Bedbugs often hide in the seams and crevices of furniture. Inspect these areas thoroughly and treat as needed. Look for eggs, which indicate an infestation, and dead and shed skin. Then use an insecticide dust to kill the bugs. If you have small electronics, place them in Nuvan Strips bags to keep them out of reach of bedbugs.
In the event that you cannot wash the items that are infested, use a steamer. These devices have strong heat and can kill bedbugs on contact. If possible, avoid using the steamer near wall outlets. Also, keep the area around your bed free of clutter. If there are stuffed animals and shoes around the bed, keep them off the floor. Lastly, place bed bug interceptors on furniture legs.
Insecticides for bedbugs come in spray, dust, and aerosol forms. Use these products in combination with other methods to kill bed bugs. The product you choose should be applied to interior cabinetry, including the sides and bottom of drawers. You should also remove all the clothes from the drawers and wash them.
Home remedies for bedbugs can include applying Diatomaceous Earth, a natural substance that kills bed bugs. Be sure to label the product, as it is not for all insects. Be patient, and make sure to wash bed sheets weekly.
