  • Plastic wrap mattress works. Get a Dustbuster type personal vacuum and zap any strays if you see them. Then just empty into toilet and flush. Done, gone, over. I found out the hard way. No more problem for me.

  • My house had so many bed bugs it made us all paranoid. I still don't trust my parent's bed because I saw one and my mom constantly checks my sister's bed and bed frame. I said screw it and abandoned beds in general and as weird as it is, started sleeping on a hammock, but ever since making the change I no longer find any, or feel itchy in my room, and I can easily wash it.
