How To Kill Bed Bugs

For a couple of weeks, my body became the feeding ground of bed bugs.  Almost every night, bed bugs fed on my blood which saw their them surviving and me suffering from intense itch, not to mention the possibility of contracting some dreaded disease from these nocturnal pests.

There are several methods to get rid of bed bugs as listed below:

  1. Move out of your home for 12 months – this is known to get rid of bed bugs because they will die from not feeding on you. However, cockroaches will be the head of your home.
  2. Take a big piece of fabric and seal the entire mattress in it – because your mattress is sealed, no bed bugs can get in or out of it causing all bed bugs and their youngs to starve inside the mattress.  They will die after 6 to 12 months or so, therefore, you cannot remove the mattress cover for that period.  I tried using a large plastic sheet sealed around the mattress but it caused uncomfortable sleep and heat too.  The other fact I found was that this method is good only to kill bed bugs in your mattress but not entirely since bed bugs can live just about anywhere; bed frames, cracks in the wall, curtains, etc.
  3. Drown them – bed bugs die easily when immersed in water.  Wash all your linens, fabrics (bed sheet, curtain, clothing, etc) that is in the room.
  4. Sun everything – take your mattress out into the sun and let the sun ray do their magic.  Remember to turn the mattress over for a good and even tan. If possible, take your bed frames out for sunning.  If you are really desperate, move your furnitures out into the sun too.  The heat from the sun either kills them or makes them leave.
  5. Use insect aerosol – Spray them with insect aerosol. I targeted the bed frames and furnitures but made one critical mistake, I used a non-water based aerosol which made my furnitures all oily and sticky.  Your room will stink for a few days, trust me on this.
  6. Use steam to kill bed bugs – Heat from the steam makes bed bugs pop like making popcorn. And if you are wondering where to get steam to the room, I used a steam iron. ;)
  7. Call for professional help – if you can afford their fees.  Any pest-control company should know what to do.

Good night;
sleep tight;
don’t let the bed bugs bite.

    Bed bugs are a pest and really hard to handle..

    I once had a bed bug problem too.. So I called the professional to come out and get rid of my bed bug problems. They had stated that bed bugs do not go away in just one treatment it usually takes 3-4 different treatments so they had recommend several different products that i could purchase online and use to treat the bed bugs.

    One of the products I found that was very useful is call Steri- Fab you spray it almost anywhere mattress, clothes and even carpets. Also using natural products such as rest easy is a good idea too, taking these types of product when your traveling so that you don’t bring them back with you. Also getting box spring and mattress encasements is a good idea it not only helps eliminate but help prevent them. If you try to cover your mattress and box spring with plastic the bed bugs will just chew right through it. Spraying the mattress and putting dust into the holes in the sides of the mattress before covering the infested mattress is a good idea.

    “If you try to cover your mattress and box spring with plastic the bed bugs will just chew right through it. ”

    Bedbugs cannot chew through plastic, come on.

    Bedbugs can live longer than 9 months encased in a plastic covered mattress. I know I tried it and then took off the plastic 9 months later.

    Bed bugs are a nightmare. This article might have been written with good intentions but it is misleading, and considering what a huge, disgusting, traumatizing head ache bed bugs are, I hate to see wrong information about them on the net. They live for longer than 6-12 months, it’s been recorded that bed bugs live up to 18 months without feeding.

    Also, bed bugs do not seem to drown because they don’t breathe the same way mammals do. It’s the heat that kills them. If you want to kill them with water, it has to be hot water. Putting clothes in the dryer with the high setting on works even better. But you can’t just expect regular water to kill them, unfortunately.

    Two last things: do not spray them with insect aerosol. They are highly resistant to pesticides and that is why it is absolutely necessary to call a profesionnal who knows how to deal with them. Spraying the wrong thing might actually spread them.

    Don’t think that you can beat this without the help of a professional, the problem will just get worse quicker.

