Is there anywhere in town that doesnt have them?? Why are they so bad? Why cant they be killed just by bombing or spraying?? I'm looking for an apartment but everytime I mention a place people say the building is infested!! I am scared to death of getting them. I'm a clean person, keep my place nice..but I heard that doesnt matter..that they can come through the walls. Is this true??
yes

Its true they come through walls from schools from restaurants u name it. No spray does not kill them or bombing. Heat kills them. Very hot water and dryer for anything that can be washed. Steam for furniture. 1 out of 5 American houses have them now. Each year that goes up. Vampires are what they are lol feeding times are between 3am to 5am while their prey sleeps. No known pathegins are carried by these bloodsuckers as of yet. Just leave red itchy welts like a flea bite. Move to the country would be my advice.

Rubbing alcohol kills them put it in a spray bottle and spray them or around places the bugs hide.and they don't feed between three and five if ur laying down they ll come out day or night.or tub and tile cleaner with bleach kills them to,they will swim in straight bleach though.I never seen bed bugs till all the mexicans moved back to c'ville.riley childrens hospital even had them for a while any one can get them and their almost impossible to get rid of.the eggs can lay dorment for a year before they hatch,so if u get them,good luck getting rid of them.burn your furniture.

Try Raid MAX...Wal-Mart might have some. Amazon.com sells it for $ 8.00 a can. I have used it. PARALYZES their asses ON CONTACT ! May take 2 or 3 cans per room. Soak your matress GOOD with this. It will not hurt humans. Remember...Raid MAX, not just Raid. Exterminators want you to THINK there is no spray so they can hit you for $ 2000 for heat treatment. You can rent heaters at Gillman's and do the same thing. Rule of thumb : 150 degrees X 2 hrs. per room or 150 degrees X 3 hours for whole house. Get your heat up FAST too. These are very HARDY little critters ! Too damned bad our " Big Brother" government outlawed Chlordane. I just happen to know someone who has 7 gallons of it. The ULTIMATE pest chemical !

I totally agree with you! How could race have anything to do with this situation? Yes, "bug man" is a dumbass and a racist! He's probably never been out of Connersville!

It is my understanding that the Bed bug strain we are dealing with originated in the Middle East.As bad as it may seem to some people the problem we have here is going to get much much worse.There have been several reports of people poisoning themselves from following poor advice and not following the labels on the products that they are using.Bed bugs are controllable but unlike most bugs they require prolonged exposure to todays chemicals.What this means is that you must apply the chemicals to the areas where they are hiding so it requires a more precise and thorough application technique.Cost is the biggest factor in dealing with Bed bugs.A thorough Bed bug treatment program will require the homeowner to do some amount of prep work like washing all clothing and bed linens. A normal plan should also require a minimum of two visits and several hours of application work and should come with some sort of guarantee. Consumer beware!!! One product I would recommend is Bedlam plus.Do not use foggers it will only make things worse.

I have a question for the pros out there. Me and my husband are thinking of buying a home sometime in the near future. Is there a test that can be done on a property that's 100% proof that you are not buying a house with bed bugs? We have thought of buying a condo where we are living now. But all this talk about bed bugs coming through the walls have me spooked to go that route.

Bedbugs are everywhere and will continue to invade. Do u send ur kids to school if so they can hitchike to ur house. Do u go to stores and buy things they could be in the things u buy. Do u go anywhere then more than likely their there waiting to hitch a ride. All u can do is take precautions to prevent an infestation from happening.

Heat is the best killer for bedbugs. Get a furniture steamer and go over all furniture. Run all fabric like clothing, drapes, bedding,pillows and rugs through a cycle of your dryer at high heat before washing. So dry, wash and dry again. Alcohol will not kill them and this is a fire hazard. In the summer you can put items that you can't dry in a plastic garbage bag and leave in the sun in a hot car for 4 hrs. this will also kill them. They can live dormant without feeding for up to a year. Good luck! Once you have them they are very hard to get rid of! I had them back in the summer and it cost me over $700.00 to have Terminix to treat one room. I am very clean and I think I got them volunteering.

Yes rubbing alcohol does kill them. I have also had them and used lots of rubbing alcohol. You can also spray your body down with the rubbing alcohol and they won't bite you.

The best way to determine if the property has Bed bugs would be with a trained canine.Steamer is a waste of time unless you move at a snails pace.Sooner or later you will have a run in with Bed bugs so educate yourself before it happens.Washing clothes in hot water and drying on high heat will kill all stages of Bed bugs,alcohol will kill if sprayed directly on them.Putting items inside a deep freezer will kill the also as will professional dry cleaning.4hours in a trash bag in a car probably wont do the job.Items that cannot be heat treated or frozen can be fumigated in a trash bag using Nuvan fumigation strips.And 700.00 for one room is robbery should have called someone honest .

Thank you for the information. Before we buy a place, I just may have to spear the expense of a trained canine. Like you say avoid them at all possible. Now where do I find one of those trained canines here in Michigan? I guess thats a question for my realtor. lol
I sure hope your wrong about me ever meeting one of these critters. But I know anyone can get them.

Should be able to do a simple internet search for canine bed bug dogs in you area.Good luck! Many people feel that because they are clean people they wont get them but this bug does not discriminate lol.I have exterminated them in homes that you could literally eat off the floor in. One of the biggest problems we are faced with is the fact that many families cannot afford to have a professional fix the problem and this is just creating breeding grounds.I am still searching for a solution for these situations myself.Their is no silver bullet for this one and none on the way.

Ok so say We find a place we love and it happens to have bed bugs, is it easy for the pros to take care of this problem before moving in. Would I have to switch out the carpets and floor boards? Will they come back? I guess what I really should ask is "Would you yourself ever buy a house where you knew it once had bed bugs? " I've looked on the internet and they say they are pretty bad in Detroit. Since we live about 45 minutes from there I'm sure they have to be a big problem here as well.
