How To Get Rid Of Bedbug Infestations

Home Improvement,Education
Oh, those disgusting bedbugs! They latch onto luggage or clothes during a vacation and invade our homes. They can travel from one apartment to another and take over a whole building. And they're so tiny and sneaky - you might not even know they're in your home until they start biting.

If you're ready to declare war on bedbugs, here's your battle plan in order to effectively get rid of bedbug:

Locate the Enemy

Start in the place where you've been bitten - usually a bed or sofa. Use a bright flashlight to help you examine the area completely. Remove all cushions (for a sofa) or pillowcases, sheets, and blankets (for a bed) and place each one into a plastic trash bag.

Work your way slowly down to the box spring and frame. By this time, you'll have seen some sign of bedbugs if your home is infested. The bugs look like little black dots, and their eggs resemble tiny grains of rice.

Assemble Your Weapons

Buy some Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. This is a completely natural substance made from fossilized plants ground to a fine dust. Wear a mask and gloves when you handle it, as it will harm your lungs if you breathe it in - and make sure you're buying Food Grade DE, because this is the kind that will kill bedbugs.

Put the DE into a plastic ketchup bottle or some other container that has a squirt top. Then, in a spray bottle, mix one part each of ethyl alcohol and water, and one-half part of liquid dish soap. You'll also need a good vacuum cleaner with furniture attachments and several vacuum cleaner bags.

Launch Your Attack

Wash anything in the area of infestation that can be laundered. Use the hottest water your washing machine allows. After washing, dry them on the very hottest setting of your dryer, and let the dryer continue working for at least 30 minutes after everything is dry.

Then vacuum completely - this includes cracks in floorboards, underneath the covers of electrical outlets, and any other tiny opening that's visible. Pay attention to bed frames and box springs, as well as furniture legs and bottoms. When you're finished, take the vacuum cleaner bag outside and dispose of it in a trash container.

Next, spray everything down thoroughly with your liquid spray mix. If you see eggs, pick them up with a piece of masking tape, seal them in a plastic bag with a little bit of DE and take them immediately to the outside trash. Vacuum up any bugs you've killed with the spray, and get the vacuum cleaner bag into the outside trash right away.

Now it's time to go nuclear on those little critters. Take your ketchup bottle full of DE (remember to wear a mask and gloves) and lightly dust every nook and cranny with your deadly weapon. Make a tiny cut in the liner underneath bed and sofa frames, and get the dust all the way inside. Dust every crack in the floor, every joint in furniture frames, and don't forget those electrical outlets!

Your battle is now over. But the war has just begun. Bedbug eggs hatch about every five weeks, so you'll need to repeat this treatment every four or five weeks for several months. This battle plan will work if you can stick to it - so don't give up!
