Some individuals have had success conducting their own exterminations by preparing an insecticide mixture of pyrethrins and fresh-water diatomaceous earth. At least one manufacturer produces a household insecticide D-20 with only 0.2% naturally derived pyrethrins and 1.0% Piperonyl Butoxide, which magnifies the pyrethrin’s effectivenes by 10 times. Natural pyrethrins are more expensive than many alternatives. The function of the pyrethrins is to stimulate the nervous system of the bugs so that the spasms will allow the diatomaceous earth to desiccate, puncture, and kill the bugs through mechanical action. Great care should be taken not to use products with salt-water diatomaceous earth or heat-treated diatomaceous earth (the common industrial forms), which can damage the lungs of any mammal (dogs, cats, or humans) which inhale it (due to its extreme sharp crystalline edges), and has also been known to cause cancer. Fresh-water diatomaceous earth, however, is commonly used to deworm cats, dogs, and humans, and is considered as safe as table salt. What is sold as food-grade diatomite generally contains very low percentages of crystalline silica.

Bedbugs are not coldweather insects and cannot tolerate temperatures below freezing for extended periods of time. Others have used fruit and vegetable insecticides, comprising a mixture of pyrethrins and canola oil, which are usually safe for humans and most pets (aside from fish). While not a permanent fix, spraying rubbing alcohol should kill bedbugs on contact.

In addition, since bedbugs normally disperse, treatment of a bed or mattress is insufficient to eradicate an infestation.

Synthetic pyrethroids are modified versions of a natural chemical, pyrethrin, isolated from chrysanthemums.

You really should call in a professional exterminator…
if you try to rid them yourself you’re probably going to leave some unhatched eggs behind only to be reinfested again.
