Non-chemical bedbug removal options
Getting a bed bug infestation under control takes time and patience. There are a variety of non-chemical approaches that have been shown to be effective.
Here are a few to consider if you have an infestation of bed bugs:
- Toss bedding and clothes into the dryer at the highest temperature setting for best pest control results. Just washing these items generally won’t kill bed bugs.
- Heat infested articles and/or areas to at least 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees C) for one hour.
- Cold treatments – below 0 degrees F (-19 C) for at least four days. Home freezers usually aren’t cold enough to reliably kill bed bugs.
- Encase the mattress, box spring, and pillow in dust or allergen preventing covers to both trap bed bugs and help detect infestations.
