    Hello,
    . I have bed bugs in my apartment, I've been using the starvation method as I live with disabled mom because she needs full time care. I haven't slept in my apt since March so I'm working from that time, I'm sure it's been at least 60+ degrees since March. My question is this, I've been to my apt twice just to pick up somethings, I have not stayed past 5 minutes or sat down do I still count from March or from last time I entered? T.I.A

    The bugs will outlast your starvation of them, but I'd be interested in hearing what you are doing.

    Dear Charmaine7,

    I believe I have also read on here that some bed bugs may / can go questing if they are hungry. Therefore, it is possible by not addressing your bed bug problem you could be spreading them to your neighbors and other units!!

    You need to confront your bed bugs and eradicate them!

    Hi,

    I have a horrible feeling this is the new name for a method from our old friends. To give them some credit it does look slicker than it has in the past but the principle its based on is still wrong.
