  • Maybe try da cleaning. I don't think they go away 100% though, same with dust mites.

  • best way: professional exterminator. If you rent, the landlord needs to do the whole building.

  • I've heard sprinking Borax around the house is a good way to get rid of bugs. It's supposed to dry them up and it's bio-degradable too.

  • They don't like heat....a steam cleaner should be good for keeping them out of mattresses & carpets, etc.

  • For bedbugs, I would definitely hire an exterminator.
