If you are watching this video you have bed
bugs. This is an instructional video on how to get
rid of them without using any pesticides, any special methods really.
…uhhh…this is very dirt simple method. The only drawback to it is that it does require
a lot of time. As you know bed bugs mainly attack at night,
but this method..uh, it’ll return the crazy that they brought on to you.
So stay tuned and we’ll walk you through this. Alright, so you’re going to need three things
if you are going to work toward the long term solution of getting rid of bed bugs.
First of all the most important is an all purpose plastic cover.
Second of all a plastic bag. This is so you can collect them and keep track
of them. and of course.
Lastly, lost and lost of time cause this isn’t an easy procedure overnight.
We’re literally going to kill them off slowly but surely Now the first step, and by far the most vital
is having..is covering the area with the plastic tarp.
Now as you can see it is very important that the edges to be facing up.
This is because the bed bugs themselves can’t get enough grip.
Euh…you will find that they will be very creative in getting to you.
From what I have witnessed: they will climb the ceiling; climb the walls – jump off and
land on top of you. So you really , there is very little you can
do to keep them out, but the secret here is keeping them in.
Cause once they’ve..uh.. filled their sack full of blood its really hard for them to..clam..
climb out Since its really hard for them to climb out
they can’t go back,hide, and procreate therefore you really eliminate their food source.
Now, I would really recommend that you use two layers to achieve the very same results
this is ..in the same train of though of adding additional wall.
so it keeps littles one out, but the big ones have a lot more strength to them and they
will muster though anything to get to you. So…yeah ,just designate you sleeping area
cut out a sheet long enough that you will fit comfortable and yeah just sleep on it
now I’m explaining a little bit of the method behind the madness.
as you can see here I have two blue lines umm..this is representing the two ideal sheets
that you want to use. Now If you are limited one will work but two is really ideal for
the method here um.. so how this really works is that we have
here a bed bug trying to enter and ofcouse its going to be a huge obstacle for them to
overcome the first one since its really hard for them to get grip on the plastic
the slicker the plastic the better because it’ll make really hard for them to come up
so if they do get through the first layer I did find that they either got stuck in the
first layer and couldn’t make it in the second or just went under the first layer thinking
I was there now IF they do mange to get in there the do
engorge themselves with bloods as you can see here
but as they try to make the climb its rather impossible for them
and I often woke up many days finding a lot engorged ones with blood.
Now my you. you will have to over come the fear bed buys
remember that while you’re sleeping they are crawling all over you
you need to overcome the fear that they’re touching you, because they already have you
just haven’t been aware for it. but really something to watch out for if you’re
going to use this method even though its easy it does have its share
of trials like i said earlier its really effect for
you to keep a bag as you can see here I still have a remnant
of my victory but if you find bed bugs in the morning especially
the ones engorged with blood I suggest that you don’t kill them but rather
collect them and contain them. and see how many you can collect because really
that would give you a nice time frame of how long they’re alive
because right now what were doing is cutting off the food supply.
and bed bugs have been know to live a very long time just on water
and they can get water from their environment rather easily
when you find them in the morning collect them
and if you have enough you can start killing them off
but really it gives you a good idea of how long they can live without having a good feed
and I have seen go through at least one or two
generations so in these bags you collect
you will see them procreate and hatch
and lay eggs hatch
and yeah it gives you a really good time frame of when its safe to stop using the plastic
but really you have use the plastic every single night
just like any hungry animal they will become aggressive
and by this I mean that..uh.. that once you escape the comfort of you lily
pad cause I am going to call it
this is the lily pad method if I use two layers and they do become really aggressive and by
that I means that they will attack you during the day
so you are sitting in your desk minding your own business and if you do feel the sting
of the bed bug cause a lot of people don’t feel the sting
for me the string was by far the hardest part I didn’t have an allergic reaction by meaning
I didn’t see any bite marks and welts and swells anything really
but what woke me up at night was those stings I couldn’t, I couldn’t sleep through those
sting so when I would be sitting in my desk I would
feel the bites I would give it quick search I would find uh..really really flat ones
and by fla.. and that means that A. they had eaten in a very very long time and they were
really aggressive for the next meal also you will find that they be really eager
to escape the situation and by that you really have to look for..through your bags your clothing
your shoes any thing you take with you because they will latch on just trying to
get the hell out of here because its not really and environment that
they could ,they could excel in because your no longer giving that option
theres no longer an easy meal like I said
this method is very effective in terms that you don’t really need anything but plastic
but the inefficiency is in the time it is not a over night process
that why I said you should really keep them in captivity because this will give you nice
time frame as to how long you have sleep with the plastic
i would also highly recommend that you sleep in the floor
if you already have sacrificed you bed then you really have no other option
but the fact the floor give you a stability so the plastic stay in one position
I found that if you sleep on the mattress with plastic you peel if off it will roll
off it really defeats the purpose of having the
plastic in the first place now as for sleeping on the floor you’re going
to need really just a rug something that will dampen the floor
cause sleeping on bare floor is a bit uncomfortable but manageable
yeah over all its just trying to.. the main goal of this is so every one
to get a good nights rest I really just hope to spread the word along
uh..because really I don’t want any one else experience this
This was by far the hardest year of my life and I would only wish it on my…. I really
wouldn’t wish it on anybody really its just a pest
and i cant believe solution was so simple when we tried absolutely everything else
and recently we had Orkin come in with one of their dogs to check if there was anything
left and the dog couldn’t even find anything so
I was really amazed at how simple this was and how effective this was
so yeah spread the word and
we could easily get rid of this pest once and for all
and I would also recommend you keep the plastic in case you have a relapse
