    My wife and I had an unfortunate run in with bed bugs this summer in the hotel we stayed in. Those are good suggestions about how to get rid of bed bugs. But the BEST way to get rid of them is steam. Of course put your clothes that you can wash in the laundry and wash and dry them at least twice and special clothing articles to the dry cleaners. But for all the other things you cannot wash or dryclean… buy a steamer and steam EVERYTHING! It works… trust me…. I know from first hand experience. The heat from the steam will kill the little blood suckers in ANY stage of their life cycle.
