How should I treat the carpet for bedbugs?

I live in an apartment that is heavily carpeted. I read in one of the earlier comments that they don't really hang out on carpets, but what if the whole room is carpeted?

Answer:

Usually, bedbugs will only be under the edge of the carpet where the carpet ends near the baseboards and where the furniture legs sit on the carpet. It may be necessary to pull the carpet up around the edges and apply a dust such as Evergreen Dust under the edge. You can spray the carpet where the legs of the furniture rest to eliminate any bedbugs in that area. Bedbugs do not infest carpeting like fleas.
