Another alternative to freezing is heat:  130 deg F for a few hours.
Since bedbugs have made many happy homes in New York City, many
exterminators have machines that produce those temperatures, which
allows disinfestation in the rooms where the collections are.

I suggest going on the "MuseumPests.net" mailing list to get
detailed advice from the experts about specific pests and the
options for killing them.
