  • we just found out we have them too. you need to tell the landlord and have them come spray asap. anything that is fabric like clothes that can be washed should be washed in hot water and dried for like an hour on the hottest setting. heat kills them! anything else like stuffed animals should be double or triple bagged so the bugs suffocate. you should get plastic covers for your mattresses, they are like big plastic bags that will trap the bugs and they will die. vaccuum around base boards and your carpet. and before you go to bed take a shower and when you get out put perfumed lotion on, the bugs dont like the smell. good luck! we have done all this and iv only seen one bug in about a week.
