I think I'll check that map before anyone from Vancouver wants to visit!

I wonder how many of these buildings are owned by the same company?

Guys are having to fumigate their van's now.
Guess they pull out old carpet, put it in the van and dump it. Grab new carpet (bugs get back on it) and install it, to no end. Flooring companys have been spreading it around.
Filthy flooring guy, going port to port...
Is anyone else itchy right now??
no bedbugs in richmond. yay. (=
Hello? Anyone still out there? d:
Don't bring whipped cream to bed, those little things will have a feast!
Been clicking on the dots of the map and reading the tales.
Seems everyone flips out and moves so where are these other places for sure they bringing those little things with them...
Ewww is right. Just the thought of these li'l bastards makes me sick to my stomach....One of my wife's co-worker's kids came down with lice...I started getting itchy just hearing about it.
Yea man i am a FREAK SHOW about things like this...
I am very weary about when i hear a person say i got spider bites because the only known spider to bite in our area is a black widow and they don't seek spots in a bed....
All other spiders run like mad when they see humans they are more freaked than us. Don't ask me why i know i was messed up as a kid and had an aquarium full of a war zone of every spider known to our area.
But again spiders DO NOT BITE.... Bed bugs do.. ewwwwwwwwwwww
oh and i read earlier that movie theaters is a place to get them as well the bus seats with cloth jesus
The bedbug thing in Vancouver has been on the news for a while. I've known about this outbreak for over a year now. It's growing fast in East Van, and starting to hit other places too. Even staying at hotels in Kelowna and stuff, I always pull the bed sheets, and look for things before I even take my shoes off. I know a few people who have dealt with bedbugs, and sadly, the only real way to combat them, is throw EVERYTHING away (clothes, furniture, anywhere they can hide), dip your electronics in an alcohol bath and let dry completely, and anything cloth material based (towels, sheets, etc) gets burned. Then move to a building/place that has not had any reports of infestations.
There was only 1 product that was responsible for the eradication of the buggers in the 50s and 60s and that was DDT, which is now banned. Nothing else is really effective.

I hired someone who lives at this building. He complained of having bedbugs. Clothing in my van picked up some of the little bloodsuckers. As soon as I found them, I took off my work clothes and left them outside. I'm going to clean out the van now. What a pain in the ass.

Bed Bug Alert at Pinky's laundromat on Main St.
7 pm: noticed 5 bed bugs on top of 3 top-loader machines. Unfortunately after I'd already started my laundry. I pointed out the bugs and they handed me a cloth to wipe them off!!
But they nicely cleaned them off with the cloth for me when I refused. Well, too bad for me I was washing wool in a cold wash. After I'd obsessively wiped down the washers a second time with disposable paper towel, I loaded all my laundry into my rubbermaid containers - keeping the one load I'd washed w/cold separate - and hauled them off to a laundromat in Kits. I made sure to dry everything for 20 minutes on hot, except the wool which got washed again.
I'm sure the wash cloth that took those bedbugs off my machines is still sitting next to the sink in the laundromat.
MORAL: always, always check your machines first!!!Or, use the front-loaders.
