There really isn’t any home remedy to get rid of bedbugs. Over-the-counter pesticides and bug-removal products do not work, according to my research. Sorry to give you not-so-good news.
Extreme heat seems to be the only way to kill the little devils. So, wash and dry all of your bedding in the hottest water and highest drying temperature you can.
Call a professional if they are in other areas of the house. You cannot kill them yourself, and they multiply very rapidly. So, if they really are bedbugs, don’t waste time trying old-fashioned hints. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to rid your home of these hitchhiking pests.

Use old prescription pill bottles placed over toothbrushes standing in holders to keep your toothbrushes clean.
