Got Bed Bugs Sleeping With You? How To Get Them Out Of Your Bed

If you have bed bugs sleeping with you at night, you may find it difficult to get them out. Fortunately, there are things you can do so you can start sleeping better. Below are two of these things to help you get started in this process.

Use Heat Treatment

There is a heat treatment that can kill bed bugs and their eggs. This works extremely well, and when finished, most of the bed bugs will be dead. There are some bed bugs, however, that may run to cooler places to get away from the heat. Because of this, you should use the heat treatment along with other measures to completely rid your home of these bed bugs.

Heat treatment must be done by professionals. This is because you will not have the equipment that is needed, and this can be dangerous if you do not know what you are doing. The company will bring in large electric heaters into your bedroom and turn up the heat to high temperatures. They may also use a different method, which includes blowing hot air through your duct system. The heat comes from a propane heater that is used outdoors. You could not turn the heating system up in your home high enough in order to do this process.

Heat dries out the bugs' bodies and does this quickly. Sensors are used in the room so the professional can monitor the temperature. The process takes around an hour or so

Have Your Home Sprayed

It may be better to contact a pest control company to spray your home before using heat treatment. This way many of the bed bugs will already be dead so there is a higher chance that the heat treatment will work to kill all bed bugs. You can also have your home sprayed after the heat treatment process is finished to kill any bed bugs that may have hid from the heat. 

The pest control company will likely spray your entire home as the bed bugs may venture from your bedroom. They will remove your mattress as well as all bedding to ensure they get the entire mattress and box springs. 

The pest control company may ask to come to your home a second time just in case there were eggs hidden from the heat that lived.

The pest control company can give you tips on keeping bed bugs from coming back again. If you need bed bug heat treatment, contact a pest control service in your area.
