    I just got off the phone with my landlord--PCO found bed bugs in 3 of 6 townhouses in our row, including mine. He will begin treating Thursday morning. Landlord has no idea what kind of treatment, but says I need to do cleaning prep with all clothes, bedding, etc. and take all furniture a foot away from the walls. He will be treating this Thursday, again in 2 weeks, and again 2 weeks after that.

    I have a call in with him so I can hear about the treatment plan myself (someone should know what he's doing). I'm planning to ask how he intends to prevent them from going into the 3 non-infested houses and then later reinfesting me.

    A neighbor also dumped brand new suitcases into a dumpster unbagged before all of this started, so...I'm going to ask him if they could be living in there to reinfest us, too. (Any thoughts on this board about that possibility?)

    What other questions should I be asking him?

    Thank you!

    I wouldn't be concerned about the items in the trash unless you're hanging out in there with Oscar on a regular basis.
    A good PCO should be able to answer just about anything that causes you concern.
