i had bed bugs, OP.
literally exterminating doesnt really help. They are tough fuckers. You have to literally spend your nights looking for and slaughtering the little fucks. Find their hiding places, find their nests, wreck havoc to their homes. In a couple ofweeks they'll know not to mess with you. Like this literally works, lmao it sounds ridiculous. Throwing out your bed and buying a new one cant hurt either

Don't bed bugs spread quickly? By now they've already infested your house a shit ton. Solution: burn your house down or get vamanos pest.

i've had them had to call in a specialist 2 times to get rid of them, they just go around spraying your home and you have to leave for at least 4 hours in my case. did alot of vacuuming too while I waited them to die out just to make sure.
>>
check basboards by the carpet, the like to hide underneath carpet, the most satisfying thing though is getting a hairdryer to put them in panic mode and they try to get away from the heat by revealing themselves up from undernearth the carpet, but once they get in direct contact with a hairdryer at a certain high temperature they just die, so you know throwing every piece of cloth you own into a dryer couldn't hurt either, bag that shit up though,
>>
you guys dont understand, your bed can be perfectly clean. These fuckers get into the tightest places
>>
>>571581257
This guy is right. Lowes has them at the pesticides. A big back for like $4.

Vacuum the shit though, you don't want to be inhaling too much.

You'll need a new filter for your vacuum when your done.
>>
>>571581257
Fucking this!

>>Put DE powder at the edges of any surface you've seen them on.

>>If your bed is on legs, fill four plastic cups with DE and put one under each leg. As long as your bed isn't against a wall or the sheets aren't touching the floor, there is absolutely no way those bastards can reach your bed.

>>If your bedroom has a rug or carpeting, get rid of it. Wood flooring is like a desert to these things. You can spot them MUCH easier moving across plain wood than through your carpet.

>>Of course, you still have to get them out of your bed if they're already there. If your bed is covered in little red spots, it's probably too late to salvage the mattress and you have to throw the whole thing out.

Keep in mind that unless you have a lot of money to spare and a place to stay while your house gets fumigated, it could be years before you actually get rid of them. I've been fighting bedbugs in my home for a year and a half now. Still find a few crawling out of cracks in the floor here and there. But they can't get to my bed, which severely cuts down on their food supply.
>>
A) Wear long sleeves and pants to bed and don't get bitten for two years.
B) DDT

>>571583381
Moving doesn't always help. I moved out of a bedbug, infested home, throwing out almost all my personal possessions, and the fuckers still showed up at my new apartment in a couple months. I think they're actually coming from my workplace, which happens to be a ghetto mall with a history of pest problems, so there's not a whole lot in my control there.

These could help keep them out of the bed (they cant climb upside down) and you could easily make something like this out of cardboard. But seeing as though they're already in the bed, I doubt it'll solve the problem entirely
>>
>>571581106
get a hotel. then stay their while you slowing eat poison until you get used to it. gradually increase the amount. haha lol :D

Do it until your blood is full of the shit. Go home let them feed on your poison blood.

profit???? hahah little fuckers
>>
I work in a hotel, if we get a room that has bedbugs we just get rid of the mattress, theyre too resilient to just try to spray/bomb.

And theyre bugs, they dont just spawn from nothing, they have to be brought in somehow, being clean/dirty have nothing to do with it.
>>
Bleach the fuckers
Drag your mattress out into the sun like they used to do in the 1900's
Vacuum up the dead

thats it
>>
Here's a tip for whom it may concern. OFF brand aerosol green caps fit snuggly onto those little bug fogger cans, making them directional.
>>
>>571581106
They don't like semen. The next few times you jerk it, splooge in a can or something.
Lather it all over your body and voila, no more bed bug bites.
They won't leave the first night, but jizz crusts in your bed will drive them away from your bed.

If you really want to be effective, start jizzing all over your house, put it in your mop water etc..

Actually you could boil a pot full of water and cum. The vapours will spread around the house leaving sperm all over. The bugs will migrate to your neighbours in about 3 days.

