    If you're getting bitten in your sleep then they're probably in the mattress. Try wrapping your mattress in a bedbug proof mattress cover, you can buy them from Amazon, throw out your pillows (wrapping them completely in a plastic garbage bag or similar) and buy new ones. If they haven't spread too far then that might be enough. Leave the cover on the mattress for at least 18 months, that's how long the little #&%$# take to die! Also hot wash all your clothes and bed sheets. I had an infestation a few years ago, I feel your pain, bed bugs are the worst!

    I still have them but I don't get bite as much as I did in the beginning, but I will get this for my bed . I was gonna wash my pillows in hot water but I might have to throw them out
