I am taking time to write this to enlighten folks who are or have never experienced a bed bug infestation. There is no way that I can make this a short story but I think you might be interested in something that you think could never happen to you. After all, I never imagined I would have this problem… I never even heard of them or even realized I had them at first.
Never in my life did I ever expect to have it happen to me.
I always lived in a very clean home in suburbia, always in an upscale neighborhood.
I had put some things in storage and after a year I decided it was ridiculous to keep spending $75.00 a month on stuff that I would probably never use again. So, I brought the stuff into my home with the idea of giving most of the things to charity. I left the stuff sit for about a week and began getting rid of most of these belongings.
Well, a few weeks later I noticed two very unfamiliar bugs on my ankle at about 7 am.
After confirming that these were bed bugs, I flipped out! The first mistake I made was to call a big corporate exterminator who touted “bed bug control” not extermination, but at the time I didn’t care. I wanted these things out of my home and didn’t know what to do. Unfortunately I signed some papers and after all was said and done I was out $2,000.00 and I still had bed bugs.
Naturally I called and cursed them out and it seemed whatever I said fell on deaf ears. Next, I went to Home Depot and bought every product that even intoned that their product killed bed bugs. I sprayed my entire home. By now I’m getting educated that there is more to this process than just using pesticides or “bombs”. These things are hard to kill and reproduce quickly while spreading throughout the walls, appliances and ceiling. Yes, that’s right, they don’t just live in mattresses or fabric, they can live anywhere.
It is extremely important that you vacuum your entire home on a daily basis and do lots of laundry on the hottest cycles available to you.
I did not begin to see any real positive results until after I went online and discovered Bedroom Guardian. I got my FREE Trial of the non-toxic bed bug killer, which also has a 30 day money-back guarantee. Pretty good deal but it seemed too good to be true. So I decided to try it out.
I began by putting it under my bed and under my couches like the package says as well as underneath antiques and actually all my other furniture. Just think that just a few of them can turn into hundreds in a very short time so I cannot emphasize enough that you have to be diligent. I live in South Florida where we have all types of creepy things but I grew up with them and none ever bothered me like these resilient bed bugs.
There are luxury hotels, cruise ships, and yes storage units, and on and on where infestations have occurred. It’s usually a hush, hush matter with respect to a business as you can imagine why.
Nobody is immune from the possibility of this happening to them.
Gradually with the powder they have developed I began to see positive results. It actually took me about a month to finally get a decent night’s sleep. These bugs are nocturnal so their sleeping lives are the antithesis of ours.
No human can sustain sleep deprivation for a prolonged period of time but that’s what happens because they are constantly on your mind after midnight until the sun rises. Try sleeping in a bed you think may be infected by hundreds of tiny blood-sucking critters! Yuck!
The ones I had must have been on steroids because there wasn’t an hour of the day I couldn’t find one at the onset. Sleep deprivation is torture and when it becomes self inflicted you must act.
If it were not for Bedroom Guardian I just don’t know what I would have done other than trying to sell my home and move into a brand new one, which just wasn’t a realistic remedy.
So, if you have bed bugs or travel get Bedroom Guardian and place it everywhere. Heck, take some with you when staying at a hotel. I’m talking about baggage and other types of luggage you have used after a trip too. I know you probably think that I am a bed bug paranoia freak by now but I have been scarred for life after this experience and my daughter is worse off than me now…
Well, truth be told after what I experienced I am and you would be as well. Do yourself a favor, even if you think it cannot happen to you have a couple boxes at the ready. It’s cheap, effective and non-toxic, plus they have a free trial so you can try it out.
I cannot thank Bedroom Guardian enough that they had an inexpensive and safe way do deal with this problem. I am not being compensated for this long story but I just would hate to see anyone have to go through what I did and I love to share helpful tips. The news called this spread of bed bugs an epidemic. At any rate, I hope I was able to shed some light on a growing problem that none of us are exempt from.
Everyone should have at least a box of Bedroom Guardian which hopefully you will never have to use.
Do yourself a simple favor and visit Bedroom Guardian, and if you have any questions, reach out to them; they are very accommodating as they know what you are going through. I just cannot say enough about a product that returned my life to normalcy and I’m very thankful for that!
I wish you all the best of luck in life and prosper and most importantly be happy. Thank you for taking the time to read my unfortunate encounter with the damn bed bugs.
