If you think you may have an infestation, you should check for bed bugs around your bed – including around mobile phones or inside books.
They could attach to clothing, so it’s a good idea to check your wardrobe for any signs of them.
If you do have a bed bug problem, you should clean all bedding, curtains and clothes in hot water, and dry them on the highest setting.
Vacuum the bed and the surrounding area. After finishing, empty the contents of the vacuum into a plastic bag and take it straight out to the bin.
If your mattress is infested, it’s probably a good idea to just get rid of it and buy a new one.
