Bedbug Basics

Sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite! What happens when the bedbugs do bite though? The first step to treating bedbugs is identifying if you actually have bedbugs, the first sign is typically red bites on your arms and shoulders but not limited to those areas, also look for the bugs themselves. They are pretty small but can usually be seen with the naked eye, get a magnifying glass if you need to. The bugs usually hangout in or along the seams of the bed.

The next step is the treatment part. You want to take all of your bedding and soak it in hot water; this can be done in your bathtub. After you have soaked your bedding for about an hour, take your bedding and put it in the dryer. Now to treat the mattress, boxspring, and bed frame, vacuum every surface of each of them focusing on the seams in which the bugs can hide in. Also vacuuming other areas of the room is a good idea considering the bed isn’t the only place the bugs can hide. Once you have vacuumed the bed you will want to spray it with an insecticide. Make sure it is meant for bedbugs and indoor use before spraying your bed. It is also not a bad idea to spray your bedding and other parts of the bedroom with the insecticide as well as a final precaution.

Also note that bedbugs are extremely hard to get rid of and many of the do it yourself methods don’t work out. If that is the case, the best thing you can do is contact a professional exterminator to come fix the problem. Good luck!
