My apartment was treated for the second time a week ago for what has been classified as a "low level" infestation in the bedroom I'm renting for the summer (and might I add, I've never felt so lucky). One of the building managers had mentioned to me that very rarely had pest control needed to come back a third time, but since my roommate and I are moving at the end of the summer she schedule a third treatment on August seventeenth just to be sure.
Between her telling me this, and few bites (it's summer, I'm telling myself, they could be from anything) and the fact that I haven't seen any bugs since the morning of the most recent treatment, I was feeling a little wary and paranoid (warynoid?) but trying to be optimistic nevertheless.
Then this morning, I went to strip the bed to wash the sheets and noticed a small (nymph I guess) shed skin on the mattress protector. While this could be from before the most recent treatment, I would think that if it had been there then, either I or the PCO would have caught it before. Maybe it's just a straggler...? Even so though, my optimism is taking a bit of a dive. :/
I feel you brother. I am fighting . My first month since I found them. Had been getting bit for a month before that maybe longer. Well I've had my second spray and things have quieted down a huge bit.hadn't been bit in 8 days. Kids tho got bit 4 days ago. But last.night me and the Mr. Got single bites him on the stomach mine on the leg just 1 and I felt defeated again. You never know with these bugs. But I'm getting my 3 rd treatment on Tuesday and lookin forward to possibly killen all of em . It's a hard situation to stomach I wake up to 3 nightly alarms to check on my boys room cuz that's where I'd seen them mostly after 1st treatment. I woke up at 230 and bam I had a bite I react rather quickly so I know that bastard got me.... Prayers and good thoughts sent your way. May the force be with us. The force of poison. I used to be all environmentaly concious but after this I want all the poison no matter what happens to the earth lol
Ugh, feelinghelpless. I definitely sympathize with you. I hope all goes well and that we're both able to kick this thing soon...The sooner the frickin' better!
