25 new bites...(12 posts)
One of the boys went back in their room last night and he woke up with 25 bites on him an a BB in the bed..I spoke with the district manager (John)of Orkin an He is going to come out and do the treatment Himself Friday instead of the other guy (Kenny)He probably wasn't qualified enough...I think they didnt treat the bed frame its wood.. ....He seems really nice ... I hope this will be over soon..I really want to grab the OHDM and start spraying like A mad woman...but i am not....I am so devastated... all I want to do is cry.. All the boys are going back in the girls room and in the living room again... Just when I was starting to think they were almost gone... Why... BB... I wish this was so over...
I am so sorry for you. Your poor son, how is he dealing with it?
We could not get them all on the bed so I threw out the bed and just kept the encased mattress and bought a new metal frame to put it on. It was so hard to throw out his beautiful bed, but I felt I had no other choice.
he is such a trooper... I Gave him a shower rubbed him down with rubbing alchol and put some hydrocortisone with aloe in it on him.. He is so much braver that I am... It didn't even seem to phase him.. He was like MOM leave me alone it don't hurt...get away from me...I rally don't want to throw out the wooden bunk beds.. It would devastate the kids more than the BB them selves... Sentimental reasons.. There aunt that OD (7 years ago) bought it for them A month before she passed..the only thing she ever bought for them.. I will find a way to decontaminate it.. or caulk it or something..If I have to find a big enough container to soaked them in.... somthing...anything...
I see why you don't want to throw away the bed.
that is great your son is ok with this. I haven't told my kids, when my son was getting bit, before we knew it was bb, we thought it was hives. Now he thinks i am just crazy because his room is so empty.
I think he was bit last night for the first time Since Sept 18th.
Just saw three bites on my ear, I have double sided tape on the ground but I seen nothing on it, I sleep on an aerobed, so now I'm gonna put it on the bed itself to see cuz one of the bumps on my ear was a black head cuz I squeezed it and it came out
LOL Vell I needed that... Dang I hate this just when I was starting to be hopefull that I was winning.... I knew they were going to come in FORCE... Just like they did... I bet they were hidding in the dark just like A predator and when He went to bed They attacked... This kinda life sucks... I could just walk away and start fresh But than all my work an money would be for nothing...which I really could live with right now...let some one else deal with it all.
I am A stay at home mom right now an If I was working I would go insane with all the stuff you have to do.. I purchased gallon sized zip lock bags and now I am starting to bag each outfit of the smaller kids outfits individually.. It makes it a whole lot easier and I know that the other clothes wont get re infested... I bag mine and the older kids individually in 13 gallon bags too.. Thank god i still have 80 percent of the clothes and blankest in vacuum sealed bags... I fell like I am being so wasteful with that too. But so what I have to do it...I had to pull out the 2nd set of sheets for the beds and an after I wash and dry I bag each one individually .. Paranoid NO just just don't want to re infest any thing....
WOW you are brave not to tell your kids My kids would be like WHY MOM JUST WHY... it would be why all the time..I would have a hard time coming up with all the excuses on top of dealing with the infestation..
that really sucks That your son may have a bite after that long I would be crying just like I did this morning........ What do you use on the bites... I am thinking about throwing a lot of the toys away .. Just cant treat them all besides Christmas is coming...
I started getting the phantom bites again... or WAIT.....NO it wasn't one just my hair... I'm getting it all chopped off all 18 inches..man this sucks.. all I want to do is scream...an on top of it all which is a whole other story My baby's (WE adopted her)Bio mom is pregnant again and is due in 5 weeks and wrote me a letter saying "I may want you to take this one too.." I will for the kids sake Cause she is not a very good person...
Too much pressure I am sick of it all... I got to get this taken care of real quick.. but I cant...But I am going to really try..*as the Life goes IN reverse * there goes the light at the end of the tunnel..back to square One...