Trust me, I've done this myself and several other friends.
>>
>>571584109
to clarify, we still bomb the room, but after we get rid of the mattress and bedding
>>
>>571582742
Yeah I bought a 30 LB bag of D earth and covered my yard and outside of my house in it as well as the entire underside of my bed. Using steam works well too from what I've heard but getting it in the cracks they're in is troublesome. It has nothing to do with being clean these fucking things are like fleas they can come in on your pets, or if you have a friend sleep over and brings them in their luggage.
>>
>>571581106
Get food grade Dama. Earth and sprinkle err where
>>
These fuckers are literally indestructible. I've dumped pure bleach in a cup and put one of them in there, and it swam around for a good 15 minutes before drowning. They also lay eggs everywhere eg. on your clothes, in your sheets, on the carpet, in the walls. If you see even one bedbug, good chance is your house is forever unclean. If you want to see them in action, consider pulling an all-nighter with some night-vision goggles. Me and a friend turned off the lights at midnight and watched all night for them, and we finally got some sightings at around 4:00 of bedbugs crawling out of a crack in the wall. They literally wait until any sane person would be dead asleep to come out and make your life miserable.

You're best off moving to a new place and bagging up everything you take with you so it doesn't infect the new place.
>>
I had them but luckily i was able to stay at my dads house for about a month so they ended up starving
>>
>>571584045
There actually is a type of pill you can take that makes your blood poisonous to bedbugs and other insects after a while.

Been meaning to look into it. I imagine that's how a supervillian deals with mosquitoes.

Heat does the trick. Dryer on high for the sheets, blankets, etc... Plastic cover over mattress. Smother the buggers :)
>>
DDT
>>
>>571583842
This. Million times this.
Fighting those fucking buggers yourself will drive you nuts. Don't try to get rid of them by yourself, ESPECIALLY if you have a real infestation (many adults able to reproduce).
Some exterminators will provide a guarantee that you won't have any bedbugs for at least a year, so try to look for one of those.

Good luck.

You have to super heat your home. Higher guys who know what they are doing. You have to heat your place at 135 F for about 8 hours.

You will have to remove all stuff that can get damage, open up all covers to your wall plugs and lights and things like that.

This is how you kill them off, and people are fucking stupid, you don't get bed bugs from having a messy place.

They are super easy to catch if someone you live next to or come in contact has them. They also breed like crazy.
>>
>>571585991
get rekt faggot. they can happen to anyone you stupid fuck. doesn't necessarily have to do with being dirty or poor. kill yourself
>>
>>571581669
You might still be able to get some depending on where you are, but try lots of green bean leaves. The bugs are attracted to the leaves and get impaled on the tiny barbs, all medieval-like. Google.

upboating the recommendations for an exterminator. diy doesn't work.

i had them before. shit sucked. worst two weeks of my life.

other things:
dry all your clothes on high and then bag them.
diatomaceaous earth works slowly and can be messy.
hot shot pest strips can be used for electronics etc but you'll have to bag them outside for a month. that shit is toxic so don't do this in your house.
i don't think those bed leg things work. the bugs are probably hiding in your box spring anyway

good luck man
>>
I had them and got rid of them with water. Buy or rent a power steamer and STEAM THE LIVING HELL out of everything in your room. Every nook, cranny and hole. Under your bed, the seams of your bed, EVERYTHING. I spent two days steaming my room and got rid of them that way.
>>
Remove all electric and switch plates and get an exterminator to spray everything including inside the walls.

Your bed is trash. Your furniture is trash. Everything fabric needs to go to the laundromat.

If even 2 eggs survive they come back.

They actually almost did die out in the 1950's. Then they've been exploding out of nowhere in the last ten years and show no signs of stopping. They could exist in 1/3 of American households by 2025.

Burn it. By "it", I mean everything you possess, including clothes and body hair. Bedbugs are like Jews, only fire kills them, and they won't leave until you get rid of everything of value you own.

