Seriously, if you need an exterminator, I highly recommend Rodney at My Private Exterminator. It’s true he’s never failed me or anyone I know.
oh noo, my parents had them and they are the worst. I trapped some and tried to kill them with all of the household products and the bed bug sprays. Most didn’t work but then I got a steamer and they just die instantly. I have a new respect for steamers.
Good battle, and good luck!
For the record, I don’t have them anymore!
hahaha just keep telling yourself that.
In my experience, there’s a big difference between having them and not having them.
Your creepiest comic yet
I feel traumatized. Great comic though!
Gabrielle, a good job of capturing what it’s like to deal with bedbugs. Reminds me of my last year in NYC, when I was battling bedbugs over 12 months. I finally moved to the Boston area. It’s been over half a year without any a sign of them, so I’ve successfully escaped them! But I’m probably moving back to the NYC area this year, so your recommendation of an exterminator may prove handy.
Love the giant bug! Kafka! For me, it’s head lice. Our family has had three infestations, and the first comic I ever did was about the bugs. They totally put me over the edge.
I LOVE what you did with having them as bed-guests—ahahah i was going to write my own comic strip too about them. Had a minor scare at home in the Bx and have just moved to Bk—so old fears that are SORT of unfounded have resurfaced. It’s great to be able to laugh about it since they obviously aren’t going anywhere and we can’t stop our lives, but it’s SICK, for me, at least, the way even the notion of them pervades my psyche. . . so, thanks for providing the comic relief, it’s greatly appreciated. I also recommend an exterminator: Cesar Soto of Freedom Pest Control. Awesome human being and very sincere. Really helped us out in the Bx, and we had a minor infestation, if any. The point was though, we took preventative measures, which is so key in this. Ok I’m ranting. Peace and thanks again!
I’ve grown rather attached to 90% rubbing alcohol, available cheep from Dubya. In a one of those dollar spray bottles, it snuffs damn near anything smaller than a half-dollar coin. It is very quick-takes but a couple of seconds for your chosen victim to die of alcohol poisoning. Beats using those nerve-gas based pesticides the teevee is so fond of pushing.
Oh, and ventilate the room. The stuff will eventually do harm to you, as well, like any alcohol…..
