Use baking soda to kill bed bug from your entire home!
Bed bugs are one of the most troublesome things to find in your home. Once you find one, you know there has to be more, and the longer you leave them, the more chance they have of multiplying. One female bed bug can lay three thousand eggs in their lifetime, and one egg can last for a year. That's why it's so important to clean and treat your home for bed bugs so that you kill them all, leaving no trace of them behind. Once you've identified the bug you've found as being a bed bug, you should learn how to get rid of bed bugs and begin the cleaning process. If you're not sure if the bug you've found is a bed bug, take a photo of it in good lighting and then look up photos of bed bugs online and see if it looks similar. They are small, but they are not minuscule like dust mites, they are about the size of a sesame seed or a bit bigger. There are plenty of chemical cleaning solutions out there that can tackle your bed bug issue, but if you're sensitive to chemicals or would rather keep things natural, there are some natural cleaning tips you can try out to get rid of bed bugs. One of the most effective natural cleaners for getting rid of bed bugs is going to be baking soda.
Baking soda kills bed bugs by dehydrating them and drying them up from the inside out. When you've discovered the bugs in one room but not any other areas of your home, close off that room while you're cleaning it. Take all of the items in your room and put them in plastic bags and seal them really well and take them out of the room. If it's really cold outside, you can put them outside, and the bed bugs will die off from the cold. Or you can also clean your items in hot water in your laundry machine. Once you have a bare room, sprinkle a light layer of baking soda all over your room. Make sure you concentrate it on the areas you think the bed bugs are and make sure you cover the baseboards too as they can hide inside of the small spaces there. You will have to keep the baking soda in your room like this for an entire week though, so if they are in your bedroom, you might want to find somewhere else to sleep for the time being.
Once the week is up, take your vacuum cleaner and vacuum up all of the baking soda all over your room and be sure to empty the bag or compartment when you're finished and get it out of the house immediately. You will need to do this more than one time usually, especially if your bed bug problem is out of control. Just keep doing it until you find no more bed bugs, and if you have a very serious bed bug infestation, you might be better off calling an exterminator. Another good thing to do in your home is to clean up any clutter in your home, especially in the area with the bed bugs. The are more likely to find hiding places in a cluttered environment. To prevent bed bugs in the first place, you should always check your bags and clothes when you return from a trip where you've stayed in a hotel, or just wash your clothing right away.
