After my niece had a serious reaction to pest control, I realized that we were up against a few big problems. For starters, I knew that we needed to identify the types of pests that we were struggling with, and then we needed to find green products that would be safe for her to be around. It was a little bit of a challenge at first, but within a few weeks we found a company that offered the perfect line of products. I wanted to start a blog completely committed to pest control, so I started this site. Read more about keeping your family safe here.
Pests such as bed bugs can easily get into your home, but getting them out is a bit more of a problem. Bed bugs can get in on luggage from your vacation, they can get into your home on new furniture you purchased, and they can also get into your home on your belongings after staying at someone else's home. If you have bed bugs, you're going to need to do something. See below for information to help you get rid of these bugs in your home.
Use Your Vacuum
Vacuuming your carpet and furniture often can help you get rid of bed bugs. You'll vacuum up whatever bugs are in your home, but you'll have to empty the contents of the canister in a garbage bag outside of your home. You're also going to need to seal the bag tightly so the bed bugs don't escape and get back into your home. Vacuum every area of your home and do so daily. Make sure to also vacuum your mattresses and other upholstered furniture as well.
Use Your Washer And Dryer
Use your washing machine and your dryer to help kill off bed bugs. Wash and dry all of your bedding and any stuffed animals that were on the bed in the hottest water and dry them in the hottest setting. If you can't wash and dry your belongings, put them into a plastic bag and seal them tightly. Place the items in a garage for 24-48 hours to kill off bed bugs that may be inside.
Use A Bug Bomb
Use a bug bomb in your home to kill off these pests and others as well. Bug bombs are safe to use indoors, although you will need to close off your home and not allow anyone in your home while the bug bomb is being used. Once the bug bomb is finished, you should air out your home and vacuum everything, then wipe down all surfaces. Continue to clean your home and watch for any more of these pests.
If you have bed bugs, you need to figure out if you have an infestation, meaning they're all over your house, then you need to get to work getting rid of this pest problem before it gets any worse. Hire a local bed bug exterminator to help you remove these pests from your home if you aren't able to get a handle on this issue on your own.Share
