"[Bedbugs] are hard to get rid of because they can go over 100 days without a meal..."

i thought it was like a YEAR they couldn't live without food

this is kindof gross but did i tell you about the time i was terrified i had bedbugs and then was so relieved when i realized it was only head lice? yeah. bedbugs are so awful they make LICE seem like a blessing.

Isn't it nice that you don't have leeches? You must count your blessings. It is true: leeches are not indigenous to the greater NYC area.

And there are a host of other unsavory things that are also nice not to have but I think I will stop there.

As for the bedbugs–don't let them bite. Nighty night.

Ugh, that's the worst. I woke up one morning with a bunch of red marks on my side and back. Turns out that I had centipedes snacking on me in the middle of the night.

I don't know if this will do anything for bed bugs, but I vacuumed my mattress and of course sprayed Raid in every single corner of the room. I haven't been assaulted by an arthropod since.

I hope you can get rid of them! I like your blog.

How is your fight against the bedbugs doing?

If you want to have some a perverse way, buy a bottle of Kleen-Free at and use it when you see a bedbug. It works as a contact killer so if you spray it on the little bugger it basically eats away at its skeleton and it dies.

Even if you od nto get them all with it, it is nice to be able to watch them die after the pain they put you through.