    This article is very misleading. you really need to get a professional to treat a home with bed bugs, since “bombs” really havve no effect on them. Getting a allergen mattress cover(you can get them at walmart) is a real life saver, they only cost around $30 and $6 each for the pillow covers. They feel like fabric and are easy to sleep on, just make sure you keep them on for a very long time!

    just spray them with rubbing alcohol or spray the room with alco they will just die through it

  8. Brandyf1978 said,

    Rubbing alcohol has to be the 91% or higher.. also… make sure you vac your carpets several times a day, then empty container or change bag… I live in an apartment building that has a really bad problem and the landlords are only treating one apartment at a time… Personally they need to treat all of them since they can crawl out someone else’s door into yours! It also helps if the pest control company that you use looks well enough to see them…I had them back in July and was “cleared” at the end of August…. But I have spotted them again!… All of my beds are already in encasements so all I have to do now is start the whole vac the carpets and wash everything again.. I threw out my living room furniture back in the summer and right now I am sitting on coleman chairs… I am not even going to risk getting any furniture as that is a good home for them….. The toughest thing to do is wash wash wash all of the fabric in your home… vac all carpets several times a day… and yes the alcohol does work on contact but if you don’t spray the bug, the vapors don’t kill them. I did use the bombs that they sell at Lowe’s in between treatments from the pest control and I think that helped a lot… Best of luck to everyone..

    Man, ever since bed bugs invaded my precious territory, I’ve been constantly scratching my asses out. Jeez, I hate those bloody creatures, they certainly are bloody. At 1st I blamed the mosquitoes and every day wen i wake up i spray mosquito repellent, and every night when I go to sleep i spray it again. But, it is beds still so super freakin itchy so i checked my bed. I saw those bugs crawlin all over, EEKS! I immediately took repellent and sprayyyyyyyy. Then i threw the mattress and all my beds and pillows away. I bought new ones. But, bedbugs were still in crackies so im plannin to move away from my house

    Yawn… i hate bothering about silly old bed bugs. Just simply put all ur mattreses & beds & pillows e.t.c into the dryer, set tempreture to 140 degrees farenheit and say byebye to little biteys witeys. Of course, if some do survive by living in cracks or hookin on ur clothes, just put them under the sun or if u want the simplest way, call a pest controlling company. Personally, pest control companies dont rllycare bout u they just offer u products or giv u lousy advice so u gotta do it urself. And to any bed bugs readin this: I hate u.

    I live in Government housing with my 21 month elderly lady downstairs from me brought bedbugs into her home and somehow they got into my apartment. I have currently had them since November of 2010..I have called my apartment manager numerous of times, they came in and sprayed at least 3 times, I bought a new matress, washed everything that detaches from my house, i currently have no living room furniture in fear of further infestation and my new matress is covered in plastic…i bought my daughter a new matress and as standard child matresses come it is plastic…I have been staying at my grandmothers house and no bites…my apartment said they saw no signs of them so I went and spent one night by myself and woke up the next morning with small bites compared to the larger ones I had before..I called my apartment manager again and she told me they were finished treating and they would let me out of my lease if i wanted and insisted that i have to be dragging them back and forth but as i said before we stay at my gmas and never have we had a bite while there…im starting to think i cant get rid of them and i have a home of my own i cant even dwell in..i dont wish this upon ANYONE and like the guy says before me…to ANY bedbugs readin this: I hate you and hope death upon you all lol but seriously its a complete and total nightmare

    My girlfriend and I recently returned from a camping trip in Northern Michigan. A few days after returning home, I started to notice what appeared to be small bites and they were itchy! Taking no chances we immediately washed, dried and threw out ANY articles under suspicion. I immediately contacted our management office who in turn promptly set up an extermination visit for us the same day. Don’t take any chances. A few bed bugs, can turn into an infestation in a couple of months! Wish us luck….. I’d like to be able to sleep in peace again soon!

