With the warm weather approaching, many of us are wondering how to get rid of bed bugs. Bed bugs thrive in warm environments, the peak of their infestation capabilities being reached in the summer months. Learn how to get rid of bed bugs yourself and stay prepared!




How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs Yourself


  1. Always Be Prepared. First thing’s first, prepare your home for extermination. No bed bug treatment is complete without preparing for bed bug extermination. Remove all clutter and place in sealed containers or bags, vacuum, and pull furniture away from the walls. Do a thorough bed bug inspection to make sure you know all possible locations of infestation. Make sure you treat any bed bug infested clothing, blankets, or other washable items with our Bed Bug Laundry Treatment.

  2. Bed Bugs Be Gone! Now it’s time to apply your bed bug spray and other bed bug treatment products. We recommend using our 24 Oz. bed bug spray with the 1 Gal. refill to ensure you have enough product for the job. The most important part of knowing how to get rid of bed bugs in a mattress or any other part of your home is knowing the best way to apply your bed bug spray. Always spray directly onto the infested area, and isolate the bed bugs so they have no chance to escape. The BedBug911 bed bug spray eliminates bed bugs on contact, and is 100% effective.

  3. The Best Defense is a Good Offense. Now that you’ve successfully eradicated that bed bug infestation, don’t assume the war is over. Keep your personal items isolated in sealed containers or bags for at least another two weeks - the time it takes bed bug eggs to hatch. During this time, and after the two week incubation period, make sure you keep up with your bed bug inspections, and follow up with preventative treatments. Taking these measures will ensure that you nip a repeat infestation in the bud, before it has a chance to grow and put you back in another bed bug nightmare.


Arming yourself with a BedBug911 bed bug kit will ensure that you will have everything needed to survive a bed bug infestation. Using the products in the bed bug kit as a part of your daily spring cleaning routine is a great preventative measure to stop bed bug infestations before they start. Get yours today!
