My apartment is infested with them and a professional exterminator quoted me $1200.00 for a 2 bed room apt. I am trying to find other DIY solutions as I cant afford that fee.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

I beg to differ, although it is a ton of hard work and irritating as heck. My sister noticed bites o. My niece and nephew following a trip to Cancun, 4 months later she figured out it was bedbugs . At 4 months the problem was in every bedroom, being with limited resources after hours of research and trying a ton of other crap. . .I bought her a 140 dollar professional steamer from harbor freight. ...high temp kills. We did all of the beds the couches ...(no carpet thankfully} washed all the lining and clothes in one fell swoop at laundromat, I then took almost all of her clothing to my house. She kept what was needed for 6 days. Bug life cycle on day 6 we steamed the crap out of everything again...every joint baseboard. Bed couch...everything...washed the 6 days clothesi think we could have stopped there....but we waited 6 days and did it one more time. Eradicated.
