Does isolating bed, couch work? What's the downside?(1 post)
I've been seeing, there's dispute on whether isolating works. But can't find details.
Is there any reason the following (plan below) would:
1. Not work, if left in place for 6 or so months from last bite
2. Create increased problems for an exterminator if I eventually need one.
Everything says, get a PCO if you can from the start. So what am I missing in how this works, and what goes wrong?
I'm in a townhouse, just me. Doctor is thinking my lots of welts are bedbugs (breakfast, lunch dinner pattern). Currently I'm on a visit to family for 3 weeks. On return, I'll 4mm plastic cover & duct tape up:
- bed frame, mattresses, couch.
Add climb ups & remove all bridges (to floor, walls, furniture) & talc weekly per the company's instructions.
Does this work? The bedbugs would not go dormant since I'd be bait they're trying to get to. They'd either die in the climb ups, or in the plastic encasings. I currently spend almost all home time on the bed, or couch. I eat on couch, do paperwork on couch/bed. I only walk around... to get food, do laundry, take a shower.
I'd really appreciate help!! Thanks!!
