Call an exterminator. They live in the walls and come out under the trim and through electrical receptacles. Then it's a real pain to get rid if them, they treat and you have to wash all your clothes and bedding, kids stuffed animals, shoes, ect.
no problem

Try bathing. Also keep African Americans out for 72 hrs.

Bathing has nothing to do with it dumbass. They're not cockroaches that feed off of filth. They feed off of blood. You don't get them from being dirty. Anyone can get them.. they can be found in any communicable place, a 5tar hotel and even YOUR house!

It happened to me, I moved into a house in January and about 6 weeks later my fiancé started getting bites. We had a cat so we first thought it could be fleas, turns out after talking to our new neighbors they told us that the previous family told them that they thought they had bedbugs. I don't know how long they had moved out before we moved in, but they left us a nasty present. It took almost 2 months and many consists by the exterminator before we finally got rid if them. That's when we found out that try live in the walls and baseboards.

I wasn't over run with them, but i had a few, and it was miserable. I couldn't afford to call an exterminator. So here's some low budget things to help. Spray rubbing alcohol all over bedding areas and lounging areas such as couches and chairs. Get between all the cracks and especially seams. Rubbing alcohol is extremely flammable. So obviously Do not have open flames or smoke in this vicinity. Remove, treat, and then store and unnecessary items close to these areas.
Use table salt on any verticle area you can. Examples: around base boards, under cushions, between the mattress and box springs, etc.
Salt dehydrattes insects.
There's also this stuff called diamatecous earth (or its spelled closely to that) it kills and wards off bedbugs. You can find it on amazon.
You need to treat everywhere. They will hide inside furniture, in your closests on your clothes and shoes, and like mentioned through electrical outlets and baseboads between walls.
Its a constant thing you have to stay on top of every day. Good luck.

Serious,throw away everything you own and walk naked to your new place. the solutions posted above are stupid as could be and will not work. Getting rid of bed bugs takes months of time and hard work. http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Bed-Bugs

The things suggested here will not work. DE is dangerous and can cause permanent lung damage. Find some way to pay for an exterminator. These bugs are difficult to get rid of and you will need a professional who will come back multiple times. Good luck to you!
