Bed bugs: Some professional exterminators use portable devices to raise the temperature of a room to a lethal temperature. All stages of bedbugs can be killed at 122 f (50 c). In some cases, you may have to throw out heavily infested items such as mattresses or couches.

Bed Bugs Are Bad.: Declutter entire bedroom & any other effected rooms. Check this site for instructions: http://treatmentforbedbugs.Com/ place all junk in tightly sealed plastic & dispose of it. Wash clothing, linens, towels in hot water. Dry on highest heat - then repeat. Place clean items in a sealed bag to prevent re-infestation.Steam clean what you can't place in drier. Vacuum everything using a disposable.
