Learning About Natural Pest Control

Hello. My name is Petunia. Welcome. I would like to share my experience with natural pest control tactics with you through this site. I am deathly afraid of all insects that crawl and fly. When an insect enters my living space, I have to call in reinforcements to help me remove the invader. I do not believe in using chemicals when natural substances can do the job, however. Therefore, I started to become adept at using natural pest control tactics to keep pests from entering my home in the first place. I hope you can use the information on my site to keep your home pest free. Thanks.

3 Vital Steps to Eliminate a Bed Bug Infestation

Blog

Have you been waking up with itchy bites on your body? Did you discover that these bites have been caused by bed bugs? Contrary to what some people might think, having bed bugs doesn't automatically mean that you are dirty or unclean. All it may take is a couple tiny bugs hitching a ride home from the gym, the office, school, or anywhere else. Unfortunately, bed bugs can be extremely difficult to eradicate. Here are some things to try if you discover bed bugs in your home.

Move furniture: Bed bugs love to live in dark crevices such as the ones created by having beds, couches, and other furniture pressed up against the wall. Although moving your furniture away from the walls may temporarily make your rooms feel smaller, it will also help to eliminate some of the places that bed bugs like to hide. The fewer places there are for the bed bugs to hide, the easier it will be to locate and eradicate the ones that are left. 

Hire a professional: To get rid of all the bed bugs in your home, it's a good idea to hire a bed bug exterminator. Bed bugs can be extremely resistant to many methods of pest control that you might attempt to use yourself. But a bed bug exterminator has the experience to know what works in your area and the tools to make sure that the infestation gets taken care of completely. While it may take a few visits from the bed bug exterminator to be free of these pests, calling a professional will still be much faster and easier than trying to take care of everything on your own.

Wash bedding: It's not uncommon to change bedding every few days, perhaps once or twice a week. But during a bed bug infestation, this is too much time between washing, because it leaves bed bugs with plenty of places to hide and reproduce. Bedding should be changed frequently, and the bedding should be washed and dried at high temperatures. If your bedding cannot withstand high temperatures without being damaged, launder it and seal it up in airtight bags before replacing your bedding with ones that won't be damaged by the high temperatures. Bed bugs are sensitive to high temperatures and will perish after a relatively short trip through a very hot dryer, which is why you need to use more resilient bedding while eliminating the bed bugs. Talk to your bed bug exterminator about how long to leave your original bedding sealed up before you can use it again.
