Not to worry! We have got the perfect solution to kiss all those nasty bed bugs bye bye forever; and using natural methods. 


Natural Ways of Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs


There are loads of ways, but home remedies seem the best and do come in handy; completely eliminating the pest.


Washing All Infected Fabrics


The first thing you need do is wash any item of clothing that has come in contact with the infected linen, shirts, bed sheets, etc. They should be washed with hot water. Bed bugs don’t have tolerance for very hot water and the easiest way to kill them is to use extremely hot water to do your washing.


Using Vacuum Cleaners


Vacuum cleaners are really handy in getting rid of these pests. After washing the items and clothing, use a vacuum cleaner to suck them out of their hiding places since bed bugs like hiding under cracks and in corners. Try and vacuum the bugs from your computers, tables, wardrobes, cots, mattresses, etc. 


Wiping Down All Areas


The moment you are through with vacuuming, wipe down everything and clean properly. Cleaning happens to be the only way to be really sure that the room is rid of bed bugs. Disinfectants like Lysol may be used as well, or any better product that is available on the market, to remove every last bit of the annoying bugs.


Using Hot Steam


Let’s make something clear here. Using hot water alone for ridding bed bugs won’t solve the problem totally, as the hot water might not kill all the eggs laid inside the mattress. This gives life to new bed bugs when left unattended and the circle starts all over again.


In order to get rid of the last trace of infection, the solution would be to subject the mattresses to very hot steam. The eggs cannot survive hot steam which takes care of the problem once and for all.


Encase Your Mattress And Pillows


After you have cleaned, hot water washed and steam washed your mattresses, you may take help of encasement as a last option. When mattresses are properly encased, bed bugs will have a hard time finding an escape route to go feed on you. You could encase pillows as well to prevent bites on your face and neck areas.


Using Tea Tree Oil


Tea tree oils have a strong and pungent smell that helps keep the bed bugs away from your bed. So, spraying the oil all around your bed and any other infected areas helps prevent the bed bugs from attacking you while you are in deep sleep.


Using Lavender Oil


Lavender oils are natural and very effective bed bug repellents. The smell and taste of the herb drives away the bug in no time. For effectiveness, dried lavender should be sewn between two cloth pieces around the bed perimeter. Lavender oil can also be found in your local health food stores. Because it’s in a concentrated liquid form, the fragrance can last for weeks; so to prevent bed bug invasion and bites, rub lavender oils around your bedpost and floor. This gets rid of them fast.


Sprinkling Diatomaceous Earth


Sprinkling diatomaceous around your bed is also very effective against bed bugs.  The main component is the soil which is made up of tiny fossils of algae. The jagged edges of this soil cut the bugs and they succumb to death due to excessive bleeding. Therefore, you can sprinkle the diatomaceous earth around your bed and protect yourself from its attack.


Well, you can finally wave bye bye to bed bug invasions with all the natural remedies we have showcased above. No matter the nature of the invasion, implementing the above steps will surely rid you of any kind of bed bug.
