my plan.(5 posts)
okay, so for my plan i am going to be purchasing a steam cleaner, double sided tape (carpenters double sided tape?) and more bb monitors.
i'm going to vacume up all the rooms and steam clean the bejebus out of them and i plan on putting the tape all along the walls .
daily vacume , daily steam clean?
i feel confident i really want to beat this.
later on in the day i am going to bring my bed bug sealed in my ziplock over to my neighbors, i want to ask them if they have ever seen it before in their unit. i honestly don't believe i brought them into my apartment when i moved.. i had mostly new everything, and they most that i have found were in the washroom my boyfriend says he seen 2 come out of the crevis in the wall.
all i know at this moment, is that if the people next to me do infact have an infestation i will have to go to my landlord.. because living in an apartment with bed bugs.. i can only imagine how many bugs are crawling in the walls.
Shouldn't you talk to your landlord regardless of whether neighbors admit to a problem or not? Many people don't know they have them, since people often don't see them right away and many don't react to bites. Others know about the problem and are afraid to admit it, unfortunately.
your absolutely right.. i should and i am!
and yes i agree.. it's embarrassing
If you go to the bed bug registry (http://bedbugregistry.com/) you can put in your address and see if there were/are other complaints of bedbugs in your building or even on your street.
It may not come up as positive as some people don't report it or don't know about the registry but it might help.
