Three Tips for Bed Bug Protection

HomeBlogThree Tips for Bed Bug Protection

Bed bugs are very small and often found in beds and other textiles. They feed on animal and human blood and will come out at night to bite. Their bites are not poisonous, but they can be itchy and sometimes painful, and bed bugs are difficult to find and get rid of on your own.

Three Tips for Bed Bug Protection

If you have a bed bug problem, you can rely on us at Castle Exterminators, but we can also help you prevent a bed bug infestation. Here are three tips for bed bug protection to help prevent an infestation:

  1. Keep things tidy: Bed bugs like to come into a home and hide on textiles. A good method for bed bug protection is keeping your home tidy and reducing the spaces where bed bugs can hide. This also includes vacuuming regularly to effectively eliminate any wandering bed bugs before they become a full infestation.
  2. Invest in mattress protectors: Another key for bed bug protection is a mattress protector. Because bed bugs are so small and flat, they can easily slide through loose mattress sheets. Encasing your mattress in a tight-fitting and effective mattress protector can suffocate any existing bedbugs, prevent them from coming up to bite you at night, and prevent them from hiding in your bed.
  3. Act fast: Bed bug protection can reduce the risk of a bed bug infestation in your home, but it isn’t entirely flawless. If you find bed bugs in your home, it is important to act fast and call the exterminator to eliminate the issue before it escalates. When we come to eliminate the issue, we can also make more recommendations to reduce the risk of bed bugs in your home.
