Thinking we are bug free...(1 post)
We found them in our master bedroom and seemed to be isolated there. Frankly, we had no option but to move to the guest room as my asthma was triggered by these so badly we couldn't stay in the room. However, he did have us continue to shower in there so there was some people activity in the room. We threw away our master BR mattress/boxsprings because they were old and we were planning to get a new one anyway. Since we had to move to another bedroom, our PCO felt we needed to treat the entire area and we did. Master, hallway, son's room, guest room. He also sprayed the hall bath and laundry room up on that floor for safety(we have a split level and all of these were on that top floor of it). We threw out all sheets and linens we had, threw out all pictures in our room. Heck, even all my jewelry is still in the freezer since Aug 30 when our nightmare started..lol. We popped the carpet from the baseboards in all these areas also so he could spray under it. He used the spray that kills them and also one that sterilizes them. He also dusted all the dressers, etc. with that white dust. He came back a week later, another week later, another 10 days later. We saw some head up the walls after he sprayed the first time..so he sprayed also the top of the walls, vents, outlets, and lighting fixtures. During this time we saw some dead adults, we even had about 10 leave our master and go to the hall bath and laundry looking for a place spray wasn't..so he sprayed those to. But each week the bugs became smaller and smaller until right before the last time he sprayed all I saw was the beige nymphs and only 5. He told us this meant we were making progress, basically killing and also sterilizing so the big ones couldn't lay more egs. He then had us pay Steamatic to steamclean all carpets at 200 degrees. Then he came back and sprayed all the baseboards in those places. It's been four weeks now that he was here. We haven't seen a thing. We've been bite free in the guest room and my son is bite free so obviously spraying those rooms was the way to go because they didn't get to us when we moved out of the master bedroom. The tape around the legs of our beds is clear, linens have no marks. We are going to move back into our master after the painters come on Nov 16th. It needed painted anyway and frankly he sprayed the vents so much, etc that we had trails of spray running down the wall so it needs painted. I'm scared to death to move back..but know we have to. He assures us if there was anything left, we'd see it in these four weeks. We check day/night/flashlight/regular light/on the ceiling around the baseboard...I swear as many ladder steps as I've climbed in the last two months I should have buns of steel..LOL.
If you are in the Kansas City Missouri area, I'll give you his name if you want it. He works for a national company but frankly..I'd specifically ask for this guy. He was not only good at what he did..but the customer service, responsivness was great. Frankly, also was his "counseling"..lol. He helped me stay sane even when I burst into tears in front of him the first day.
