So here is how to get rid of them

You can kill bed bugs in your linens by popping bedding, draperies and clothing in the dryer. Bed bugs don't like heat. Twenty to twenty five minutes in the dryer or an afternoon on the clothesline on a hot day will do it. Many strong smelling herbal preparations will work to repel bed bugs. These include: rosemary, lavender, thyme and eucalyptus.

This spray will act as a good deterrent. In higher concentrations, it might stain clothing and bedding, and could even cause headaches and nausea, so don't increase the essential oil concentrations unless you plan on being out of the room overnight and have stripped the bed. Oh, and the term essential oil is a misnomer. The liquid isn't oil based so don't worry about greasy residue.
