At least 6 bed bugs found in apartment in August 2010. Multiple bites, over the coarse of three weeks. Severe action taken, including Diotamceous Earth spread EVERYWHERE, 97% Isopropyl Alcohol sprayed, steaming of carpets, spraying of insecticide, hot-drying all fabrics/clothing for 40+ minutes: Finally no bed bugs for 1 whole year.
However, at least one bed bug has bitten twice in the same apartment in August 2011, a full year later. Perhaps the bugs are travelling from another infested a
partment in the building only during the peak summer heat (August both years). Bites resulting in painful, itchy, swollen, hard, hot markings.
