This is a bit embarrassing for me. I lived in a cheap complex on the south end of town, near Harrison HS. After about a year of being there, I started noticing these itchy bites, and it was summer, so I assumed it was just mosquitoes. Then, winter came, and I was still getting them everywhere. I went to a dermatologist and he told me they were bed bug butes.

I went to the apartment manager, and he sprayed my apartment, but not the rest in the building. They were gone for about a week, but they were back rapidly. I moved out as soon as my lease was up and had to leave everything behind. I brought literally nothing from my old life to my new home. I've lived here (Centennial & GOG) for about a year now, and these same bites are coming back! There are bed bugs here, too. I don't know what I can do.

I've heard from some friends that still live on the south side that a lot of people there have them, is that true? Does anyone know of anything I can do to avoid them?
