I noticed my toddler had a few little bumps on her face a few days after my husband brought home a used computer chair 2 weeks ago. We shampooed it before bringing into the house but she did play on before we purchased it. A day or two ago I saw a bug in my office/playroom (it has a large sofa, computer desk, and toy bins) I thought that looks like a big tick or a small beetle. I didn’t think much of it but I smashed it with a paper and threw it in the trash in the kitchen.
Then yesterday I noticed my daughter had some bites on her stomach so I googled it and I am pretty sure the bug I saw in my office was a bed bug. I looked for evidence in my daughter’s room but couldn’t really find much, I think I found a bed bug shed skin but my husband isn’t sure if that is what it is. I vacuumed everything and laundered her bedding. I bagged up her toys and clothes and we ordered like all the things on the website (ha!)
I guess my question is do I need to treat the whole house? I checked for signs on my 5-year-olds bed and my bed and nothing that I can see. We are planning on treating all the beds and couches in the house and focusing on treating my toddler’s room and the office…but should I be treating every room?
Also what are things we should focus on while we wait for the products to get here in on Tuesday?
