We moved to a new house at Christmastime and my 3 yr old and 6 yr old have been getting occasional bites on their arms/legs while sleeping. We flea bombed when they started getting worse (last week) and then found 1 dead bedbug. Since then my older kids haven't gotten bit, but my 18 month old is getting a dozen or more bites everyday. We've used an insecticide (purchased from an exterminator), used bedbug foggers (I have read that they don't work), I've removed everything from the rooms and either washed/dried or sealed it in trash bags. I've also cleaned the bed frames, moved them away from the wall, vacuumed, etc. This has all been done within the past 24-36 hours. How soon might we start seeing results? We're hoping to avoid an exterminator, but obviously won't keep letting our baby get bit. No one else in the house is getting bites now so it's heartbreaking.

I'd appreciate ANY advice at all!! Bedbugs are a nightmare. Thank you!
