“Dear PoPville,

We are certain we have bed bugs! Not too many…yet. A couple live ones today but no other real signs except for a some bites that have been going on for the last few weeks.

Not sure if they’re coming from one of our next door neighbors, which are both group houses (with landlords that aren’t rolling in dough) or from our frequent travel. Could have come in with our dog from boarding or the dog park… But the origin doesn’t matter as much as the solution – except the neighbors aren’t going to pay to remediate based on our experiences (nor should they) so any solution that costs a lot and leaves us open to reinfestation seems silly.

We are planning on bagging the box spring and mattress, washing and drying the hell out of bedding, vacuuming, etc etc. Seems like a decent path to at least try… (more…)

The legal subdivision of Eckington spans from the Met Branch Trail along the east side, to Florida Ave at the south end, all the way to Rhode Island Ave on the north end. Technically, to the west it sprawls across North Cap to include the Florida/Rhode Island/North Cap triangle on the NW side. North Capitol Street is a defining physical boundary, in addition to being the edge of the NW/NE quadrant and thus, for data purposes, we’ll call that triangle the south side of Bloomingdale, and will stick to referring to the Eckington neighborhood as being in the NE quadrant.
