    Hi everyone , I manage an elderly building in Boston. My tenants have found bed bugs, and we had exterminator came in and treat, however it appeared to be very ineffective, because the tenants did not prep their units at all. They are not capable of doing the preparation. We used a company to prep an unit, but the cost is too much. I need help to find out what my options are, or what alternative I can have.

    Also, one of the tenant's cat carries bed bug, what can we do about that? I found this today, right after the exterminator did the treatment, I pat the cat, and couple live bed bug jump out of the cat's hair..

    Thanks

    cost to prep the ONE unit was $2000,

    4 hours to prep for 1st treament,
    $1000 for laundry, charge by weight.
    2 hours to put stuff back,
    another 2 hours to prep for 2nd treatment,
    then finally 4 hours to put everyback.

    Bed bugs don't "jump" -- are you sure the cat did not have fleas (which do jump)?

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