i understand your frustration. put double sided tape on the the four corneers of your bed posts. they will stick to it and prevent them from crawling into bed with you. i did this and it worked. i also like you bombed my house but with 20 cans of the bed bug formula. i no longer have any issues. if that dont work i hate to say it have someone bring you some new clothes and set them away from your house and walk away naked after a shower leaving evrything there that u own and start over. it would be better than bein tortured by them bastards.
WE burnt all our furniture n bought cots.... they are covered in petroleum jelly! put our blankets and pillows in a drier ever night! and keep all our clothes bagged up! I am 100% disabled, n we don't know where to go even if we leave it behind! Frikkin crazy...PTSD has kicked in overdrive! Thanks for the info.

"I had Hem", you're insane, and must have more time, then sense, lol! To hell with all THAT, "Help" is absolutely RIGHT, the ONLY way to get rid of those bloodsuckers IS HEAT! The eggs, juveniles, and adults CANNOT live over 120 degrees, and that's just what one has to do. It IS costly, but the only effective way. The exterminator will run hoses, similar to dryer vents throughout your house, and they basically cook your house from the inside out. They heat it to over 120 degrees, and it kills them ALL. One can try to spray themselves, etc., but it's not going to work. For one thing, even when an exterminator sprays, it must be done in stages, once for the eggs, then juveniles, then adults, it's like 3, or 4 treatments over a period of weeks. It may cost more, but it's easier, and more effective, to opt for the heat treatment. We, in the US, didn't have this problem 20 years ago, they were almost nonexistence, we cann ALL thank those border-hopping, piece of shit MEXICANS for this plague, say what you will, but it's the TRUTH! Goddamn greasers...., well, them, AND the Guru fucks from India!! They're the reason why!!

Also too, in regards to people getting sick from the bites? It's impossible, they carry no diseases, or anything, you can't catch anything, but a nasty looking red spot, so you maladies are all in your imagination...

We live in an apartment complex. My 14 year old child is being eat up by them. Took him to pediatrician, emergency room, and derm specialist. All said didnt know and kept putting him on steroids, then one day I awoke with the same bites. I was furious, I am 100% disabled and my landlords would do nothing when we found out we had bedbugs. I bought a steamer, and burnt every piece of furniture we have spent our lives obtaining. Bought a steamer from Wal-Mart and mixed 91% alcohol and lavender and spent 7 days steaming every inch of our 2 bedroom apt home. Bought 7 cans of the Raid spray for bedbugs and their eggs from Wal-Mart and 6 foggers specially for bed bugs. I was exhausted! We rubbed petroleum jelly around every light socket, light switch, the 2 new cots we bought to sleep on, and around all base boards. We washed and dried 40 loads of laundry and bagged them. We dry our blankets ans sheets daily, and only had 4 days of no bites. My son is now very sick and no one will assist! I have called every environmental, human resource, and health department agency I can find. There is no help. I have PTSD and we have nowhere to move to and I have lost so much weight due to the stress that I am in a size 1. We use dryer sheets under our cots, we are living a nightmare with no way out! Don't know what to do or where to go! and I have OCD, and live extremely clean. My sons school has several families with similar conditions. So if I am getting rid of them, he can be bringing them in from school! I beg Jesus daily to help us!!!!
We got evicted over this mess! unbelievable!!!!! no where to go!

