Choose a method to eliminate bed bugs: Home remedies or professional treatment?
If you decide to choose to kill the bugs yourself, you should investigate what are the products and remedies that must be applied to eliminate them: insecticides, mattress covers, etc. However, you should know that bed bugs are easily hidden in furniture and other hiding places because of the small size, so make sure you apply the necessary products wherever they may be.
There are also a series of recommendations that you must follow to prevent the pest from spreading:
Wash all clothes at high temperature
Examine carefully the furniture near the bed in case they could have hidden there, as well as lamps and other elements that can serve as a hiding place. Do not forget to examine the inside of the plugs!
When leaving home, examine your clothes and your accessories to avoid that you can take a bug outside the house and thus start a new infestation in another place
Bed bugs are very resistant pests, and therefore it may be necessary to apply the treatment several times until it takes effect entirely.
