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.

Comment on Help? by Sara Apel https://bedbugger.com/about/help/#comment-78957 Sat, 03 Feb 2018 08:32:23 +0000 http://bedbugger.com/?page_id=968#comment-78957 I may be posting this in the wrong area, but for some reason I couldn’t find how to register so I could post through the forums. My situation is as follows:
October 2017, I and several neighbors realized we had an infestation. I took my dog and moved out that night. I began treating my clothes and once they were done, I didn’t take them back in. This was a final straw in an ongoing saga with this complex, so I was moving no matter what. A pest control company inspected and said a chemical treatment was only needed, and even though I knew that would not be sufficient, they did the treatment. Two days later, I went back, and sure enough, they were definitely very much still alive. The majority of my belongings were taken to a landfill, furniture and the like. My clothes were treated by myself with high heat treatments at the laundry mat and taken to my friends place. The complex finally listened to my insistance that a chemical treatment was not sufficient, and a week later, the pest company came and did another chemical treatment with a different chemical, as well as a heat treatment. Two days after that, I took the items left from the treated unit to a storage locker about the size of a walk-in closet. I am now in a new apartment complex and with the exception of my clothes, everything here is literally brand new. The remaining items that are still in the storage unit I plan to leave there for a year, but I would really like to bring my tv. It was always on a table in my living room (which did have bugs, they were on my couch), but after the first chemical treatment, it was unplugged and on the floor for the second chemical and heat treatment, then moved to a storage unit, where it has sat for a little over 3 months. Literally everything else will stay in the unit, but do you think I’m safe to bring my tv to my new place, or should I wait?

Comment on Identifying the problem: Do I have bed bugs? Or something else? by Elizab 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-78523 Tue, 21 Nov 2017 01:16:11 +0000 http://bedbugger.com/?page_id=1061#comment-78523 Hi all,

I stayed at my cousins last night and woke up with one bite on my leg after sleeping in bed. Ive been shown how to check for bed bugs before so I lifted the mattress and sure enough there were a few black spots. I had my bags on the floor about 2 feet away from the bed – is it likely bed bugs could have crawled into them ? They were there for about 10 hours. I travelled the whole day following and as soon as I got home washed everything and dried it on the highest setting for an hour. Should this be enough to have killed any that might’ve clung to my belongings ? Super paranoid. Thanks.

Comment on Four Charleston firehouses infested by bed bugs by Leah https://bedbugger.com/2017/06/01/bed-bugs-charleston-firehouses/#comment-77498 Thu, 26 Oct 2017 23:41:28 +0000 http://bedbugger.com/?p=21892#comment-77498 What experts did you speak to that you are referring to? If a certified bed bug dog has an accuracy of 98% why then would they need to be verified? Who is your source? Dogs are accurate, certified dogs are precise. They are trained to smell nymphs and eggs.

I am not a pest management professional, but the general rule is you should only use a pesticide product in accordance with the label instructions. I would read the label and see if this use is on the label.

If you’d like feedback from others including possibly from PMPs, I recommend posting in our active user forums: http://Bedbugger.com/forum/

Weve cleaned and treated with bed bug dust with diatomaceous earth. Were about to use a Bayer advanced home pest with germ killer around the base boards. We also bought some allerease maximum allergy and bed bug protector that were going to put on the mattress. Do we need to put some of the dust on the mattress then zip it in the protector and leave it or vacuum it before we put it in the protector. Thanks for the feed back.

I’d strongly suggest getting a pro in to inspect. If you are being bitten multiple times daily, there will be visual evidence an inspector can find–this may include bed bugs, fecal stains, cast skins or eggs. Fecal stains may be the easiest evidence to find.

Please repost your message in our active user forums for more input from other sufferers and experts.
