How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs for Good

http://streaming.yayimages.com/images/photographer/jareynolds/de6322e63d708a3661fa8d8bdb76f81d/bed-bug.jpg

To say that bedbugs are a nuisance is probably an understatement! There is no wonder why so many people wish to know how they can get rid of  bedbugs for good.

Before you read up on ways to eliminate them, here is a brief introduction on what type of insects they are and all the damage they can cause.

About Bedbugs:

The reddish brown flat insects are not more than the size of an apple seed. They feed on blood and once they are full, their tiny bodies swell up. Interestingly, they can go on without a meal for almost a year, provided they live in cool conditions.

From creaks and crevices to mattress seams and sheets, the bedbugs have a lot of hiding places. Since they are small in size they can easily fit themselves practically everywhere. They are more active during night time; this is when they come out looking for their host (you) to suck some blood from. And since you are likely to be sleeping at that time, this gives them an added advantage of going unnoticed.

Clever!

Bedbugs are also known to hitchhike, so don’t blame yourself if you spot them in your house even if you keep it in good shape and are super picky about your house’s maintenance.

Quick Ways to Get Rid of Bedbugs for Good:

While it is not your fault for having bedbugs at your place, you definitely need to be alarmed if you spot even one or two of them because chances are, if there are 2 of them there are definitely more of them hiding in your house as well.

Is there a bedbug infestation? Possibly! The reason why so many people never seem to notice a bedbug infestation is because their bites are quite painless and while they do lead to itching, it is not something severe. You’re probably thinking, if the bites don’t hurt much and they just give you some itching, then why bother getting rid of them in the first place?

The real answer to this is that there are a lot of chances for you to be actually allergic to them and this is where the health related concerns get really serious.

Whether or not you’re allergic to them, you don’t want your place to be infested. This is reason enough for you to remove the bedbugs for good.

Bedbugs reproduce extremely fast and we are talking the female bed bug laying 5 eggs daily. So even if you do not see dozens of them crawling around, do not wait for such a display. Take action immediately. Here are some steps that you need to follow to get rid of bedbugs for good:

1. Detect their hideout places…all of them:

The first and also one of the most difficult steps that would help you get rid of bedbugs for good is to identify all the places they may be hiding at. Once you have located all the places where they might be, only then you would be able to remove them completely. Otherwise they reproduce so fast that even if one infested corner remains while you fumigate all the rest, your efforts would go down the drain.

2. EPA registered pesticides for bedbugs:

Something that has been specifically designed for a specific purpose will help you achieve that goal much faster and more efficiently. Once you have detected the infested areas, use an EPA registered pesticide that is specifically meant for killing bedbugs.  Bug bombs a.k.a foggers may also be used for this purpose since they are especially helpful in allowing the fumes to reach into the corners and crevices where the bedbugs may be hiding.

3. Non-chemical/natural methods for bedbugs:

A variety of non-chemical/natural ways can also be used for getting rid of bedbugs for good. Using hot/cold treatments to kill the bedbugs, using a vacuum cleaner to suck up the bedbugs and even making your own bedbug spray from various essential oils are just a few natural ways of removing bedbugs.

For spraying bed, bed frames and other high activity areas we would suggest a fast killing chemical bed bug spray called Flex 10-10 Insecticide and Pyrid Aerosol. Some other great aerosol sprays we have are Bedlam Plus Bed Bug Spray and JT Eaton Bed Bug Killer. In addition, you mustn’t forget about bed bug eggs which have yet to hatch. These can be eliminated with what is called an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) which prevents eggs from hatching. A great IGR we carry is called Gentrol Point Source.

Prevention: Stop the Infestation from Coming Back:

The last step and probably the most important one is to make sure that they do not come back and infest the place. Since we mentioned in the beginning of this post that they like to hitchhike, in order to keep your place completely away from their tiny evil little clutches might be next to impossible.

Your best bet here is to take action as soon as you spot even one bedbug, or if not the bedbug itself, a bedbug bite. A bite from a bedbug looks like an itchy red blot on your skin. In most cases, if you continue to scratch it, you end up giving yourself an infection!

So if you notice any of these symptoms, chances are that you are being visited by bedbugs when you go to sleep. Some people even use interceptors that help catch bedbugs and keep them away from climbing the legs of beds, tables etc. Additionally, as an effective preventive measure, you can use your preferred bedbug removal method (pesticides or natural) every 7 days. Make it a part of your weekly house cleaning routine.

Better to be safe than sorry!
