We had noticed some spots on our sheets and then started noticing a few bugs scurrying away in the morning to hide when we switched the light on. This scared us and we found we had bed bugs. We had never had bed bugs before so we called a pest controller who came and sprayed. We washed everything in hot water and even removed our bed head.
We thought we were done. However, they came back. Again we called the pest controller. (Cost so far around $500!). We thought we were safe. Nope, we found more bed bugs.
I searched the internet and found the bed bug barrier. We ordered some powder, puffer, mattress and base covers and the protectors that screw under the bed legs (we had to replace our originals as they were too wide). I applied the powder around our room and in the leg protectors.
The mattress and base were sealed as well. So far it’s been about two months and we haven’t seen a bed bug since. We’re keeping our bed and bedding physically distant from the wall and try to have anything touch the floor either as we know the bugs can not climb up past the measures in place and therefore will just die out because they can’t get out of the protectors and they can’t get up the bed legs either.
We feel much safer now and very happy with our purchases. Once again awesome products, and we feel comfortable in our bed again.
