I found a bug in December. Confirmed as a bedbug by (company name removed). They sprayed especially after the dog confirmed an issue. 4 months of feeling like I would never know if they were gone and 7 additional dead bugs found: I call Boot A Pest. I had just steamed my couch and found 2 more bugs.
After emailing with John and telling him I was sure they were bedbugs: he comes to inspect. Looks through all my samples: (save all your samples!!!)
and says I never had bedbugs!
He said they were "odd beetles". I'm taking them up to the American Museum of Natural History today to have the entomologist confirm! I cannot believe this! I can unpack!!! Museum confirms "female Odd Beetle" Sooo crazy.
Do not do what I did! Namely: trust (company name removed) - (not that I did but my building contracts with them) and I waited without further help. The truth is: if you are in NY, don't waste your time or money with anyone else. 4 months!
I was expecting he'd give me the "all clear" and I would be dubious. He didn't even have to check my apartment. He just looked at my collection. He's amazing, so kind, and I'm so grateful for him and Bobby.
