    I spoken with him today and drew out the names of the chemicals he will be using.

    He will be spraying transport.
    He will be using Dione dust.

    He plans on using the transport on my mattress set an then encasing them.

    Then he comes back in 10 days. Swears this is successful.

    What will this do? How will the bugs react?

    Here's a page about Transport: http://www.pestmanagementsupply.com/fmc_transport_mikron.html I'm guessing that what your exterminator called "Dione" is actually Drione: http://www.allpest.com/labels/drione-msds.pdf

    Whether it will work depends on a bunch of stuff. If you're getting re-infested from the apartment above, where the tenant has a hollow headboard and doesn't react to bites, so has a heavy infestation with no visible evidence, then nothing will work until they get treated. At the other extreme, you may have a light infestation picked up from a one-time exposure while traveling, and get rid of them on the first treatment for all I know. I don't know anything about how the bugs will react. I'll leave that one for the experts.

    I think it's coming from next door. They treated me and the guy accross the hall.

    I couldn't move my furniture out so they treated around it. He's meeting my landlord on Friday and will retreat when they move things around. That's when my mattress & box springs will be encased too.

    The guy accross the hall was covered in mosquito bites. More than me.

    It's crucial (again, I'm not an expert, but this seems pretty clear from what the experts have said) to make sure other apartments get checked too, and treated as necessary. Not everyone gets red itchy welts when they get bitten, so it's possible for another neighbor to have them too and not know it.

    They treated me and the guy across the hall.

    But he's coming back on Friday to treat when my landlord is in town and they can move everything around. My feeling is that they just spread the infestation around. I totally am considering vikaning my stuff and leaving by the end of the month.
