So our daughter went off to college and brought us home a present–bed bugs!
This was the worst–at first we didn’t understand why we were getting itchy bites.
Eventually, with some research and inspection, we figured it out
We tried to treat it ourselves–powders, sprays, encasements, and more–all to no avail.
We also threw out all the bedding and even the beds.
We were losing sleep and patience–big time.
We finally hired a serious exterminator who brought in these huge heaters and blasted our place for about 6 hours at something like 140 degrees.
That should kill those and any other buggers bothering us.
When I got home–it was an oven and I couldn’t even change my clothes because the workers were still here at it.
I spent 5 hours cleaning up afterwards in the boiling house and even with all the windows open, it was like an oven and impossible to sleep last night–tossing and turning.
It was hell, but hopefully it’s over–may I never see another vermin like this again. 😉
