I've known people who have dealt with those awful things and it seems to drive people pretty close to actual madness (not to mention breaking the bank). I hope I never find out first-hand.

He has money for all those implements to kill Bedbugs, but not money to buy a new mattress

The bedbugs probably just moved next door to his neighbors.

Once you know you have them, it's usually too late to just replace the mattress. They get everywhere. In NYC they are even starting to tell people to put borrowed library books in the freezer for three hours when you bring them home because they are spreading around that way, too.

This reminds me of the Married with Children episode in which Al tries to get rid of a rabbit in his garden. That didn't end well either...and he still didn't kill the rabbit.

Having dealt with them in the distant past (and STILL having the occasional freakout/worry over the possibility of having them-is that an ancient, dead bedbug? Some other flat thing? OH GOD WHAT WAS IT), "Kill it with fire" is an incredibly tempting option.

They don't just live in the mattress.

Any nook, cranny, or crevice they can fit into (which is... A LOT. Including: Electronics, Behind power outlets, and IN YOUR SHOES (beneath the sole).)

They are like a demon scourge. And they are immune to most pesticides (probably bringing DDT back wouldn't even help: I believe there was evidence they were developing resistance when it was banned).

The federal Environmental Protection Agency says very high, sustained heat can kill bedbugs, but raising the temperature with the thermostat or space heaters won't do the job. It says special equipment is needed.

Actually yes it does work, this moron probably didn't full understand that you just have to heat the interior of the home to a sustained 130 degrees for three hours and you have to treat the ENTIRE home not just keep it one room.

We had bedbugs come over from the neighbors. It took several months of constant upending of furniture to spray with 91% rubbing alcohol, caulking every baseboard and spraying Alpine Dust behind switches and sockets and inside box springs.

Very much this.

Be vigilant if you ever have to deal with them. Check the mattress and bedframe every day. Kill any you find and take note of where they nest. Clean, vacuum, and steam the area. Flea powder won't do it but might help a little bit, or it might just drive them into the next room. Repeat and call the professionals if it's real bad. Keep an eye out for any sign of them coming back.

The paranoia about them sticks with you, though.

I dread if I ever have to deal with them. In the summer I usually have ants and silverfish. The worst I ever had to deal with was fleas. That sucked ass, I almost killed my rooamate and her cat. Took a while to get rid of them. Stupid cat.

Fleas are a pain in the ass. I'm glad I moved to a place they can't live.

I had those f*cking bastards follow me home from an overseas vacation a couple of years ago. Diatomaceous earth kills them, but I had a horrible allergic reaction to it, so just spray it when you see them. Boiled all my bedding and clothing, sealed it all in plastic bags. Exterminator sprayed the entire joint, top to bottom. Now when I travel, I leave my bag in my car for several days, parked in the hot sun or freezing cold, or stick my stuff in the freezer if its spring or fall.

Currently battling bedbugs, so I am not getting a kick...but I would like to subscribe to this guy's newsletter.

Sleep tight.  Don't let the bedbugs bite.

Brother has a large horse ranch. One of his hired hands is from Guatemala. Brought bed bugs back with him after a trip home. Burned down his quarters and half of one of brother's 70 stall barns, trying to get rid of the critters ... blow torching his bunk.

ProTip - horses hate fire.

Ran across them years ago staying in a dingy, short term apartment on my work travels. It was horrible. I literally left everything I traveled with there. Clothes... TV... bedding... all of it.

The paranoia truly does forever.

Check your hotel room... and put your bags in the bathroom... NEVER on or near the bed.

Fair enough.  The wife and I have a suicide pact concerning bedbugs.

We had an infestation of fleas last summer and holy balls, I wanted to burn the carpets. The boys spent a week at my inlaw's while we were out of town, and I think a combination of flea treatment wearing off and inlaws disobeying the 'KEEP INSIDE' order set us up for a bit of a nightmare. Ended up getting Fleabusters powder for the carpets which was messy and probably not good for me to be breathing, but after that started working and I was able to treat the cats again, finally the damn bugs died off.

The fleas weren't even the worst I've encountered as they rarely bit me, but it was just enough to make my skin crawl even at the memory...
