Bed bugs are small parasites that feed on blood of humans or warm-blooded mammals. The average life cycle for these types of pests is usually 6 weeks. These little pests are mostly found in bedrooms of homes, hotels, motels and the like; they are also attracted to heat. These creatures have very flexible bodies and can actually hide in very tiny holes and sides inside and around your beds. Bed bugs would usually wait for its prey to sleep or to remain still in the area were they are and then that’s when they’ll come to feed off from their hosts blood. This feeding done on their part causes small red itchy bumps that might be mistaken as mosquito bites. One thing you should know per se, is the more blood these bugs are able to eat, the darker they can become since their bodies show very much the color of what they eat, in their case that is blood, your blood.

Disinfect Your Space

Just like in dealing with any other pests in your home, it’s important to clean up clutter and dirt from your homes in order to lessen the probability and spaces where the bed bugs can nest and hide. Throw away all unnecessary items in your homes that can be a nesting ground for these creatures. You can also start by washing and laundering clothes, linen, bed sheets, carpets, curtains and even rags in your house. Wash everything that potentially show signs of bed bugs such as exoskeletons, waste or blood stains. After washing these things, practice vacuuming them in order to get rid of bed bug eggs and larvae that can potentially continue and start of another infestation. If you can adjust your vacuum settings, use the highest heat setting for the dryer and expose the material to it for at least 20 minutes in order to surely kill the eggs and larvae that could be left.

Diatomaceous Earth

This earth powder is composed of sharp molecules that has the ability to destroy the innards of bed bugs and other likely pests which kills them instantly. Although, it is more effective if you are to apply a thick layer well enough for the bugs to really have to crawl past through it. In this way, the bed bugs will be able to ingest it to their bodies. We advise yo to use Diatomaceous Earth powder that is organic and shall be in a food grain grade in order for it not be harmful for neither pets nor humans. This substance should be left applied to infested items and areas in the house for about three weeks in order for it to be effective.
