Moving, Spraying, And All That Fun Stuff.(4 posts)
As the title states, our apartment is getting sprayed, today (Busy busy busy).
We're only taking clothes (including blankets), Entertainment (games, movies, T.V, computer, books), and little mementos (photos, ETC.), My cat and fishes. (No dishes, don't ask. :<)
Is there anything I should be worried about? I vacuum everyday and wash the walls and get in the base boards.
We're throwing everything away that's wooden basically-- No wait... We're not taking anything wooden...
I know it may seem like extreme lengths to get rid of this little pests, but we're tried living here and it's not working. No one is trying and our caretaker is convinced it's just coming from us and is just spraying above us and below us.
There were a few times they could not spray because we kept way too much stuff and was not ready. Now... We're ready. Threw away about 2/3rds of out apartment. Went threw our clothes 3 times and threw about another 1/3 of clothes each time. Now we only have clothes for a week at a time (which is fine with everyone here).
Last time I talked with you guys. I was in dire need of help. I didn't know what I was doing, but now I think I got a handle on this and I'm getting rid of these buggers and they're not coming with me.
I'm so stressed, I'm just wondering if there is anything else I should look into.
Well, I'm home from my friends to whom I'm eternally grateful for housing us for the short period of time to stay out of the house due to poison in the Air after they were done spraying.
I'm still very worried, I was wondering about one or two things; How long does a new born bed bug live without a blood source? and What else can I do to be ready for the move? Should I buy some preemptive Bed Bug gear or something of that caliber?
I'm not 100% sure about everything. I'm only 17 and I'm just trying to do things for my mom and what not.
This site has just calmed me into thinking that this is not a hole me and my family cannot dig ourselves out of.
Thank you for your kindness and more words of wisdom hopefully that follows after this post (Thank you in advance for your kindness).
I read yesterday nymphs can live up to 3-4 months without eating... I don't think leaving and then going back will help. If there's a renter's association I would contact them and ask them what you can do against the landlord's practices... Hold on ^^
@infestedwbb, Thanks. Oh we're not coming back to that apartment. Even if I tell my mom that we might take them with us, she just wants to leave.
Would investing money into one of those "PackTite Portable Heating Unit" be a good move?
I was thinking about buying one for the longest time.
