9Bedbugs

To get rid of bedbugs, take 10 drops of eucalyptus oil and mix it into one cup of water. Pour into a spray bottle, shake it thoroughly and then spray on items like your beds, mattresses and pillow seams. This will remove the bugs. Alternately to make the remedy even more effective, spray the mattresses and bedding and then place them in the sun. It would be a good idea to carry some eucalyptus essential oil if you travel often. You can wipe down your bedding in a hotel room by soaking a tissue with the oil.
