Anyone or any home can be infested with bed bugs. A small opening and traces of food in your home can attract bed bugs. A musky odor, skin bites, and rusty spots on your mattress are all indicators that you have bed bugs. A YouTube video titled “How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs | DIY Pest Control | The Home Depot” on the “The Home Depot” channel walks you through the process of bed bug extermination.
To quickly confirm the presence of bed bugs when you don’t have time to call for a bed bugs treatment, use bed bug traps that can easily capture a large number of them within an hour. Additionally, you can determine the extent of the bed bug infestation by placing traps in various areas of your room.
Before laying the traps, ensure that all other rooms with infestations have been cleared of clutter. All items should be washed and placed in a sealable plastic bag. Also, put everything in plastic bags or buckets, as they can hide in cartons and boards.
Remove all bedding and clean it with bed bug-specific detergents. Ensure that the bedding load is dried at the highest temperature. Additionally, vacuum the room thoroughly.
