Pitch the sofa. Get it out of your house now. Be sure to mark it or make it so no one would want it before you put it out.

If the bedbugs haven’t made it to your mattresses yet —and you can check — go get the bedbug proof mattress and box spring covers. Walmart has them. Put them on now and make sure to seal them tight and don’t puncture them.

Move your beds away from the walls. And if you have headboards — move them away from your mattresses. Bed bugs will go where their next meal will be — and that’s where people sleep.

You can put saucers with diatomaceous earth in them and put the legs to your bed in them.

If you decide to go with an exterminator — make sure they offer you a guarantee. $4000 is a big price tag — are they doing a heat treatment on your house?

Do your research — there’s plenty of info on the Internet.

I’m sorry — bed bugs are the worst! My dd has them in a college apt. She had to pitch most of her furniture.
