We threw away the mattress, hovered the bed and painted it.
We have had no problems since then.

That's interesting. I heard they are hard to get rid of.

I'm in rented property. Landlord paid for pest control who did a treatment in 1 day. I moved out for a couple of weeks because it was freaking me out. I tried to stay there again the other night. Same mattress, same bed, same furniture etc. I put a zipped mattress protector on that's supposed to help. Anyway, I woke up at 1am itching like hell. I was bitten to shreds again. Turned the light on to see loads of little bugs bugs crawling all over the bed. It's really freaking me out. I had to take a shower, drive to my parents, bag up my clothes, etc... They are gross.

In this case, the landlord is saying I must have brought them to the flat. However, Iíve never seen them anywhere else and was told there was a bed bug infestation before I moved moved in. Anyway, they hide out in little nooks and crannies in wood. They can survive for up to 18 months without food according to one article I read, however the science is hard to prove. They feed only on blood! Gross... anyway, Iím kind of homeless now crashing at my parents house. All my possessions are in bags zipped up waiting to be treated by me, when I get the chance. And to top it off I canít sleep because itís freaking me out. They lay eggs. If you leave clothes on floor or s bag or something they can crawl on it and lay eggs or hide on them etc to transfer to a new gaff... buggers.

I was staying in a B and B in an old building in Suffolk and on the last day I was packing up whilst sitting on the bed and a bed bug was on my leg. Luckily I saw it and checked the luggage or I would have taken the blighter home.

It's a bit unfortunate if blame is apportioned - they spread by ways optimised through many years of evolution.

Edit: of course they could have been created - but what kind of God would create bed bugs.

Of course neighboring flats could be re-infecting

Whoever manages the block should check.

You can also find them in hotels, a friend of mind stayed at a hotel in Camberwell and took them home.
