The truth behind bed bugs control

The truth behind bed bugs control – It doesn’t matter how disciplined you are in housekeeping or how regular you maintain those beautiful furniture and upholstery, because bed bugs can keep invading your home due to:

  1. Cross infestation nature, by passing on or hitching on these bugs from human or object interaction
  2. Gaining entry at any possible small spaces since they are as tiny as an apple seed
  3. Bringing in a “bed bug carrier” such as 2nd hand items
  4. Negligence in spotting them, unless you take special notice especially at night

Popular DIY ways to control bed bugs

  • Using scent repellant methods such as vinegar, baking soda, cinnamon, garlic or cayenne pepper
  • Placing multiple repellent sachets around the home
  • Diligent cleaning of the home by sweeping, mopping the floor and wiping surfaces
