    funny to mention a year after I had bed bugs my brother-in-law got a sniffing dog and because I was so paranoid I always made the dog sniff and he never found anything but I did hear of your concern where dogs can always detect it like I said I had exterminators who didn’t attacks it and couldn’t find anything I actually found out that I had a bed bug was one day I came back from being away for Shabbos because I was so paranoid that I was being bit and my husband thought it was just mosquito bites so to calm you down we went away when we came back home we saw a cockroach Welcome to Brooklyn run into my room and it ran under my bed and my husband picked up the bed the Box bed and bang the box twice really hard and all of a sudden we saw two little bugs bed bugs fall on the floor and crawl away that’s how I realized that we had bed bugs otherwise it didn’t see anything I didn’t see the signs that they tell you to look on the mattresses or anything of the like. when I started calling exterminators there was one nice exterminator who told me about this white powder so I really have to give him the credit if it makes you feel any better I actually found out that fleas are much worse than bed bugs. By the way I also heard the Heat treatment is not always so efficient I don’t know offhand because I never did it cuz thankfully we were able to tackle it on our own and yes you are able to tackle it on your own my brother-in-law like I said worked for a pest control company had his own dog and he says you can do it yourself

    Hi I’m sorry to hear that bedbugs are never fun we had bed bugs about 7 years ago when we lived back in Brooklyn I was the only one in my household getting bit and it was not fun and then my son was getting bit as well and it was the size of like ping-pong because I guess he was allergic to the bites
    I did not find bed bugs anywhere in my house I was told that it was being trafficked by the other apartments we had brought exterminator twice to no avail we put all of our beds in special casings which I bought from BJs and Bed Bath & Beyond all of our clothing I took the laundromat and washed and dried and we lived out of bags like specials Ziploc bags for a whole year cuz it can take up to a year for them to die I know that’s not fun to hear all of my kids clothes that were in storage I did not wash them what I ended up doing was I got construction bags from Home Depot and I ended up spraying this white powder on it and we found an amazing website called domyownpetcontrol.com we ended up ordering all of our chemicals on there and the magic thing that really did the job was a powder I don’t remember the name of the powder but if you call them they can tell you it kills the bed bugs within 24 hours it’s a chemical that scratches the bed bugs body which causes it to the hydrate and die now the larvae can hatch after two weeks and you need the larvae to die as well so this powder is so amazing that it’s works for six months and then after 6 months you need to reapply it so we had put it all around the perimeter of the house the walls we took her off the Outlets from the walls and we sprayed powder in the walls as well I can’t tell you how much it helped us within a week I had tackled the the bed bug situation and like I said I had people come to exterminate to know valve. You will need to buy a special powder bottle to be able to spray the proximity of your apartment I also did the outside of the door I don’t know if you live in an apartment building or just a two-family kind of house and your door just goes outside to the to the street so I had did a little bit outside my hallway and my door interesting Lee enough I was finding them in the bathroom and in the kitchen which is not a typical place to find the time so that’s how I knew they were coming from other places you’re also going to want to spray regular liquid spray as well like I said you can ask them about the powder there are several different powders so the one that we got was the one that kills them within 24 hours. Hatzlach

    I don’t see a problem with it. BH to all the amazing Rabbis and Rebbenises that help me to be who I am today may be Gabached . I myself may a BT for over 14 years. Went to s Seminary to learn more about the yiddishkit my husband grew up dati laumi style. him and I today are very frum we do lot of things that regualrt ffb dont do (not that i trying to brag or show off )people who see us cannot even believe for the slightest moment that we are BT and are past. My boys go to a very yishavish school and my girls also. I don’t like telling people that I am BT because people can be very judgemental (I won’t say everyone is like this) I get labeled and my kids and have hard times when I went to certain people or places. Unfortunately sometimes we as people cuz this labeling issue. Unfortunately we miss the bigger picture and seeing how people are today. A lot of people would be shocked to know how many grandparent parent and regular people are BT but don’t speak about it openly. And I disagree with the notion that BT go a lot more off the D it’s is happening in every sect and group. I hope I didn’t offend anyone and if I did I’m sorry that wasn’t my intention (I useally don’t like writing posts)
