In brief: Pesticides, vacuum.

Eradication of bed bugs frequently requires a combination of pesticide and non-pesticide approaches.
Pesticides include pyrethroids, dichlorvos and malathion. Resistance to pesticides has increased a lot over time, so mechanical approaches such as vacuuming up the insects and heat treating or wrapping mattresses have been recommended.
