Advice on PCO's treatment and future options(2 posts)
Some back ground:
I last week I moved into a 1BD/1Bath apartment and on the second night in the apartment I realized that it was infested with bed bugs. After realization I went around looking for them and was able to find 15 of them in the house in different location's i.e Bedroom, LIving room, Bath Room and Kitchen entrance. I have not been bitten since the first day, when I was sitting on the floor, so I believe my bed is clean. However, everyday since that I have been seeing few of the bugs them on the wall's or the carpet floor of the house. They seem to be everywhere and not limited to any particular area.
I got my first treatment done on 11th i.e yesterday. The PCO used Phantom and Alpine dust. He pulled off the carpet form two of the corners in bed room and treated those area's. Since I was not present in the room I don't know where he used the dust. He also treated the Bed Frame. Then he treated the living room and did the same as in the bed room i.e pulled out the carpet from two corners and treated them. He also treated the plug points. However, he did not look in the other two corners I think, nor did he treat the kitchen and bath room. He will be doing the second visit in 5 days time and then the third one in five days after that.
On the day after the treatment have already seen 9 bugs on the living room wall. Most of them were super tiny nymphs and a couple slightly bigger ones. They were in the corners of the wall.
My questions are:
1> Does the approach of treatment seems correct? Should he be treating the kitchen, Bathroom and other corners floors of the room also?
2> Is the frequency of 5 days between treatment correct?
3> Is it expected that I see so many bugs immediately after treatment? Most people just see a couple.
4> Should I consider moving out as an option? I don't know if 100% elimination is possible given the dispersion of bugs in the house.
