Exterminating Bed Bugs Without Using Chemicals

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Exterminating bed bugs can be a huge challenge, but it doesn't necessarily mean you want to fill your home with chemicals. These pests are typically found in hotels, movie theaters and even clothing stores. The bugs travel in cloth and thus make their way into your home in suitcases, purses and clothes. When bed bugs enter a new environment, they make themselves at home in your sheets, mattress, carpet, clothing, and even the crevices in the walls. They come out at night to feed on warm-blooded mammals like humans, cats and dogs. Bed bugs are incredibly difficult to get rid of. Chemical treatments often prove ineffective. The bugs can go six months without feeding and will retreat into the walls when chemicals are sprayed. Natural alternatives are a better option and exterminators often recommend them in addition to their own chemical treatments. There is a natural spray made out of peppermint and clove oil that can be purchased online. It should be sprayed on all dust cracks and crevices in the infested room and if possible, the whole home. The first course of action is to wash all cloth in the infested rooms. This includes curtains, sheets, and clothing. If possible, wash the cloth in the entire home since the bugs can travel between the walls. Use hot water. The biggest problem is the mattress. Though it can be expensive, unless the mattress is entirely protected by a plastic cover, the best course of action is to invest in a new one as well as a new box spring. Mattresses are a favorite place for bed bugs to hide (hence the name) and since they cannot be washed, it is almost impossible to eradicate them from a mattress. When buying a new mattress, definitely invest in a mattress cover in case the bed bugs return. Bed bugs are a pain to get rid of, but by combining several tried and true techniques, they can be beaten! Use High Temperature Steam To Kill Bed Bugs Instantly

You must move the steamer head in close contact with all the surfaces you are treating – this is the only way to ensure that the bugs are treated with the highest possible temperature and make sure that they are killed instantly. Another tip I have read online suggests that the temperature of the steam emitted from the cleaner head can be raised by wrapping the head in a tea towel and by this means a temperature high enough to be lethal to the bed bugs and their eggs can be achieved several inches from the head which can help to ensure that 'difficult to get at' areas can also be treated effectively (obviously, you may have to replace the tea towel periodically as it becomes moist). Use Steam Wherever Bed Bugs May Be Hiding

Use steam wherever bed bugs may lurk. The most likely areas include the floor under and around the bed, the bed itself, carpet edges, furniture and soft furnishings. You cannot use steam on polished wooden surfaces or on any item that might be damaged by the high temperatures generated – if in doubt, check with the manufacturer or test on a small inconspicuous area and allow to dry to test for colour-fastness before continuing.
