I have since purchased a different tent from amazon with the same positives qualities as this one, but its skeleton poles are sturdier, it is a bit easier to fold up, and it costs less. (Genji Sports Self Expanded Screen Tent)
Update: 3 nights sleeping in this tent atop my bed. Not a single bite.
I had been sleeping covered in clothes and sweating to keep the bed bugs at bay...but at least I was sleeping.
I tucked my pants into my socks, and even wore gloves to sleep in. Still, I'd get bit on the wrists and neck and face.
Upon waking I squirted the bugs with accelerated hydrogen peroxide. I learned from experience that accelerated hydrogen peroxide kills bed bugs. I'm not sure if regular H2O2 kill bed bugs, but accelerated H2O2 definitely kills them within 60 seconds. It's also much safer than rubbing alcohol (alcohol is very flammable, and lots of houses have burned down because of people spraying their houses down with alcohol).
Anyway, I was wearing all those clothes, even in the hot summer nights. Until this tent arrived.
It's much bigger than I thought it would be. I have a queen sized bed and this extends past all sides a bit, so I imagine this tent is king sized. It's also quite tall, so that's good.
Last night was the first night I tried it.
I slept nude just to find out for sure (daring, I know, but knowledge is power, and sometimes you have to risk torture to get new knowledge).
Not a single bite despite being naked with no covers. Just this tent.
When I woke, still inside the tent I could see bed bugs crawling on the outside of the mesh, longing to torment me.
Easy to spot the big ones as always because they are big, but now it's easy to spot the tiny babies crawling around because they are light-colored against the fine black mesh.
Thousands, maybe tens of thousands are suffering from bed buds and discussing how to really solve the problem.
This is the answer, and none of them are talking about it.
Only reason I found out about it was because I searched for onesies pajamas on Amazon and eventually saw a bed bugs pajamas item, but it didn't have a strong review profile. In one of the reviews, I think Todd mentioned this solution, which I thought was brilliant.
I'm paranoid about letting bed bugs inside the tent though. It arrived unzipped, so I quickly zipped it up, and I unzipped it only briefly to enter before sleeping, after being sure I had everything I needed (phone, night mask, remote for the A/C, etc.). I entered quickly, thinking that a single opportunistic bed bug would enter with me, leading to an entire population explosion inside my cocoon. Probably paranoid, because it would take two bed bugs to make a population, and they would have to be opposite sexes.
Going in nude was actually a good idea but an accidentally good idea. Reason it's a good idea? Because if you go into the tent with clothes, there's a good chance there will be some bed bugs camping in your PJs, and you just brought them inside your encampment. I did not shower but I probably should've.
If this tent breaks in two weeks, I'll be happy to buy another. Every two weeks. It's worth it. That would be something like $120 per month. I spent $60 on this. Definitely had spent more on other products to fend off the bed bugs.
Of course, it will probably not break after two weeks. It may last a month or several months.
There appears to be two straps attached to the tent's carrying pouch that are for backpack style carrying. One of them was already torn from the bottom of the pouch when it came out of the shipping "box." The tear seems to have caused the whole seam of the bag to start to come undone. I put a few safety pins in and I think they'll keep but I shouldn't have to do anything to a brand-new product. I don't mind too much since I don't plan on using the backpack straps anyway but the pouch seems to be too cheap and poorly made to withstand anything more than delicate use. I'll return and change this if it turn out the tent is just as flimsy as its bag is, but it looks a bit better built at a glance.
