Please tell me your stories of beating bed bugs and remind me that it is possible to eradicate this plague.

Boyfriend and I had our first pesticide treatment two weeks ago. We were still getting bitten, though the frequency and number of bites decreased a lot. I thought the tide was turning this weekend, and I went three nights in a row with no bites. Bf hasn’t had any bites for more than a week now. But this morning, I have two new bites on my back. The second treatment is scheduled for a week from today.

I’m starting to go a little crazy with worry that this problem will never get resolved. So far, we’ve spent more than $800 trying to rid our suite of these bastards - and we haven’t even had to pay for the pesticide treatments.

Moving is not an option. If we can’t get rid of them, I don’t know what we’ll do.
