Well first off im gonna start by saying that i have two children in the middletown school district, the day my kids went on winter break, my son brought his back pack home from school ( VAIL MIDDLE SCHOOL) i had went to hang it up and 2 bed bugs fell out of it, i immediatly threw it away and every thing in it, Two days later my son had found them in his bed. I called the middletown city school district adminstrative office and had explained to them what i had found, the lady i had talked to was very nice and seemed concerend about it and told me to call my childrens school which i did and this school seems to not care about it, they said they would call my son down and pinpoint where his locker was.. well they didnt so i called back and of course once again they didnt seem to be concerend about it, my son went to school and also got in trouble for me throwing his back pack away and the book that was inside, i was told by his teacher that we should of never done that and we are responisable for the book when i was told to throw it away, in my opinion if the school would spray for the bed bug problem this would of never happened. I have spent $1000 to have my house sprayed and now im terrified to send my children to school of fear of them bringing it back in my home, and the only thing his teacher was worried about was the price of the book.. lets put her in my shoes and all the money and time and effort to get rid of this problem, and let me assure everyone its not cheap!! If this is not gotten under control the city of middletown will be infested with these bugs, we need to get the word out that our schools are having a problem with bed bugs and let the city of middletown that something has to be done!!!

It is a bad problem everywhere. If the school had them that bad, you can bet the teachers packed them home too. I knew when school started it was going to be a worse problem. I saw a program on t.v. about it and how the bugs are a everyday occurrence in Japan and Chine. Imagine all the things people purchased over the holidays that had eggs on them. Most of the things we buy are made in China or Japan.
I was in line in a store and a woman was told she had 2 bugs on her. She had been in the children's clothing dept., a man told her they were bed bugs. She said, but I do not have bugs. If she did not she got them in the store.
The bedbug problem is far worse than most people think. It is also very hard to get rid of them. One spraying is not going to solve the problem I am sure of that.
The most effective treatment is not sold and has been banned. Poor people can not afford sprays or exterminators. I just feel it is going to get much worse. I stay home a lot and if I buy new items I launder them right out of the bag. I hope and pray I do not get them. I know someone who has been spraying for a year now and every time she quits they come back.

Typical response from a Middletown resdident. Wanting to blame the schools for her bed bug problem. Blame the teachers for everything! That is why I have moved to Monroe. If we have a problem we will take care of them ourselves and not blame others.

Saw your wall message about wearing patch due to bed bugs. I am casting for a documentary for animal planet on bed bugs. I am looking for personal bed bug stories. Would you be interested?

I second that Isis.....Middletown Resident was more than likely the one that has caused the spread of the bugs in the city. It is easier to blame others.

Wake up Middletown Resident, clean up your own mess before getting on here and blaming others!

The most typical advocated alternative when it comes to killing these bugs was to use Diatomaceous Soil due to the fact that will kill insect pests by simply dehydrating these animals.

Just one of all the site visitors proposed doing this:

Check out animal store and get Diatomaceous Earth. It can be 100 per cent safe, substance free, plus all natural. The almighty bless nature for this. Additionally, it is really low-priced. The harmful bacteria possess a oily layer and the natural powder (ditomasis earth) will definitely adhere to their bodies and thus dehydrates them all. They'll at some point run dry then die-off.

This is a problem for renters for travelers and for everyone. There is so many problems that arise from this problem and you really have to go through it to know. I found the bed bug registry but there is no registry for other pests and not a whole lot of info to help people with the problem either. I made this site and I hope people can get help there.

I am very worried about bed bugs and our federal government is doing nothing. There are chemicals that can easily kill bedbugs but the EPA will not let anyone use them. These chemicals were used years ago and that is why the bedbug problem no longer existed.(DDT, is one of the chemicals)
I blame our government....

Bedbugs have nothing to do with cleanliness.
They were brought here recently by foreigners, such as Mexicans and Middle Easterners.

I have a friend whose grandson brought bedbugs to her spotless home north of Dayton. She spents thousands getting rid of them. Chemical companies profits have gone up 400% in the last two years due to bedbugs. Someone is making big money off of this at the consumer's expense. I blame the federal government.

Once I figured out I had bedbugs I was horrified.Tried alcohol,steaming,diamaeteous earth,bedbug sprays.I was going broke and still not getting rid of all of them.Then reading up on the internet I heard of someone using Beauveria Bassianna.I used it and I am now bug free.First read up on warning.It's said if you have an immune diffeiency problem not to use it.I sprayed my bed with it and slept in it that night after it dryed and no problem.It saved my life.

Bed bugs, like lice, are usually found in clean surroundings. Lice does not like dirty hair and bed bugs do not like dirty surroundings. Get you information correct.
