Centipedes? In My...? on 12/09/2010
The landlord of 1670 Gates responded swiftly to the problem, paying for an exterminator to treat our apt.
The exterminator said our prisoner was, yes, a bedbug, but he found signs of no others in the apt.
Happily ever after?
Centipedes? In My...? on 12/01/2010
On 11/27/2010 my husband and I found one adult bedbug on our bed. We incarcerated him in a jar (the bedbug chokey). Upon further search, we found a smaller molted exoskeleton on top of a suitcase under the bed. We caught this on a piece of scotch tape. We bought and sprayed pesticide; wrapped some of our belongings in plastic and discarded others; and washed and dried our bedclothes & other laundry.
On 11/30/2010, I alerted our neighbors via flyers taped to doors.
On 12/1/2010, I contacted
our extermination company and found our bldg's mgmt co's account was on hold with the extermination co., and no exterminator was scheduled to visit. I contacted our landlord about this.