>>571586239
Never lie on an old mattress. If you move into a house, make sure it's fucking clean.
No wonder you smelly fucks have Ebola now.
>>
This is what I did, cause Im a cheapfag. They attack at night generally so just get a single color bed sheet (white, yellow, blue) and lay there while you watch TV or fap to gay shit on /b/ and once you feel the itch! BAM, get out, turn on the light and hunt the fucker down, he's just bit you and they can't run away too fast. Now, this will take a while so have patience but its effective and even fun. I actually didn't even kill them, I collected them in a jar and watch them die after a few days, its awesome.
>>
>>571581106
Hah hah you're fucked brother. If it's in your house, you'll have to call someone to lock it up and then heat it up. After that you'll have to redo the drywall because all that comes off.
>>
Something to keep in mind is that if you do manage to keep them off your bed, they'll start showing up in really weird places when they get desperate. After I kept them off my bed for a good 4 months, I found them trying to set up camp under my PC keyboard. They follow your ion trails, so they chase spots you spend a lot of time at.

Bed bugs inject analgesic into the skin as they bite so you don't feel them, you fucking moron.
The only thing you'll ever feel is them walking on you, if they're ever stupid enough to do that, which they won't.

Drink a bunch of anti-freeze, it's semi-poisonous to humans but it's deadly to bed bugs, this will wipe out their colony. Do this, film it and post to 4chan so we can watch.
>>
>>571581106
if you can afford it get an exterminator and make sure you get the guarantee (if you find a bug after they exterminate they will spray/fog again)

Even if you line the floors with DE the ones already in your mattress can still live.

i got rid of bedbugs OP. i live in ahuge apt complex where i still occasionally get aroamer from my neighbors but they dont live here anymore.

1. buy the $20 bedbudg gasbombs from home depot and clear your room out for the 2 hours as per the instructions. then:
2. kill the ones in your mattress with the $15 bedbug spray you can get at homedepot. focus on the nooks and crannies underneath the corner seams, you should beable to see the bugs and the blood/poop they leave on your mattress.
3. wrap the mattress after cleaning it with the plastic mattress covers you can get at target for $10. the cloth ones wont work since they can renest on top of those. you need the plastic ones.
4. spray the corners of your walls near the floor wherethere are nooks. they can hide in the walls and this kills them. spray every couple of weeks.
5. spray inside any furniture near your bed where you an find evidence of them.
6. throw your sheets and blankets in the drier for ten minutes to kill any bugs, then do your laundry normally.

and thats how i got rid of bedbugs.

Enjpy your six month war of attrition, cleaning and spraying toxic chemicals everywhere.
I know, it's what it took for me to beat them. But I did, and you can too.
Capture every one you see and torture it slowly for me, anon. use a needle you heat up with a candle and tweezers to hold it, or a syringe that you stuff them in and pull the plunger back to fuck with the air pressure. But make them suffer.
Then microwave the bodies and throw them away in a sealed plastic bag.
Kill them all, anon. No mercy.
>>
>>571588331
ok that's enough dude.

>>571587020

like I said, feel the itch, I didn't say feel the bite moron! The little fuckers can't escape if you're using my patented method. Shit, sometimes you can just predict them coming after laying in bed with the lights off for about 10 minutes, they come to bite your ass and you launch a preemptive attack, they're easy to see wiht light colored sheets and thats it, game over for them.
>>
1. Get an exterminator. It's near impossible to solve this on your own. Make sure the guy is reliable though (try Angieslist), because $1,000 isn't fun to spend on something like this.
2. DE won't get rid of them all together, but it will definitely help.
3. Dry clothes and put them in a bag. Dry shoes (yes, shoes) separately because clothes can get dirty.
4. STEAM EVERYTHING!!!
5. Spraying rubbing alcohol also can help, but this obviously should be done in moderation because of strong fumes.
6. Really the only method I didn't use was superheating the house, but only because I haven't heard about it.
7. When all else fails, commit suicide. I wouldn't blame you. I've had those spawns of Satan for months and they can drive you fucking insane.
>>
>>571581857
they infest quickly to places where other creatures inhabit.
If you're in your bedroom alot, they won't leave unless they climb onto your clothes.
Which is how they spread.
>>
>>571581106
I've been battling them for months now. Buy a powder to put in your elctric outlets and shit, buy bedliners, the plastic ones, and buy a strong poison at your local supplier, and get ready to fight a war of attrition for months.

These fuckers are extremely difficult to rid, and you'll probably be spraying for months, like I am. It's a fucking nightmare.

