    UPDATE....................i was still getting bit after my second straying because i just sealed the one or so bb in the saran wrap and they found a way out (on the 5th day) anyways I got a encasement with a zipper and i put it right over the mattress and left the saran wrap on............I duct taped the zipper (twice) then I wrapped the whole thing in saran wrap again then i wrapped it in clear tape because I have 2 cats so just in case...............so far so good no more bites and this is the 6th day and NOTHING............thank god !!!! I am going to get 2 twin mattresses for my son's room but I need to save up first then I need a bed for my room and a new sofa........... !!!!

    Does anybody know how many days of being bite free before you know you are free and clear ?

    thank you

    It's very rare I find activity after 3 weeks the activity usually declines after around 14 days and is usually totally clear at day 30.

    UPDATE NO.2..................................I spoke too soon, I took a nap yesterday and I got 3 bites on my bottom and when I woke up this morning I have one on each leg.....................what should I do ???? Is it all from one bug or do I need to be sprayed again ?? I am going to put another encasement on my twin mattress and see what happens (i have no sofa or chair left and if i throw it out i have no place to sleep or sit).............I am so done with these !!!

    Hi bedbugman,
    so does that mean the bites should stop after 14 days ??? I am so confused from lack of sleep..........is it the hatched ones biting me and do they bit you then die ???

    UPDATE....
    I realized they got into my pillow (pillow in case then another pillow in case then both stuffed into another case) and all i was doing was putting the whole thing in the dryer for a hour DUH..........and for the life of me I dont know why I did that........anyways I threw it in the garbage and bought a new one and I double wrapped my mattress with 2 casings and its been 4 days now and no more bites.............but if i do get another bite i will get sprayed again but hopefully I wont need too. I will keep everything in the garbage bags and the DE down in the cracks and under the bed until I know that they are gone (60 days bite free) !!!

    UPDATE.........6 DAYS NO BITE !!! 54 MORE DAYS TO GO !!!

    DE will not eliminate BB's on it's own. In fact I've found that it really doesn't do much at all. You have to put it down do its almost not visible. If you put down too much thry will just avoid it.

    You CAN NOT eliminate BB's on your own. They are just too good at hiding in places you'll never reach with powder or Bedlam Etc.

    You need to get a good PCO. If you get a good one, they should be able to eliminate all BB' in 1 treatment, 2 at the most.

    I am getting another treatment but I didnt want to get bit again and when I put the DE down I gently swept it until you cant see it anymore and the reason my son's room got them (only the bottom bunk as I am sleeping there now) is because I never slept in my own bed after I notice I had bb and in between my first and second treatment I never washed and dried my pillow and pillow case right so they got into it (too long of a story to rewrite and lets just say common sense left me on that day). I haven't been bit since and now I know what I did wrong (still kicking myself tho).

    thank you
