it sounds incredibly dangerous. you could seriously damage your lungs and send it into other people’s homes. and if any of your neighbor have young kids or asthma you could do some serious damage to them. you can go to a hardware store for bed bug spray. you could also call a professional. they are hard as he!l to get rid of but it can be done.

You really don’t need to go to those extremes, but it does take a lot of hard work to get rid of bed bugs.

You’ll need to wash everything you can get into a machine at at least 60 degrees, higher if the fabric will take it. Get carpets, curtains and rugs professionally cleaned and I’d chuck out the mattress.

I’m itching just thinking about it!

Please don’t do this. My relative once mixed the two in a apartment without my knowledge and i instantly couldn’t breathe and had to be admitted to the hospital. I got lucky and recovered but I heard of people permanently losing their sense of taste from exposure to bleach and ammonia

Mustard gas will probably kill them and you too. I once had bed bugs in an apartment I lived in. They are very hard to get rid of. You have to have them exterminated by a professional. They instructed us to bag up all of our clothes and bedding and wash them in very hot water. Then throw out your mattress ( i know it sucks). You may have to throw out your couches as well. Those things will torment your life. Get them exterminated asap because they spread easily.
