    June 10th 2018 found out we had an infestation of bed bugs. Called several professionals and they were extremely expensive. I couldn't afford that much. Started to self treat with DE and ortho bed bug spray. It was working but not like I wanted to to. Of course we washed and dried clothing etc... We bought a steamer and steamed the furniture we threw out the captain's bed which was ground zero. Anyway, after about 2 weeks bugs were still in every bedroom so I decided to get tempo and cimexa. Then I kept seeing bugs on the floor of my room and discovered they were on the underside of my encased box spring. I realized when we treated with tempo I didn't spray the boxspring. I smashed all the visible bugs and sprayed tempo all over the box spring. The next afternoon I checked the bed again and found 6 dead bugs under my bed and haven't seen any since. Will continue to spray tempo every 2 weeks for a while until I feel safe. If I could go back in time I would skip all the other sprays and go straight to Tempo and cimexa. I think we'd be done with this if I had known about these products from day one.

    I am glad your plan seems to be working! I hope you’ll come back in a few weeks to update us and that it continues to work well.

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

    July 21 was the last time I saw living bugs. Found 2 dead ones Aug 6th and 7th, one each day. So it's still looking good.
