shirt I was wearing to sleep in. I have not been bitten, nor have I seen any other evidence of bedbugs. But I don’t know where the dried blood could have come from. Could I have bedbugs after all this time?

Comment on Help? by Nobugs https://bedbugger.com/about/help/#comment-78959 Sat, 03 Feb 2018 15:22:13 +0000 http://bedbugger.com/?page_id=968#comment-78959 Hi Sara,
For future reference, or if you want more responses, this FAQ gives information about how to use the forums, including registering and posting: https://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/how-to-use-the-forums

As for your question, you seem to be asking if it’s possible that bed bugs are in your TV and could be transmitted to your new home. Experts tell us bed bugs don’t usually infest electronics. However, it’s possible, and likelihood would depend on where bed bugs were in your home, how many there were, and what effects treatment had on them. None of us can assess that, unfortunately.

Note that simply leaving items in a storage unit for a year won’t necessarily mean they are bed bug free— particularly if they’re not sealed. They can not only spread to others, but bed bugs could potentially bite a person or animal and survive.
