Re: More Stuff

Yeah, but I still saw a few after that amount of time. What I don't know is if I'd picked up some while walking, or if I had accidentally made a point where they can cross, like a blanket or pillow touching the wall.

I'm still gonna keep working on the room and spraying, though.

Re: More Stuff

It might still be too early to tell, but at the same time I've been seeing more of them walking on any laundry dropped on the floor than I see on the bed itself.

Re: More Stuff

I put down some of that DE. I have some laundry in a box from the previous time I cleaned my room, most of which are too small to fit me any more, but I saw a bunch of bed bugs crawling in it. Since I can't rewash everything right this second (before 4 AM), I decided to pull it away from everything ...

Re: More Stuff

Well, I'll have plenty of time to do more cleaning next Monday and Tuesday, as I'll have those two days off, and once I get that done, I can haul my mattress set outside and light them on fire, then use the cot and surround it with DE.

Re: More Stuff

Well, after passing a lighter over the visible nests on my mattress and then spraying, I've only seen two bugs actually on my bed, and both times pillows had been touching the walls (one of the bugs had been on the pillow, and my cat brought it to my attention). I haven't seen any since the early ho...

Re: More Stuff

Yeah, I'd seen a couple in the bathroom. I think, though, once we get them out of the bedrooms, we can use a combination of the spray and some DE to keep them out. Although, we also have textured walls, so maybe we can dust the walls with that stuff, if it's light enough to not fall off when applied...

Re: Another Update 2019-07-25

Yeah, but that's a jobby, not a hobby. I mean, like... model building, or something. There was that thing with the bowling ball and mirrors that she tricked herself into doing via the diary, so I'm thinking she'd do something with crafts.

Acacia's got legs for days. Not sure what she does with them overnight though. Also, I wanna know what Brandi's been up to. Did she take up a hobby?

Re: More Stuff

Well, good news on the bedbug front: I cleaned up most of my room and went all around the mattress with the spray that kills adults and eggs AFTER passing the flame from a Bic lighter over the nesting areas and anything that looked alive. Later today, we're gonna yank out my bed and burn it, then on...

Re: More Stuff

Do your neighborhood recyclers a favor: take a broad tip felt pen and write "BEDBUGS" in large letters on both sides of the bags you put the mattress and box spring in. Mom suggested we burn it, since it's more than ten years old. It just has to stop raining long enough for me to do that, and I int...

Re: More Stuff

Well, I have a cot and a bag of DE, and found the other bag of the stuff at home. I also have a cot, so I can get rid of my mattress and box spring, which are both directly on the floor, while also taking a lot of space. I was thinking I'd spray those before taking them out of my room (probably get ...

Re: More Stuff

Friggin' hell... bed bugs... I picked up a gallon of the spray today, and while it says every two weeks until they're gone, I'm gonna say every week until two weeks after we stop seeing any during inspections. I'm glad I was finally gonna replace my mattress, too. We got it back in '08 or so. Food ...

Re: More Stuff

Well, I'm apparently too stupid to follow the written instructions that came provided for how to attach the sprayer. "Insert the end of the hose into the cap until it clicks." The problem is that this isn't possible with the way the hole on the cap was shaped. There were four prongs that looked like...

That's actually two different spots where light is reflecting. One is on her lip (probably lip gloss or whatever), the other is on her chin.

Re: More Stuff

After watching a video about a how someone managed to take a picture of the "Elephant's Foot" in Chernobyl, I ended up reading more about corium. Why is it that those videos about the creepiest Wikipedia pages never include that article in their lists? That's something I wouldn't want to be anywhere...

Being unfamiliar with diesel and fertilizers and their reactions to each other, do they have a tendency to explode?

Re: June 4th - Quick Update

Yeah, but apparently "chonky" isn't necessarily fat, flabby, or chunky. Someone told me that muscles can contribute to chonk.

It's a cute look, kind of like the big paws on a lynx or a snow leopard.
