Is there a fumigator to get rid of bedbugs? Does anyone have advice to get rid of them?

My understanding from reading about it online and various other news sources is that you need to call a professional to get rid of those.

They are resistant to anything that you can use over the counter, and you won't be able to kill them by yourself.

Professionals can use a stronger poison.

Good luck. (10/31/2008)

You can use a powder that will dehydrate them if you are doing it yourself, see: But the reason why sites recommend professionals is their experience. The longer you wait, the more they multiply. (11/01/2008)

My daughter had a terrible time with bedbugs in NY. She had an exterminator, but they came back. She finally found a spray on line that worked. But, she also got rid of her mattress and bedframe. They live in the cracks of the walls and floor or furniture. You can cover them outside with black plastic and hope for a period of heat to kill them. She finally moved to LA. She left all her things outside in the yard and sprayed them before bringing it in and hasn't had a problem since.

My best friend just went through this one and it was awful. You need the professional, it will be done over a month to 6 weeks in once a week treatments, I think it was around $800. You need to start washing every piece of cloth in your house in at least 140 degree water, and then bagging it in plastic to protect it from the little buggers. That means bedding, clothing, window treatments, etc. I know this is a major pain, good luck getting rid of them. (11/03/2008)

Wondercide gets rid of bedbugs, just spray it on your mattress and under the bed. It is great for other pest problems to and it is total safe for you, your family, and pets (even kittens and newborns). (11/22/2008)
