Sometimes it takes more than one treatment to exterminate a large infestation. Also, if you have not already done so for the previous treatment, wash all you clothing and linens on hot setting and bag them air-tight in garbage bags. Keep what you are not using inside the bags for 6 weeks if possible. Also, for your bedding, they sell zippered covers for the boxspring and mattress, as well as plastic double lipped cups to place under the legs of the bed. Some powdered diatomaceous earth may be he

Half a second on Google tells me that rubbing alcohol sprayed directly on them only kills about half of them - so if you count the eggs, the larvae, and the ones in hiding, you'd be better off just getting a professional.
