infestation of mice, silverfish and bed bugs


Hi,
Recently I caught 5 mice (2 in one morning, whew!), and every morning I wake up I see new bitemarks on my body from what appear to be bedbugs. I also kill at least 2 silverfishes every day.
Can somebody take a look at photo http://pets.webshots.com/photo/2619991530103958996xasUzi
from my album http://community.webshots.com/album/566190762ndExfj
and positively identify the dead insect I found today as a bed bug? I am not 100% sure. My landlord - Capasso Realty who manage properties on Lexington St in Auburndale (Newton), MA have not been responsive. Given that what kind of remediation should I attempt with my limited skills and resources? Best regards, Joan

Pick up phone and call board of health. Unless infestation is due to your housekeeping habits, he will be ordered to remediate. I know rental costs are insane around there, but I'd say the hell with it and move, carefully sanitizing every object I carried out, and burn the bed and upholstered furniture. Life is too damn short, etc.

It is hard to say but it doesn't look like one unless it is a youngster. This is what an adult looks like...

And this shows them in various stages.
