Detect and Isolate Bed Bugs in Your Room

Bed BugYou can use the best bed sheets such as a bamboo bed sheet and pillowcases. You can wash your entire bed as frequently as you want. You will still have a bed bug infestation, however, if they come in from your dirty laundry, from a trip you had someplace, or from items bought at a thrift shop.

Deal with Infestations Immediately

Bed bugs may be considered as the worst kind of pest since they can grow into the tens of thousands if left unchecked. In fact, one couple lived through a six-year infestation of bed bugs in the UK. Their entire bed became discolored with blood, eggs, and bed bugs.

Isolate the Pests: Seal Gaps

Naturally, you want your bed and your room clean from these pests. To deal with any and all bed bugs that have infested your room, you will need some tools. You can prepare foam sealant or hardware cloth to close any gaps in your room that lead outside.

Using the sealant or cloth, you will need to isolate your room to keep the bed bugs from spreading.

Add Insecticide

Into the cracks and gaps you sealed, you can insert silica gel. You can find silica gel that serves as an insecticide. With the double defense of a sealant and the silica gel, you can keep the bed bugs isolated within the room and even away from parts of the room such as a walk-in closet.

Detect Pests: Place Glue Boards

Now, to detect bed bug presence in your room, you can use glue boards with low glue. Higher glue on glue boards can repel bed bugs, but low-glue glue boards can be discreet. You can place them behind your bed and other areas of your room.

You will know you have bed bugs once you trap one in a glue board.

Once you detect and isolate the bed bugs in your room, you can promptly call an exterminator to deal with the bedbug infestation. You obviously want to sleep in a clean bed without anything sucking your blood out.
