MY wife had been bitten twice on one leg each within two weeks of another.Nasty wound is an understatement.She will forever have scars on each leg that are the size of half dollars.
She had thought she had been bitten on her stomach which the local hospital had misdiagnosed for a month.it was then they decided to do a biopsy after it had colonized into four groups.
She had to undergo intravenous treatments that consisted of three hours in the morning and three hours in the evening for one week for treatment of MRSA.A very nasty procedure when if caught early,a pill would have taken care of the problem.
The treatments were given in the emergency room of all places.
Many nurses have had it and they say it comes wit the job.
PS,when the wife was first bit,
we tore the house apart.We did anything and everything short of poisoning ourselves.
To no avail.
We tore the hose apart completely remodeling from top to bottom.
As I type,I have six bites under my armpit.Not to brag,our house is immaculate and I have become the bug Special Forces in our house.My next option is to line our closets with ceder.If anyone has a better idea,We would appreciate it.
PS,We live in West Texas,Thanks and sorry for the long spiel.

Thanks for the feedback, xarmydog!
I hear you, I hate pests and I hate the fact that they are such a pain in the behind to eliminate in houses made of wood and drywall. I’ve often contemplated lining all inner surfaces of my house with non-porous sheeting, just for avoiding situations like this.
