That Bed Is Mine! How to Rid Your Bed of Bed Bugs

How to Rid Your Bed of Bed Bugs | Clegg’s Pest Control

1024px-Bed_bug,_Cimex_lectulariusNobody wants to deal with bedbugs in the home. Not only are they dirty, but also they can create itchy bites on the body while you are sleeping. Although bedbugs are most often found in hotels, they may get into your home as well. Knowing how to address this problem successfully will give you confidence and the ammunition you need against these irritating bugs.

Noticing an Infestation

You may first be wondering if you have an infestation. Your first clue will most likely be itchy red welts that typically appear first around the ankles and waist, where clothes are tighter fitting. As you look around your bedroom, you may notice several other signs that point to bedbugs. You may wake up to red blood spots on your sheets. When you inspect your mattress, furniture and carpeting around the bed, you may notice small brownish spots from bedbug feces as well as from their shed skins.

How to Start

You can do a couple things yourself to begin the fight against these offensive insects. First, wash all of your bedding, curtains and clothing in hot water. If you have anything in your home that cannot be washed, such as shoes or stuffed animals, you should put these in the dryer on high for a half hour. Second, you will need to eliminate as many bedbug hiding places that you possibly can. Repair cracks in your walls, glue wallpaper back to the wall if it is peeling and clear excessive clutter away from your bed.

Professional Help

However, it is virtually impossible to get rid of bedbugs completely without the help of a professional exterminator. You may be able to eliminate some bedbugs yourself or take away their favorite hiding places, but a complete extermination is necessary to prevent a larger bedbug problem in the future. The exterminator will be able to inspect your residence to find where the bedbugs are hiding and can recommend the best course of action. He or she may use a chemical treatment, called a pesticide, or may use some other method, such as heat.

If you have any questions about bedbugs or if you are in need of pest control services, contact Clegg’s online or phone at 888-672-5344. Clegg’s has the knowledge and experience to take care of your bug infestation.
