Bed bugs are a common thing in some areas where there is exposure to forestry land or travelling/camping spot. A parasite that goes unnoticed by humans and enters the clothes, luggage, bed and other essentials can be a bed bug. They are hardly the size of a kiwi seed and are red. The parasitic bugs are famous for their blood-sucking capability. They live on human blood and cause skin infections. Bed bugs are a terrible enemy of sleep for some people, and it gets hard to rest or sleep at all if there is a bed bug problem in your house. Here are some approved tips and tricks to get rid of bed bugs permanently.
Clean your Bedsheet and Mattress Cover
Every night, before bed, you must take a piece of cloth to beat the bed mattress or double divan bed base that might be home to bed bugs. It efficiently removes all sorts of dead skin cells and particles on the bed. Furthermore, you can vacuum the mattress as well before you sleep. Some people are more cautious about hygiene; hence washing the bedsheets on a regular basis makes them feel less traumatized by the bed bugs! You can try multiple anti-germs or specialized detergent formulas for your bedsheets to help prevent bed bug homes within the sheets.
Steam it up!
If your mattresses, sofas and fitted sheets often get bed bugs in the dark, then it is time to up a level. Get your steamer out and steam your bed. Bed bugs die at a certain hot temperature such as 45C degrees, or 113 F. Steaming can help remove germs and bacteria too. Bed bugs can die in direct sunlight exposure as well if they cannot find a place to hide. Similarly, you can increase the thermostat of the room to a bearable yet hot high and close the room for a few minutes to let the bugs die at excessive temperature. The more temperature they will get, the larger the number of bed bugs that will die. Once you begin steaming the mattresses, you will notice parasites and bed bugs accumulating on the edges of some surfaces. Bed bugs can be hard to get rid of, but that is not impossible. You can keep heating the room, ironing sheets and place a hot comforter for yourself to sleep in peace.
Clean your Room
Too much clutter and mess in your room will give them little homes of their own to stay and hide until nighttime. Keep your room clean from laundry, food particles such as crumbs, under-the-bed essentials, dust and all. It will help you vacuum the carpet every day and reduce the risk of hidden bed bugs crawling over you. A cleanroom will have no hiding places other than the sides of beds, which you will heat every so often. After you have vacuumed the area, regularly keep track of throwing the rubbish of the vacuum or else the bed bugs will find light to escape.
The Trick of Vacuuming
Vacuuming is a simple and effective way to reach places where your hand cannot reach. Vacuum from everywhere. Whether it is in your cupboard, bed top, bed frame, bed legs, under and over, behind the drawers and dressing table. Connect a thin attachment on the tube to enter closed-in spaces. Vacuuming sucks all sorts of dust mites, bed bugs and crumbs that can allure other insects to crawl at night as well. Again mentioning the importance of clearing out the vacuum waste, you must throw and renew the bag or the bugs will escape for sure.
Pesticide Spray and Pest Control Services
When you have tried every little and large DIY related to the bed bugs, then it is time to get into action! Call the pest control services and the authorities to cleanse the home free from all sorts of pests, including irritating bed bug that ruin peace and sleep. The sprays and fluids they atomize in the atmosphere will stay for quite a while and have permanent effects once you have relied on qualified control services. Do not go for this step first because it is better to try getting rid of a bed bug on a remedy level first before taking a bigger step.
