We found a strange-looking bug, and Ed put it in a jar, to take to the church, and to show the lady who comes for the church. She cleans, and sprays for bugs. She came at 1:00 P. M. and Ed went home to get the jar with the bug. He left it at home. She looked at the bug, and said, “It looks like a bed bug to me.”
We had a bug specialist come, and sure enough, he knows the bug, and knows how to get rid of him, and his family.
Since those words have been said, we have been cleaning, and letting someone come to check to see if we have them other places.. We have had several overnight guests who stayed on our couches. They had no, where to go, and they asked to stay with us. We think the bug was brought in, and we suspect recently.
The bug-man will be coming back to the house to inspect more, and to spray down the beds, and other places. We caught it on the front end, so it will be eradicated, but not that easily. He must come back several, times to spray, and treat the house.
One little bug, brought in by someone, or on clothes that were purchased at a yard sale. Some people are not careful, and this is how our house is now being cleansed, and cleaned. Our vacuum is frequently run, and we have a new, machine to help us. I do say it is much trouble, but our home will be bug safe soon.
No more visitors spending the nights on the couch. We will get rid of what is needed to rid of. This is no small thing to abolish this strong personality, type, bug. We only found the one, but he did find some things that show the bugs have been here at night while we sleep. How awful, and humiliating. It makes me want to preach, “Put your food away. Clean up your messes, and don’t let the bug bite.
