would you be able to tent fumigate a house and kill them or is it more detailed than that even?
Its more detailed than that.
Tinting a home or a building is very expensive.
The other issue, depending on the state laws.
Nevada you have to have a license just for fumigation and it isn't cheap.
We have a couple people here that we will call for fumigation not just for bed bugs, but with shipping companies that their trailers will get infested with rodents, or other pests in the products that are being shipped in from all over.
Alot of the weekly shit hole motels in Reno have been condemned by the city and are being torn down due the infestations.
There are companies that will bring in heaters to cook the homes, But that only works if the bed bugs are out in the open and in the furniture.
You still need to put down a pesticide for a residual that will take care of them as they come out of their hiding places.
The big thing I tell people, especially if they travel.
Do not put your clothes in the drawers or leave them laying around in a room. Leave them in your luggage and if there is a bath tub in the room. Put your luggage in that at night. They can't climb a slick surface. When yiu get home.
Take all your clothes and then put them in your dryer on high for atleast 90 minutes.
It will cook any of the bugs or eggs that may have got onto your clothes.
Years ago an ex-Marine taught me a trick for preventing/eliminating bed bugs. Get medicated foot powder - the stuff in the blue bottle, not the yellow bottle. Peel back the sheets and mattress cover and sprinkle the powder over the mattress from head to toe. Put the cover and sheets back on. You will smell like mentholatum, but you won't have any trouble with bed bugs. Marines of that era always carried foot powder for their feet, but they also never knew where they were going to bunk, so they always practiced that trick.
A tale too nasty to tell.
But Im gonna share it anyway.
Years ago a friend moves in with his "dream girl"
Just room mates but hes figuring thats the first step right?
He goes out of town for a couple of weeks and when he gets back there is a line of ants from the front door to her bedroom door.
Being an Eagle scout he goes in to investigate.
He found a couple of hundred empty bottles of Dr. Pepper and the ants were swarming on a,pile of her dirty panties on the floor.
He showed up on my door at about 4am and was so screwed up that my ex kept checking his blood pressure.
She thought he was having a siezure.
And now you know one of the things I wish I didnt know.
I was surprised to see so many 8k square foot and up homes in my area. The largest home I took care of was 18,900 square feet and occupied by a husband, wife, and 12 year old son. I can't imagine what utility would be for something that big. It had a lot of cool features, but I'd rather have a modest home and ridiculous garage, lol! I can dream.
Your story is just what I needed today. Thank you for a really good laugh. I'm laughing with you NOT at you. Maybe this is why you and your ex aren't together anymore.
Ha! It probably didnt help!
Its kinda funny, us Western Washington boys dont give a shit about bears or cougers or 6 gill sharks or orca whales either
It's crazy, big ass house and only a couple people live in them part time.
I call them trophy's.
This is one of the homes I go out to a couple times a year.
They only want $39 mill
Wow $39 mil that’s incredible, Imagine the maintenance costs are a $ million a year easy
Probably not quite that high but I'm sure it's still ridiculous. I have a weird fascination with large residential properties, both in-use and abandoned. IIRC the Evander Holyfield mansion was something like 40K square ft and I think it's maintenance costs were around $1mil annually.
EDIT - Yeah just Googled it. 54K square ft, $1mil upkeep annually, $17K electric bill every month.
