If you wake up in the morning covered in bites, you may have a bed bug problem. Along with the bites, bed bugs bring a variety of possible health risks, including allergic reactions and added stress. With the right treatment, you can get rid of the bugs quickly.
The first method of bed bug treatment is to thoroughly clean your property, starting with the areas where bed bugs are most likely to appear. This includes the bedrooms and laundry area.

Remove and wash all bedding including sheets, pillowcases, and comforters. After washing these items, do not place them back in the bedroom. You first need to clean and vacuum the room. Pick up all items, clean the surfaces, and then vacuum the mattress and flooring.
Thoroughly cleaning the bedroom may help to remove the bed bugs. However, the eggs are often difficult to remove without the help of a professional bed bug exterminator. Besides cleaning, you may need to discard the furniture or clothing that brought the bed bugs into your home.
If possible, try to determine the source of the infestation. For example, if the bugs appeared after purchasing a used mattress or used furniture, the mattress or furniture is likely the source of the infestation.
People also may bring bed bugs home in their luggage when coming back home from vacation. Consider these possibilities and get rid of any items that you think may have brought the bed bugs to your home.
