In brief: You can only get

Them to stop by getting rid of them. Declutter entire bedroom/ home.
Place all junk in tightly check this site for instructions: http://treatmentforbedbugs.Com/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.
