One way to prevent bedbug infestation is to use a bed bug spray. These sprays are available for use on mattresses, pillows, furniture, and carpets. They are also great to use when traveling. Bedbugs are a common problem in hotels and hostels these days. Be sure to spray your luggage and your bed before you leave.
To spray bedbugs, fill an empty spray bottle with vinegar and apply it to the affected areas. You can also use bottles from Dollar Tree, ULINE, or UPC to spray the perimeter of a room. This will send the bugs scattering into the surrounding areas. If the infestation is severe, you’ll need to hire a pest control service.
Another method is to use a residual powder insecticide. This type of spray will kill bed bugs for several years. The spray should be applied to the travel areas of the bed, such as near the bed legs, and underneath baseboard trim. Applied to these areas regularly, the residual powder will kill bed bugs for good.
When looking for a pest control service, it’s important to get a sample of the infestation from the affected area. The bug bite is often itchy, and you can usually tell if you have an infestation if you see feces on the mattress. Additionally, you can look for an empty exoskeleton in the mattress and notice black feces in the corners.