  16. Mona said,

    June 7, 2011 @ 4:51 pm

    When I noticed my infestation, I immediately washed all of my bed linens-sheets, blankets, mattress pads…ALL OF IT! I washed in the hottest water possible, and then immediately washed them a second time, this time adding bleach to the wash. I dried in hottest heat possible and then bagged all of my freshly washed items in clean plastic bags, tied them shut and put them in my car for 2 days in the summer heat. I’m pretty comfident this got the most of them.
    For my mattress and boxspring, I got mattress/boxspring cases that close and
    after wrestling them into the cases, I also sprinkled a 50/50 mix of pyretrin &
    diatomaceous earth (food grade) onto each BEFORE sealing. I also sprinkled this mixture around the perimeter of the room , allowing it rest on the floor for a day before vacuuming. I’m careful to wash bed linens AT LEAST once a week. I’ve also read they don’t like lavender oil….so, figuring it couldn’t hurt, I took a cotten ball wetted with lavender oil along all the edges of my dresser, along the corners of my closet and walls in my room. So far I’ve not seen anymore of the little pests, nor experienced any more bites. But the cat won’t sleep with me anymore …he doesn’t like the lavender either. :(

    Yeah, unfortunately i moved into an apartment unit that had past experiences with bed bugs. My land lord assured me there weren’t any in the building and they were gone. One week after moving in, my neighbor down stairs let us know she has them and to be watchful that the buggers might be heading up to my up stairs unit. She said she has been trying for the last 8 months to get rid of them…. sigh…so in an attempt at prevention before they come up to my unit i have encased everything i own in plastic bags, books, clothes, toys, you name it, its gone into ziplock bags, i figure maybe i can save a few things. But what a nightmare, living out of zip lock bags has got to suck. The moment i see a bed bug in my unit, i’m out of here, that is of course after fumigation…. the worst part about it all is the fear that you’ll just take one bed bug with you to the next place and that one bug might start a whole new colony and the process starts all over again, once you thought it was safe….. i guess we all have headaches over this situation… Good luck

    Ok .. I hate bed bugs !!

    I have paid for a company to come in and treat my house, it cost me close to $1000.00 and four treatment later I still found bed bugs …ugh

    The one thing I found that worked was spraying rubbing alcohol on my box spring and mattress. I sprayed the baseboard in the room , I used it on my bed frame and dressers too. Yes the room smelled like alcohol for a few days but it was much better then the bites. The best part is it did not damage the furniture.

    I hope this helps and good luck if you hire a company to come in and do it for you … it was a waste of time and money for me.

    well bleach seems to make them bleed or release everything thats in them? over the next few weeks I’ll be conducting a few experiments with the lil buggars… testing them like lab rats to see what works and what doesn’t what annoys them and what can actually kill them… curious about how resilient they really are of course anyone would be, but in order to find a cure they have to be caught and tested…

  21. someone would like to kill all the bed bugs said,

    September 19, 2011 @ 3:03 pm

    i just wondering, anyone of u got any successfully case to kill the bed bugs at ur home? I faced the problem too… i read the article, bed bugs can live more than a yrs without feeding. hence, they can kill with 110 degree… so means if u put ur mattress outside the house to let sunrise kill’s impossible…. And the egg of the bed bugs is black colour…. so i did experiment it thought the black dots at my mattress is some dirty , but slowly you monitor it, they can start moving….. So, definately the normal insect aerosol wont help.

    4 years ago i had bed bugs, it was horrible. I called the exterminator and they were all gone after 5 weeks. i also thew away my bed my couch my cloths and everything else. I taped over cracks in the wall and slept on a air mattress for 3 years. its a real fight filled with many sleepless nites. Finally i went and bought a new 3,200 bedset. I was terrified about them comming back. Against my better judgement i bought a used 40 guitar to learn to play and guess what there back again. The war continues again what ive learned is think positive if you fear them comming like the secret said you will give your thoughts power and they will come. some time hard to do becouse im laying in bed now feeling like im getting bite all over but when i look there is nothing there. good luck to you and your fight people

    question for the experts: many years ago, i read that cornstarch kills bugs, the theory goes, bugs eat the stuff and it expands inside the bug and bam, one sorrry little bug…would this work with bedbugs, i wonder, worth a try, it probably works really well with roaches, i bet psyllium husks would work and it is not as messy, it really expands, anytime you need to thicken soup, etc., add very little and wahlah, you have thick soup, but beware, do not add much

I moved out of the house that had bed bugs and all my belongings have been in the garuge for 10 days and he weather has fluctuated between 10 degrees and 45 degrees. How much longer should I leave my stuff out there? Its not much. Just clothes.

