How Can You Prevent Bed Bugs Infestation in Your Home?

When someone shouts bedbugs!! The sound of it makes your skin crawl. Now imagine your house crawling with bed bugs, nightmare, right?

Well, you don’t have to get to that stage of living with these sneaky pests when you can actually prevent their infestation.

Bed bugs would come into your home if you’re using furniture that was previously infested or you’ve been to a house that is bed bug-infested. Here’s what you need to do:

    • Always inspect second-hand furniture before buying
      If you have to buy second-hand furniture, check every corner of the furniture, clean it thoroughly before placing it in your home.
      In fact, as a rule of thumb, never buy a second-hand mattress; they are the biggest hosts of bed bugs.
    • Always inspect your bedding for any signs of bed bugs
      You can never be too sure with bed bugs. So, when doing your regular cleaning, check the condition of your bed and see if there are any residues or signs of bed bugs.
      A sure way to find out about bed bug infestation is by placing bed bug receptors on your bedposts. This will verify their infestation.
      And in case you notice any bed bugs, you use bed bug encasements to cover your mattress to suffocate them and their eggs.
    • When traveling, always check the hotel rooms for bed bugs
      This might seem like an overdo, but at the end of the day, you don’t want to bring bed bugs to your home so you should do whatever it takes. If you are not so sure about the situation, avoid unpacking.
      You can also wash everything from your journey outside before bringing them inside for extra protection.
