Natural Remedies To Kill Bed Bugs :

Vacuum Cleaning:

Vacuum cleaning is one of the most effective ways by which most of the bugs will be removed in a swish. Vacuuming will trap all the bugs into the suction air and therefore the bugs can be removed or destroyed after this procedure. Vacuuming should be done several times and for many days to be effective.It is also important not to use the areas wherever you're doing the vacuum treatment throughout these days. This may help the bugs to starve and die. Avoid using the area for at least a month to make sure that they're destroyed completely.

Talcum Powder:

Another safe and easy way to kill the bed bugs is to sprinkle the powder generously on the area so that the bugs will be suffocated to death. This too would need patience and you might have to do the treatment several times for taking care of all the bugs. At this time, you need to ensure that you avoid sleeping in these areas. Baby powder is the best for killing bugs.


Hot Water Treatment:

Bed bugs cannot thrive in hot weather. Thus, treating all the upholstery and affected areas with hot water is helpful in killing the bed bugs. Clothes that are treated with hot water can be ironed as well in very high temperature for killing the bed bugs. Upholstery and furniture can be left under the hot sun to kill the bugs and discourage them from any further infestation.

Steam Treatment:

Just like heat treatment, steam can also kill bed bugs as they can't tolerate the hot moisture and intense steam. For this, a steam vacuum cleaner will be used. Steaming should be done many times in order to kill all the bed bugs.

Steaming might not be terribly effective if the bed bug infestation is very intense and has gone deeper than half an inch below your mattress. In such cases, you can try a combination treatment like hot and steam treatment and leaving the affected clothes, upholstery, and furniture under the sun as well.

Cold Treatment:

Bed bugs may also be killed by treating them with extreme cold. During this winter season, this becomes a simple task as all the upholstery and furniture may be left outside under the harsh winter climate. Clothes and other smaller things can be left in the deep freezer for killing the bugs.Wash your clothes in very cold water or leave them in water along with ice cubes for killing the bugs.


Boric Acid:

Sprinkling boric acid on areas wherever there's bed bug infestation is another effective way to kill the bed bugs. However, after completion of the treatment, care must be taken to confirm that the boric acid powder is totally cleaned from the areas wherever you reside. It's not recommended to sprinkle boric acid on your upholstery and bed as it will be difficult to get rid of them completely after the treatment.
