Bed bugs are small insects that are oval and usually brown in color. They feed on blood from humans or animals. They can be quite embarrassing if they appear when guests are around. Here are ways to get rid of bed bugs at home:
The first step is to clean up places where the bedbugs are.
Clean your beddings, curtains and clothes using hot water and then dry them in hot sun.
Scrub mattress seams using a stiff brush to kill the bedbugs and their eggs before you begin to vacuum.
Vacuum the house thoroughly. After you are done, put the vacuum in a plastic bag and put it outside.
Repair cracks using palster and glue to avoid creating room for bedbugs to hide.
On matters concerning the mattress, if it has been infested, you may need to get rid of it and get a new one. Be careful to ensure that the new one does not get infested too.
Having bedbugs in your home should not be mistaken for uncleanliness. You might tidy but still have bedbugs living with you.
