Because of BedBugs I am Freaking Out and Not Sleeping Much
I have had bed bugs for a little over a week now that I know of. I first saw one and freaked out when it was on my bed.
Then two days later I saw another bed bug climbing up my bedroom wall above my bed when the lights were on. The 5th day I saw another bug in my bed and so on and just yesterday I found 3 on top of my mattress my son snuck into my room to sleep and he was bitten up so bad on his forehead shoulders, arms and chest.
I was bitten a few times too. I'm too scared to sleep in my bedroom. I hate bugs. I have a 3 year old, the one that has been bitten like crazy, and a 14 month baby girl. Her bed is clean no bugs she has not been bitten that I know of.
The point is I hate bugs and the biting itches so bad and my poor son if I've seen 6-7 bedbugs in a week and a half almost and that was just on top of mattress on sheet and the one on wall and son gets bit about 5-8 times a nigh. My infestation is so bad.
Editor Suggestion Bed Bugs in the Bedroom
I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through this bed bug situation, especially with young children in the house. It must be incredibly stressful and uncomfortable for you and your family. Bed bugs can be quite difficult to deal with, and it's
completely understandable that you're feeling scared and overwhelmed.
Here are a few suggestions that might help you manage the situation:
1. Vacuum your entire home thoroughly, focusing on your bedroom, mattresses, and any upholstered furniture. Be sure to empty the vacuum cleaner bag outside of your home.
2. Wash all your bedding, clothes, and any soft furnishings in hot water (at least 120°F / 49°C) and dry them on the highest heat setting for at least 30 minutes to kill the bed bugs and their eggs.
3. Use mattress and box spring encasements specifically designed to protect against bed bugs. These will seal off the bugs and their eggs and prevent them from getting in or out.
4. Consider using bed bug traps, like interceptors, under your bed legs to catch any bugs trying to climb up your bed.
5. Remove any clutter from your bedroom, as bed bugs love hiding in small, dark spaces.
If possible, consult with a professional exterminator who specializes in bed bug treatment. They can assess the situation and provide the most effective treatment options. Bed bugs are very hard to treat on your own.
It's essential to remain vigilant and patient, as bed bug eradication can take time. Make sure to communicate openly with your family members about the situation and support each other. Remember that you're not alone in dealing with this problem, and many others have successfully overcome bed bug infestations. Stay strong, and I hope you and your family find relief soon.
Best of luck,
