    hello all
    We had been hit with bed bug problem once and it was like hell . We had a baby and got the heat treatment done . Besides the humongous cost associated with the treatment the whole procedure was extremly strenuous for us and the baby . Now after almost 8 months the bugs have returned . At first I refused to believe , but later had to after I saw evidences . We used green friendly chemicals such as dichotomous earth , eco raider etc . But they still persist . I am depressed with this and the idea of going through the pain again is giving me sleepless nights . My baby got few bites and it really makes me cry seeing her situation. I am unable to understand what can be done . We live in a rental property.

    We had faced a similar situation, and we had to change house because of that ! But you have to be sure that all your things are completely safe from bed bugs, and not a single bug travels to the new home with your belongings ! It’s a complete headache I feel so sorry for your innocent baby. I have noticed one thing, and even heard this from my friends, that bed bugs bite only certain people, and completely untouch some persons ! I don’t know the reason behind it, but all said, this is definitely a difficult time for you and your family ! Hope this ordeal ends soon

    Eucalyptus oil worked wonders when we faced this problem....Remove tiny bugs with tweezers,,,,put them in a bowl of water, and flush them down the toilet.
    Then spray with unadulterated Eucalyptus oil....

    O..I feel so bad for the baby. I hope bugs leave poor baby but babies have delicate skin so they might be more attracted.
    Are you in apartments? Can you complain to the leasing office and move to hotel for some days or just move out to diffrent place? Also, try to move to upper levels, if you living in rainy places.

    Please clean or discard stuff that can not be cleaned.

    Thanks a lot for the reply. Yes we are in rental apartment and in case of bed bugs it’s sole responsibility of the tenants to pay for everything.
