How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs In 7 Easy Steps

(Permanently)

Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on human blood, often found in bedding and furniture, known for their itchy bites and ability to spread quickly in living spaces.

If you've discovered bed bugs in your home, but don't want to have to pay for pest control services, I'm going to show you how to get rid of bed bugs in just seven easy steps...

Begin by meticulously inspecting your home, focusing on bedding, furniture, and tight crevices, to locate areas of infestation by identifying bed bugs, their eggs, and fecal spots.

INSPECTION

Vacuum all affected areas thoroughly and consistently, including mattresses, carpets, and furniture, to remove bed bugs and their eggs, and immediately dispose of the vacuum bag in a sealed container.

VACUUMING

Wash all fabrics, such as bedding, curtains, and clothing, in hot water, followed by drying on the highest heat setting possible to effectively kill bed bugs and their eggs.

HOT WASHING

Employ a steam cleaner on mattresses, upholstered furniture, and carpets, as the high heat of the steam can penetrate deep into fabrics and kill bed bugs and eggs on contact.

STEAM CLEANER

Seal any cracks and crevices in walls, floorboards, and around electrical outlets with caulk to eliminate potential hiding and breeding places for bed bugs, thereby preventing further infestation.

SEAL UP CRACKS

Apply diatomaceous earth, a natural insecticide, around bed frames, mattress edges, and other affected areas; its abrasive nature effectively dehydrates and kills bed bugs upon contact.

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH

Continue regular inspections and reapplications of treatments, including using apple cider vinegar as a natural contact spray in affected areas, to ensure all bed bugs are eliminated and to prevent re-infestation.
