      @charlee: I live in an apt which is an old house broken down into 4 apartments. My husband, myself and our dog have lived here 15 months. When we moved in our neighbors told us they have a bedbug infestation then went on to explain how the landlord treated 2 of the apartments professionally but not the other 2 and so the bugs that survived the treatment just moved over to the other 2 apartments so now they have bedbugs. This worried me so i payed close attention and here i now am 15 months later and we have an infestation. Well, my landlord had the pro’s come out and they checked our bldg and sure enough our apt as well as the other apt have infestations. So i was upset with my landlord and accused her of being “cheap” and not having all 4 apt’s treated at the same time causing the ongoing problem. My landlord claims that the pro’s told her that its not necessary to do the 2 apartments that show no signs that they will use a “protective barrier” around all the trim so that they the surviving bugs cannot relocate to an apt that hasnt been treated. This surprises me because all of the evidence shows that my belief makes more sense. I have no choice but to believe her, can anybody tell me what the actual truth is: should all 4 apt’s be treated or just the 2 that show signs?

    A neighbor actually threw an open mattress out of his house and on to the sidewalk where everyone walks. No one knew exactly why until my sister started noticing bites on he ankles. we thought it was just a rash so we brushed it off and bought her cream for itching. A month down the road my 2 year old daughter started getting bit severely. I took her to the doctor and he asked is there a chance we may have bed bugs and I said ” What???”. The granddaughter of my neighbor who is very close friends with my sister and comes over daily is the one who brought it in my home! Its been almost 3 months now and I’m at my wits end. I don’t know if I can afford someone to come out and spray for me because I heard its really expensive.

It’s every where in myy home it limits them from getting into my belongings, but I have to live with the dust, the sneezing and the pups shed hair a lot. but we are not being eaten. I bomb every time I see anything or every 3 days or so around my bed.

      @Saunter: My landlord is Finally hiring professionals to come into my apt (an old house broken down into 4 apt’s) to have it treated for bedbugs. The professionals are busy and cannot come do it until next week so meanwhile my husband and i go to bed every night with anxiety and we both jump around often as we r trying to fall to sleep because we are imagining we are getting bitten. We also have a puppy and she has bite marks as well. My landlord suggested we use Diacomacious Earth (?) meanwhile, until the pro’s come next week. Do u know if its safe for pets?
