Can You Stop Bed Bugs By Throwing Your Bed Out?

When you go to the internet for answers, you may hear that bed bugs live inside your bed, and that you can get rid of them by throwing your bed out. This is likely to be a costly error. Here's why.

  • Bed bugs can live in the gaps and cracks of your home.

  • Bed bugs can live in other furniture.

  • Bed bugs can live in alarm clocks, computers, and other electronics.

  • Bed bugs can still be in the luggage item they used to hitchhike into your home.

How You May Stop Bed Bugs That Are In An Item

When you come home from a trip, do a detailed inspection of your luggage and other carriable items. If you find warning signs, such as black bed bug feces, shed skins, white eggs, or bed bugs crawling around, leave the items outside and have them treated. You can also apply this prevention tip when purchasing used furniture and electronics.

Do Essential Oils Work?

When you go to the internet, you may find people singing the praises of essential oils. They tell you that these natural substances, which are derived from plants, will work to drive bed bugs out of your home. Before you get too excited, there are a few things you should know:

  • Bed bugs don't live outside. If you apply something inside your home, bed bugs will just put up with it.

  • Bed bugs need a blood meal in order to reproduce. At some point, the bed bugs in your home are going to find a way past your essential oil treatments.

  • Essential oils don't last long. You'll have to apply treatments over and over again in order to have any control at all.

  • Essential oils are chemicals. Even though they are derived from plants, they may still make you sick when applied improperly.

How Essential Oils May Work?

While you can't arrest an infestation with lavender, peppermint, and other natural scents, you could prevent one. We recommend applying essential oils to your luggage when you go on vacation. This prevents bed bugs from getting inside.

Do Sprays Work?

When you go to the internet, you may learn that sprays can get control of bed bugs. There are many sprays suggested. Some people swear by vinegar and water or other sprays composed of household items. Some people convince you to purchase chemical products. Before you spend a bunch of money on spray products, you should know a few things.

  • Homemade concoctions, such as vinegar and water, dry up and become inert long before they have any impact on bed bugs. You have to actually spray the bed bugs themselves to kill them with these sprays.

  • Sprays are topical. They don't get into the cracks, crevices, voids, and compressed spaces where bed bugs hide.

  • Chemical products can be effective because they have a residual impact. Unfortunately, there are many chemicals that can make you sick.

  • Bed bugs have a natural immunity to certain chemical pest control products. They're born with this immunity. They can also develop even greater immunity when exposed to chemical products.
