What Works on Bed Bugs?
Ive sprayed 5 times. Ive used borax, salt, garlic, thyme, cayenne pepper, vinegar and still have these stupid bugs. were going to try to turn the heater on next. We do not have the money to call an exterminator. Hopefully heat will work.
Killing Bed Bugs at Home - Suggestion from Our Editor
It is very hard to kill bed bugs using home methods. Simple approaches are to use a vacuum for any visible insects (dispose of vacuum bag outside of the home.)
In terms of heat, try using a hair dryer. Using a hair dryer to kill bed bugs is a method that involves using the heat from the hair dryer to kill the bugs. This method can be effective, but it is important to note that it may not completely eliminate all of the bed bugs in an infestation. It is also important to use the hair dryer on high heat and to focus on areas where bed bugs are known to hide, such as seams of mattresses and box springs. Additionally, it is important to use a vacuum cleaner to remove any dead or dying bed bugs after using the hair dryer. It is important to note that this method should be used in conjunction with other methods, such as pesticides and proper sanitation, in order to effectively eliminate a bed bug infestation.
In addition to the above, consider purchasing a bed bug kit
. Kits contain the instructions and multiple products needed to eliminate a bed bug infestation.
If the infestation is large and in the walls, then the only method that would work is a professional exterminator. Do not use foggers or bed bug bombs as these just push bed bugs into the walls.
