The first thing you have to do is get all your sheets, blankets,and pillows,including any stuffed animals or anything that may be on the floor such as clothes and you need to wash everything in hot water and dry at a high heat. Make sure you vaccum really good around and under your sleeping area or if you have hardwood floors sweep and mop with soapy hot water. If you have any nightstands or tables near your bed they will need to be thouroughly cleaned and any items on them should be cleaned as well. This includes the drawers and items inside as well. After you have isolated all the bedding and all clothing or stuffed animals that could of possibly come in contact with the bedbugs be sure to get it out of the room but be cautious not to mix it in with other laundry until it has been laundered. If it is going to take several loads to wash it all, put it all in a big plastic bag while you are waiting to wash it so you do not spread them to any other areas of your home. After you have gotten all "contaminated" laundry out of your room and thoroughly cleaned the floors and furniture around your bed then you can spray.


The best pesticide I found was Raid bed bug killer its about $10.00 it is the one with the purple cap.That is the only one I've found that worked well. Be sure to spray everywhere you cleaned including your mattress thoroughly. You are probably going to have to repeat this cycle 3-4 times to completely get rid of them so dont get discouraged if you do all this and you still see some. They are super good hiders and the eggs they lay are so tiny you probably wont see them until they are hatched and start moving with is around 10 days or so. Also, after vacuuming you need to change the vacuum bag and be sure to throw the old one away outside of your house not in the kitchen trash. I've read that once you clean and spray you can get a mattress cover that zips up around your mattress but that will only work if your sure they are nowhere else. It takes time, but if your diligent they will eventually go away. Im sorry your going through this, but you should be able to get ahead of them with the steps I've listed, thats what we did.

Ridding bed bugs

Step 1
Vacuum every inch of the house.

Step 2
Wash your clothes, bed sheets, pillow cases, anything fabric with hot water. Dry with a high heat setting.


Step 3
Use a diatomaceous earth powder to kill the bed bugs. Its safer as its all natural.

Step 4
If certain items (bed, clothes) are very infested, throw them out. Mark them as bed bug infested so other people don't pick them up for themselves.

Repeat these steps every couple of weeks and you will be clear.
