    I have been traveling the past few months with no perm home. I am very cautious about bbs and did my absolute best to be a preventative as possible. Everytime I checked into a new airbnb I only brought my stuff in a black tied plastic bag/zip lock bags. When I would check out, I would remove my stuff and put it in a new plastic bag to be safe. Two weeks ago I checked into a place and woke up with bites I've never had before. I did not do an inspection, but I double bagged everything that had been in that room and washed my clothes. Two weeks later in the middle of the day I'm sitting in a restaurant and I see something crawling on the table and it looks like second instar nymph! I squish it and there is blood. For all I know it came from someone in the restaurant, but what are the odds considering? I'm guessing it came from my purse and I wasn't as careful as I thought. So at this point, I'm still going to be traveling for awhile. What can I do to pre-treat/treat my car and make sure I don't bring anything back with me when I ultimately stop traveling? I will be leaving my car for a few weeks and no one will be using it but a friend who I am parking it with and will be periodically checking on it, so I can use chemicals if need be.

    Thanks!
