  • Are you a renter? The landlord could be responsible for a professional fumigation, and I'd see if your things are covered by renter's insurance.

  • Bed bugs also live in your baseboards, headboards or anywhere there are crevices. They don't strictly dwell in matresses & blankets. We had them @ our old place (there when we moved in apparently). We started over w/the kids stuff since that's where they were... Maybe we went overboard but our 3yo dd's legs looked horrible & we didn't want to chance taking them w/us!

  • get a spray for them.. talk to your doctor about getting rid of them.. and definitely have the landlord take care of any expenses.
