if possible, take the mattress out in the hot sun. wash all the sheets and take it out in the hot sun, pillow as well.

you have to google for other method to get rid of them.

CRABS!! :P and if its not then washing just the matress is no good as bed bugs live in all the little nooks and crannies around the bed, bed base, carpets etc

To get rid of it used durian skin helps alot...do not throw the durians skins after eating it just place it under ur bed for 1 whole day. Bed bugs are very irritating they bite u in the middle of the night so it's best to get rid ASAP... buy a new mattess :wink:

have you had bites? I think bed bugs bite (like mozzies do). It might have been just a bug that had ended up on your mattress (I hope so, for your sake).

I hope the matress cleaning goes OK and you get rid of whatever it is/was.

before sunning it, rent or borrow a HEPA-grade vacuum cleaner from someone.

get a mattress mite cover after sucking them out and sunning them.

make sure ALL ITEMS TOUCHING THE BED (bolsters/comforter/duvet/quilt/pillow/cushions/throws/etc) have been thoroughly cleaned of bugs (dry cleaning store will do it) before throwing them together again.

also check all other beds/couches for the same problem and apply same solution!
