      Put alcohol in a spray bottle and spray in the areas you see them. The can travel the outlets next thing you know they all over

      I went through the bed bug thing and it sucked. I just slept downstairs for a little while. I called an exterminator who did very well and he also suggested getting a cover for the mattress. Also make sure you check your bed frame because for me when i examined it myself thats where a lot of them were hiding so i immediately got the vacuum.

      Another thing...if throwing the mattress out and getting a good mattress cover aren't options right now, then steam cleaning the mattress often...maybe even daily helps. If you don't have access to that, then you can try baking soda and vacuuming your mattress daily. Good luck.

      Diametrious Earth helps. I survived this. Sorry for the bad spelling.

          @Emilys1482 if you do go this route I would suggest making sure it's food grade just in case you or any pets/children/others sleeping in bed who might accidentally ingest it will be safe. It seems to work a little better as well for some reason but maybe that's just my experience with it.

      Get a plastic mattress cover that zips up for your mattress & box spring. Zip it up then seal it with tape. Do not take it off for at least 18 months, they can live without "food" for that long.
