How can you get rid of bed bugs?

    Getting rid of bed bugs is tricky business, namely because you should never use insecticide on a mattress you sleep on. The best way would be to sanitize your mattress by vacuuming, and possibly applying a plastic cover. Machine wash all linens and sheets while you vacuum and that should do the trick. Good luck!

    If you’ve positively identified your problem as a bed bug infestation, it is time to sanitize the affected areas. If you can spare money for another mattress it would be a good idea to throw your old one out. If you can’t afford another mattress, vacuuming the mattress and applying a sealable cover should be sufficient. Meanwhile, all clothes, linens, and bedding should be washed in hot water, and the immediate area vacuumed thoroughly.

    Insecticides are not an option to get rid of bed bugs, because insecticides should never be applied to an area where you sleep. Sticky traps, like those used for mice, are a good way to capture rogue bed bugs that have managed to escape your domestic exorcism. Some insecticides like Boric Acid might be used in areas around the bed, but never on the mattress itself.
