Answer by ThinkTink
My God-They are the worst things to have. I got them from a used mattress I purchased. It was a nightmare. A thorough cleaning of the premises will make bed bug control efforts much more effective. Strip all beds down to the bare sleeping surface. Bedding, sheets, blankets, comforters, covers, and shams should be washed in very hot water. Very hot water (120+degrees) will kill the bed bugs. Personal items (stuffed animals, soft toys, blankets) should be removed, cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, and bagged in plastic for several weeks or more. Hot Steam from an electric steamer is the next step in fighting bed bugs. After vacuuming, use a steam machine to get in all of the cracks, crevices, carpet and even on the bedroom furniture and mattresses. Anywhere you think they may be hiding. This will ensure that you got most of them prior to final treatment
To get rid of bed bugs effectively, you’ve got to hit them hard where they’re hiding–in cracks and crevices. Spray Bug Patrol and apply Fossil Shell Dust on wall voids and under baseboards and in cracks and crevices, soak the areas thoroughly. VACUUM, VACUUM, VACUUM & STEAM EVERYTHING!
Getting rid of bed bugs is not easy. Inspect the treated room again in two weeks. Do a thorough inspection (especially cracks and crevices) and continually treat any area where bed bugs are persisting or where they have moved. If its a severe case-hire an exterminator

Change the object infected. Kerosene can be of help by sprinkling it on the affected object. Maintain good clean environment all the time.
