Steps for Eliminating Bed Bugs From Your Home,
Office or Apartment
Step 1: Clean
Remove and wash in hot water any items such as clothing. Do not
transport clothes unless they are in a plastic bag, to avoid dropping
any bed bugs along the way. Once clean,
place in a sealed plastic bag. A great choice are
Ziploc Double Zipper Big Bags, which will protect against bed
bugs (they are also good for protecting luggage from bed bugs when in a
hotel room). Vacuum any bed bugs that you can spot
and then dispose of the vacuum bag in a sealed plastic bag.
Use a safe bed bug spray such as Dermisil.
Be sure to spray in cracks and along seams in mattresses. After
mattress dries, buy a zippered casing to trap any remaining bugs
(available from the same company). Also spray around the
edges of the room. As an added level of protection, you can
use a hand steamer around the seams and cracks to super heat and kill
bed bugs and any bed bug eggs you find.
Be sure to treat both the mattress and the box spring. Be
sure to inspect under any mattress levels and inside the box spring
