Ok im 18, so last month a couple weeks after i graduated i noticed there were bed bugs on the edge of my mattress. It wasnt a lot of them maybe i'd say like 5 or 6 of them. And they were adult size. I think they started makin babies because i seen the lil tiny ones. Before i discovered i had bed bugs i never gave it a thought. But when i kept wakin up and seeing there were bumps appearing up on my arms and wrists and chest i automatically assumed i had something in my bed biting on me.

    Simple logic= sprinkle salt all over your bed, in between the sheets, blankets etc. and on top and around the whole bed underneath it. Leave it like that all day. Sleep on top of bed with another blanket for the night and the next morning. strip the bed and wash the sheet, blanket, etc. then brush everything on the floor and clean the whole floor. SALT will kill all bugs. Mike

    You have to get rid of all infested mattresses. There are sprays but you must get rid of the mattresses and any other upholstered furniture that is infected. I know it costs money but they will keep coming back if you don't.

    A bed bug infestation has nothing to do with cleanliness — you can pick them up in the finest hotels, and they can enter into the cleanest homes at any time. Due to this, Bed Bug treatment in Mumbai and other such cities becomes extremely important.

    Maybe get a new mattress? It may be expensive but most likely worth the money
