    I have been bb free for almost 3 years. After recently (finally) getting a new mattress and finding what turned out to be a tick, my anxiety level is pretty high. I think about all the things I've done over the past year or two without second thought (buying hundreds of used children's books for my son, going to the movies and coming home without showering immediately!, etc.). I know that a lot of these things are over the top, but I'm wondering about everyday prevention after success stories.

    I am going to start saving up for a PackTite, but what about visitors, outings, etc.? I remember the Ziplock bags and stripping as soon as I got home from going anywhere. There were no visitors EVER. But what about now that I want to start living my life again? What do you do on a daily basis as prevention so that a reinfestation does not occur?
