How To Prevent Bed Bugs
Videojug video describes ways in which bedbugs make their way into your house and tips how to avoid them. Also demonstrates new utilities now available in the market to get rid of bedbugs. This video pinpoints the harbourage in houses where bedbugs love to hide so that you can physically remove them.
I'm going to tell you how to prevent bedbugs. Now, we get asked all the time, 'Where these bedbugs come from?' , 'how do we get them?', and more often than not, it's usually when people slide somewhere that's already infested, might be a hotel or might be someone's house that you're visiting.
It's a good idea not to leave your bag, by the bed, under the bed, on the bed, the best thing to do is to tuck it up, and it's far away from the bed as you can get it.
Now that's the first step you can try to prevent picking up bedbugs when you travel.
So what else can you do to prevent bedbugs?
What we have got here is a protective bed-cover. These are designed with bedbugs in mind.
And what they do? They fit very snug over the mattress and you zip in. What it does is, it basically creates a seamless cover. So it does in a way hold the folds in the mattress â€“ the little button holes, the handles, and also if there are any bedbugs on the mattress at the point that you fit the cover, it will also lock them in and the zip on this particular one, is patented to prevent bedbugs escape it through the cover.
So they are very useful.
These are passive monitors and what we mean by that is, what you've got, is you've got these little corbelled inserts and these are very attractive to bedbugs as a harbourage. So what you do you take these and you fit them between the mattress and the slats.
That is very attractive to bedbugs. I would suggest if you are going to use something like these, use it up head into the bed another top one that has come to the market is this one. This is a little plug-in monitor and what you've got, you basically got a little heating element so this simulates the body heat we are talking about.
And what you've got, you got this little tray, and this inner kind of moat is sticky. So any bedbugs that tend to walk up here and drop into the moat will stick, and what you do, you plug that in and you leave that in a room where you suspect that you got bedbugs and it's just a good way of monitoring, but also again offering an element of control.
Vacuuming will help.
Again you can physically remove them with a vacuum, but again make sure as soon as you finish vacuuming, take the bag up, double bag it and put it straight outside in your rubbish. Don't leave it in your house, because you might infect other rooms. When you strip bed and laundering the shapes and doorways etc.
make sure you bag it up before you leave the room. Don't just carry it down the stairs, because if there are any bedbugs in there, they could drop off and affect other rooms within the house.
So that's a few things that you can do if you got a bedbug problem but don't just focus on the bed because with bedbugs, or that which is called a bedbug, you would be, probably more appropriate to call it a bedroom bug, because they can live anywhere within the room, skirtings, around bedside furniture, down the back stair, around window frames, if you got pictures hanging on the wall, electrical sockets, anywhere is potentially a harbourage to bedbugs.
And that's how to prevent bedbugs. .
