Don't Throw out your Mattress
This has been bad advice for most of the people who get Bedbugs. Bedbugs live only on the surface of the Mattress, and can always be killed there, although they may be embedded in the Box Spring. Only those whose bed is so actively infested that the nests are going to leave bad stains which they don't want as a reminder, or were planning to get a new bed soon any way really need to throw the bed away. Occasionally, a new Box Spring, (which is a lot less expensive than a mattress) may need to be replaced.
