    Default Bed Bugs!!!

    Sigh...how do you get rid of the little beasts? I have an appointment with two exterminators for estimates, but everyone is telling me that it ain't cheap.

    They've been driving me crazy...they either came from my mother's house from when she or my brother came to visit, or my neighbor. I've used sprays, foggers, oils. They'll go away for a couple of days, but last night - the agony!!! I may give my bedroom a deep cleaning this weekend and try one last resort with this stuff called Diatomaceous Earth. If that fails, then I'll reschedule the exterminator appointments. I mean, I just spent a grand on getting rid of squirrels.

    Thoughts?

    The mattress and the carpet in your bedroom have to be thrown out. Sorry, but I'm hearing this is a big problem in Colorado and everything I read says you just have to bite the bullet and throw everything away, even with professional extermination. Wash all of your clothes in hot water even though it may damage some of them.

    OMG! burn it all! you have to use a lot of heat. i saw something that said you can put things in a black garbage back and then let it roast in the sun - not sure if that works or not.

    I read that if has to be 155 degrees to kill them. I have heard of people buying a professional steamer, and then you have to steam every nook and crany. And do it like every 2-3 days.

    It seems to have become an epidemic.

    I practically saturated my mattress with that Hot Shot crap. It lasted for three days. Last night they woke me up - tearing up my feet and shoulders! Ewwww!

    Philadelphia, like most major US cities, is experiencing a surfeit of the little beasts...

    I had this problem a few years ago when my daughter stayed at a hotel and brought them home.

    I used Diatomaceous Earth (not the pool grade) I got it off Amazon. I sprinkled it on my mattress then sealed my mattress in the plastic zip up. I then got 4 plastic containers, filled each with the DE and put each bed foot (my bed had the wheels) in it so they couldn't spread elsewhere.

    The chemicals might kill the bugs but won't kill the eggs. Time for a new mattress. Sorry.

    I've got two different exterminator companies, Terminix and a local company coming over Saturday for free estimates...maybe I'll sleep on the couch tonight. I picked up some organic stuff at Target after visiting Mom...I've saturated my bed with it...temporary of course, but I've got to make it to Saturday.

    Let's see, what's the exterminator going to recommend:
    A) pay him to fumigate the mattress, fail, and then several futile return visits (at extra cost natch) plus bonus noxious fumes while you sleep.
    B) don't pay him a cent and spend your $$$ at the local Bed Barn.
