How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs From Bedding

Pest Control > Bed Bugs Control > Getting Rid of Bed Bugs From Bedding

If you have bed bugs in your home, you’re probably wondering how to get rid of them from your bedding. Here are a few tips to help you get started:


1. Exposure Your Bed To Hot Temperature

Start by laundering all of your bedding: curtains, sheets, clothing in hot water. This will kill any bed bugs that are currently on the fabric.


2. Use an Encasement

Once your bedding is clean, consider using a encasement to protect it from future infestations. Encase your mattress and box spring in a zippered cover to prevent bed bugs from getting inside.


3. Use a Vacuum

Inspect your bed frame and furniture for any signs of bed bugs. If you find any, vacuum them up and dispose of the bag immediately.


4. Remove Clutter

Keep your bedroom clean and clutter-free to reduce the risk of bed bugs returning. Regularly vacuum the floors and dust all surfaces to remove any potential hiding spots for bed bugs.

Following these tips can help you get rid of bed bugs from your bedding and prevent them from returning in the future. If you have any concerns or questions, be sure to speak with a professional pest control operator to get the best advice for your situation.


Where Do Bed Bugs Live and Hide?

As their name suggests, bed bugs typically live in beds or other areas where people sleep. They often hide in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards. Bedbugs can also live in other furniture, such as nightstands, dressers, and couches.

When they are not feeding on people, bed bugs hide in cracks and crevices in walls, floors, furniture, and doors. They may also be found in electrical outlets and appliances.


What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

Adult bed bugs are brown to reddish-brown, oval-shaped insects that are about 3/16 of an inch long—about the size of a penny. They are flat, which allows them to squeeze into tiny hiding places.

Young bed bugs (called nymphs) are smaller and lighter in colour. They look like mini versions of the adults.


Bed Bug Bites

People who are bitten by bed bugs often have red, itchy welts on their skin. Bed bug bites usually happen at night, and most people don’t realise they have been bitten until they wake up in the morning.

Some people don’t have any reaction to bed bug bites, while others may have an allergic reaction that can range from mild to severe.


Consult a Pest Control Specialist

DIY methods do not always work well. Pesticides may not help to get rid of hidden eggs, and thus you would need heat treatment to get rid of bedbugs for good.

If you think you have bed bugs, it’s best to consult a pest control specialist that offers reliable bed bugs treatment in Singapore.

They will be able to inspect your home and furniture, and let you know for sure if you have bedbugs. They can also provide advice on how to get rid of them.
