Hi ashley what brand did you buy?I'd use one of the vacuum and it definitely helps in eliminating the dust mites, and preventing bed bugs altogether.
I use once a week to clean all the mattresses of every family members.
It eliminate via the UV light on the vacuum (killing any form of bugs and mites), as well as the drumming motion of the vacuum (like the old traditional way of beating the mattress).
I bought the vacuum direct from the source country rather than the outdated and more expensively price model selling here though.
aunty p: Yes, I used a couple of cans of Ant Ban and it eradicated all the bed bugs and their eggs. Most importantly, I could sleep well because there is no smell, no oil and does not cause any stains. After I spray on my bed sheets and mattress, I can just continue lying down to have my rest.Hi mr_homez, have you fully eradicate bb problem and is there any resurface of bb after using ant ban?
Probably I will go and buy today and try it.
Have tried a few spray n didnt really work.
Hello Kimmielalala, I can understand how you feel and that happened to my family as well. It was endless sleeps for that period and finally got rid of it. Have you gotten any treatments for it yet?I'm having that problem too for the past few months every night, my 2years and 9months baby been donating blood and very irritating
Hi kimmie,I think it's from my Myanmar maid too. Previously no problem at all!
I bought mattress encasing from overseas, it works for me but the two baby still have a little bit sign of the bug I think or else it might be skin allergic? And one time I saw my baby face kept on redness, and happened walked pass the bathroom while my maid shower her. Maid mistaken KODOMO detergent as shower foam, she use to shower her face and body
So sorry to hear about your bed bug problems. I can understand how you feel and the mess you have to clear. I have a HK friend that is having the same problem as you. Her maid brought the BB from Indonesia and infested the whole house. When I told her about this Ant Ban spray, she flew all the way here to buy many cans to use it. After using it, she can see the positive results and she is finding the eggs to destroy them.some updates:
the prisoner that I caught, died on 13th. It was captured in a pile of DE on 9th. Thus it took 4 days for it to die upon ALOT of contact with DE. and not sure if it die because of DE or the poisoning from the pest control....
last wed, I took out my boys bolster encasement (not washed or dried before since the day the pest control came, however it was kept in a sealed bag). opening the trash bag, I saw an adult BB in the bag on the mattress cover. killed it. I dump everything in the dryer before washing. After drying (under regular temperature for about 10 mins) I took out the items to examine. Under the bolster flap, I found about 10 mini BBs, all exploded! threw away the bolster cover. (So, take note that under regular temp in a dryer for 10mins, BB will be killed.)
1. I have since unpack my room, less the storeroom, and living room. all the stuffs are in sealed bags. clothings are put into the dryer and then kept in sealed trash bags with cable tie.
2. I have since throw away my maid bed frame, my sofa, my computer table, my dining chairs (all wooden or cloth materials)
3. I have encase my Queen size mattress and my maid's mattress as well.
4. my house have DE all over.
5. I am still sealing up the cracks in the walls, the built in cabinets, the window frame, the wire conduits
6. I have also set up some traps, using the sugar, yeast, water method (so far only 1 small dead BB is found in the trap even after no one stayed at home for 5 days.
yesterday I found 2 dead mini BB on a plug. So far did not find any more BB that are alive.
tomorrow the pest controller will be here for the last treatment. Hopefully, after this, there will be no BB left in my house. This is damn stressful and tiring. Every night, my wife and me have to check the house, drying the clothings and washing. it's so tiring.....