Don't squash them right away though, they smell like stinkbugs. Put em in a bag and torture each one for a minimum of 5 minutes, that's like 3 hours to a bedbug
Keep touching their genitals, leg tips and antenna to the hot needle anon. Make it hurt.
Also, you need to throw all your clothes in the dryer every day before you leave to go anywhere, and leave your shoes by the door, or you could spread them to someone else.
I lost the love of my life that way.
Make them pay for it, kill them by inches.

Bed bugs should be treated like an STD. My friend had a bad infestation and didn't tell anyone, next thing I know I find two of them crawling on me when I got home. I was so paranoid I fumigated my room anyway. Moral of the story, don't invite people over. It'll only spread the vermin around and you'll ruin many lives
>>
>>571589601
Borax is the best pest killer.
Mix it with syrup and put it in the middle of a fire ant pile.
Kills all the fire ants.
Same with termites, bedbugs, cockroaches, generally anything that likes sugar.
So feminist also
>>
Also, once your apartment is spic and span, get yourself some roaches. Roaches are predators too, they hunt down bedbugs and eat their eggs.
>>
>>571581106
only surefire way to get rid of the infestation right here

and you dont have to pay an exterminator

if its one room, close the door (better to do this to the entire house to make sure theyre all dead)

crank up the heater. you want the temp to be 120-130f

leave it this way for 4-6 hours (make sure you remove anything that could be sensitive to heat)

make sure you start the time after temp is well into the 100s

this is the only surefire way ive found to kill the entire infestation.
even chemical/pesticide solutions don kill them all, or the eggs. heat does
>>
>>571590015
bedbugs drink blood. they dont give a fuck about borax-laced sugar
>>
>>571581106

Has anyone gotten over the anxiety of having them? I don't have them, but I get anxious as fuck about things. I keep thinking that if I ever find one I'll freak out despite the fact that I probably didn't notice they were there before and was fine. I'm pretty good about handling work stress, etcetera, but for some reason bug infestations freak me out (individual bugs don't even really scare me).
>>
>>571588607
That insecticide also makes kids retarded and wipes out wildlife, but whatever. Also, there wasn't nearly as much international travel back then, and the places that bedbugs reemerged from were... wait for it... cities like NYC with massive international travel.
>>
>>571590015
you mean boric acid?

boric acid only works on insects with chewing mouthparts, not piercing mouthparts

the whole rumor about it destroying the wax on their shells/wearing away the joints and dehydratin them isnt true

>Assuming I meant they eat sugar.
I meant the borax killing them faggot.

You make a carbon dioxide trap using water sugar yeast, put them in a bowl and put borax in it, the bed bugs are attracted to the carbon dioxide release of the yeast (the same chemical we release that attracts them).
They climb into the bowl and can't die when the borax gets on them.

>>571590527
No borax,
It works when eaten by most bugs because it destroys their insides.
And that isn't a myth.

useless on bedbugs that have piercing mouth parts since they'll only feed on a live host

>>571590429
No, and it gets 50X worse once you have them. Yiou keep checking the bed and the floor and most of all the walls and ceiling every time you think you see movement, which is constantly.
It doesn't really lessen until you're sure they're gone, but I went to a girl's place and there was one on the ceiling and I flipped out, I had to kill it right away and then I had to get out of there.
I took off all my clothes before I got in my car and drove home naked, them in a garbage bag, and threw that in the dryer when I got back, spraying down the entire car with poison right after a long, hot shower that covered every inch of me.
Protip: always have a second pair of clothes in a trashbag with you when you go somewhere new, especially motels and apartment buildings. You can shower, jump into your bag clothes and head right out the door, burn or bag your old ones.

Thank GOD(s) those fucking things don't have wings.

dump a bunch of cochroaches in your house, they eat bedbugs.
>>
Inn all seriousness, a spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol will kill bedbugs within seconds. The other thing that worked in my place was poison called Bedlam Plus, kind of pricey at $26 a can, but well worth the good nights of sleep. Pro tip: spray in grid patterns. Use the alcohol to kill the ones you see, and bedlam every 6-8 days will do the rest. This assumes you will, or have already thoroughly searched and destroyed hives that may be lurking in places like power outlets, bed seams, anything hung on the walls, and any curtains or blinds.

