    It's amazing to me that once I let everyone kno about our BB problem, all these people, some family, some neighbors, have started telling me they have them or had them too . I've always been upfront about this because I don't like to hold things in, makes me feel all icky inside. Anyway, my next door neighbor has them , and today I came home from work and found his couch out front by the trash, but kinda in front of my house. Now I kno it seems silly to b worried, since I myself have a BB problem, but it still creeps me out. I'm having treatment on Tuesday, and all I can picture is some of his BBs making their way to my house. I do kno this is Friday, but what if their slow BBs and can't get to my door till Wed? It sounds stupid , even to me, but I'm still worried. So, what are the chances?

    I don't know the answer to this, but I've wondered the same thing. With everyone tossing furniture and mattresses out, there has to be some outside.

    I think I read on here somewhere (don't know where) that they can travel from outside.

    I'm sure they can. They're a bug. Lots of bugs get inside homes from outside. I think that's why it's so important if we toss stuff, we need to make sure it's wrapped in plastic. You can only hope that if they try to make their way in, they drown, get stepped on or eaten by something else before they get there.

    And while they're pesticide resistant, they're kinda fragile for a bug. They harbour for a reason.