    Hi Guys,

    I have read all the posts..I am experiencing the same problem.
    6 months have gone now since I first found them..not sure where they came from, not sure how they can survive all the treatments that I have had from various pest controller officers who attend my property, but one thing is for sure..THEY AINT GOING WIN!!..I have declared WAR..

    I think it is totally ‘Trial and error’..after hearing from each pest control officer ” that’s it..they will never survive that treatment!!” only to discover they have moved to another room, I am now trying everything and anything myself..
    I have already replaced mattresses, bed frames, bought mattress encasements, renewed carpets, hoovered everyday, washed bedlinen to an inch of its life, done everything possible..and as my bank balance wont allow anything else, I am now trying all the solutions I already have..
    Have used alcohol….killed the little shits right away but not sure about long term??
    Have scrubbed household bleach around the skirting boards using a toothbrush
    Have immeresed certain items in the bath, using very hot water mixed with bleach
    Not really sure what else I can do at this time, but wait..
    This has to be one of the most trying and soul destroying things I have ever come across!! [and jesus I have dealt with a lot] but as i say its a WAR.. and I hope all you soliders, like me, come out on top!!
    [ps. i know if we dont make light or fun of it, we would go insane ..I know I am already half way there!!]

My landlord works as a licensed exterminator. Unfortunately my last landlord was an a hole and got me into the mess I was in.

    I have them in my bedroom, I think they came in an old tv my husband found in an apartment (he is a maintence guy, and always finds things to bring home) anyway, we were told by the bug guy he works with about “Nuvan strips”. you have to order them online, they are about 35.00 for 12 actually 6 are little plastic cases the strips go in, you just place them in the room, and also you can bag up your personal items in plastic bags, and put in a strip into each bag and seal them up. It takes about a week to see the difference, dont go into the room, and close off air vents to the room, the nuvan strips will not damage clothing or personal items, but wash any linens and keep them separated. We bought an air mattress when we realized the bites were bed bugs, I was bitten for several weeks b4 I figured it out, it was horrible, it felt like bugs were burrowing in my skin. I have been sleeping on an air bed for almost 2 months and havent been using the room, Im lucky becuz, ours are only in our bedroom, so I think its getting better now. Im ready to try and put my room back in order and see what happens, this experience has been so terrible, I dont wish it on anyone. But check out the nuvan strips, they do work, I started seeing dead bugs, instead of live ones, after about 2 weeks. good luck guys.

    1. pull out your bed to become an island in your room( like a foot away from wall)
    2. remove bed skirts / bedding / hot wash and dry
    3. In spect mattress / frame and box spring. Spray with alcohol any eggs / bugs
    4. sausage-case evrything in saran ( bulk from Canadian Tire) for 1 year.( no
    less)( a pain, yeah, but its worth it…to be on safe side 1 year..they can live for a year with no blood)
    5. Reassemble bed
    6. Wrap doulble sided tape around bed legs
    7. Place each leg in a paper plate lined with Diatomaceous ( garden centre /
    non toxic…but DO not inhale dust ..they’ll be sliced upon crossing it to access bed leg)
    8. Declutter room / wash all clothes as above / inspect holes / corners / all crevices for black dots ( poo)
    9. The key is to remove their food sorce ( you…can’t access), and dying in process, either thru
    walking thru the powder, getting stuck on the tape/ or starving to death / dehydration…..the main thing is to keep them away from you…you will be bite free…your total costs will be 30 dollars max….you’ll just have to wait out the dying process…but then you’ll be ok
    10. I did all of the above with my main goal being to make it impossible for them to get to me. Some ideas on the web are just plain wearing long sleeve clothing.’s that gonna stop them ? they’ll crawl around and eventually find an exposed crack of skin….just keep ‘em off the bed !!!!!
    also…they can’t chew thru plastic. The have a delicate tube for suckling your blood, and thats it… a mosquito. Try to imagine a mosquito knawing thru 8 layers of saran wrap.
    11. Finally, be vigilant about keeping your island and island…not a curtain touchinh the side of your bed…or a cord touching your mattress form a night stand.
    12. Who wants to pay $1,000 dollars and deal with chemicals ? remember my motto : keep them at bay ! and watch them die on the way !!!!!

