    You need to call an exterminator right away.

    Hi Tammy,


    Hire a professional immediately!!!


    These pests spread like crazy. The pro's have the staff, chemicals, training, experience, and a warranty. They know where to look and where and how to treat to kill them. They will come back and retreat if necessary until the bed bugs are gone.


    Let me give you a personal example: 2 years ago we went to the ocean for 1 week, on day 3 I had an itchy bite ridden arm and torso-the typical 3 bite pattern( affectionately known as breakfast, lunch, and dinner). I showed it to the management and they comfirmed an infestation-I thought it was only in the bed, but no, they were in the couch too.

    The management took all our clothes & luggage, and cleaned them at their expense.

    We were immediaately relocated in the resort. As for our unit, it was closed off and treated by the pro's, along with the units on each side of ours and the units above and below ours. It was an expensive problem for them.


    Don't mess around with home solutions, you might make the infestation worse if they are ineffective.


    Best to you.

    There is no home remedy that works.
