I have been living in my apartment for almost 7 years now and this is the first bed bug encounter I have ever had in my life! For at least 4 months now I have been bitten on an almost daily basis. Today was the first day that I have reported it to my landlord as we also have carpet beetles and I thought that it could have been an allergic reaction to that or due to my neighbors having cats with probable fleas. Last night at 1 am I found a bug in my bed. I looked online for bed bugs and the bug I
found matched the description online.I am now horrified to go to sleep in case I get bit again by those nasty creatures. I also thought previously that it could have been spider bites or an allergic reaction to some kind of food, however the rest of my family wasnt getting bit so I was thinking it could have been all in my head or something but now I know for a fact it was bed bugs I can at least rest knowing what it is ... metaphorically speaking of course. this afternoon I found another bug in my bed under the covers. Thank goodness I didnt take a nap or I would have been bit AGAIN. I cant take it anymore as the bites are driving me crazy, not to mention how it lowers my self esteem when I have bites that are in places noticeable to others such as on my neck, arms or legs. These bugs seem to go for my veins and now I get why I am so fatigued lately... a bug is sucking me dry form the inside out. My landlord says that she'll call pest control tomorrow but I doubt it. We also have mice, silverfish, rats, carpet beetles, moth larva and fleas. Not the best place to rent I would say as there are other issues with any landlord that has owned this apartment in the last 7 years. All of them have not done a single damn thing with the silverfish. The rats however are in the lower floor. #4 is where the first discovery of bedbugs is but not the culprit.
