Bedbugs are insects that are mainly active at night. They are typically found in mattresses, bed frames, and box springs. Then, they spread to other areas.
Bedbugs are initially painless and then, turn into itchy welts. Sometimes, they can be mistaken as a mosquito bite. Bed bugs usually leave blood stains on bedding and a musty odor. They also leave rusty spots on the bedding.
Fortunately, there are various ways to get rid of bedbugs. The first step is to clean up areas that contain the bugs. Here are some ways to get rid of bed bugs:
-Clean all contaminated items, such as bedding and linens, in hot water. Then, place them in the dryer, on the highest setting. Other items that can’t be washed should be also placed in the dryer.
-To kill bedbugs and their eggs, spray them with rubbing alcohol.
-Purchase bed bug mattress covers. They help seal the bedbugs and keep them from spreading. They also make treatments easier.
-Vacuum your mattress and box springs frequently. Then, immediately place the vacuum bag in a plastic bag and place it in the dumpster outdoors.
– Repair any cracks or holes, using plaster. Also, glue down any peeling wallpaper. This helps to get rid of places they can hide.
