    i have read labels of some of the "bed bug foggers" they seem to contain maybe 1% permethin, i found a raid fogger with 12.6%, any thoughts on trying this? i can not locate any bugs, skins, nothing but keep getting bit
    again, today woke up with bites all over my legs

    foggers don't reach where the bugs are
    so you would waste your time and poison your environment
    i've heard that foggers can also scatter them and make the infestation harder to treat...
    maybe some more experienced people can weigh in here...

    Definitely don't use a fogger - it will scatter them further into the walls if that is indeed what you have. I am having the same issue - bites, but no bugs or any traces of them whatsoever. I have had the exterminator here three times now (very patient man!) and he says I don't have bed bugs and that I must be getting bit by something else. My bites are not like typical bed bug bites (in threes or rows or even every night. I can't even say that I am getting bit at night for sure. I do have some bites scattered on my body here and there and they are very itchy! It is also really driving me crazy as you probably know for yourself. I am sleeping all covered up in a turtle neck and long pants tucked in my socks! I have the climb-up intersector cups under each bed post and the bed is isolated like an island in the middle of the room to prevent any bugs from crawling up the wall and dropping onto the bed. The cups have turned up nothing in over three weeks. Anyway, I know how you feel and I wish you the best. This site is very informative and a great resource whether you have bed bugs or not. I hope that we both don't - give me anything else but that!!!
