UV Blacklight Inspection by a PCO?(3 posts)
i've had some helpful comments from ActionK9 and sickofbugs in my post about disclosure to coworkers, here: http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/when-should-you-disclose-your-bb-problem-to-coworkersacquaintances
but, i wanted to give this topic a string of its own: is a UV Blacklight Inspection a valid method to search for a possible BB infestation in a unit or building? i know that a blacklight can be useful for looking through books for BB, or maybe in electrical outlets, but beds?
i feel really bad for sickofbugs, and i'm worried that my coworker (whose LL had a PCO come and do a UV wand inspection of his unit) has perhaps been deceived. his LL has now cleared him, after one inspection with this wand thing, and i don't believe they ever looked in his boxspring.
comments are appreciated.
PS: i just noticed a promo video clip on google for a national geographic program called "vampires: is it real?" we all know the tiny cimex variety are real, don't we? happy halloween!
Bed bugs and eggs will fluoresce to some extent and to some it creates a better light to see under low lighting conditions headboards and furniture would be my preferred ares for using it.
thanks, winston o!
