    If you are determined to get rid of bed bugs yourself, without hiring an exterminator. You must follow below mentioned points.
    •  It isn't enough to clean the mattresses and launder the sheets.
    • Furniture should be overturned and cleaned.
    • Carpeting, wood molding, door jambs, picture frames, and closets should be inspected as well.
    • Bed bugs can hide behind loose wallpaper, in the crevices between carpets and walls, behind outlet covers, and inside light fixtures, smoke detectors, and even clocks.
    • Removable, washable items can be laundered in very hot water.
    • For those areas or items that cannot be laundered, smaller items can be wrapped in plastic and set in a hot place or in direct sunlight.
    • The key is to raise the temperature to at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours to kill the eggs and the bugs.
    • Vacuuming and steam cleaning may also be done, but any bags or canisters should be thrown away or emptied outside of the area immediately to prevent another infestation.
    • Unfortunately, it's very hard to find all bed bugs and all bed bug eggs; that's why the best method of removing bed bugs, however, is through a professionally handled treatment.
    If you are hiring a professional bed bug exterminator, be careful!
    • Many companies that only specialize in how to kill bedbugs aren't as qualified as full-service pest control companies.
    • Your best bet is to find an established pest control service company that has been in service for at least five years and you might also ask around and see if anybody you know or look at review sites to see if there are recommendations for any specific pest control services.
    • Also, make sure the pest control company you choose is certified in your state.
    • Exterminators can be pretty expensive; expect to pay between $250 to $1,000 per room.
    • You'll also want to make sure you choose pest control companies that will make follow up visits these are usually necessary for bed bug elimination.
