What to do:
After your Landlord arranges for an exterminator, you should:
Launder all of your clothes,
towels, blankets, etc. Dry everything thoroughly on the hottest
settings, as heat is one of the few things that effectively kills
Wrap your mattress, box
spring and pillows in plastic or synthetic wraps that zip or seal
closed. Seal the zippers shut with duct tape.
Store your clothes, towels
etc in re-sealable bags to prevent further infestation. Bedbugs usually
only like to live in your bed, but they will move to your clothes and
rugs if desperate!
exterminator knows he or she must spray at least two or three times in
order to wipe out a bedbug infestation. In some cases, it is more.
Between visits, a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol can be used in bedbug
"hotspots" such as bed frames.
