How Do I Get Rid of Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are nasty, insidious creatures that like to come out under the cover of darkness to feed on your blood while you’re sleeping. These ugly bugs are attracted to body heat and the carbon dioxide expelled from the mouths of people.
Once they bite you their saliva contains an anti-coagulant so you keep bleeding and they keep feeding, producing nasty and very itchy bites that can take weeks to heal.
If left untreated, these critters will breed like crazy and take over your home. You don’t want that.
How Do I Combat Bed Bugs?
The obvious choice is to call in a professional pest control expert who deals with bed bugs, but there are some things you can do yourself to help combat and eradicate the problem.
Bed bugs have flat bodies and love to hide in your bedding and mattress, bed bases and even under the skirting boards. When it’s time to feed they come out and attack.
Changing all the bed linen and thoroughly vacuuming the mattress, the carpets, along skirting boards, bed frames, everything, can help get rid of some bugs and eggs. It’s also a good idea to wash the curtains and to check inside wardrobes and examine any crevices where they might hide.
You might even want to consider getting rid of an infested mattress. There are bed bug sprays and bed bug dust you can use to kill them off. They’re also repelled by certain smells, such as peppermint and eucalyptus.
Steam cleaners can be employed to kill bed bugs hiding under skirting boards and within any cracks in the room. You can even get special bed bug traps to place under the legs of the bed (depending on the style of bed) so they can’t climb up the legs and attack.
