He's showing up again tomorrow morning at 8. The last thing he did yesterday was to put liners on the box springs and the mattress, which completely cover them top and bottom. I guess that's partly to hold in the poison, and partly it's to prevent any remaining live bugs from escaping.
Only problem was that the one he put on the mattress had a broken zipper, so it isn't closed all the way.
I didn't sleep on it last night. I slept on my couch, wearing my normal clothes. It wasn't very comfortable. I'm going to sleep on the couch tonight, but it'll be better.
First, I went to the store today and bought two new comforters and two pillows. (To replace the old ones, all of which went into the dumpster this morning.) Second, my couch is a futon and can be converted into a bed. I just did that, so tonight it'll be wider and more comfortable, and I'll have something covering me while I sleep.
(Covers, in summer? Well, you see, we're having an Oregon summer this year, which means it's overcast, cold, and rainy. It's been like that all of June and the weather report is that it's going to stay that way into early July, if not longer. Today was nice, but we're going back to rain tomorrow.)
The good side of sleeping on the couch is that it was never infected with bugs, and I'm sure I didn't get any new bites last night. I better not get any new ones tomorrow when I move back onto the real bed.

I'm not going to try to fix it. He's going to replace the cover. Since I'm going to be here, I'll probably help him with it, and I'm not looking forward to seeing the big black stain where the damned things were living.
There was a huge black stain like that on one of the comforters I threw out. I only saw it briefly but it made me feel a bit ill. Why? All that blackness was feces from the bugs, which is to say it was all processed blood.

This is their planet. They just let us live on it.
Because we're delicious.
