If you have found bed bugs in your bed, and you are sure that this is the only part of your home where they are located, you need to get started exterminating them. They can quickly go from your bed to the rest of your bedroom, or throughout your entire home if you aren't careful. These pests will bite you as you sleep, and if that's not a scary enough thought, they can attach themselves to you or your clothing and find their way through the rest of your home, or they may travel with you elsewhere. If you have bed bugs in your bed, there are ways to get rid of them that you can try yourself. Read on for helpful information.
Strip Your Sheets And Bedding
Strip your bed of all sheets and pillows. Remove your bedding and put it into your washing machine to wash it. Anything that will not fit or cannot be washed, such as throw pillows or blankets, you can put into a garbage bag that is sealed tightly so there isn't any air in the bag to kill the bed bugs that may be on these items. Your bedding that is washed should be washed in the hottest setting on your washing machine. It should also be set to the hottest setting on your dryer.
Vacuum Your Mattress And Box Spring
Vacuum your mattress and box spring to remove the bed bugs that are still alive that you can see, as well as any deceased bed bugs on your bed. Vacuum the top, bottom, sides, and underside of your mattress and box spring. When finished, you need to empty the contents into a trash bag that can be sealed tightly and placed into the trash outside of your home. When finished vacuuming, you should put your box spring and mattress into a protective bag to prevent bed bugs in your bed again.
Make Adjustments To Your Bed
Make the necessary adjustments to your bed to prevent bed bugs again in your bed. You need to pull your mattress away from the wall in your bedroom and pull the mattress and box spring away from the bed frame. Then place the legs of the bed into a shallow container to prevent bed bugs from being able to climb up the legs and into your bed ever again.
If you have found that you have bed bugs in your bed, take action to prevent them from spreading throughout your entire home.
