Today I caulked alot. Alot. We had a blow out of bugs in one room of the apt. because everyone below us treated but we decided to hold off so we could prep better (don't ask). Anyway, there have been tons of bugs in this one area around this one bed. Aside from the point.
All in plain sight (it's not a complicated bed).
I started caulking. I sealed those little [expletive deleted] in. No, they can't get out. I. SEALED. THEM. IN. They will suffocate, or starve. And it's an amazing feeling. Add to that the countless others I've decapitated, saturated in poison...
I can't wait until we get treated again. (fourth treatment)
I'm sorry for all your bedbug travails, Rather! I hope you can put them behind you real soon.
Everyone getting treated is great, provided the treatments are appropriate. If the bugs are escaping an adjoining apartment in such numbers (assuming your observation is correct), can they be using the right chemicals? Don't want to upset you, but it does sound a bit worrying. I'm so glad you caulked.
We will all treat in unison on the 21st. And most likely again.
Sorry it is still going on. Caulking is a very good idea. How big is your building? Is everyone cooperating with hot washing/drying and bagging clothing?
Is there an enmass, written protocol going on in the building? It would help if all caulked in the same timefame--if ... all got treatments simultaniously--I think. The other measures would all get better results if all done orderly and concurrently.
