Helpful Way to Keep Natural Bed Bug Pest Control Long Term


 
Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
If you feel you cannot afford to hire a professional, and want to attempt do-it-yourself bed bug control, there are some things you can do. With diligence and patience and some hard work you have a fighting chance of getting rid of bed bugs in your home.

Bed bugs are not only disgusting, they're an expensive problem to have. So, how can you get rid of these pests without burning through your budget?

Many of the methods to get rid of bed bugs can be easily found in your home and local home improvement stores. Use one or more of these tips to kill bed bugs in your home.

Pesticides alone are not the answer to bed bugs. Most of the commonly used pesticides today, including professional products and consumer products advertised for control of bed bugs, are at best moderately effective at controlling these pests. Pesticides must be used with care for safety and with attention to proper application to work well.

If you want to try an herbal solution in your home, or are staying in a location where bed bugs might be present, there is a spray you can make that will discourage them. It will keep bed bugs away from both you and your bedding.

Current methods of fighting the biting insects, such as using pesticides, freezing, heating and vacuuming, can be costly and unreliable.

Recently, though, researchers heard of a traditional Balkan remedy for bedbugs, a centuries-old technique used in Bulgaria, Serbia and other Eastern European countries. Bean leaves scattered on the floor next to beds seem to entrap the bugs as they scurry along the floor at night. The insect-encrusted leaves are then burned the next morning. Bean leaves could theoretically be used to control bedbugs, but the vegetation dries out and so does not last very long. Moreover, the leaves cannot easily be used in places other than floors.

Isolating bedbugs, along with preventing these brown bugs from spreading further, is one good step to start with. Cracks and crevices of bed frames should be examined, especially if the frame is wood. It also pays well to inspect cracks and corners of dressers; seams, tufts, skirts, and crevices beneath cushions of upholstered chairs and sofas; cracks in wood molding; ceiling-wall junctures; and behind picture frames, switch plates, and outlets.[2]

Bedbugs can (and should) be forced to get out from their hideouts. This can be done by using either a putty knife or a playing card. Once bedbugs have been forced out of their dwelling place such as cracks and crevices, one can catch them with a sticky packing tape or crush them in paper towels.

The powder of diatomaceous earth, a kind of soft sedimentary rock, can be used in a dry environment to control bedbugs. The dust-like powder of this rock can stay on the bedbugs' outer layer of exoskeleton. This disrupts the layer and dehydrates the insects. Also, upon walking on diatomaceous earth, the bedbugs carry the diatomaceous earth along with them through their legs and they lick it off. The sharp silica damages their insides and kills them.

Essential oils like tea tree oil, manuka oil, or oregano oil appear to be effective in alleviating itching and swelling from bedbug bites. As bedbug killers, they are effective too. Essential oils "suffocate" the insects by blocking their spiracles (the external openings of the bedbugs' respiratory system). Tea tree oil in particular can be combined with water into a spray bottle. Then, the mixture is used to lightly mist one's furniture, sheets, pillows, or any areas where bedbugs have been spotted. Cedar oil and orange oil are natural pest control remedies to eradicate bedbugs. These oils only work however upon contact on the insects (i.e., contact kill).
