I work in a scientific computing group on the CONNJUR project, providing open-source software for NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectroscopy.

Check out some of my work on github:

  • NMRPyStar: an API for accessing archived NMR data files in the NMR-Star format used by the BMRB.

  • Miscue-js: validation of JSON files to deal with obnoxious and tricky interoperability issues such as number overflows and duplicate keys

Some technologies that I've used and like:

  • Python
  • git
  • Javascript
  • Haskell
  • Java
  • MySQL

comment What is the proper, safe, and effective way to apply diatomaceous earth?
I think this answer would be improved by supporting the claims that are made, especially: 1) that bedbugs "go dormant if they detect control", and 2) the effect of humidity on DE.

comment How do I locate where bed bugs hide?
@Tester101 That is not a reasonable solution: 1) in many homes (such as mine), it is not possible to do so without calling in professionals with specialized equipment, which is extremely expensive; 2) the heat may not penetrate to the bugs' hiding places, which are often thermally sheltered locations; 3) such high heat may actually damage the structure or objects inside it.

@TheEvilGreebo I'm asking about dealing with the bugs that are outside the mattress cover. I'm not worried about the ones inside, since they're trapped. I've updated the question.

Thank you for the response! Just for a bit more clarification -- what was your method of application? I'm not sure what's meant by "squirt", I though it was a powder? And for the bed question: I'd heard it's good to put it directly on a bed, in case there any bedbugs crawling on the bed. So assuming the mattresses are already covered, is it worthwhile to put DE on the bed?

I've read through the FAQ again. It seems to be completely on-topic as far as I can tell.
