So I do have bed bugs...(2 posts)
Still haven't seen any, BUT:
- last week I found some teeny tiny blood stains on my pillow. Proceeded to wash and dry all bedding, Packtited my pillows for about 6 hours after the few hours it took to reach 120. Steamed my entire room including mattress and chair, having added Murphy's soap to the water.
Nothing anywhere (no fecal, no blood stains, no suckers, no cast skins. Nothing on Passive).
Today there was bigger blood spots, on sheets, on pillows, and on blanket. I said Oh no, now I know for sure. After I removed all the bedding to wash/dry/packtite, I saw yet more blood stains at the corner bottom of the mattress, on top of the bb cover I have in place. Yes, nightmare.
Now I've been steaming the room yet again. No further signs other than the blood spots and the bites. Yet I feel it's a nightmare and wonder now when it will ever be over. Don't they die from the steam? From washing/drying/packtiting? From the many previous treatments done before I moved? Inluding Vikane!!!!!!!
So... Venting aside. Now I'm unemployed and can't afford treatment. I'm not sure I'd trust many of them either considering I spent so much getting Vikane and here I am. My mom (whose house I'm in) does not even want to hear about bbs. Complete denial.
What are my options? I'm thinking to keep on steaming, and perhaps additionally buying Tri-die and the Cedar thing? How and where would be the best ways/places to apply them? Please, this nightmare can't go on.
OK, I figured how to put pictures here:
