My desk lamp model GX7915 has gone bad, new bulb and won't work

How to get rid of bed bug
Three things will kill them naturally, heat (above 120 degree F), food grade diatomacious earth and permethrin spray.
Heat that high is hard to do alone, but you can contract (and I recommend you do based on your severity) a company to seal your outside doors and windows, and pump heat into your home for a few hours. This will kill all bedbugs in all stages of their life cycle. It takes a few hours at this heat to do so.
Diatomaceous earth is a powder that acts like concertina wire to pretty much all bugs. So the bugs have to physically come in contact with it. It is safe for mammals; you and your pet can eat the food grade level. You should dust the areas where there is the most bugs. I would dust around and in the beds, furniture and wherever else you suspect bugs. This will only kill the bugs that are moving. Eggs are safe. Plus, you cannot get the dust everywhere where the bugs can hide.
Permethrin is an oil extract from flowers. It is good against most arthopods and safe for mammals. The oil is diluted with water (I use hot or warm water) and applied by spraying. Depending on your spray applicator, you can spray into many places; however, it is only good for a about 24hrs. Direct contact is a must. It will kill bugs in all stages of life, but again, it must come in direct contact with them.
So to summarize, diatomaceous earth (DE) in conjuction with permethrin can wipe out a small, isolated infestation. If the bugs have moved to multiple places, heat is the best option as a whole-house solution as DE and Permethrin will not get into all the nooks and crannies like inside the walls and electrical outlets. These bugs can and do hide anywhere!
Kohler toilet leave black streaks and small black particles coming out of water holes under toilet bowl rim.
#K4421 Re black specks coming from rim jets (only). Me too. Looks like bits of rotting rubber. Water in tank is clear-no specks there. I suspect the small hose from fill valve to top of flush piston may be breaking down, as it has gone rigid and I'm afraid to squeeze it lest it shatter. First thing I'll try is replacing that hose, if I can find one. My daughter has same toilet but no "specks". With her toilet, it's the same small hose but the problem is it occasionally pops off at fill valve end. I can fix that with wire but when I find hose source, I'll buy two.
