I am currently in the unenviable position of dealing with a possible bed bug infestation. I saw one walking across my stairs in broad daylight three days ago and my life has been turned upside down. Besides the obvious difficulties and expenses I'm incurring in preparing my home for the exterminators I am very concerned with my ongoing breach of the first precepts. I recall Ven. Thanissaro recommending a passage to be chanted from the suttas or commentary in such a situation. Any thoughts are appreciated as I am deeply disturbed by the situation but have a young family that I am duty bound to protect. Mettaya

Sorry if i have insulted someone with my previous post, it was not my intension.
Also it wasn't addressed specifically to you but more to old topic about fleas where many participants dont show any mercy to insects and other animals(mices), and admit that thay kill or would kill them if thay disturb their lives in any way.
I dont know how big is your problem with bed bugs and what's like to take care of and protect your family/ children so i realy dont want to judje your decisions.
