HELP!..Seen 2-4 bedbugs each day but not seeing any now(6 posts)
Alright sO about a month ago I discovered that I had a infestation. I have five rooms in my house and have seen them in each one of them.
I saw 2-4 in the bedrooms for at least 2 weeks since then(killed them). I can confirm that I killed ONE female and probably about 5 males and 7 nymphs(2-4 star).But now I have not seen even one for the past two and half weeks.
I also have a ant and a small spider problem throughout the house and have read that ants and spiders are enemies of bed bugs. So I'm wondering if if my infestation is really all that bad? And if these other insects are feeding on the bed bugs?
Stop kidding yourself! If you found that many bugs in more then one room ... you have a problem that needs professional treatment.
Don't mean to sound harsh but get it taken care of before they become harder to get rid of. Ants and spiders will not solve your problem.
Truth be told I'm doing self treatment. Paying 1300 is way to much for me and I would rather do it myself. I already have everything planned out as I have read dozens of articles and dozens post.
Also I was not specific in what i said. I have seen 1-4 throughout all bed rooms(3). When I say 1-4 I mean as a whole and not each room I've seen 1-4. I have not seen any in the other rooms. But seen nymphs on the walls in the hallways. Like I said, I have confirmed one female and have seen any for more than 2 weeks
I'm under the impression that seeing just a few bugs is bad news, because they tend to hide. Recall the person on this forum who finally found a small cluster of them after seven months of looking. If you are seeing nymphs in the hallways, and adult bugs in more than one room (even just one in each room), it sound like they have reproduced quite a bit. Honestly, friend, I would use a professional service at this point. Use your credit card and pay it off as you can. You are going to spend way too much money on home remedies before you realize you need professional treatment, which means, of course, you will spend more than 1300 dollars. I could be wrong, but I think you have seen enough bugs to suggest that you have a sizable population. Good luck either way.
I will spend more than 1300 just On getting it "professionally done". I read the stories of people having multiple treatments and spending tons more. I've also read stories where the pco does not know anything or does not inspect/treat properly. I already spent about 200 bucks getting the sprays and dust that I will be using. I'm gonna spend about 200-300 more on encasements so I will be well under that amount the "professionals" want me to pay. Also truth be told I've read so many studies,articles, and post from people like me. YOu can buy all the products that these companies right online so to think that I have to shell out all of my money for them to do some quick job. Where I have to wonder if they treated everywhere the bed bugs may be hiding. I have done my homework and know more than most of the pco's i've talked to. Therefore to think that you have to spend all of your money like this is absorb especially if you research and know what your are doing. I don't have money spilling out of pockets to spend thousands of dollars.
Hi, Dre. If you're going to self-treat, read a good guide,like this one, from our Resources page. It's written by university/public health experts, not by hucksters or know-it-alls on "content farms" or YouTube. And don't assume that throwing out your furniture will contribute to your solution. Bed bugs are not deities. They're not impressed by sacrifices. If treated successfully, you (or a pro) should be able to save your furniture.
