not to sure about this pco(6 posts)
Well the pco finally came on wednesday.He said that we do indeed have bedbugs I had a bug in a baggie for him to look at.He's coming back on Monday his instructions were to take all pictures of the walls move everything away from the windows and everything else needs to be at least a foot away from the walls also to remove all bedding from beds.
He also said to leave everything in the draws and closets?First of all he was supposed to give me a prep sheet which he supposedly left in his truck so he said he would give it to landlord to give to me..well he never did give it to landlord.
I had to call her and ask her what we were supposed to do to prepare for him.That's when she told me the above.He also said he would probably have to treat 2 times then we should be ok.
Does this sound right..I was literally eaten alive last night I slept for about 1 hr off and on..I am so tired and scared everyone seems to think I'm overacting.
I don't even want to go home anymore!!
He never gave any instruction about what to do with our clothes.I had been washing clothes like crazy after I read on here to start doing that..I just dont know what's what right now !!!
I would wash and dry all clothing and bag it in sealed bags. It cannot hurt and may help a great deal. Most prep sheets we have come across ask you to do this.
The prep sheet you never got may indeed say this too. It is possible that the landlord is not fully aware of the contents of the prep sheet.
The other instructions sound correct. Do your prep and let the PCO treat. You will likely need at least two treatments spaced about 2 weeks apart. Try to pin them down on the follow-up date asap.
Try to relax. It will start to get better very soon.
so I should empty the drawers and closets?
Well, if the drawers and closets are full of clothing I would personally wash, dry, and bag them. That is included in most prep instructions.
If you are worried, you can run this by the PCO first. But most people are told to do it.
I would really see if you could speak to someone at the PCO (ask your landlord first) since most people are given instructions on emptying drawers and closets for treatment.
ok thanks! I'll see if I can speak to the company directly.
My prep sheet didn't specify what to do about the stuff in the drawers, but it did say the drawers had to be emptied out so the PCO could treat the furniture. I washed and bagged everything (ruined a few things in the process) and decided to leave everything bagged until I thought I was BB free.
