    LOL My thoughts exactly. I see someone trying to sell their own services by presenting what may be a bogus infomercial type success story about how great these mysterious people who they paid were but are probably one in the same. Or in cahoots.

    If you decide to go along with this and contact the person at that email please be careful. I smell something strange. Hopefully not but quite possible. Wherever there is suffering there is usually exploitation.

    Mature women? Like these?

    SCENE I. A cavern. In the middle, a boiling cauldron.

    Thunder. Enter the three Witches
    First Witch
    Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.

    Second Witch
    Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined.

    Third Witch
    Harpier cries 'Tis time, 'tis time.

    First Witch
    Round about the cauldron go;
    In the poison'd entrails throw.
    Toad, that under cold stone
    Days and nights has thirty-one
    Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
    Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

    ALL
    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

    Second Witch
    Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the cauldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
    Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

    ALL
    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

    Third Witch
    Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
    Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
    Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
    Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
    Liver of blaspheming Jew,
    Gall of goat, and slips of yew
    Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,
    Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,
    Finger of birth-strangled babe
    Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
    Make the gruel thick and slab:
    Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
    For the ingredients of our cauldron.

    ALL
    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

    Second Witch
    Cool it with a baboon's blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good.

    Enter HECATE to the other three Witches

    HECATE
    O well done! I commend your pains;
    And every one shall share i' the gains;
    And now about the cauldron sing,
    Live elves and fairies in a ring,
    Enchanting all that you put in.

    Music and a song: 'Black spirits,' & c

    HECATE retires

    Second Witch
    By the pricking of my thumbs,
    Something wicked this way comes.
    Open, locks,
    Whoever knocks!

    Enter MACBETH

    MACBETH
    How now, you secret, black, and midnight hags!
    What is't you do?

    ALL
    A deed without a name.

    MACBETH
    I conjure you, by that which you profess,
    Howe'er you come to know it, answer me:
    Though you untie the winds and let them fight
    Against the churches; though the yesty waves
    Confound and swallow navigation up;
    Though bladed corn be lodged and trees blown down;
    Though castles topple on their warders' heads;
    Though palaces and pyramids do slope
    Their heads to their foundations; though the treasure
    Of nature's germens tumble all together,
    Even till destruction sicken; answer me
    To what I ask you.

    First Witch
    Speak.

    Second Witch
    Demand.

    Third Witch
    We'll answer.

    First Witch
    Say, if thou'dst rather hear it from our mouths,
    Or from our masters?

    MACBETH
    Call 'em; let me see 'em.

    First Witch
    Pour in sow's blood, that hath eaten
    Her nine farrow; grease that's sweaten
    From the murderer's gibbet throw
    Into the flame.

    ALL
    Come, high or low;
    Thyself and office deftly show!

    Thunder. First Apparition: an armed Head

    MACBETH
    Tell me, thou unknown power,--

    First Witch
    He knows thy thought:
    Hear his speech, but say thou nought.

    First Apparition
    Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! beware Macduff;
    Beware the thane of Fife. Dismiss me. Enough.

    Descends

    MACBETH
    Whate'er thou art, for thy good caution, thanks;
    Thou hast harp'd my fear aright: but one
    word more,--

    First Witch
    He will not be commanded: here's another,
    More potent than the first.

    Thunder. Second Apparition: A bloody Child

    Second Apparition
    Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth!

    MACBETH
    Had I three ears, I'ld hear thee.

    Second Apparition
    Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn
    The power of man, for none of woman born
    Shall harm Macbeth.

    Descends

    MACBETH
    Then live, Macduff: what need I fear of thee?
    But yet I'll make assurance double sure,
    And take a bond of fate: thou shalt not live;
    That I may tell pale-hearted fear it lies,
    And sleep in spite of thunder.

    Thunder. Third Apparition: a Child crowned, with a tree in his hand

    What is this
    That rises like the issue of a king,
    And wears upon his baby-brow the round
    And top of sovereignty?

    ALL
    Listen, but speak not to't.

    Third Apparition
    Be lion-mettled, proud; and take no care
    Who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are:
    Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until
    Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill
    Shall come against him.

    Descends

    MACBETH
    That will never be
    Who can impress the forest, bid the tree
    Unfix his earth-bound root? Sweet bodements! good!
    Rebellion's head, rise never till the wood
    Of Birnam rise, and our high-placed Macbeth
    Shall live the lease of nature, pay his breath
    To time and mortal custom. Yet my heart
    Throbs to know one thing: tell me, if your art
    Can tell so much: shall Banquo's issue ever
    Reign in this kingdom?

    ALL
    Seek to know no more.

    MACBETH
    I will be satisfied: deny me this,
    And an eternal curse fall on you! Let me know.
    Why sinks that cauldron? and what noise is this?

    Hautboys

    First Witch
    Show!

    Second Witch
    Show!

    Third Witch
    Show!

    ALL
    Show his eyes, and grieve his heart;
    Come like shadows, so depart!

    A show of Eight Kings, the last with a glass in his hand; GHOST OF BANQUO following

    MACBETH
    Thou art too like the spirit of Banquo: down!
    Thy crown does sear mine eye-balls. And thy hair,
    Thou other gold-bound brow, is like the first.
    A third is like the former. Filthy hags!
    Why do you show me this? A fourth! Start, eyes!
    What, will the line stretch out to the crack of doom?
    Another yet! A seventh! I'll see no more:
    And yet the eighth appears, who bears a glass
    Which shows me many more; and some I see
    That two-fold balls and treble scepters carry:
    Horrible sight! Now, I see, 'tis true;
    For the blood-bolter'd Banquo smiles upon me,
    And points at them for his.

    Apparitions vanish

    What, is this so?

