How To Prevent Bed Bugs

What Keeps Bed Bugs Away?

Bed bugs are a pestilence, and are here to stay, for the short term anyway. Your best method of prevention is education. Be aware of your surroundings, understand what bed bugs look like, and the signs of bed bugs.

TREAT BED BUG INFESTED ITEMS

KILL BED BUGS WITH HEAT


Heat is the only effective method to kill bed bugs. Period, end of story. You can also kill bed bugs with cold, but is not as effective as heat. Since bed bugs are so incredibly resilient to cold, you need -18 degrees Celsius for sustained periods of time, to kill them. Any items that cannot be heated or thrown into a dryer will need to be inspected. You must ensure there are no tiny spaces that allow bed bugs to hide. In the worst-case scenario, the item may have to be disposed.
PUT YOUR CLOTHES IN THE DRYER


The best way to kill bed bugs in your books, or clothes and other items, is to place them in the dryer. For books and other delicate items, you can purchase a shelf for your dryer, and fan open the book while placing it on the dryer shelf. Leave the book in the dryer for an hour, on high heat. This is by far the best way to kill bed bugs yourself. Treating furniture for bed bugs will require a Bed Bug Heat Treatment
DON’T BRING BED BUGS HOME AFTER TRAVELLING


Every time you return home from travelling, put your clothes, and luggage in a dryer for at least an hour. If your luggage is too big for the dryer, maybe you can invest in soft luggage, or while you are travelling, keep your luggage in the hotel’s bathtub.