  35. chris said,

    May 12, 2012 @ 10:56 pm

    forgot to add in….
    1. for major infestation…steam clean bed stuff first( before encasing)
    2. Just Encase if suspected bed bugs only.( no visual signs of any…but suspect bites on body)

    I discovered bed bugs in my home sometime last month. I had seen one or two before in my room, but didn’t know what it was and thought that is was just a random bug that got in the house. I wasn’t until one week where it seemed like I saw one every day. So I got on the internet and looked it up, and found out it was a bed bug.I immediately washed everything scrubbed down the mattresses and box springs, vacuumed and shampooed the carpets and bought plastic zippered covers for the beds box springs and pillows. Every thing seemed fine until about a week ago, and I saw one in my closet. I have been so freaked out that CAN”T sleep in my room. My skin is constantly crawling and there is nothing there. I’m at the point where I am like F*** it, I’ll pay the exterminator to get my piece of mind back. Good thing is that it only seems to be my room and not in the other two, my kids’ rooms. I used to be afraid of cockroaches, but this bed bug S*** aint no joke! It makes you not want to have company over and not go over to any one’s house. I want to go on vacation, but am afraid that once I get them out of my home, I might bring them right back :’( Hope the best for every one!

    I am dealing with the bed bug crisis right now. I don’t know how I knew but it was just a creepy feeling I had. So, of course I called an exterminator and he confirmed my worst fear. I have thrown away my entire families beds. My landlord refuses to treat our townhouse even though we only moved in 2 months ago & didnt have them before. This is absolutely the worst thing my family has ever been through, I know it sounds over dramatic but It’s so true. I have 3 children and we have abandoned our home until I figure out a resolution. Best of luck to all of you in this nightmare.

    I have had bedbugs for a while and I thought it was mosquitos bites and one day I felt something crawlling on me and I called my son to come here and I showed him what I found there were bedbugs in my bed and thats what was biting me the whole time and I am thinking it was mosquitos, I got a casement for the beds but they got on one of them I spend quite a few dollars on sprays but I think they are immune to them, I cant sleep my son cant sleep I am afraid they are going to bite my dog, and there is nothing he can do I need some help because I dont have any money to hire an exterminator. I am desprered

    I’ve had bedbugs for about 2 months… I finally got easements today and when I picked up my box spring I found hundreds of them in swarms! I found out that ammonia kills them on contact, and with fumes. But they become immune! Idk what else to do. I can’t afford a professional, but I can’t afford to keep fighting! I’m at my limit! Someone please help!

    Yes you can bring them and spread them to other locations. Me and my kids are dealing with them . i stay up at night while i monitor them sleep . i am tired of them everything must go. i don’t want to keep anything. this suckers are really tiny you need good light to see them

    if u want someone who knows what they’re talking about look at chris post on may 12 2012 that is the exact way to the t to at least keep them from eating you. eventually they will die with the diatomaceous powder or get stuck on the tape, but they won’t be biting you. its time we piss them off for a change and make it hard on them. i wish i could come across one in an alley and bite its head off.

    After read every comments try to figure out what i should do, after this few weeks i had psychologically and mentally distracted by the thought of “the bed bug is coming” while i was sleeping and i woke up in the middle of the night just bcz i had a dream about bed bugs, god!!! really make me go crazy. i’m gonna search for rubbing alcohol and water based aerosol for tonight, I wish me and everybody else good luck and rest in peace. These small little bastard just had to go!!
