I was unfortunate enough to get bed bugs in my apartment when I accepted the offer of a second hand bed frame from my furniture removalist. As it was timber, I had no idea that bed bugs could live in the joints and crevices and live up to 18 months without a feed. When I finally discovered what I was being bitten by, I was horrified. I got rid of the bed frame and mattress and slept in the other room, but needless to say, weeks of sleepless nights and paranoia ensued. Even if my long hair tickled my skin, I would wake up and start searching the whole bed!
Getting the place fumigated with pesticides was not an option for me as I suffer from Sjogrens , a debilitating auto immune disease, the main symptoms of which are chronic dry eyes and mouth and hypersensitivity towards all chemicals, fragrances and cigarette smoke.
After some research on the Internet, I came across Tony . I rang him for advice, and he was fantastic. I ordered the powder, applicator,mattress protectors and tape to put around the legs of the timber frame. He even told me that I did not need to buy the mattress protectors for my other king size bed as it was made if 100% latex and the bugs cannot live in latex. This showed me his integrity and honesty. I have had no recurrence of bed bugs.
Problem solved. Thanks Tony.
