bed bug relief - lemonzzzz (1 Viewer)

M

muff cabbage

I deleted myself
Yo so I stayed at my friends factory and got a few bites. Luckily no hitchhiking bedbugs caught a ride on my clothes.

My coworker recommended rubbing bites with a slice of lemon cuz it's an antibacterial. It relieved the swelling and the pain / itch pretty fast.

I was like wtf how do you know this and he was like cuz I'm Mexican lmao.

Hope the helps.

oh geez - there was article or post the other day that stated their transit bus system had bedbugs. I ride bus everyday and do quick visual on seats looking for wetness, food and things stuck on there but bed bugs. ugh. don't want them.

ha - several years ago I'm standing at bus shelter and kid was there - he was homeless and sleeping at shelters - raised up his t shirt suddenly and picked off a bed bug and squished it - and he had all sorts of red bumps on his stomach. OUCH.

Thanks for the lemon help, but man I don't want to have to use it. ;)

that's very fucking smart

not to be off topic but...this reminds me of how I've seen people 'proofing' a grill with a halved onion before cooking

say what you feel but i reckon it's a lot wiser than a metal brush

If you/friends find you have them ...

Mixed up a spray, kills em before I could count to 20... Aka, kills on contract.

Almond soap... I used Dr. Bronner's & Bleach, mixed with water & then sprayed.
... Lil home bug-killer does have bleach - but it kills quick! So, bleach can be rinsed out/off almost right away ...

Oil base being the important aspect of the soap i choose.... Spearmint oil, tea tree oil, etc - would likely have worked out too, if mixed with an alcohol vs. water...
But oil soap is what I had, & things could use soap... So it's what I went with.
(photo of soap included, as many have seen it - but may or may not know the name)

Put all your shit in the dryer for at least 30 min to kill them and bathe then don't let them into your shit again.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
