You must first get rid of bed bugs before attempting to prevent them from coming back. While there are a few DIY bug-removal techniques, a professional will be able to give the most effective solution.
Bed bugs are naturally tough. They can survive for seven to twelve months if they establish a home in the cracks and crevices of bed frames, mattresses, and upholstered furniture. It’s also possible that a bed bug infestation is already present before you realize it.
Because bed bugs are nocturnal and only feed at night while you are asleep. It’s why getting Bed Bug Removal and Treatment from Life After Bugs should be your first solution to your bed bug infestation. Prevention will come after.
Preventive Tips After the Treatment
After the treatment, bed bugs should be gone by now. All you need to do is to prevent them from coming back. Here are some tips on how you can stop bed bugs from coming back.
- In the first few weeks, vacuum every day. After cleaning, promptly discard the vacuum bag. The eggs might still be present even if you don’t notice any indications.
- Avoid switching bedrooms. You could be spreading the infestation to additional sections of the house by switching rooms while bed bugs are still present on the furniture.
- Protect your mattress. For your mattress and box spring, you can buy plastic bed encasings. Make sure you buy a cover with a bed bug-resistant zipper. The tiniest bed bugs cannot fit through these carefully constructed zippers because they close so tightly. The idea is to capture the bed bugs and place them under the covering, where they will perish. The material should remain on the mattress for at least a year.
- Have a professional exterminator apply targeted treatments. You have a decent chance of retaining your mattress and upholstered furniture if you conduct regular inspections of your furniture and routine vacuuming.
The secret to preventing bed bugs from coming back is hiring an expert first and then maintaining them next.
