If you think that you may have a bed bug infestation in your living spaces, especially within your couches or mattresses, waste no time in eliminating the pest problem to help limit the overall damages caused to your home.

You do have the option to preform treatment yourself, but you may find a DIY approach will include a large investment of money, time, and may not fully eliminate the beg bug problems. So while professional pest control services may come with an initial extra cost, the success and knowledge of pest experts will leave your home pest free in no time.

Additional ways to help prevent your beg bug infestation from spreading:

 

  • Wash and dry your clothes/bedding on high heat. One of the first things you should do when working to eliminate your pest problems is wash any fabric materials you can in hot water. Then dry everything you can at a high temperature preferably above 122°F.

  • Deep clean mattresses, seams, or upholstery. After you have removed all fabric off of the surfaces of your home it is important that you take a stiff brush to clean all of the surfaces or non removable fabric. Specifically the mattresses, bed frames, box springs, and couch cushions. This will help scrape away any eggs or bugs that might be hiding in the crevices of your furniture to prevent future needs for pest control .

  • Remove and pick up any clutter. As you remove the fabric and furniture the bed bugs were originally found, the bugs will move. So be proactive and remove any new surfaces you could find bed bugs.

  • Vacuum regularly. Once you’ve removed unnecessary clutter its time to focus on any additional areas where they can hide or live throughout your house that can not be removed, such as cracks near your carpet. Also check the flooring and crevices around your mattress or bed frame. Once you are finished dump out your vacuum contents in a plastic bag away from your home to keep the beg bugs from returning.

  • Freeze clothes or bedding. It is important to note Bedbugs can also freeze to death, so try putting your clothes or bedding in the freezer for a few days or leaving them outside when the temperature drops below freezing if you are not able to utilize high heat options.

  • Fix or seal cracks in your paint or wallpaper. Another great way to help prevent the spread of a bed bugs is to check the cracks within your house on a regular basis to fix any issues and give the bedbugs one less place to hide.
