I work for a home health company and the house I work at has bed bugs for 2 months now I have been bitten and eaten alive by these things when I go in there. I have told me supervisor many times and was told we had to catch a bug for anything to be done. We finally caught one a week ago, it was confirmed it was a bed bug. And there was supposibly a exterminator that came in and said he couldn't find any more bugs. That there must have been just one single bed bug in the house. So now even tho all the staff have bites all over them as well as the clients, nothing is being done. It is unbearable and I'm afraid I'm going to bring these bugs home. Who can I talk to to get something done? Would I contact the health department or who? I'm on the verge of just quitting bc I can't take it anymore. I can't sleep due to itching un controllably.

Contact the health department and OSHA tell them that ur employer is denying u a safe and clean work place and u have let ur supervisor know about the problem what he has done and what action was taken OSHA will take care of the problem asap

You probably have already have spread those bed bugs if what you say is true. They are in your home and car as well.

There are industrial strength insecticides that will kill them within a week and keep killing as they hatch, with just two applications from a garden sprayer. A pint is less than $40 and will do a moderate home several times over. Do read the precautions.

Look into "Suspend SC" Insecticide. It's illegal in some states and in others it requires a licensed applicator. I just use it myself and ave not grown a third eye in my forehead or anything, yet. But I read and head the instructions.
