    I previously posted about a week ago about needing to locate a qualified pco to identify whether (and possibly treat) we had a bed bug infestation in Wichita, KS. We have not seen any actual bugs but have had stains on our sheets (USED--mattress and box spring are encased in Allerease/bed bug covers) and my husband and I both have had welts/hives/large pimple/bites randomly throughout the past couple of months. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Here are some images of the rust colored mark on my husband's pillow case:

    A expert may be able to ID that stain.

    As for Wichita PCOs, we may not have that many people from Kansas who have actually posted here.

    I suggest reading the FAQ about choosing a PCO and calling a number of local firms, asking the questions suggested there. You're looking for a firm with experienced and knowledgeable technicians who've done a good number of bed bug jobs.

    Also ask about the methods they're planning to use, and what kind of prep is required.

    You can share the various answers to your questions with us if you want feedback from others.

    Call at least three-- you will likely be surprised about the range of methods and also the range of prices, even for similar methods and courses of treatment.

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

    Pictures are not bed bug related.

    Dear annoyed,

    In my view this cannot be determined 100% based upon the quality of photos provided alone.

    Check your PM as I have given you the name of a reputale company that I have experience with in your area.

    Hope this helps ! paul b.
