The bed bug death chamber arrived today. It heats contents to 120°F and kills every stage of bed bug life. I was encouraged to learn that bed bug eggs are visible to the naked eye (about the size of a short grain of rice). The early-stage nymphs are nearly microscopic, though.
Nearly all my stuff is in 30 gallon Ziplocks, or in crates sealed inside garbage bags. Now to decontaminate each, crate by crate. Nuke 'em from orbit (it's the only way to be sure).
No signs of bed bugs since the spraying last Wednesday. So far, so good.
Vlad is prone to sinus infections and uses a non-aerosol spray featuring “bag in can technology.” We call my apartment “life in bag technology.”
