In brief: Very hard to do.

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.

bag. Seal bag & dispose of bag. Next, use a STEAM cleaner everywhere (every crack & crevice). Use a non-toxic spray after cleaning or consider using fossil shell dust. You may need to repeat this process more than once. Now with this said- this is a tough job – you might want to consider using an exterminator that specializes in bed bug removal.

In brief: Exterminator!

There are many "home remedies" for bed bugs, but their reliability is somewhat suspect.
In reality, it is worth spending some money to have the home professionally exterminated. If you do not rid the home of the bed bugs, they are very likely to come back.
