How do you kill bed bugs?

If you’ve spotted the tell-tale signs of bed bugs, here’s our advice on how to eliminate bed bugs.

Getting rid of bed bugs usually requires chemical treatments. Treating your bed and bedroom with insecticides can be harmful, so it is important to use products that can be used safely in bedrooms. Do not treat mattresses and bedding unless the label specifically says you can use them on bedding.

It is highly recommended that you hire an experienced pest control professional for bed bug extermination.

How do you get rid of bedbugs naturally?

Getting rid of bedbugs begins with cleaning up the places where bedbugs live.

This should include the following:

  • Wash bedding, linens, curtains, and clothing in hot water and dry them on the highest dryer setting.
  • For items that can’t be washed such as, stuffed animals and shoes, place on a high dryer setting for 30 minutes.
  • To remove bedbugs and their eggs use a stiff brush to scrub mattress seams before vacuuming.
  • Vacuum your bed and surrounding area frequently but once finished place the vacuum cleaner bag in a plastic bag and put in an outside bin
  • Use a zippered mattress protector to keep bedbugs from entering or escaping. Bedbugs may live up to 12 months without feeding, so keep the cover on your mattress for up to a year to make sure all bugs in the mattress are dead. Here are some bed bug encasement products that actually work.
  • Repair any cracks in plaster and glue down loose wallpaper to reduce the number of places bed bugs can hide.
  • Remove any clutter from around your bed.
  • If your mattress is infested, you may want to get rid of it and get a new one, but take care to eradicate bed bugs from the rest of your home or they will infect your new mattress.

Will bed bugs come back?

With the help of a professional, thorough cleaning and the use of mattress encasements you should be able to eradicate bed bugs at your property without disposing of mattresses and furniture.

After a professional has visited the property, vacuum regularly and dispose of the vacuum bag straight away to ensure all of the eggs, shells and bugs have been removed.

Keep mattress and bedding encasements on your bedding for up to a year in order to prevent re-infestation of your bedding.
