  • You need to get rid of everything soft and cushioned - furniture, stuffed animals, pillows, carpets etc. Then you really do need to invest in the professionals, bedbugs can live in walls and will come back very easily, it's just not worth not getting rid of them.

  • First of all, do you live in attached housing? Like sharing walls with anyone else?

    Because if you want to get rid of them, then all of your attached neighbors need to do it at the same time, otherwise they just come back from your neighbors house.

    I'd call in professionals too, if you have to wait for them to come then you can at least avoid getting chewed up at night by completely cleaning your bedding, putting plastic over your mattress, and putting vaseline on the feet of your bed (it's hard for them to climb up).
