Did NOT receive a false negative from K-9.(3 posts)
This seemed important enough for a new post with a specific title.
I was worried about why the dog hadn't found bugs in my house when I'd been waking up to bites for several weeks and woke up to ten the next day. Turns out the dog didn't actually go into my apartment during the first inspection, because of the cat, because I didn't know that they were checking for bedbugs specifically, and even if I had I probably wouldn't have known that a beagle was involved. I knew nothing about any of this until, well, I had to.
I felt that was important because I've claimed before that I got a false negative--that's what I believed, but I was wrong about that. So on the off chance that someone read what I posted and thought of me as an example -- just wanted to make sure.
Anyway. My third treatment was today. The PCO did not answer my questions, which is fine, but I can't report on what he's using other than steam and DE. I can report that in addition to the two I found last night and this morning after a two-week absence, he found another in my bathroom (shared wall with neighbor who brought this upon me) and one in the chair. There were seven in the bad neighbor's apartment, and none found in the apartment of his next door neighbor.
I came home and found one on the kitchen wall, right outside my bedroom. I named it Kafka before killing it, because I made myself read part of "The Metamorphosis" today, because sometimes I need to be reminded that it could be worse.
Are the neighbors' treatments being coordinated with yours?
Across the hall and next to that one -- yes. To the best of my knowledge, nobody else is complaining or being treated, but they do the three of us on the same day.
I was told that there would not be a follow-up K-9 inspection at the end. Is that normal in your opinion?
I was told I could officially consider myself "clear" after 45 days without bite/sign of them, by LL, but for my own peace of mind will extend my countdown to 60.
