We had them bad to we bought spray from right aid green can bed bug spray but it is almost $9.00 a can but this spray kills the bugs and eggs it took about 3 months and about $70 of spray and throwing out 2 couches but now there gone if you have them you want to search in your closets to because they get into the lining of your sweaters and jackets we searched our closet and almost ever single jacket had them in the linings like by the neck and stuff also if you have them but not in your bed yet you can buy dryer sheets from the dollar store and place them in between the mattresses on your bed this repels them they do not like dryer sheets at all like i said we got rid of them but it does takes months of spray washing and you might even have to throw out furniture if you have them in your couch it is just best to throw it out and get a new one

A few more tips to prevent reinfestation:

1. Once cleaned, seal mattress and foundation with a bedbug proof zipped cover.

2. Isolate sleeping area. Move bed away from wall and let nothing else touch it -- not even side tables. Bedding may not touch floor or side tables either. And no storing stuff under the bed.

3. For extra protection, wrap carpet tape or fly paper around bed feet to prevent any bugs from climbing up into the bed.

4. Recheck often for reinfestation and retreat as necessary (hopefully you won't have to).

Good luck!

Makes Bed Bugs Dead Bugs wrote:
I have become a bed bug expert having finally killed my last one about a month ago. I had them for about seven-to-eight months before I became really determined to eradicate all of them. I was at a hotel shortly before I noticed them in my home. My home is clean, so I'll assume that I got them from this hotel. This was my first and hopefully last encounter with these pests.
I used the Internet to learn how to get rid of them. The key is 91% Isopropyl Alcohol which can be purchased at Walmart or any drugstore. It is better known as rubbing alcohol. Be sure to get the 91% and not the 70%.
You will also need an empty and cleaned spray bottle like Windex, Fantastic, etc. Fill the spray bottle with the rubbing alcohol and put the sprayer part back on. Reuse this bottle until you are sure that you have killed all the bed bugs.
When you see a bed bug, spray it with just a small spray and it will be instantly killed. You need to be vigilant because it will take awhile to get rid of them all.
If they are in your mattress, you may have to replace it or keep killing them. This could take a very long time. I decided to replace my very old box-spring and mattress with new ones, leaving the plastic wrapping on them. The bed bugs were unable to get inside the new box-spring and mattress because the plastic is too thick for them to penetrate.
You should also wash your bedsheets and other clothes in hot water. Don't wash your pillows, just dry them in a clothes dryer. Bedbugs die in temperatures of 113 degrees Fahrenheit or more when exposed for at least fifteen minutes. You can also try the steam from a steam iron on your mattress to kill any bed bugs inside of it.
Bed bugs and their nests are very ofter within fifteen-feet of where they feed (on you by "biting" for your blood.) They like hard spots, like behind your headboard. So, you will have to move your bed or other furniture around to spot and then kill them. They got into a Lazy-Boy chair and I had to flip the chair upside down regularly and inspect it to eventually kill them. I knew that I finally killed them all when I would wake-up without any bite areas on my body that itched.
If the bed bug is dark red colored (like blood) that means that they have eaten. If they are translucent, they have yet to feed. Whatever the color, spray them.....spray them.....spray them with the rubbing alcohol.
Bed bug nests look somewhat like spiderwebs with small white dots that look like tiny snowballs. They are usually on hard surfaces. You need to scrub them off the surface and then vacuum the area thereafter. You should also regularly vacuum all of your rugs just in case they hide in there and to get rid of the ones that you already killed.
If you stay vigilant, you have a very good chance of getting rid of them rather quickly. You probably can do it in less time than I did because it took me quite awhile to learn all their hiding places and what to actually look for regarding their nests.
One last bit of advice. If you are not sure it is a bed bug that you are seeing, spray it anyway. I have killed quite a few with that tactic.
If you need anymore help, just ask me, the Dead Bug Man.
91% alcohol is EXTREMELY flammable. I know of a model who used it by mistake instead of the 70%(it keeps you from getting sweaty in the sun during photo shoots), after she put it on she lit up a smoke. She didn't die but she isn't modeling anymore. Her face melted

Being on welfare has nothing to do with bed bugs. Having a dirty house has nothing to do with bed bugs. Do your research. Bed bugs are spreading like wildfire it's usually the rich who travel a lot that get them. Not so much the poor. The poor gets them from getting "free" items off the st and internet etc. Rome is now infested with bb. It's getting really bad. Colonial, Madison plaza, liberty gardens all have active cases of bb. Be careful out there even just a visit to a friends house can leave you with bedbugs. They are also very expensive to get rid of and have to be treated the right way or you will make the problem worse.

Anyone hear about this problem in the local area? From what I understand the apartment complexes are very infested. Curious to see the response from local people about this epidemic that is sweeping the country and our little town. I heard Liberty Gardens has them, Madison Plaza and The Colonial Apartments on Floyd Ave. They cant get rid of these things. People are having to throw out new furniture once its infested. Most of these people living in these rent subsidized apartments cant afford to be doing that. And the Rome Housing Authority wont lift a hand to help them. They figure these people that live there are poor so it doesnt matter. What a shame. I have an aunt that lives in one of the above complexes and they make her pay to have exterminators come in and try and get rid of them.$100 a pop. She lives on Social Security and cant afford that. And the establishment wont do anything about it. Why do people treat less fortunate people this way.

God Bless

I can't believe they are allowing people to move in knowing That they have a bedbug problem. I bet not one word was said to you about it. I pray you don't get them. Buy some dirt at ace hardware and lay it in front of your door. I forgot the name of it but it's a special kind of dirt that kills bugs. Don't allow anyone into your home. I know it's hard but this keeps them out. Use the stairs to avoid the elevator if you can. Good luck and god bless. I'm sorry you have been put in this awful situation.

I live in the colonial 2 apartments and only have been here for 2 months and I have recently ran into alot of problems and have been moving about 10 times in one year do to so many things going on now I am trying to make myself at home somewhere and run into a problem with Bedbugs at Colonial 2 apartments after just moving in February 3rd 2017 I get so much from Social Security $735 a month and to look for another place with no rent assistance it's impossible because I would need furniture and other stuff besides that and I am pretty much stuck living with bedbugs they sprayed my apartment three times and still bedbugs show up here and there and codes can't do nothing and the health department suggests to stay put because it will be problems where ever I move so I guess this is home.
