  • Wash everything in hot water and put the mattress outside in the hot sun.

  • I would say at least several hours to a whole day per side.

  • I think if they are real bad you need an exterminator, they get in the tiniest places they say. Good luck. It seems to be an epidemic, I heard on the news they're even in movie theaters now.

  • Took this off a website.........I would get a professional!

    HOW CAN I CONTROL AN INFESTATION?

    We highly recommend that you seek assistance from a professional pest control company.

    Controlling an infestation requires very detailed work and much moving (and disassembly) of furniture. Careful inspections must be completed in conjunction with non-chemical controls (such as vacuuming, and steam
    treatments) and insecticide treatments. The insecticides available are commercial products requiring special equipment and training, that is not readily available in over-the-counter products.

    For additional information about control measures, please see Controlling bed bug infestations: Information for the Pest Management Professional (United States).

  • I found some info that might help...pull the bed and headboard away from the wall. Smear the bed frame legs with petroleum jelly. Buy extra vacuum bags. Do a daily, thorough vacuum of the seams in the mattress, the box spring, the headboard, baseboard, and floor. After each vacuuming, seal the used vacuum bag in plastic and discard. Launder bedding and clothing in hot water and dry on hottest setting. Repair all cracks and crevices, glue down any loose wall paper. If you have Sol-U-Guard Botanical or Sol-U-Mel spray the mattress and surroundings with it. Be vigilant because bedbug eggs hatch in 6-17 days. Also, look up "Diatomaceous Earth" on the internet for a solution for a natural insecticide. I hope this helps - good luck!
