I have a full size futon that tri-folds, so there are 3 sections. I’ve been fighting bed bugs for a while. Due to the hardware, and the folding options, there’s a lot of nooks and crannies they can hide.
Although I am very diligent, and use a small steamer, spray alcohol, “climb up interceptors” on the feet, and check daily, I think there’s a few left.
A friend sleeps over every few weeks, and she reports 1 or 2 bites.
As there’s males, females, and eggs, which are the hardest to see, I’ve been thinking of using heat to get rid of them.
I am in a very small place in San Francisco, and have to be creative, as the power goes out if there is too much draw on the circuit.
Thought to either make a plywood box, and stick heaters in there, or use something like https://www.amazon.com/Dr-Infrared-Heater-Upgraded-Thermometer/dp/B00ZOUCYDW/, but it’s too small, as folded, the futon is 60"x21"x32".
