    Up until last night we had only seen one adult bed bug and hadn't been bitten much (a few times each.) I had thought they weren't biting my husband but then they bit him in the forehead after the first cleaning. When we cleaned we found a body pillow and a gifted sari under the bed with a few dead bed bugs and a handful of eggs. That all got junked and thoroughly cleaned and steamed.

    We had 1 good night. Last night was a nightmare. We had isolated the bed and everything is bagged. The blankets were washed and dried and the highest heat. But I woke up because I felt something crawling on me. There were 4 small bed bugs in the bed! Then one under the mattress!

    So today we took apart the bed amd we found them!

    I steamed them in their crevices between the frame and the slats then mu husband used ethanol to wipe up their carcasses. After it all dried we filled the cracks with DE and put the bed back together.

    Wish me luck!
