3rd treatment question(3 posts)
So I got the PCO to come out for a 3rd treatment in 2 days.
---I asked about prep work, they said nothing special was needed. They said it wasn't even necessary to wash bedding. The idea is for any possible live ones to fall off bedding and die from treatment. Does this make sense to anyone?
---They also said for retreatments they don't usually take as long because they inspect and treat as needed. I don't like this because if THEY don't see any bugs then what will they treat?
---Also, I asked about treating mattresses with encasements on. They said they prefer to treat the mattress. I don't want to risk tearing the encasements like I did last time. When that happened I just put another set of encasements over the ones that tore.
Can someone please please please let me know what you think about the 3 statements above?
As far as my wanting to leave encasements on, it's not because I just don't feel like taking them off, I was thinking that they are going to stay on forever so why not just treat the encasements?
A) They may be relying on a residual chemical. Retreats, depending on the case can be much less invasive and may not require the prep work of the initial treatment.
B)The first treatment can be longer than others; it's a new case so a thorough treatment is required. Again, if they are using a residual chemical this inspection may not be as in depth. They also know the problem areas from the first treatment which can be a time saver.
C)That's something you'll want to work out with your PCO. If they treat the mattress then there is less of a concern of tearing the encasement and exposing yourself to any live bed bugs trapped inside.Bird dreams are not admissible in court.
