I just found out I have bedbugs. I've had them for months, apparently. How can I safely get rid of them? They are primarily in the couch, and my bus hang out around and under the couch. Is diatomaceous earth safe?

According to the National Pesticide Information Center, it is safe. They have a fact sheet that you can find if you google "diatomaceous earth scientific research." I don't know anything about this organization, and I have seen claims from pet owners that it is unsafe, but I have seen not evidence to support that. DE has a long history of being used safely in farm animals, and I have used it on my rabbits with good results and no problems. I would choose DE over chemicals because I believe the farmers that recommended it to me.