You seem very upset.

You're right my bad, it is boric acid mixed into it.

i survived an infestation and i'm stronger now because of it.
it also helped that i moved out of bed bug capital of the world, queens nyc, to the west coast where there isn't so much of a problem.

>>571592438
nope i'm just calling you out on your fuckup
>>
>>571592228
Until they intermingle and you have flying bed bug hybrids

God bless us all

>>571592438
i thought the same thing when i first bought boric acid..i dunno how that rumor started.

when i moved into my new house it was vacan for a while. roaches EVERYwhere

boric acid and this stuff killed them all off. i never see any roaches or ants

shit works wonders

>>571591728
Fucking this

I had them and I couldn't fucking sleep at night because of the paranoia

I'm the guy that posted the "anxious" post.

And despite that, I also wonder why they're so distressing once you've found you've had them. I'd think that after a few nights of sleeping with them you'd be like "well, I had them and didn't know it and was fine". I even think they look and act something like mosquitos without wings, and I get bit by those all the time and don't really freak out about them. Don't you eventually "rationalize" your way through it?

>higher guys who know what they're doing

kek
>>
>>571593386
i would guess its because you start worrying if it'll get worse, make you sick/transmit a disease, etc

not to mention its disgusting
>>
>>571592893

I put boric acid on my baseboards years ago as a preventative measure and never got roaches. I did find some grain beetles but they were all dead, maybe it was the powder.

I'm thinking of doing it again but I don't want to breathe the shit in or do it crudely - is there a good way to dust without getting the stuff in your lungs or all over the place? I wore a mask last time and used a turkey baster, but there's got to be a better way to spread it.
>>
>>571593386
bed bugs need to feed to reproduce. when you're getting bit, your problem is just getting worse.
>>
>>571593386
I did that at first
Then they actually spread to my girlfriend's house on my clothes
and I couldn't stand the idea of that ever happening to anyone again
So I just outright hated them and couldn't stand that they'd made me this potectially ostracized person.
But if there's no one for you to spread them to, sure you can not give a shit, you just feel a little itchy every now and then. They're like herpes or HPV that way.
>>
>>571593469 no pest control company will guarantee to get rid of bedbugs, outside of a tent covering your house and heating it for three days to cook all the bugs ( which is quite hefty in price).
>>
>>571593868

Well yeah, I'd go do the stuff that the exterminator said to do to get rid of them. I just wonder why people would freak out so much after getting bit, you'd think the scariness of the experience would wear off.

These problems wouldn't be happening if all of these dirty ass illegal immigrants weren't coming over here.

kek
>>
>>571593709
use the bottle it comes in and lightly puff it. you only need a light dusting. you WANT them to crawl through. if theres a pile of it they'll avoid it

you can also make a small rail and spread it with a brush or a broom. it doesnt need to be visible

also dont worry. boric acid is pretty much harmess to mammals

>Based on mammalian median lethal dose (LD50) rating of 2,660 mg/kg body mass

thats retardedly high

that ortho home defense max is safe around people and pets once its dry, and it lasts like 8 months indoors

Or someone you know... always turns out to be someone you know...
>>
>>571594141

you should read my post

the only reason to close the door is to keep the heat in one room, rather than trying to heat your whole house to 120 with a space heater

Sleep tight, OP.

can also buy this to make it easier

you only need to dust it so you can barely tell its there. they crawl through, clean themselves and eat it, and die

thats why it only works on bugs that can chew

wont work on fleas or bedbugs, things like that
>>
>>571594381
Right, and then they just leave the heated room...
>>
I'll tell you this, the only creature I want to magically wipe off the face of the earth more than bedbugs are ticks. My mom got lyme disease from them birdwatching, and it's destroyed her mentally and physically.
Fuck ticks and lyme disease and rocky mountain spotted fever, I used to love camping and going outside, but now deer are swarming DC and the areas around, and I just refuse.
If I get lyme disease I will legit sell all my stuff and kill myself on cam. I'm not going out like my grandma, cats or mother: dead in their minds long before their bodies. Fuck that.
>>
>>571594763
>because the bedbugs know what a door is, and WHERE it is

at 118 they die in 20 mins

they dont know they can move to another room and it'll be cooler. theyre fucking insects

they will just try to hide deeper in their hiding spot and die
>>
>>571594763
You put down poison and diatomaceous earth wherever they might try to exit the room, your hose doorways should be the first place you spray, always.
>>
>>571594996
You're telling me they can't detect temperature differentials? Please tell me you're saying that, because I will slap you in the fucking face with science's dick.

