something about this sounds off. how the hell do you get an exterminator to rush over at 3am for bed bugs? also why does he bring a video camera?

the mattress in the video looks much bigger than a bunk bed mattress too. and what is with the weird ass editting job of making the video all skinny and duplicating it blurred out? that seems like an odd effect to just randomly do if you aren't trying to hide the rest of the frame.

Vertical video syndrome. The blurry part is so it fills the whole picture.

Bedbugs in a mattress in a mattress in a hole in the bottom of the sea?
 
2014-02-11 08:57:53 AM
I once saw a news show (20/20, 48-hrs, something like that) where this poor girl in NY bought a mattress as new at a furniture shop and it was the same deal there, except there were no bedbugs, but she developed a skin irritation and when they opened up the "new" mattress it looked like something from a vacant crack house; I felt like throwing up.  The nastiest thing ever.

A lot of contractors will bring a video camera.  Helpful when people don't pay them.   3 a.m.?  That does seem unlikely.

Brent Agee is the owner of  MasterTech Pest Solutions. "A mattress inside a mattress," he says. "That's the first time I heard about people doing that, but that's usually where you find bed bugs, inside mattresses."

Oh he owns an exterminating business? That makes this story so much more believable.

I don't care if it is a single, that is way too cheap for a new mattress and should have been a big clue to the buyer.

Not uncommon at all. In fact this happens all the time. Google it. Better yet, drive around in poorer urban neighborhoods. You'll see a lot of liquor stores, check cashing joints and...you guessed it, mattress stores. Just little storefront places that 'make' mattresses right there on site. These places are infamous for 'recycling' old mattresses.

Mattress stores make used car stores look like Amazon by comparison. I hate buying a new mattress. It's not just the stores, either - manufacturers do their level best to obfuscate product lines in terms of features, quality, etc., specifically to make mattresses harder to compare side-by-side. Consumer Reports had a rather scathing article some years back which described all of the ways mattress manufacturers and distributors scam consumers, from misleading language to manipulating ostensibly quantitative measurements like "spring count".

I read that same article from CR and they said mattresses are marked up 50%+ and they were pretty much all the same and to just buy the most inexpensive mattress that felt comfortable to you.  The end.

Dateline or 20/20 did an expose on this years ago.  Companies were picking up old mattresses from thrift store, dumps, sides of roads, etc, slapping new covering on them, and selling them as new.

I just sold a 30 year-old seriously used twin mattress online and I had people clambering over themselves to buy it from me.  It sold within a couple of hours despite posting it at like 3AM, and I had to start responding to inquiries with; "Here's my address, the first one here gets it."  The first guy to show up tried to convince me to sell other mattresses in my house, and looked at me like I was made of poo when I asked if he wanted the boxspring too.  Makes me wonder if my childhood mattress is enjoying a second life as a new mattress!
Go li'l mattress!

Well that pretty much summed up my whole experience at Art Van.  The rock hard boner of a sale turned me off more than anything so I bought elsewhere and don't plan on ever going back.  I can tell you they can't buy up every other ad spot on every other tv station in the metro area while also being able to sell a quality product at a good price.

My apt complex got the bedbugs a while back, including my apt. Those things are the worst. Roaches/ants can be sprayed and poisoned with bait. Rats/mice can be killed with traps. The only way to really get bedbugs is too cook (heat to above 120 degF) your house/apt for a couple days. Those farkers hide all over the place and are seriously crafty bastards.

The first person to make a legitimate trap or bait that works on bedbugs is a multimillionaire.

This is one reason we gave up beds entirely last year. Mattress places are worse than used car places, and for something even a little comfortable the prices are insane. For less than $200 we built a stand and bought a hammock large enough for two (stretched out it's a little shorter and a lot wider than a king bed, but empty it only has about a 2' footprint). Haven't woken up with a sore back since, and yes everything that can be done in a bed can be done in a hammock. Some things that CAN'T be done (at least not easily) in a bed can also be done in a hammock.

Honest, it has nothing to do with any hipstery/hippy stuff -- just tried sleeping in a hammock one night when we were thinking about hammock camping at some point, and woke up after ~4 hours feeling better than I ever have in my life, then attempted to sleep in bed again the next night and woke up after 8 hours feeling like I'd been beaten and hadn't slept at all... and then Mr. safeforwork had the same experience. We immediately went shopping for a two person hammock. Within the month the whole family had switched.

/still haven't gone camping

There was a guy on Fark a while back that claimed he was "just about to patent" some kind of bedbug trap and he would shiat up the thread ranting about it.  Haven't seen him in a while, though.

Some have asked why the mattress in the video is bigger than a twin mattress.  It's simple.  She boght the twin mattresses for the kids.  The big mattress in the video was hers.

Bedbugs were virtually unknown in the US for years.  There is a means to kill them.  It's called DDT.

"Heeeyyy, come on down to Al Peck's Used Mattress Emporium, and remember my guarantee: Every mattress comes with a free mattress stuffed inside, kinda like a mattress turducken! And all this week, we're throwing in free pets for the kids! Real affectionate, they'll snuggle right up to you while you sleep! They're tiny and cute and... well, okay, they're bedbugs, but don't worry, these bedbugs won't bite, because I personally pull all their teeth before they leave the store! In fact, come on down today and get a free bedbug tooth necklace with every purchase! No song and dance here, just great deals on mattresses!"

I'm shopping for one now. From what I have figured out the major brands are rip offs. I'm looking into some of those companies that send you the foam pieces and you assemble. At least I will know what is in the mattress.

Also the best way to avoid the hard sell at a mattress store is to bring a 4 year old with you.

You're right, it was also due to hunting. Or have you never heard of the passenger pigeon?

The stupidity on Fark today is just amazing.
