believe me when i found out about the bedbugs i nearly died. i think there was a mouse at one point too. never found him though. i bought those sonic pest control things you plug in and i had one in all 4 rooms and bedbug bedding and that powder that turns them into french fries. I put the wheels of the bed frame in disposable tupperware type containers with that powder in them and fried a roach. when i moved i went through everything prior to packing it and loaded it all into the van where it sat in the heat for almost a week before i brought it into the house. never found any bedbugs other than the 3 i saw originally in that other apt. neighbors all around were getting mutilated by them and i had none. i made sure i didn't bring any with me.