Awwww watkins I can't say I know how u feel cuz we all handle things differently, remember I went to a bar to drink away the stress, LOL that int worked. But it is very frustrating, just don't give up and keep doing what u doing and stay strong. I'm trying my hardest to stay positive myself, I been seeing some marks on my breasts, I think the little freaks been sucking on them, but I dunno the bumps go away fast, and some turns into like a rash. So I dunno what's going on, carpet beetles bite right?
I really fell like getting drunk cause I know it will take away the problem temporarily, I really don't want to do that ...
I have been only going through it for a short period of time BUT it seems LIKE years...
Man on your boobs... I got bit on my throat last night... It really itches...I rubb it with my 50% alcohol It helps a little... then hydrocortisone,,, wish I was non reactive like my hubby... I am really exhausted...
It seems like the self treatment was working better than the professional treatment... it really sucks I have to be at the mercy of a professional.... Why cant they just make BB bombs.. At least that way it would get the whole house..and I really could deal with that.. Two weeks and it would be done in my situation at least..
The district manager at Orkin is coming himself to spray witch makes me fell a little better... but not much...I wish BB were more know to the professionals especially in the boon docks where I live...to many people trying to make a buck off the fear of others in my opinion...The phantom bits have stopped which is a good thing.. I got maybe 2 hours sleep last night... no good for a mother..I am use to it tho..
I was thinking last night that a mother who was not used to all the sleep deprivation could do something stupid an cost a life... a lot of things could go wrong... How tragic would that be...It made me even stronger and more aware for the kids... They really need me right now... Or do I really need them ... BOTH.....
It is crazy that my kids don't know. They do ask a lot of questions and I make up a lot of lies For example when they were coming up the driveway from the bus, the guy with the bb sniffing dog was just leaving, when they asked who was that I said "an electriction and isn't it crazy that he takes his dog to work with him" or say stupid things like "because I said so" Are your kids telling their friends at school, that is another reason I don't want them to know.
I am also a stay at home mom I spend way to much of my time obsessing over these bugs. My house has never been so clean and organized. i have thrown out so much that there is no clutter. I do the laundry as soon as someone takes off their clothes. To walk into my house no one would ever think their are bb in it.
The school felt it necessary not to disclose who had them and said that they would handle it ... There in a better mind frame than i am right now so ill trust them... I am not sure how they handled it... I never followed up maybe they did it behind closed doors quietly ...BUT I did find out a couple of other kids in the school had them.. a little birdie told me..I had to tell the kids not to talk about it to friends if they wanted to talk to some one other than me They could go to the councilor or the principal of there school.. I had to tell the school just in case... I don't want DFCS (Department of family and children services) to get involved cause my kids have bites on them... besides I am already one bed down from all the kids having there own beds...
That electrician must be an awesome dog lover to take his dog to work with him hun....lolololol ...We live in a home that has been in the family for over 60 years and we just started to clean the attic out when We found out we had BB... There was a lot of old stuff up there... we tossed almost all of it... the rest we put in the shed out back I think I am going to toss most of that too... Nothing is usable and It is probably infested with BB any ways...I was really nice to get the house this organized... I love it... I got to throw out stuff that was never used...Junk from the 40's I was going to take it to the cotton pickin festival (10 mile festival with lots of old stuff for sale)and sell it all cause i know it may be worth something but I cant now... I hate having stuff that you never use... now my attic is clean and my House is organized... I did have to throw out some of the toys... but I didn't have to throw out many... I washed all the big stuffed animals (barney for the lil one) and dried them for 2 hours and bagged them.. tossed a few The kids didn't want.... I have a lot of stuff treated and bagged... I really need a packtite... it would be so helpful... Finances can handle that payment on top of all the others right now But I am planning to get one hopefully soon......
I would also like a packtite, but they are expensive. We are going away for a few days and I would like to put the luggage in the packtite when we get home. I'll have to see what my husband thinks. I did order the zipbags to put our luggage in when we are at the hotel.
I had a bb sniffing dog here today and was told the house is free of bb. I hope that is true.
I will shout a prayer for you....
