Bed bugs will spread deep into your mattresses, in couch cushions, and in areas where it's hard to reach. The professional pest extermination company will come in and treat all areas of the house, killing the bed bugs you have in the darkest deepest crevices.
They can examine your mattresses to determine if the treatment will be sufficient or if you should throw them out and have the house treated.
All of the bedding, linens, clothes and other fabrics in the house should be washed with hot water, and dried on the highest heat setting to kill the bed bugs. If you think some of your items are too delicate for this type of washing, take them to the dry cleaners with the luggage. Bed bugs could be living in dressers and closets.
If the temperature outside is consistently below freezing, you can put potentially contaminated items, like clothing and mattresses, out in the cold for at least 48 hours. Use a plastic cover on the items if you're worried about snow or rain. This will freeze the insects to death. Professional treatment should still be used though.
If you don't want the bed bugs to bite any longer, and you think you have an infestation that has gotten out of control, call the pest control professionals in your area. You can get rid of the bugs before they spread to other areas of the home, or before you carry them out of your home to other living spaces.
