HELP! need advice(2 posts)
So one day around 2AM, I was on the computer and I noticed a small brown bug running across my mattress. It was an automatic response to get a tissue and kill it. Im scared of bugs/insects in general so I looked it up for a long time, I found out it was a bed bug...yikes. The next night, I wake up at 4AM and find two different stages of bed bugs near my pillow, none of them were adult though. I told my dad and he lifted the mattress to find one bug filled with blood and another not. We took all the covers and blankets and clothes and washed them, and dried them on high. We got a plastic mattress and box spring encasement with this sort of scent thing that says it will kill it. I left it on for two weeks. We took it off the other day. But then, I got a singular bite on my thigh on one night, one bite on my right arm on one night, and then another one on on right arm. I was paranoid once again and decided to get my covers and mattress. I found two bed bug cast skins under the covers........ew.....It looked exactly like the bug except it was brownish/tannish color..I freaked out. So I took all my clothes, covers and blankets and washed them again. That night, I woke up itching on the back of my left thigh and I turned on the light and found two very small, very red blood stains..I don't know if it was from a bug or the bite itself. I have checked my bed several times and have not found any other signs of live bed bugs or eggs. I'm not sure if I have bedbugs STILL or not, I cant post the picture of the cast skins because my dad threw them away. Anyways, PLEASE HELP. I'm so paranoid that I couldn't sleep cause I felt like there were bugs crawling on my skin but when I turned on the light, nothing.
so anyone who have experienced it or have advice, PLEASE HELPP
I'm by no means a pro. I just seen nobody answered and thought I should try an offer something.
My advice would be to call an exterminator and get an inspection. I believe most don't charge for it. But I would definately make that call. Better to be safe then sorry.
