How to Eliminate Bed Bugs

Eliminating bed bugs can be really difficult and bothersome. Although the most effective way to get rid of bed bugs completely is to contact pest control professionals, here are some tips on how to eliminate bed bugs naturally that you can try.

Steam cleaning

Steam cleaning has been proven to kill bedbugs and eggs on mattresses because they are being exposed to temperatures that exceed 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure that it exceeds that temperature because if it does not, it will not kill any bugs or eggs.

Vacuuming

While dealing with an infestation of bedbugs, it is important to vacuum at least every few days with a powerful hose attachment in order to remove most of the bugs. Make sure to thorough and reach every area that could be infested. Make sure to get rid of the vacuum bag outside as far away from your home as possible.

Baking soda

Baking soda absorbs moisture, so it also can absorb moisture in bedbugs bodies killing them. To use this solution correctly, put the baking soda on all places that could be infected. It is important to vacuum the bugs up and reapply every few days.

Washing clothes & bedding

To properly follow through with this solution, you must wash everything that has been exposed to the bed bugs in hot water and dry it on the hottest setting possible. This will help kill off the colony because they cannot handle the heat.

 

 

 

 

It is important to remember that although these solutions are somewhat effective, they are not completely effective. They mostly  help with small infestations that have not spread too much. However, to properly get rid of bedbugs in your home, you must contact a pest control professional to help with the infestation.
