  • Throw your mattress away and get the bug guys to come in and spray your house. They can be in the cracks of the walls.

  • You can get some spray from a Purina store. But you have to spray every month.

  • You have to call the exterminator...If you vaccum your bed that wont work because the eggs stick to the mattress and you would have to scrub it with one of those mettle brushes...You may be able to save the mattress if you call the exterminator as soon as they are open but most likley it will need to be tossed. Hope you figure something out that wont cost to much good luck!

  • Anything & everything in your house that can be washed, has to be, in good hot water. Multiple times, if they're that bad. Carpets need to be cleaned well, maybe more than once. An exterminator needs to be called. You need to throw out your mattress & boxspring and get a new one - but before you get the new one, put your bed legs in jars filled partway with something like kerosene (the bugs can't climb the jars, and any on your bed that try to crawl off will be killed by the gas). A good exterminator can help with all of that. But you will never get rid of them on your own if it's that bad.
