Bed Bug Removal Methods


The first step in treating a bed bug infestation is to remove the bugs and their eggs. Infested items should be destroyed if possible, and clearly marked so that people who might inadvertently bring them into their homes will not be harmed. If you must discard a mattress or other furniture, carefully inspect it for evidence of the pests before taking it to the dump, and consider having it re-inspected by your pest control professional.

Which liquid is used for pest control?

A number of remedial and nonchemical controls are available to help manage bed bug infestations, although they cannot solve them alone. Vacuuming can remove many adult bed bug removal methods and nymphs from the outside of mattresses and box springs (remember to double bag the vacuum bags after cleaning and dispose of them outside). If your infested items are made of a fabric that can be laundered, washing them can also kill them. It is important to treat the entire room systematically, not just the bed and furniture. Look for and treat all the cracks and voids where the insects can hide. This includes behind baseboards, under carpet edging and in the recessed screw holes of furniture.

If the infestation is too severe to manage with heat treatment or a vacuum, then chemical treatments will be required. Your PMP will choose a low-risk product that is labeled for use on mattresses, box springs and the cracks and crevices of furniture, and apply it to all infested areas of the room systematically. The treatment should be repeated as often as needed until the bed bugs are gone.
