Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! I hate little bugs. I really do. The other night I put my Lil Man to bed like everyother night and he was waking up every 20 min crying like someone broke is arm or something. It turns out that his Play pen was covered in bed bugs. EWWWWWWW.........and GRRRRRRRR.

I have had them once before and it took us a year to get rid of them. I HATE THEM SO MUCH!!!!!!!

Quoting Melissa:

What are bed bugs and how do you get them,?



Bed bugs are simaliar to lice but spread faster and are bigger. They are also different in alot of ways like they dont like hair they like to eat wood and skin. So if you see a little bug that is bigger then a lice but to (way to small) to be a cocroach then most likley it is your bed bug.



TIP - They are from the south because of most vacation spots they like to stay in hotels and motels that is why they are known as bed bugs.... so if you were vacationing, move alot or have things in storage, things like that this is probly  how you got them!!

Sorry to hear!! I have never had to deal with them but I know they are a pain in the butt!!

I would tell the land lord (ASAP) and have the apartment sprayed down for bugs ... they use a simaliar spray on roaches.... besides that your going to need alot of laundry soap, bleach, or whatever to disinfect your belongings and garbage bags .... For if they come back!! it is the easiest way to get rid of them. i helped a friend clean up their place after they had the same situation!!

Oh that's terrible. One of my friends had bed bugs in her house. For her they came in on a "new" couch she had brought from someone else who never told her they had a bed bug problem in there house. She ended up tossing that couch and getting someone to come in to get rid of them all since she tried everything to get rid of them. I hope you get rid of them though and do like Siobhan suggested, if they were there when you moved in it is the landlord's responsibility to get rid of them. I'd hope a basic law like that would cross over no matter what country you live in but I know here it is enforceable if the landlord doesn't do something to get rid of them.

did you move in recently? I would demand the landlord do something about them.

Quoting Siobhan:

Oh no! Good luck getting rid of them. Do you know where they came from?


 I want to say they were in the apartment when we moved in. They had to be. I don't really go anywhere during the day and my husband works at a hospital
