If your cat is strictly an outdoor cat or likes to sleep in the garage, or you are kind enough to want to provide warmth for a couple of feral cats, you can make an easy, inexpensive bed. I bought large clear plastic storage containers, removed the lids, and turned the container on its side. I then put down old towels and blankets inside the bin to provide comfort. If you don’t have any old blankets, I purchased a very inexpensive fleece blanket, cut in into thirds, folded the blanket and placed that on the old towels.
For older children who haven’t yet stopped growing, a combination bed is a great idea; they include a twin bed or twin bunk beds with a desk for doing homework. Once your child has left home the beds are easily separated and the room can then be converted into a guest room. Or a bed with storage space underneath always comes in handy. Before you hit the stores check out the size and shape of the room first. Is there any particular place you want the bed to go? If the room is only small then you don’t want to take up all the space with a bed that is far too big for a small child.
Instead of ineffectual generalised spraying, arm yourself with a bright flashlight and target their nests. Search for adults, juniors and eggs, noting that sometimes individual eggs are scattered all over the home. Dismantle bed frames and stand the components on their edges. Look for the bugs themselves and the light-brown molted skins of the nymphs. Remove the gauze fabric under the box spring in order to inspect and treat because there is a good chance they are inside your mattress. Check under the fabric stapled to the frame in the box springs.
Cracks and crevices of bed frames, attached side railings and supports, head and foot boards all need to be closely examined, especially if the frame is wood. Bedbugs prefer fabric, wood and paper more so than metal or plastic. If you cannot afford to replace the bed, vacuum it thoroughly. Brushing also helps. Try treating your bed with a portable steam machine. It helps but will not kill the bugs and eggs hidden inside the box spring or mattress.
