how to get rid of bedbugs on your own
i bought 3 things from home depot.
1- safer brand (DE) diatomaceous earth 4lb --which cuts insects and hence kills them over 7 days.. for a bag.. just sprinkle let sit for 1 day then vacuum up the next day. (i let it sit for 1 day overnight as bed bugs are nocturnal).
2- Hot shot mattress and luggage treatment kit .. put mattress and shoes etc in the plastic bag seal with the chemical strip inside and keep for 7days (i did for 7 days to kill all eggs too)
3- Ortho bed bug and flea killer spray -.. to kill any residual eggs etc..
