Do you feel uncomfortable sleeping at night because of insect bites? There is a chance that you have bed bugs in your mattress, some people tend to confuse them with mosquito bites. Bed bugs are small but visible wingless insects that suck human blood, they come out at night to feed on blood and hide in the morning which makes them difficult to spot. Having bed bugs in your mattress can cause a huge problem because they cause itching and discomfort that can distract you from having a good night’s sleep.
Here are steps to eliminate bed bugs in your mattress.
Step 1: Laundry all your beddings
Remove your sheets, pillows, duvet, comforter, and all the covers of your bed that the bed bugs can possibly hide. Carry them in a plastic bag and tie them with a knot on top to prevent contamination and wash the following in hot water and dry it on a hot setting to permanently kill all the bed bugs.
Step 2: Vacuum your mattress thoroughly
Vacuum your mattress carefully and meticulously with the hose attachment. Thoroughly vacuum all surfaces especially the seams, crevices, and intendations, because bed bugs tend to hide in these areas. Once you are done with vacuuming, always remove and discard the vacuum bag to avoid any bed bugs from climbing out.
Step 3: Use Encasement on bed
To prevent the bed bugs from coming back to your bed, put a bed bug proof encasement on your mattress. The encasement traps the bed bugs and cuts off their food supply. So even if they continue to live on your mattress, they will die because of hunger inside your encasement.
Step 4: Isolate the bed with Interceptor cups
Interceptor cups are used beneath the feet of your bed, holding the bed away from the floor. This prevents bed bugs from climbing up and down from the bed. Make sure that nothing on your bed touches the floor other than the feet in the interceptor cups. As much as possible, avoid using bed sheets and comforters that reach the floor to prevent the risk of having bed bugs on your bed.
