    •  I found decent prices (4+ / 0-)

      for the bed bug proof super duper mattress covers at overstock dot com. (about $50 for Full size). If you only have one mattress, ditch it! then buy a new one and zip that baby up immediately. I mean, mail-order the super-case BEFORE you buy the new mattress so that you have it on hand the minute you bring the new one in. If you can "afford" do that (it will save you money in the long run). Shop discount outlet type places for new mattress/box springs - replace both.

      What a nightmare.

      I know roaches are gross and all but they dont bite you and the boric acid does work. Focus your efforts and $ on the bed bug issue.  Heat, as others have said, works. As for the apt situation, ditto what others said above already.  Best of luck!
