  • My first house had a bed bug infestation which suddenly started so god knows where these fuckers came from into our home. My dad is damn lucky he is immune to their bites. But me..oh man. I was in hell. I could never sleep!! Never! The fuckers bit me everywhere it itches like crazy and goes all swollen and red as hell and never ends.i got scars from all the excessive itching all over my body. Pest control wasnt much effective either. We ended up changing our home after 1 year of my suffering bcoz i coudnt tolerate living in that hell anymore. And trust me bedbugs make your life hell.
