BED BUG TREATMENT
Dealing with bed bug bites? Thankfully, you can typically treat them right at home. Over-the-counter pain medication and anti-itch creams can help with the side effects.
If you have a mild case of bed bug bites, you may have things in your pantry to help heal them. This includes baking soda and water, toothpaste, witch hazel, and aloe vera gel!
For guaranteed bed bug control, it’s always recommended to get help from a professional exterminator. Heat treatments, steam treatments, and insecticides are among the options.
Baking soda is said to kill bed bugs by dehydrating them. There is no evidence that baking soda will work to get rid of an entire infestation, but it’s rumored to be a temporary solution.
While it’s best to address a bed bug problem with professional treatment, there are several ways you can lessen the severity of an infestation, including washing bedding and vacuuming.
To help control a bed bug problem, you can wash your clothes and bedding in a hot water wash. Always be cautious in transporting any infested items to the laundry room to avoid spreading the pests.
No, you do not have to throw out any food after a bed bug infestation! Bed bugs have no interest in any of your food items and are rarely known to hide near food sources.
It’s important to never throw out your mattress, box spring, or any other item infested with bed bugs. Doing so can contribute to spreading the bed bug problem.
Bed bugs don’t always infest carpets. If and when they do, it’s important to thoroughly vacuum your carpets and rugs several times. Take caution in throwing away vacuum cleaner bags.
If you’ve scheduled a professional bed bug treatment, your pest control company will provide you with preparation instructions. This includes preparing to vacate your property for a few hours.
