  • I recommend fire, and lots of it. Hate those little bastards.
  • Well, that's f*cking disgusting.
  • DDT, accept no substitutes.
  • I don't even know what one looks like.  I've read they look like apple seeds, but nothing on that spoon looks like an apple seed.
  • Maricopa County

    Get sheriff Joe on it!
  • I seriously thought that said "crotch."
  • farking sanitation, how does it work?

    That pretty much does nothing to stop bed bugs. They're like lice, but worse. They don't care if you're dirty or not. Short of throwing away all your clothes, sheets, curtains, towels, washer, dryer, furniture, and tearing up all the carpet....When it comes to bed bugs on that scale, you're reduced to scorched earth or nothing. And if anyone in the apartments around you still has them, it doesn't matter because they're coming back even if you get rid of them.
  • My real question here is, How the f*ck do you afford ten couches before you can afford to leave your f*cking apartment?
  • cretinbob: farking sanitation, how does it work?


    Not at all on bedbugs is how it works.  These people do not have infestations because they lack cleanliness.  These motherfarkers can be as thin as a sheet of paper and can hide anywhere.  In electrical outlets, folds of any kind of furniture, behind paintings or pictures, in drawers or wardrobes, in shoes, behind baseboards, in thermostats...practically anywhere.

    Pest control is near farking useless as they have become more and more resistant to sprays.  About the only thing you can do is drown them, burn them or dry them out.  They are FAR worse than lice or any other pest I can think of.

    Took two years to get rid of them when we had them.  At least six visits from pest control, washing everything we owned.

    That accomplished nothing. I too got rid of couches.  Three of them.  Got rid of box springs and mattresses.

    Finally dried the bastards out by putting diatamaceous earth powder on practically everything.  That shiat is like tiny little razorblades to them.  Cuts them up and dries them out.

    Bedbugs don't eat dirt, or skin flakes, or spilled cheetos. They only crave blood. And if you live in an apartment it doesn't matter how well you look after your own suite, because they will come through the walls (via electrical outlets or water pipes) and under your door from across the hallway.

    Those bugs are out there. They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are itching like a motherfarker.
  • Gak! Those bastards are why I hate staying in hotels. I would rather sleep in my car than bring a load of those f*ckers home.
  • That is goddamn disgusting.
  • My oldest daughter dealt with them at one point. The apartment management paid to have her apt baked three time. She had to pay for it the fourth time, but the exterminator told her if she found another bedbug within a (short period of time) they would come back for free. She found live bedbugs within 36 hours of having her apt treated the next few times. She threw away so many mattresses, box springs, couches, chairs and items of clothing that I lost track.

    We/she thought that the problem was mostly under control when she moved out. By the time we got her stuff out to the trucks, half of her furniture was obviously infested.

    DE is a good idea. Works on ants as well. It's a lot cheaper to buy it at a pool supply store than from anywhere else.

    winning question!

    Friends, family, thrift stores, Craigslist, curbside.

    It's pretty under a microscope, too:

    HOW can you be so stupid? You would figure after the first .... 2 or 3 couches that you would learn to sit on metal folding chairs UNTIL the damn bugs are GONE GONE GONE

    SHUDDER
    so is there an actual solution
    other than leaving EVERYTHING that you own and starting over?

    /SO FARKING glad that I dont have this problem
    /WILL farkING KILL whoever brings this problem to my house
    /no seriously, if you have bedbugs, WHY would you come to my house?
    /stay the fark away from me until you are no longer unclean

    The thing about bedbugs - they'd just live inside the metal folding chairs.  They aren't particular to fabric - they're particular to blood.
  • The easiest way to get rid of bedbugs is to import some spiders. Oodles and oodles of farking spiders. Of course, that may present another problem when all is said and done.
