    Spraying, like a pest control company does, is useless. My friend had this problem. She couldn't afford to have a company "bag" her house. She finally started using Diatomaceous Earth, sprinkled around the inside of the house, and vacuumed daily. It took some time - maybe 2 months - but she eventually got rid of them. Buy a duster to dispense the DE. Just remember not to inhale the dust as you could damage your lungs (don't make big dust clouds). Amazon sells the the duster for $7.99, and the DE. Be sure to buy "Food Grade" DE, and check the prices for your best deal as I don't know how much you will need. Probably not more than 5 or 10 pounds.

    Crossfire is what the current pros are using. You can order the spray and continue spraying more frequently!

    You can try this, but I would hire a professional!

    Bedbugs are so difficult to get rid of, if you're sure the steel cot is their hiding place, I would get rid of the steel cot and any bedding you can't wash and dry in a machine.
