How are you going to tell if you have a problem with bed bugs?

If you currently suffer from bed bugs you will want to know how to get rid of bed bugs yourself at home. No matter how cautious you are it is still possible for you contract this problem. If you find that you have an infestation it is important for you to start treatment as soon as possible as this type of critter can multiply by the thousands in a short time.The first thing that you want to do when it comes to treatment is to identify where the source is coming from. It is true that these bugs can be found in beds, hence the name, but there are other places in which they like to hide. You should also check other soft furniture as well as any cracks and crevices in the walls as this is another place they like to hide in. Once you have identified their hiding spots it will help you get better control over the situation.

The next step you will want to take is to machine wash all linens and clothing in your home. The heat from the dryer works well when it comes to killing any bugs that might be in your linens. After that you will want to vacuum your entire home from top to bottom including furniture. Once you have completed this task it is important to dispose of the vacuum bag and thoroughly clean your machine.

Throwing out and replacing mattresses is the most effective way to get rid of bed bugs. If that is not an option for you there are some ways in which you can treat them instead. You can vacuum the mattress thoroughly and then use a steamer to steam the mattress. Once this is completed you can then spray it with a bug spray. You will then want to encase the mattress to cut the bugs off from their food source which would be humans.

If you notice any cracks in your walls you will want to make sure that you patch them so the bedbugs can no longer go through them.

After you have completed all of these steps there are a variety of sprays and powders to kill bed bugs that you can use in your home. Then it is important that you watch closely to make sure none of the bugs escaped treatment. If they come back you need to catch it as soon as possible before another infestation takes place and you are back to the original problems you had.
