I wonder what happens to the plastic coating on the house's wiring?

Know anybody with some DDT stashed away in their barn? That gets them first dose.

That stuff worked. That is why we never had a bed bug problem.

DDT was a very effective pesticide. It was just misused. They thought more was better. In the right hands , used properly in low doses , it worked great.

Make sure they are bed bugs and not bat bugs they look extremely similar but with different habits.

This. Bat bugs look exactly like bed bugs. You need an entomologist to confirm. I'd look in the attic to see if you have bats. 1-3 times a year a customer will call, discovered they have bats by the bugs. Not all colonies have them.
