60

Today, it's my birthday. What did I get? A 12-hour work shift, after spending an almost sleepless night in a computer chair because my bed is infested with bed bugs. FML

Wrap your mattress in plastic, trust me it works... home depot sells the plastic I'm talking about. Its white and its large enough to fully cover a king size. The bugs will die of hunger inside the plastic. Dont sleep with any bed sheets, unless your able to keep it from touching the floor. They are able to climb on wood surfaces, even ceilings! So if your bed frame is made out of wood... i would take it outside... oh and they cant walk on plastic btw its very difficult for them, it will take awhile to get rid of them, so hang in there. If you have any questions, msg me :) goodluck !

i can attest that this does work but unless you kill them in the rest of your house/apartment they will just get back into your bed once you take the plastic off. i had a roommate that let its dog get a nasty flea infestation that eventually got into my bed. I honestly wasn't able to kill them in my mattress until I moved out

Well, happy birthday anyway. Next time try sleeping on the couch or the floor. Even the bathtub probably would've been more comfortable. Time to call the exterminator too!!

Happy birthday OP! Bed bugs are the worst, but for a temporary solution (so you can sleep), you should buy bed bug mattress covers and sleep on those without sheets until you can permanently get rid of the bugs. And I hope your birthday ended on a better note :)

Ok, wear a ski mask and gloves then. I'm obviously too ugly to be bitten on the face. And although the bed bug covers don't take care of the full problem, they do help tremendously!