OP I had bedbugs for almost a year, this is how I killed them all to death without spending thousands of dollars on a professional bed bug treatment.
1) Unfortunately, if any of your shit is crazy infested, I would just throw it out. You can try to get a bed bug cover for your mattress to starve the ones in there, but they can go over a year without eating so if you tear the cover... Bugs again. Mattress is generally something to replace.
2) Anything that you can put in a dryer, dry the ever living fuck out of it. Heat is the best method of killing bedbugs.
3) For all of the places you can't see/reach, do the following. Heat up a pot of water until it is boiling, then take a ladle and dump the scalding water on everything and every crevice there may be bugs. The reason the pro treatment costs so much is they need a ton of equipment to heat up your entire place to 180 degrees. Boiling water gives you a cheap, effective method of introducing bed bug killing temperatures.

Bed bugs are the worst, I had to throw away my dresser, bed frame, and mattress on top of the boiling water/dryer tactics to get rid of them. It cost a few hundred bucks to replace the stuff, but it was still thousands less than a pro treatment.

I wish you luck.

>>571593709

Thanks anon. It's getting cold in Chicago and this time of year bugs migrate from parts of the building that get cold, like the crawlspaces where the pipes are. I could dust again to make sure they don't stay. Sometimes I see little bugs like sawtooth grain beetles.

>>571594996
never underestimate a bed bug.

>>571595191
THIS is a good idea. 10/10

>>571581106
You're not alone it's been a 4 to 5 month battle but we are finally winning the war against these Nasty ass bugs. I feel for ya but what I got to work great is this bedbug powder you can buy online it's 30 bucks but it seems to work amazingly.
>>
>>571593973
When I had em there were multiple times where I'd arrive to class, notice a baby bed bug on my back pack and then ask to leave in shame.
>>
>>571595254
they cant when theyre in your bed, and the different temp is on the other side of a door

how are you this fucking stupid? you think bedbugs will realize 'oh he's turning on the heat! lets go to the bathroom and hide there'

appparently the method i've told the OP about is good enough for the dept of agriculture
>>
>>571595571
You're a fucking idiot. Enjoy your next infestation you dumb fuck

i'm so sorry bro...
I still lose sleep over them 2 yrs later. It gets better though once you get rid of them. It takes a long time to get over the psychological damage they do to you and your ability to sleep.

I got rid of them by bombing, putting all clothes into airtight bags after washing/drying 2x, bombing again, getting rid of mattress, taking just what I needed to another place for a few days, bombing again, moving back into my old room, throwing away that mattress after receiving bites again, washing/drying everything 2x, bombing, moving to another place AGAIN, did i mention bombing?, getting rid of ALL the furniture, getting a professional to come in and search for them and spray the entire room with bed bug specific poison and then moved back in.
I swear to god. I hated life. It ruined months of my life. I hate bed bugs and sometimes if I feel anything move in my bed at night or get an itch I'll throw off my sheets, turn on all the lights and frantically check for their black dot poops as well as just search for them in the crannies of my bed.
fuck you bedbugs.

>>571595273
same thing here in vegas when it cools down

what i do around here is i spray with pesticide all around the house 6"band, 12" in front of any opening or door

wait an hour for it to dry then dust with boric acid

can see piles of dead bugs right outside the doors

i spray that ortho shit everywhere inside too. this house was a fucking mess when i moved in
>>
>>571595339

which is why its best to crank the heater and heat your whole house

>>571595745
i think i'll believe professional exterminators and government entities over some dumbfuck who thinks bedbugs will know where to go in a heated room


maybe you should read up a bit more. here's the link again since you obviously missed it
