Here is the deal - and you may think this is over simplyfying things, but it's really not:
Bed Bugs can't bite you if they can't get to your bed. This is the most important part of Bed Bug control, because it is the easiest to overlook. If you make your bed - Bed Bug proof, then problem solved - at least while you sleep. This means, making sure that there are no Bed Bugs ANYWHERE on your bed, your mattress, bed frame, headboard, etc. s free and clear. THEN and only then, should mattress encasements AND Interceptors (traps for the bed frame legs) be used. Make your the comforter is tucked in, not touching the floor, and there is no way a Bed Bug can crawl up the bed frame, posts, headboard, electrical cord, etc. to get to you. Also NEVER put anything on the bed that WAS on the floor or anywhere else. Make your bed - BED BUG PROOF!
If you do this, you can sleep at night. If you do this and still get bit, then all that it means is that you missed the Bed Bugs living in your bed, no where else. The one in the closet doesn't count. Because if it can't get to you to bite you, then if its a female, it can't lay eggs.
Pretty simple, and there are lots of what if's, but if you think about this in simple terms, it will make sense, and then you can begin to sleep again. If you need help on Bed Bugs throughout the rest of house, it sounds like Arrow did you no favors. You either need to commit to doing this yourself or hire another company.
