Lol, I bet 99% of apartment infestations are due to used furniture. I have no way to know, but that's where I'd bet my money.

S&F even though reading about it is making me itch all over.

There is a massive chronic outbreak where I live and because they are becoming reisistant to the chemicals used, they have begun to treat places with the 'cooking' method. This method works the best and I'm just happy that there is now a better option than chemicals. The cost of treating your apartment however is costly running anywhere from $1200.00 - $1700.00, but it kills every one of them and the eggs.

It is truly terrifying thinking that you can take one of these home without knowing, as they inconspicuously hitchhike and begin their take over. Give me a scorpion to play with any day instead.

Like I said, I had them in my suite and didn't even know...until the infestation was so bad and they started crawling everywhere.

itch itch. scratch scratch. Thinking I'll have nightmares tonight.

This is what happens when we wash everything in cold water--all you get are clean bugs. No thanks to laundry detergent that works in all temperatures or people trying to conserve energy by not using hot water.

I remember when Cheer came out. It was advertised as "All TemperaCHEER". Before that, you could only wash certain things in cold water because the detergent didn't work.

and thanks for the kudos. ....What grinds me is that international trade and travel are the reason bedbugs are back - but yet again, the poor are being blamed for causing bedbug outbreaks...
