Itchy Hell...

Slowly, day by day, my left arm became more and more itchy.  I thought it was the oddest thing. It was like I was getting flea bites, but I knew we couldn't have had any fleas where we were.  A week or so went by and I saw this strange bug. Looked a bit like a tick.  So, I looked it up online......Bed Bugs. I always thought it was just some cute little saying while putting your kids to bed. They  (the site) spoke of where they like to hide, so I went searching.  To my amazement I found an entire city of them under the mattress and in my pillow case.  It took forever for us to get them out of our apartment. We're still not sure how they got there. I apparently was allergic to them, or I tasted better.  My husband didn't get any bites at all.  It was turning into a rash practically on my arm.  Finally, we were able to get rid of them after finding this certain spray.  I'll never forget that city of them in my pillow case though.  Talk about creepy.

Well I've been dealing with them for like a year. Any chance you can help me out and tell me what the spray is? I probably have used it, lol. I've got a ton of solutions under my sleeve that I've been working on for the past week. I learned the hard way that the foggers and sprays don't really work. But if you found a spray that killed an entire city of bedbugs, then I would love to hear about it! :) I will start my own story soon. I have some good suggestions.

I always thought bedbugs only existed in bedtimes sayings too. My niece and nephew got bite all over while staying at a nicer, nationally known hotel. It makes me itch just thinking about it.

errr. i wake up with little bites on me too. gonna have to check now. i remember once a whole army of ants invaded my bedroom. there were hundreds and hundreds, all making a line for my cup of water. thank god i looked at it before i drank that night. mouth full of ants. what a nightmare. and at the time my bedroom was such a mess that it took hours to clean up and get them out. horrible.
