You may have a very simple bed configuration or a highly sophisticated one. The preparation would depend upon how complex the bed set up is.
Next how many articles are in the vicinity of the bed and need to be scrutinized. Generally, any furniture (night table, book shelf or dressing table) within 2 feet of bed is highly suspect after the bed itself. Furniture that is more than 2 feet away (in initial infestation) is NOT likely to be contributing to the bed bug presence.
