Met with exterminator...Help!!!!! Many questions.(5 posts)
So, I've been reading this forum for a while. What does PCO mean?
We have an exterminator - one guy came and inspected, talked with me, and was here for 2 hours. He found (surprise) *nothing*.
Then his boss came. Again (wait for it) *nothing*.
We have some bites. Some tiny spot blood marks on the pillow. One very dead bug that they took back to the office to inspect further.
1. Vikane in a UHaul everything from our bedrooms and another often-used space. DE the rest of the rooms ourselves.
2. Vikane and get them to treat the rest of the rooms. (Only a 30 day guarantee on house treating)
3. Use climb ups and some passive monitors, try to get more evidence before going forward since no other skins, poop, etc. was found.
In the meantime, we change out of bedclothes in the morning. Wash bed stuff every couple days. Anything else we should be doing?
Thanks for any words of wisdom.
Also - has anyone tented and Vikaned an entire house?
PCO = pest control operator, what most of us used to call exterminators.
I think I would go with option #3 at this point until you're sure you have them. Get all white sheets, makes it easier to see the evidence.
you should be glad he found nothing its when the pco says you have them when you don't that you should worry.
If you find any more bugs, take a picture and post it here. There are folks on the board who can try to identify for you.
