How to Check For Bed Bugs
There are many reasons to inspect your bed for bed bugs such as suspecting that you are getting bitten while on the bed or when on the prowl for a used sofa. Whatever the case, beds offer plenty of hiding spots for bed bugs so you need to be thorough and patient to make sure you don’t miss any of the signs of bed bugs.
For this inspection you will need;
- Rubber gloves
- Magnifying glass
- Credit card
It helps if the room or area is well lit. Bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and eggs about 2.5 millimetres so they are easy to miss.
Use the flashlight to slowly look over the exterior of the bed watching out for signs of bed bugs. Look for blood stains, tiny black or reddish specks (bed bug feces), bed bug eggs which are milky white and approximately half the size of a grain of rice and bed bug exoskeletons.
Next, take out the cushions one by one and inspect thoroughly before moving to the next one. Use the credit card to swipe seams, edges, zipper and other crevices as you go along and check the contents with the magnifying glass. You should be able to tell whether what you are looking at is ordinary debris or indications of bed bugs.
Flip the mattress and look for any gaps, holes or crevices that may allow bed bugs to penetrate. Remove the bottom dust cover and inspect underneath the mattress carefully.
If you suspect you may have found bed bug feces, wet a paper towel and lightly dab the spot. You should see a red ring forming on the paper towel since the feces is essentially partially digested blood.
How to Remove Bed Bugs from Your Bed
Once you have found signs of bed bugs, it is time to treat the bed. Begin by vacuuming the sofa thoroughly to pick up bed bug, eggs, feces and moult. Pay special attention to the crevices and cracks. This step is important to reduce the number of bed bugs before taking the next step.
Next, steam the bed thoroughly again paying special attention to cracks and crevices. Bed bugs die in high heat, from about 118 degrees Fahrenheit sustained for about 20 minutes. Dial up your steamer as high as it will go while still safe to use on the bed fabric.
You may need to repeat this process top to bottom at least twice more in the coming weeks if you are unsure that you have gotten all the bed bugs.
Apply residual spray specifically designed for use on beds and upholstery. Remember you will be spending a lot of time on your bed to make sure that the chemical you use isn’t toxic. Follow the instructions carefully and be sure to spray seams, cracks, flaps and crevices.
Finally, consider installing bed bug detectors or interceptors on your bed legs and frame. Although these might not help to eliminate bed bugs if any are still left, they are useful for telling how successful your elimination campaign has been. Check the interceptors regularly for any new signs of bed bug activity.
Hire an Exterminator to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
Unfortunately, there is a high chance that you have a bigger bed bug infestation than just your bed if the problem is in your home. You may need to inspect the bed, computer chairs and other furniture close to where you spend a lot of your time. The chances you will find all harborages if you have a full-blown infestation is minimal.
Only an exterminator in Ontario can guarantee that the bed bugs are removed permanently. The expert will also figure out how the pests are getting in and how to prevent them in the future. Bed bugs are resistant to over-the-counter pesticides so attempting to spray them may only disturb the harborages and spread the bed bugs all over the house.
