      bug bombs for bed bugs- If I were you, I would set off a couple (and move out for a day).

      If you have hardwood or tile, carefully caulk around the baseboard.  Fill the space with caulk and prevent trhem from coming in.  If you have carpet, lift the carpet back from the baseboard, spray the Home depot chemicals underneath the baseboard and put the carpet back.  You can create a chemical barrier.  Also look under yuor sinks and caulk around all the pipes.

      this works to keep roaches from your neighbors from entering your place as well.  ( also caulk between each of teh kitchen shelves and the wall, since that's where bugs like to hide.  The caulk is $1.25 a tube anx a caulkiing gun is only a couple of bucks.

      When you move to a new place, put your clothes and bedding in black plastic bags and place in the direct sun to heat up for a couple of days.

      ( We have a bunch of condos and apartments, and always rent them bug and bed bug free- but that doesn't mean that they don't get bugs later.  It is a basttle you never win permanently.)

      good luck.

        will ( or should ) be very concerned about bed bugs.  You can ask him to heat treat your apartment if you have evidence of bedbugs.  It costs him $500-1000 per apartment, and he ends up doing all the adjoining apartments as well.  

        It is very frustrating as an owner when people bring bedbugs into an apartment and you end up with bed bugs in the entire building.

        Rule number 1- NEVER buy or pick up a sofa or bed at a garage sale or flea market. (They should call them bed bug markets)

          will be bagged and put in storage for two months. Which is pointless because as soon as they treat an adjoining apartment I will see one again. They need to do the entire building to even get a handle on the problem. And I can't sleep on an army cot for two months.
