We know Bedbugs can be really annoying .This small nocturnal insects that live by feeding on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. The common bedbug (Cimex lectularius) is the best adapted to human environments. It is found in temperate climates throughout the world and has been known since ancient times. Below are some helpful tips you can follow:
Avoid hotel bed bugs when traveling. Keep luggage elevated off the floor and outside the bedroom. Consider a travel-size spray for use in your travels.
Understand the risks of introducing second-hand beds or furniture into your residence.
Make sure you seal cracks and crevices around your home.
Vacuum regularly and quickly discard the bag. Besides the floors, also vacuum mattresses, box springs, couches, arm-chairs, closets, shelving, the inside of furniture, baseboards and window and door frames.
Encase mattresses and box springs in air-tight,hypo-allergenic covers or wrap them in active liners.
Install climb-up insect interceptors under furniture legs.
How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
Strip all beds and launder all sheets, pillowcases, mattress pads and blankets.
Remove items from closets, drawers, nightstands, book cases and dressers and store in plastic bags or plastic containers.
Have all clothing, fabrics and drapes laundered or dry-cleaned. Normal wash cycles will kill bed bugs.
Running items in a dryer at high heat settings will kill all life stages.
Do not move items out of infested areas unless they are securely wrapped or bagged.
Discard cardboard boxes, bags, newspapers and magazines. Bed bugs prefer harboring in wood, fabric and paper items as opposed to metal and plastic.
Discard all ripped or torn materials as well as any heavily infested item. Use disposable gloves, securely wrap and seal items and handle them carefully. Think about wearing a protective outfit: although bed bugs will not jump on a person like fleas, rubbing against a contaminated mattress could dislodge bed bugs onto your clothing.
Deface and label discarded items like mattresses, box springs and sofas. This will discourage curbside scavengers and prevent the spread of infestations.
