Bedbugs measure just 5 millimeters across, which is smaller than a pencil eraser. These bugs are smart and tough, and they reproduce quickly. Bedbugs know where to hide to avoid detection and can live for months between meals. A female can lay 500 eggs in her lifetime.

It’s no surprise that these tiny bloodsuckers can cause a lot of trouble in your home. If they get into bed with you, they can leave red, itchy welts all over your body.

Certain factors can make bedbugs harder to remove. You may have a tougher time ridding your home of them if you have a lot of clutter or you travel often and bring new bedbugs home in your luggage.

Read on for a step-by-step guide on getting rid of bedbugs.


1. Make sure you really have bed bugs, not fleas, ticks or other insects.

You can compare your insect to the pictures on our Identifying bed bugs Web page or show it to your local extension agent. (Extension agents are trained in pest control issues and know your local area.)

2. Don’t panic!

It can be difficult to eliminate bed bugs, but it’s not impossible. Don’t throw out all of your things because most of them can be treated and saved. Throwing stuff out is expensive, may spread the bed bugs to other people’s homes and could cause more stress.

3. Reduce the number of hiding places — Clean up the clutter.

A cluttered home provides more places for bed bugs to hide and makes locating and treating them harder. If bed bugs are in your mattress, using special bed bug covers (encasements) on your mattress and box springs makes it harder for bed bugs to get to you while you sleep. Leave the encasements on for a year. Be sure to buy a product that has been tested for bed bugs and is strong enough to last for the full year without tearing.

4. Regularly wash and heat-dry your bed sheets, blankets, bedspreads and any clothing that touches the floor.

This reduces the number of bed bugs. Bed bugs and their eggs can hide in laundry containers/hampers Remember to clean them when you do the laundry.

5. Do-it-yourself freezing may not be a reliable method for bed bug control.

While freezing can kill bed bugs, temperatures must remain very low for a long time. Home freezers may not be cold enough to kill bed bugs; always use a thermometer to accurately check the temperature. Putting things outside in freezing temperatures could kill bed bugs, but there are many factors that can affect the success of this method.

6. Kill bed bugs with heat, but be very careful.

Raising the indoor temperature with the thermostat or space heaters won’t do the job. Special equipment and very high temperatures are necessary for successful heat treatment. Black plastic bags in the sun might work to kill bed bugs in luggage or small items, if the contents become hot enough. Bed bugs die when their body temperatures reaches 45°C (113°F). To kill bed bugs with heat, the room or container must be even hotter to ensure sustained heat reaches the bugs no matter where they are hiding

7. Don’t pass your bed bugs on to others.

Bed bugs are good hitchhikers. If you throw out a mattress or furniture that has bed bugs in it, you should slash or in some way destroy it so that no one else takes it and gets bed bugs.

8. Reduce the number of bed bugs to reduce bites.

Thorough vacuuming can get rid of some of your bed bugs. Carefully vacuum rugs, floors, upholstered furniture, bed frames, under beds, around bed legs, and all cracks and crevices around the room. Change the bag after each use so the bed bugs can’t escape. Place the used bag in a tightly sealed plastic bag and in an outside garbage bin.

9. Turn to the professionals, if needed.

If you cannot wipe out bedbugs on your own, it’s time to get the pros involved. Chogon Facilities Services Ltd have professional exterminator officers (fumigators) who have the advantage of using chemicals and other treatments that are not available to you. They have insecticides that both kill bugs on contact and that stay inside furniture and cracks to kill bedbugs in the long term. You can reach them via: +2348072292381

How To Prevent Bed bugs From Infesting Your Homes

As with most things, it’s much easier to prevent bedbugs than it is to treat them. There are a few things you can do to stop bedbugs infesting your home, including:

  1. Vacuum regularly

Vacuuming is one of the easiest ways to remove any stray bedbugs. Whilst it’s not enough to deal with a whole infestation, vacuuming regularly will go some way to keeping the area bug-free.

  1. Check second-hand furniture

When bringing second-hand furniture into your home, you should always consider what’s lurking inside. Always check for any signs of bedbugs before purchasing anything.

If there are signs of bedbugs, recognize that just getting rid of them will be a project in itself.

  1. Take precautions when laundering

Bedbugs travel in furniture and on clothes. If you share laundry facilities, you should always take extra precautions to avoid picking up anyone else’s bugs.

Always transport clothes to and from the launderettes in sealed plastic bags, and leave them out for as little time as possible.

How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs/How To Kill Bed Bugs

The following simple steps can be taken to Kill bedbugs and completely eradicate bed bugs.

  • Once you discover you have bedbugs, act quickly. If you can detect the bedbugs early on and it’s a low-level isolated infestation, it’s completely treatable on your own. It just takes diligence and perseverance. The first step should be a thorough inspection of your home. Start at the bed and work your way out from there with a high-powered flashlight, looking in every crack and crevice.
  • Vacuum up the bedbugs or kill them with alcohol or by hand. As long as you’re actively searching for the bedbugs, they’re pretty easily killed once you find them. For instance, you can remove them by vacuuming them up (being sure to dispose of the vacuum bag), or you can wipe down the area with at least 80% strength isopropyl alcohol.
  • Consider hiring a professional if you can’t figure out where the bedbugs are hiring. At our firm, we perform Integrated Pest Management, which means we try to use as little insecticide as possible. Our company relies on using certified canines for scent detection, which gives us pretty accurate results in terms of where the bedbug activity is isolated to. That helps us determine the course we need to take for treatment.
