Thank, Bob. We don't have mice (a couple of the cats are outstanding mousers) but we do have some bug that gives a nasty, itchy bite and it's not fleas or 'skeeters. I'm thinking it is spiders of some sort due to a waning red spot after the itch is gone.
Bob, did you get your ultrasonic devices from a guy in a white van? I hear they have the best products.
Bedbugs....if the spot is more mound like and sometimes there is a yellow head. If it takes days to subside....bedbugs. Depending on the family member that was the victim of feeding...different people have different reaction unlike mosquito bites that swell and subside within couple of hours.
Hmm...just moved here so that may be the issue. There is usually some visible evidence on and around the mattress, bedding, and frame correct?My bites are the size of a dime and so is the resulting red spot. The pictures I look at online show tiny a little bigger than the head of a pin. Also do not get bit everyday, just occasionally.
Ugh bed bugs... if you suspect you have them, call a professional. I've dealt with bedbugs a couple times now and it is almost impossible to get rid of them on your own. On the expandable foam... I'd still stuff the cracks with bronze wool first (I never thought about steel rusting, but that's a good point). Some of those foams are soft enough to chew through. Although I imagine steel wool impreganated within foam won't have to worry about rusting.
We live in the country and had mice for years. A combination of plenty of traps, and BRONZE wool, not steel (rusts), did the trick. Despite having a cockatiel that throws seeds all over the damned house, we've not seen a mouse for quite some time.
