Chances are slim to none that you will be able to contain them on your own. Infestation is rapid and very hard to treat. You will need an extermination, or even new mattresses. They are becoming more and more common than ever.
well.....umm I would just wash my sheets and blankets and try to wash your mattress or get it wet with soup and water and let it dry and when your done vacuum it and your rooms floor and just clean your room and smash them (sorry never had bugs before)
You have to get febreeze you spray it twice a day every where until its gone. I had bed bugs before and believe me they are a pain I spent thousands of dollars trying to get rid of them but nothing worked and then I found out febreeze kills them.
There are only 2 methods that I know of that are actually effective-heat & chemicals. The heat method is the best "green" method, it's very effective & requires no chemicals. The problem is that you'd have to wrap everything in plastic & raise the temperature for x amount of time. You'd really need to call a pro. to have it be effective. It's used by many of the finer hotels. In a nutshell they load mattresses into trailers or large box trucks that are sealed up. Chemicals not the earth friendliest are also effective & can be purchased at numerous stores. Just Google or Ask it and the sites will give you the info you need. If you're not comfortable doing it yourself than hire 1 of the quality firms that will do the job correctly & will do a follow up as well. You'll be mattresses-less for a bit, but you won't itch
while the easiest thing to do is to bring in a pest controller, would it be the smartest/cost effective? Can you honestly say that it would not be SO difficult to remove the bed bugs from your apartment that it would warrant paying the premium to bring in somebody else to just move of your stuff around and clean here and there? I will not say any more than that on the subject matter and you folks decide. Here is an online guide to help you deliberate that choice: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/bed-bugs-c-39.html
