How do I get rid of bed bugs?

Some common steps to manage a bed bug infestation include: washing bedding and other soft furnishings in hot water and drying them in a clothes dryer on a hot setting, vacuuming mattresses, sofas and places bed bugs may hide, and steam-cleaning carpets. In many cases, a professional pest operator may be needed to treat the home with chemical pesticides to get rid of all the insects and their eggs.
