Close!

I was walking by and saw the guys unloading industrial sized fans. About 5 of them. And what looked like short segments of metal duct work, but turned out to be powerful electric heaters.

The owner came out, just as I got in front of the house, and shouted to another neighbor that they were getting rid of their bedbugs.

The service is very discreet, with no signs on their trucks.

When I got home, I looked it up. Apparently the homeowner has to open all drawers, cupboards, and closets. Remove all candles, aerosol cans, cans of soda, oil paintings, flammable fluids, pets, plants, etc. from the house, and unplug everything and turn off the HVAC. Then the service runs the powerful heaters off the generators and heats the house up to about 150 degrees and holds it there all day. That kills everything in the house.

They were setting up at around 8am and just left at 4pm.

The only way you can tell anything is going on is that you can see the generators running and heavy cables running in the front door and into windows.

If you left out trays of sliced vegetables, you'd have a nice set of dehydrated chips when you came back!

Good thing they didn't have any indications on their trucks or equipment.







Unless.

Unless they were setting up something else, like a panic room and they used those big boxy things as distracting camouflage.

What would you bet that all the people working on-site for that company have bedbugs*? That they brought home from on-site.

*More than the rest of us I mean.

One of my cow-orkers was giving SEIT services in a particularly sketchy home. She would only work with the child in the middle of a hardwood floor and would then go home and throw all her clothes in the dryer at high heat.

I like how they put the dunderheads next to the traffic.

Haven't seen the portrait yet. Need timed tickets to go up the tower.

But I went for a walk today and saw this.

And this is pretty cool. Just the right height for somebody to pose in front of so the wings fit.

I'm sure there is a story, but I don't know it.

I dunno why, but that Obama/Bill Cosby one is cracking me up. How long has that one been there? These pictures are so great!
