13 Ingenious Ways to Get Rid Of Bed Bugs for Good
.Bed bugs have been a bane on human civilization for centuries so much so that idioms like “sleep tight and do not let the bugs bite” have become common in English language. These blood-sucking monsters are small and hide under the crevices if beds or our rugs, carpets or mattresses and no matter how much we brush or beat the mattresses or sun the bed they still come back with vengeance. But thanks to modern science and human ingenuity we can beat them at their own game and make sure they never come back ever.
1Steam away the bugs
According to one entomology department steaming can be effective in killing and chasing away these bloodsuckers. Steam all around the house especially the beds, mattresses, pillows, rugs and carpets. The steam forces them to come out of their crevices and high temperature of steam usually kills them too.
2Target the bugs with a hair dryer
As we know from the last point heat is lethal for the bed bugs so another way to annihilate them is to use hairdryer in the specific areas like beds, mattresses, pillows, inside the crevices or cracks in the bed etc. Better still try to locate their eggs as they do not move their eggs around and put the hairdryer on high which will kill them slowly but surely and save people from bites and allergies in the future.
3Apply double-sided tape
You can easily trace the bed bugs line of movements like ants and apply double-sided tapes and they will be stuck to the tape till they die famished or you can just smash them. Just keep replacing the tapes and keep putting fresh ones.
4Dry your clothes on high heat
Dry your clothes on high heat even if they are brand new as we have established heat is lethal to bed bugs this kills all of them hiding in your clothes new as well old ones. Do this exercise regularly to be bug-free for good.