    First Witch
    Ay, sir, all this is so: but why
    Stands Macbeth thus amazedly?
    Come, sisters, cheer we up his sprites,
    And show the best of our delights:
    I'll charm the air to give a sound,
    While you perform your antic round:
    That this great king may kindly say,
    Our duties did his welcome pay.

    Music. The witches dance and then vanish, with HECATE

    MACBETH
    Where are they? Gone? Let this pernicious hour
    Stand aye accursed in the calendar!
    Come in, without there!

    Enter LENNOX

    LENNOX
    What's your grace's will?

    MACBETH
    Saw you the weird sisters?

    LENNOX
    No, my lord.

    MACBETH
    Came they not by you?

    LENNOX
    No, indeed, my lord.

    MACBETH
    Infected be the air whereon they ride;
    And damn'd all those that trust them! I did hear
    The galloping of horse: who was't came by?

    LENNOX
    'Tis two or three, my lord, that bring you word
    Macduff is fled to England.

    MACBETH
    Fled to England!

    LENNOX
    Ay, my good lord.

    MACBETH
    Time, thou anticipatest my dread exploits:
    The flighty purpose never is o'ertook
    Unless the deed go with it; from this moment
    The very firstlings of my heart shall be
    The firstlings of my hand. And even now,
    To crown my thoughts with acts, be it thought and done:
    The castle of Macduff I will surprise;
    Seize upon Fife; give to the edge o' the sword
    His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls
    That trace him in his line. No boasting like a fool;
    This deed I'll do before this purpose cool.
    But no more sights!--Where are these gentlemen?
    Come, bring me where they are.

    Exeunt

    Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night...
    - Psalms 91:5-7

    I suppose the immature response to their SPAM here would be to SPAM their email ....

    Sorry to burst your bubble but, my post is not an advertisement. I simply explained what me and my boyfriend went through and what we did to get rid of the bugs. If you've had them, you know that it is a nightmare, to say the least.

    I have not posted on any other site, and the ONLY reason I posted on this site is because someone at work mentioned it. Neither me nor my boyfriend sell anything. I’m 20 and actually work for BC Hydro. My boyfriend is employed at UBC. We’re not in the bug business. Regardless, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t tell others what worked for us. The last two people who helped us were very nice, and very helpful. Is it a crime to promote them in someway, to show our appreciation? Do you have a problem with that?

    It’s sad when a person tries to help another, with no strings attached....but just for the sake of helping. Then a jerk comes along and tries to make it ugly for everyone else, just because he’s sick, himself. Only someone with a pessimistic mind would think of turnign a good thing into something as cunning and depressing as what you’re suggesting.

    By the way, I tried to repair the email address in my post. That’s why there are two posts back to back.... Now, I need to try to figure out why it shows as two postings.

    Maybe instead of knocking a person down, you might want to try helping. If I haven’t already figured out how to repair the post, don't hesitate to share your knowledge. You seem to be one of those who has an answer for everything, and professes to know it all.

    I'll keep the email just encase I encounter a bed bug problem in my home.

    Do they rub you down with lamp oil?

    If I ever get them at home I am calling KQ, I even have a secret stash of Millano's to sooth his furrowed brow at the end of the process.

    So what did I miss? Something has obviously been deleted.

    I hate it when I come here and someone says they have a solution, but whatever they said is gone. Yah, sure, probably spam, but at this point I would take a cure from a spammer if they had one.

    The rest of you got some cure-all you haven't told us about? Please do share. Inquiring and devastated minds want to know.

    If it worked it would not be spam.

    Bedbug sufferers should never be seen as an easy sell for get rich schemes. You tend to get them bounced around but the reality is that its not a one sized fits all problem. You need to know what to do in a single bedbug getting home versus a home with hundreds or thousands of them.

    Most of these miracle cures are little more than snake oil marketed well like the fairy tales of the brothers grim.

    If there were a miracle cure I would certainly find work a lot easier.

    Darn, I missed it too. This wasn't the couple who are touting some type of orange oil, is it? They were on here a couple of months ago with their cruise ship story. Then they plastered all the cruise ship boards with their magic oil story.

    Hi so unsettling,

    I know it's frustrating to come here and find something deleted.

    The five identical posts which used to be posted above (!) were quarantined for the time being.

    They promoted a group of mature ladies who will use essential oils to eliminate bed bugs -- in ONE day! They were touted as a miracle solution, and other forms of bed bug treatment were said to not work.

    Firms are not allowed to advertise in forum threads. (Even though this message purported to come from a customer, lots of firms use that tactic too.)

    And even getting beyond that, the message set off a lot of alarms for many of us because of the kind of solution it was promoting. While you may be interested in reading about any miracle cure going, I also have to be concerned about newcomers who may not be as savvy about bed bugs and may not be able to weigh the best options.

    I am dialoguing with the author right now about some of these issues, and it is possible I will reinstate the post with the email deleted, and perhaps some other information about the mysterious ladies in question. However, the fact remains that the information does not seem sound at all.

    Finally, when single posts are sent to spam, they disappear and you'd never know they were here. When people jump in and respond, it's hard to delete those messages, especially when people seem to be having such fun with the conversation, as perplexing as those responses may seem to others who did not see the original post. I welcome input on whether these should always be deleted, or not.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    I understand why you would delete it and respect your judgment in deciding to do so.

    I think there is no point in leaving this stuff here, if the original post is determined to be spam, and those who open it after the deletion can't understand the thread. It just made me curious; that's all. I know there is no miracle cure, but had no idea why Shakespeare was on the scene. Cheers:)

    I think so, they do seem to have bad luck, if I were them I would start inspecting locations or at least try a different type of holiday.

    Otherwise I suspect the cruise line people will be offering them scuba lessons with concrete boots.
