how can a person get rid of bed bugs
Hello, welcome to Just Answer.

If there is a pest that beat all others it's that one. Really hard to get rid of them.

Here is some tips:

Something not mentioned in this link is to not stay in bed too long.

Bring spiders in the house, especially those that run on the floor and don't climb much.

If you call an exterminator, try to get one that offer pheromones treatment.

Here is key data to know what kind of enemy you now have:

"Bed bugs can go without feeding for 80 to 140 days. Older stages of nymphs can survive longer without feeding than younger ones, and adults have survived without food for as long as 550 days. A bed bug can take six times its weight in blood, and feeding can take 3 to 10 minutes. Adults live about 10 months, and there can be up to 3 to 4 generations of bed bugs per year."

So expect a full year to really think that you got completely destroyed the colony.
