How Can I Get Rid of Bed Bugs?
- Take out infested items. Place the items in a plastic bag and then treat them. The sections below provide information on treatment options.
- You can store items that are not able to be treated in a plastic bag for up to one year. This will ensure that any active bugs have died.
- After each use, empty the vacuum. You can seal the bag tightly and throw it away immediately in an outdoor trash can.
- If you are unable to eliminate bed bugs safely, it is best to dispose of furniture responsibly. It should be destroyed so that no one else will try to take it home. Take this example:
- Spray paint can be used to mark furniture with "Bed Bugs."
- Remove stuffing from furniture pieces and rip covers.
- Spray paint can be used to mark furniture with "Bed Bugs."
- Get infested items taken to the trash collection agency as soon as you can.
- If you are able to safely remove bed bugs from furniture, don't throw it away.

The Life Cycle of a Bed Bug
Reddish-brown, nocturnal bed bugs feed on the blood and tissues of warm-blooded animals. These wingless insects are able to hide in places such as carpets, floors, and beds thanks to their dorsoventrally flattened body.
An egg is the first thing that a bedbug eats. It should be grain-like and milky white. One to five eggs are laid each day by female bed bugs. They can lay up to 500 eggs in one lifetime. Eggs can be laid in single or multiple eggs and placed in tight cracks or crevices. The egg measures approximately 1mm in length, and is roughly the same size as two grains of salt. Eggs hatch within two weeks and then immature bed bugs start to feed immediately.
The five molts that these young bed bugs (or nymphs) go through before they reach maturity are called five molts. Although they look similar to adults, nymphs are smaller and less sexually mature than adults. Young nymphs have a yellowish-white color. Adults and older nymphs, on the other hand, are reddish brown. Each nymph needs a blood meal to successfully complete the molting stage. Nymphs become adults in five weeks at room temperature.
Adult bed bugs often receive weekly meals after reaching adulthood.
How Long Can They Live?
A bed bug's life span is typically between four and six months. Some bed bugs can live up to one year in cool conditions with no food.
Bed Bug Infestation Facts and Information
Bed bug infestations have nothing to do about cleanliness. They can be found in high-end hotels and can travel into homes that are clean. You can reduce the risk of expensive bed bug infestations by catching them early.
- Eliminate all clutter in your home. This will make it easier to find bed bugs.
- Use the highest temperature possible to dry your bed linens.
- Before you bring any second-hand furniture into your home, make sure to inspect it for bed bugs.
- Don't bring furniture that has been thrown away into your home. There is a reason for it being there.
- Regularly inspect your home after a move-in, a trip, or when guests are staying overnight.
Bed Bugs In Comforters
Bed bugs hide in tight places and emerge at night to seek out hosts. Bed bugs can hide behind picture frames, in boxes, cabinets, walls, and behind books and baseboards. Bed bugs also love comforters.
You can control bed bugs using a comforter by placing it in your dryer at high heat. This will kill eggs, nymphs, and adults.
Protect your linens once you have eliminated all bed bugs from your bedding by wrapping them in plastic bags. Make sure you seal any openings. Avoid insecticides as they are ineffective and can leave behind stains and unpleasant odors.
It is extremely difficult to eradicate bed bugs on your own. For bed bug control, contact a professional pest control company.
Bed Bugs In Mattress Covers
Bed bugs prefer to live in small, protected areas where they can accumulate and are not easily noticed. Mattress covers and cracks in beds are common places where bed bugs can be found. Mattress covers, comforters, cushions, and cushioned furniture may contain bed bug fecal spots, which is the dried excrement from bed bugs. The skins of mating bed bug nymphs are shed during development and can often be found within or around infested material. If you look closely, you can often see bed bugs if they are present at the source. Bed bugs love hiding places in mattress seams and mattress covers, particularly on the underside. Additionally, the mattress, mattress covers, and other parts of a bed are close to people's homes, so bed bugs don't need to expend much energy in order to find suitable blood meals.
Bed bug infestations can be treated with over-the-counter products, but they are often ineffective. While vacuuming and washing at high temperatures can provide temporary relief, it is possible that bed bugs are present in the mattress and sheets. For an assessment of a possible bed bug infestation, please contact your local pest management professional.
