    Just to let you all know that Bedbug_Undertaker is a good close friend of mine and something of a star within our organisation. She is the one we pay to sleep in infected locations.

    yes cilecto I am a bite respondent however, once I have finished hosting my bites disappear within 4 or 5 days.
    I work without freaking because I find sleeping with them teaches me a lot about their living habits and also gives me the heads up on which areas I will need to focus on for the post treatment deep clean and bed bug undertaking at the end of the job.
    Also I have the pleasure of knowing that in order to bite me the bugs have walked over the chemical and they will die because they bit me

    Is it also a behavior study; e.g. one family is sprayed blue, the other orange and another family green and do they always go back to their original nest? Or is it rather the testing of chemicals?

    Welcome! You were a bed bug celebrity already as I had heard tales of you. I think you will contribute greatly to this forum and help many.

    Hi Sparks,

    I've also heard a lot about you from David. Welcome!

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

    I have no idea how you do that. I am both horrified and mesmerized.

    I guess it's the knowledge that you can walk away anytime you want that makes it a little less freaky deaky, scary and depressing.

    Thanks Nobugsonme and DJames1921 ( heard a lot about you too )

    AshamedandScratching it's not quite that easy, once you agree to sleep with someone's infestation you have a contract to fulfill, walking away is not an option. At present I have spent 2 nights in my own bed in the last 4 weeks and 4 nights away elsewhere. I'm hosting a few rooms at a London based building in the hospitality sector. Doing back to back hosting with maybe a night off in between rooms. I have 2 to 4 more weeks of hosting in and around London, simply because it's becoming more of a demand. I may be lucky and get a few months break before the next round but then you never know when that phone rings if it's going to be a request to do undertaking or hosting.
    Have been in some heavy infestations so I do understand the psychological effect too.
    But being able to go home to a bug free bed at the end of it is always good

    I have the utmost respect for you, bb undertaker.

    Purposely sleep in an infested bed?... yikes, I'd rather marry a vegan.

    I met a lovely vegan once, but marry, I would rather work for a multi national pest control mega Corp.

    It's a tough interview to be a hoster and not all deal well with the test bites that have to be done.

    I am sure Sparks will be as valuable on the forum as she is for us and our clients. Although with celebrity or is that notoriety a NY tour might be on the cards.

    Hi Sparks!

    That's how I got rid of my bed bugs last year. I heeded the advice of David Cain, the bed bug pied piper. He's been observing and experimenting with them for a long time. He knows what works to make them disappear and what does not work.

    I read what he has to say here and on his web site, and will be getting his book to read soon, about not throwing your bed, furniture and clothes away; not scattering bed bugs all over the house with bug sprays; not trapping or encasing them; not using useless barriers to keep them away (they will find a way to feed, even in the daytime---it's a life or death situation for them).

    You, also, like the pied piper of Hamelin, lead the bed bugs to their death. You are a hero to many suffering people. I'm sure they don't mind paying the piper!
