  1. How do you forget to mention Rubbing Alcohol?  Spraying bed bugs with rubbing alcohol actually suffocates the bugs.  It is one of the cheapest methods for stopping the spread.  Follow this step with laundering everything and replacing the infected bed or furniture, in my opinion (don't know who would want to keep furniture that was infected), is the simplest form of treatment.  Good points on the video also.

  2. It's important that everyone knows how serious a situation these Bed Bugs can be if not treated immediately after getting them! Once it becomes an infestation you're looking at spending hundreds to thousands of dollars for a pest control company to treat your home or business and it could take 3 or more treatments pending how bad the infestation is so take note and listen to the tips given in this video they could really help

  3. I have been using hot boiling water on mattress and box spring . in the past 15 days have done this 3 times and seems to have eliminated them . am not seeing big ones anymore . Last night they hit about 2 am they seem to only come out after 1 am and continue till 5 am. Have been boiling water and pouring it on mattress and boxspring Allowing the hot water to seep on to carpet to kill any in carpet . Everyday I take my sheets put them in a bucket or traveling cooler . Pour boiling water on to sheets and blankets. Allow them to sit in hot water for about 2 hours . The bucket or cooler is small enough to keep the heat and steam from hot water from cooling down so fast . Have found just using bucket after an hour the steam is still present which will kill the eggs . Could tell from last night's invasion that eggs had just hatched. I have a Hoover carpet cleaning machine with upholstery attachment but a shop vac would work just as well . Just to remove water from bed and on floor . I use fans to dry out mattress as well with the sun . Also cook the pillows in boiling water . These bites are getting better and not so many . I have also been using heating pad under my pillows ..Helps kill them and keep them of my neck. The bites itch all the time . The box spring , have removed all fabric down to just wooden from. They hide in the knott's of the wood and have used caulking , wood filler , to seal up all wooden knotts . Today even used PVC glue to fill in wood knott's

  4. coolfactshow .. yes the bed bugs are gone … have set up traps several days ago have nothing in traps .. am going on about 15 days now with no bug bites or sittings … the boiling hot water trick worked real well but had to redo 3 times .. they get in the wood of the box spring and the Knott's of the wood … hope this trick works for someone else ..

  5. Ok theres signs of my building being infested and my landlord is making me move. How do I keep from moving the bugs? Tempted to walk out actually

  6. Never say ''cool'' in the same sentence as bed bugs. Those things are basically the worst thing ever. The itches last for weeks. Not getting bit over and over. One. Itch. One itch stays for a couple of weeks and itches madly.
    I basically have PTSD after having those. I can't stay in cheap hotels anymore. But after washing and drying everything twice, I packed stuff in plastic trash bags, and when I moved, I was lucky to have a situation that I could keep all my stuff in storage for over a year. But they are truly the worst bug I've ever dealt with.

  7. 91% rubbing alcohol works, just be sure to open the windows, then pretty much soak the furniture with a spray bottle, paying good attention to cracks and crevices. Remember it is flammable.

  8. I'm an exterminator and trust me if you get bed bugs you best bet is to get professional help 9 outta 10 times you ain't gonna get rid of them on your own……

  9. A new study from Penn Medicine researchers in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics demonstrated that bed bugs, like the triatomines, can transmit Trypanosoma cruzi, the parasite that causes Chagas disease, one of the most prevalent and deadly diseases in the Americas.Nov 17, 2014

  10. these things cause me to itch so bad I have been scratching my skin off. I am at the end of my battle with bed bugs. they win. I'm going to do what a samurai would do and commit seppuku.

  11. DE food grade is exactly what you want to use, do not use the pool type it is harmful to humans and pets inside of the home. You guys said not to use food type that is incorrect sir. You can also wrap your mattress in industrial plastic sheeting just make sure you use a good industrial duct tape. Lastly is, most extermination companies only offer a 90 day warranty on their work so you could be re infested if you do not take precautions on your own after treatment which DE is a good start. I forgot to mention a good household dry steam cleaner can be very effective at killing these little pests.

  12. TRUST me people! Get:
    91% Alcohol – (prevention and kills on contact)
    Diatomaceous earth -food grade (to suffocate them)
    Temprid SC ( only pesticide that kills bed bugs)
    Dry all your clothing
    trust me we did it and saved ourselves freaking $1450 cause those pest control people wont do a thorough job

  13. Cimexa …. NOT D-EARTH…Cimexa …. NOT D-EARTH…Cimexa …. NOT D-EARTH…Cimexa …. NOT D-EARTH…Cimexa …. NOT D-EARTH…

  14. Question: I have two bagged vacuum cleaners. If I spread a bit of Cimexa or DE into each one and then vacuum, won't the bed bugs die from what's inside the bag? Vacuum cleaner bags are not as inexpensive as they used to be.

  15. I live in social housing and I've found that Diatomaceous Earth works really well.. it takes about 2 Months but it has drastically cut down the bed bugs.. I'm no longer bitten anymore and I can't find any on my mattress or furniture.. a lot of bedbug treatment businesses will try and convince you not to use DE (Food Grade) but that's all part of their business.. What I did was used a large washed and dried coke bottle and I screwed 4 holes in the lid with a screw and screw driver, filled the bottle with DE using a funnel and pumped the powder all around my house I no longer have Cockroaches and all my Bed Bugs are dead.

  16. Public Health and Housing Help Centres and Municipal government DO NOT promote the use of PROFESSIONAL HEAT TREATMENT. Most brochures put out still fall back on pesticides and laundry. Time to more forward IMO.

  17. these guys are full of..¿¡!/…. diatomaceous earth.. does work.. an will not efect your heath because it is All NATURAL. .. vacuum often an use it an they will all be gone… thank you. .. for reading my post. .

  18. if diatomaceous earth is unsafe for your health then why do they use it on deworming cows and you can use it in your home and they say it's safe around pets and humans… iv been using it for years now… an I have even fed it to my dogs an cats to deworm him.. an they are all alive an well worm an flee free… so stop the lyes about it…

  19. Bed bugs ARE a public hazard to me. They are so gross and it's 1:38 am and I don't want to sleep in the bathroom or hallway which is possibly the only place that's bed bug free. Ugh if only my parents listened to me when we first got the furniture which already had it. 😒 Parents…

  20. This spray on Amazon killed my bed bugs!
