Remove and wash all bedding, clothing, and linens in hot water and dry them on the highest heat setting.
Reduce clutter in your home, especially in the affected areas, as bed bugs can hide in cracks, crevices, and clutter.
Consider using pesticides designed specifically for bed bugs. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Seal any cracks or crevices in walls, baseboards, and furniture where bed bugs may hide. Repair any peeling wallpaper or loose wall panels.
After treatment, continue to monitor your home for signs of bed bugs. Regularly inspect your bedding, mattress seams, and furniture.
If your infestation is severe or persists after DIY treatments, it's advisable to hire a licensed pest control professional.
