my so-far-success-story ... should I?(6 posts)
I wrote a version of my story (for a purpose other than this forum), it is kind of long, and it may seem redundant to the experienced. Should I still post it? I believe it will be helpful to the neophytes to the bed bug world, and it could be an interesting read to some. BUT it is more an essay than blog and maybe people don't want to read that much. Your opinion/advice?
I'd like to read it, if nooone else would could you pm it to me? I'm a total newbie and getting more and more discouraged thinking of what is ahead for me.
This person is no longer active on the site. I was her PCO & worked in about 10 apartments in her building. In short 5 were infested 2 had thermal that failed and also some chemical treatments that had failed before I worked in the building. I inspected surrounding apartments and list of those infested was about 5 if memory serves me correct. I chemically treated all the infestations and they are bug free now about 6-8 months.
The other 5 apartments did preventive DE work and sealing with me but were never effected from the original infestations. I also remember her getting a K9 inspection that cleared her, but she had bugs when I did her inspection just a few days following the dog. I'm sure her story would have been interesting to many because the case was a bit complex because of the tenants directly below her ... but she never wrote her story.
Oh I see thank you. Can I ask you a question as a PCO then? Should I be suspicious of a tec who supposedly treated my apartment but when I returned nothing not so much as a box had been moved? Also, I'm insisting he come back in 2 weeks, in the meantime can I spray myself like closets around my bed etc to keep things from getting worse? I really have no confidence in this guy, I called him after the treatment to ask what he found and he said, he didn't look he was just told to spray. I lifted my mattress and they are all over my box spring- I have a box spring encasement on order though I assume I have to vacuum them up first. But that means he didn't even look at my bed. I am reading about so many solutions here. Right now just to feel like I"m doing something I'm taking everything non clothing I own and cleaning it in boiling water.
I'm sorry if this is taking this topic in a different direction, I'm new here.
no problem .. if you are outside of NY I can give you some advice via the phone. But from what you are telling me it does not sound good at all. Any tech doing bed bug work ad not looking should be serving you and I ice cream at carvel.
Let me know and I'll try and advise you the best I can.
I am in Massachusetts.
