Some of the Best Ways to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are one of the most aggressive and invasive types of pest you’ll find in your home, and the sooner you get rid of them the better. Unfortunately, they’re also pretty hardy. If you’re looking for a simple way to stop an infestation, you might be out of luck. However, it’s not impossible. Bed Bug Heaters is here to offer some professional advice on how you can get rid of bed bugs in your home.
Wash Bedding on a High Heat
Bed bugs hate high temperatures. This is why thermal pest control works so well for infestations. But a simpler method of killing them is to wash and dry all your bedding at a high temperature.
The downside is that you’ll have to do all of it to make sure you’ve taken care of an infestation. This also means doing the same for any pillows, stuffed animals or additional items that are frequently left on infested mattresses. Things can pile up fast, and you might end up ruining some delicates in the process.
Clean Up Your Clutter
Speaking of stuffed animals, clutter on or around a bed is the perfect hiding place for bed bugs. If you’re the messy and disorganized type, or anyone sharing your home is, it might be time to change some habits. Clothing, bedding, carpet, and anything else strewn on the floor near a bed is asking for an infestation. Keeping things tidy won’t necessarily prevent an infestation, but it can definitely help.
Scrub and Vacuum Your Mattress
Your mattress is literally a breeding ground for bed bugs. As gross as that might sound, it’s an unfortunate fact. Thoroughly cleaning and treating your mattress is the most effective way to eliminate an infestation.
You can do this by stripping and vacuuming the mattress itself, along with any surrounding carpet. Using a stiff broom to brush the mattress first can also help to properly remove the bugs and their eggs.
Unfortunately, if an infestation has already taken hold, it’s pretty likely that this method isn’t going to get rid of it entirely. Your best bet is to use more professional, heavy-duty equipment.
