Hello, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my nightmare. I keep reading stories of people who just can't get rid of these things and its a little discouraging. Around Labor Day weekend I started getting bites on my ankles and thought they were mosquitos. It took about a month of repeat bites until someone told me to check my bed for bedbugs. I came home one night after work and lifted my sheets and saw one crawling across my mattress. I crushed it and blood shot out. Gross. I then lifted my mattress and there were the rest of them, sleeping in the folds of my dust ruffle. I saw about 10-12 bugs. I'll leave out the details of my breakdown and get to the following day. My landlord allowed me to find a PCO. I found a company called pest patrol who deals solely with bedbugs. They sent me a preperation sheet and I started my mission. I live in a studio and I'm not the type to keep clutter. I threw out everything under my bed, cleared my closets and vacuumed everything. The things I didn't like shoes and belts were vacuumed and sealed in bags. They came the following day for the first treatment and were scheduled to come back 3 weeks later. I didnt see any bugs anywhere in the apt other than my bed so I was hopeful. I decided not to stay there in between treatments. They came on 10/22 and I moved back in on 10/24. They seemed sure they had gotten rid of them but I am terrified they will come back.
Does anyone know how likely it is that they will?
I know this is a difficult question but I am just wondering if it is common or is it more likely they will terrorize me again. My landlord choose not to tell the other tenants which I new was a huge mistake (her idiot lawyer told her not to) so I stuck notes under the doors of my neighbors making them aware of the problem. I am so paranoid and I have to take sleeping pills every night. The PCO used 2 chemicals and drilled holes in the wall next to my bed to "create a barrier". I plan on caulking every crack. It seems like every story I hear is about people dealing with this problem for months. Does anyone know of people who are rid of these after only 2 treatments? PLEASE SHARE!
Please disregard this, I posted on your other thread.
