you want your bed bugs gone?(1 post)
I really feel sorry for some of you still dealing with bed bugs...I myself went thru the infestation which was diagnosed on August 31, 2009. Truly I see many of you continuing to live with them and I say HOW? I certainly couldnt....I had to get a plan and figure this thing out... starting with NO experience on the subject it was tough but.....all worth it because now I have been living over a month with NO bed bugs....and when I tell you that I had at least 250 bites on my left arm alone, I am not exxagerating! My doctor had no clue what it was & that only added to the time frame of these dirty little suckers being able to breed. During the process I learned alot and I am on this forum to help, if possible anyone else who wants to get rid of these and move on with their lives....This is what I did....First I contacted my local etemologist to hear from him who he would recommend for treatment & when I tell you we have many pest companies, I ended up going with the most expensive one- the ONLY one who would give me a 100% guarantee...on a limited income, it was tough but I contacted my landlord & he paid for 1/2 ....I then asked questions and learned....Terminix came in & did several CO2 treatments & I had to wait- almost a month for the eggs to hatch for another treatment....3 all together- before I could move anything out (yes, I moved) I got rid of every piece of furniture that I had & the stuff I did bring was gone thru with a fine tooth comb----ALL clothes were washed and pics taken out of pic frames, etc....Yes, I had nice cherry & oak furniture but I wanted this thing to be behind me & yes, it is tough but I am now in a new place, yes I am sleeping on a queen air bed (instead of my nice pillowtop)and I have a loveseat instead of my sectional and....I know where THESE items came from as they are used----Big No No for me from now on! I am 43 & feel like I am starting over, but hey, thats OK--- because I am Bug FREE! My life will never be the same as I check my bed ( air mattress)every night and am constantly aware of any bugs I see but I will chalk that up as a learning exp....Hopefully one day I wont feel the need to do that but for now I still am.... Hope this helps!