Actually you didnt get sick from the bites. You probably got sick from the bites getting infected.

i may be insane to some but im bug free going on two years and i did not pay for heat treatment that will not work unless you live in a single home or they heat treat a whole apartment complex so you "ever righteous" either know nothing or work for a heat treatment company... or worse.. the exterminator.

my brother spent 1200 total on exterminator fees and still had them because the bugs are becoming more resistant to the sprays they use.

i spent almost two hundred on sprays specifically for the bugs that just scattered them around and made my infestation bigger.

like it or not the malathion worked and i didnt have to give a good portion my money to people who are trying to make an over the top profit off someone elses pain. my methods may not be for everyone but they worked for me..... do your own research and you will find that the govt has used malathion in base housing for decades and over seas to combat malaria. a few other countries have zero bed bugs almost because their govt allows the sale of chemicals like propoxur and malathion for indoor use.

and as for your comment about the Mexicans..... you are obviously stupid and a racist s.o.b. and since the bugs are actually coming down from the north where they have been battling infestations like these for decades so how would it even make sense that they are coming over with illegal immigrants.... actually the bugs are even less common there than they were here a few years ago.

the reason we are having this outbreak of bugs is because they are becoming increasingly resistant to the sprays commonly used by companies to combat them.

not every one has the option to throw a couple good sized exterminator bills on their credit card. yes its easier for someone else to come do the work but that is not always an option.

now for spraying the house. we got a bottle of malathion for ten dollars from hardin milling. this stuff is strait toxic and will make your house reek for a couple days but it works, and may possibly be one of the ony things that work. half the reason why the bugs are getting so bad is because they are becoming resistant to the pesticides normally used to kill them, in fact most indoor pesticides dont work even though they are labeled for bedbugs.... if you call orkin, hye want to charge a couple hundred every time they come, and they only spray things with permetherin. the entomology dept at u.k. just did a study on bedbugs that can easily be found online... it said that almost half the bed bug population is permetherin resistant. so yes, malathion is an outdoor pesticide and yes it does stink, and yes if you stay in the room with it long enough before it dries it will send you into couching fits...but it kills them and has a residual of about three months that keeps killing them... which is really important because they can go forever in hiding.
the bottle says to put like one or two cap fulls per gallon of water to mix but i used it a little stronger and put about an ounce per gallon.
we sprayed our bedroom first and then sealed it off and slept in the living room for two days. we pulled up the mattress and box spring and misted both, we sprayed the head and foot boards and rails and sprayed the backs and bottoms of everything also. we pulled out our dresser drawers and sprayed them down and the insides of the hollow dressers, we coated the carpet pretty good also and sprayed a perimater from top to bottom on the walls....to the point that it was dripping from the ceiling :) and then we opened all the windows and stuck a towel under the door and we didn't go back in there for two days.
then we sprayed the rest of the house taking extra care to coat the couches and chairs and drapes and carpet.... and we also sprayed a thick line on the carpets between each room... i even took a paper towel soaked and rung out with malathion and wiped down our tv cords and other electronics. we basically just lived in the bedroom for a couple days till it aired out and lived off of junk food....we didn't want to really be sitting in malathion all the time so we put some covers on the couches and put a thick blanket under the sheets on the bed.
we also used light covered bedding so that it was easier for us to see the bugs and the stains they leave.
after the first time we sprayed and put down d.e. we went from catching five or six per day to catching five or six the first week and then a couple the next week and then a couple two weeks later. after a month i sprayed again and put down fresh d.e. i caught one lone bug about a week after i sprayed that time. two more months i sprayed again but i have never seen another live bug since and i stopped finding dead bugs in the vaccum maybe four months out. that was two years ago and i have not gotten them back.... we finally replaced the mattress and furniture last year and sprayed it all before it came in the house ( i should note... resist the urge to throw all your stuff out and get new right away... they will just infest that too.... instead wait till they have been gone awhile and pre-treat things before you bring them in.... what ever you do get rid of... please be courteous and either burn it or mark it before tossing in a dumpster.) i wouldnt wish these bugs on my worst enemy..... anything that gets stained badly you will prolly want to just throw away but for all other linens, they can be treated by throwing them in the dryer on high for thirty minutes.
really hope this helps and if you have any questions i will be happy to answer.
Thank you for that info. we have done this n seen no bugs or had no bites, however, our Orkin man has told us they live in out tv's, cell phones, computers, ect... any ideas on them? Once again thank you for your info n time!
