    My moron brother has been letting his girlfriend stay overnight the last few months, and now we've been finding bedbugs. She probably brought them in with her belongings(she's a ho). I keep spraying 91% rubbing alcohol on the beds, running the sweeper, putting all the bed clothes in the dryer...and I'm still finding a couple here and there.

    Help.

    Contact an exterminator and remind me never to buy a bass from you.

    There is no easy way to do it. Bedbugs made my life a living hell for several months before I just moved and threw away the mattress. Couldn't sleep more than a couple of hours a night because I could feel them crawling on me and had to wash my sheets/comforter every night just to get that. It was absolutely terrible.

    If I could go back, I would a) call an exterminator as soon as I started having a bedbug problem and b) buy a mattress sealing bag to keep them stuck in there so they can't bite me.

    Just my $.02.

    I spent fifteen bucks on the alcohol and just poured all over the mattress. Never thought of the bag. Thanks man.

    Oh, and the ho has been banished from the household.

    They aren't attracted to dirty houses necessarily and we can't see you sitting there in your underwear, so don't be embarrassed.

    Back in the old days I had an infestation of another kind I had to deal with (interestingly, also ho related) that I tried to treat with rubbing alcohol. The Dr. told me I was just giving them something to drink and it wouldn't kill them. I watched a doc on this problem a while ago, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the film made the point that these critters can migrate, so chances are that if you remove the mattress they'll still be around (probably propagating like crazy now that they're all liquored up from your "treatments"). The doc's summation was that the only way of eradicating these pests is via an exterminator, and (sorry) it ain't cheap.

    Like others have said, call an exterminator right away.
    My ex drummer had the same problem and it was a nightmare for him. He claims he brought them home in his luggage from a hotel in Vegas. During this time he would visit my house and put his jacket on my couch which made me very nervous about spreading the bug. He finally broke down and hired exterminator and even that took a few visits to get rid of them.

    The rubbing alcohol kills 'em right away. Bought a bunch of Raid to use in a couple days, too. I'm so pissed.

    I have nothing to add, but hope that the sentence structure of this thread title is adopted with minor variations for nearly all future posts.

    i.e. New Boss At Work: How to Kill? Questions about new guitarist: How to Kill? I just came out of the Closet: How to Kill? Etc.

    My ho in question had an affinity for alcohol so she probably passed that along with a high tolerance for the stuff to her host.

    Not sure if it is healthy to be sleeping on a bed dowsed with Raid. Be careful.

    One way the exterminators do it is:-

    They seal up your dwelling and then pump heat into the place....can't remember what the temp is they use but it's up there....(higher than 160F I think).

    The heat kills all the bugs......they can't take it.
