Is it time to debag from the Ziplocks?(2 posts)
I just finished my third treatment (the traditional, residual treatment) 5 days ago. I had a third treament because between my first and second treatment I caught 5 bbs in various locations in my apartment. Between my second and third treatment there was nothing. The PCO also noted "no visible activity" on the invoice of my third treatment. And then it happened. Last night I awoke in my bed to 4 itchy bites along my neck. I couldn't find any evidence in my bed of any bbs but I am sure that a bb was the culprit.
I plan on moving in June and I also plan on getting everything (that I elect to keep) treated in a Vikane gas chamber. In the meantime, can I debag everything? I have been living out of these Ziplocks for 10 weeks now and I simply can't take it anymore. Will debagging all of my treated shoes and clothes for 6 weeks or so only make it worse? I plan on treating those things again before my move anyway. I just want to pretend to live in a normal apartment for a little while and I am done dealing with this PCO whose techniques don't seem to be working.
The idea behind bagging is this:
You debug items through the use of heat and then place them in bags to assure yourself and your PMP that the items are bug free.
You keep them in bags so as to avoid having to retreat them with heat which, over the long run, can cause items to wear out faster.
You also keep items in bags to make it easier for the PMP to treat the structure.
If you're okay with retreating the items and if you aren't going to have any more treatments, and if you're okay with needing to redo all that work if for some reason you must have a retreatement (you're a renter and the landlord insists, for example), then no, there's no reason you can't unbag.
