DIY Bed Bug Treatments: What to do and what to expect

You read about bed bugs every week in your local newspaper, or see public bed bug cases mentioned on evening news. Every report sounds similar: bed bugs were found here, bed bugs look like this, and here are some tips on how to avoid getting bed bugs. However, they also mention that bed bugs can’t be eliminated with DIY methods, and that you have to call an exterminator. Of course, this is nonsense – you absolutely can kill bed bugs yourself, as long as you know what to expect in a bed bug treatment:

What to do in a DIY bed bug treatment

First, you need to know what steps to take in a bed bug treatment. The most common reason that DIY treatment efforts fail is because steps were skipped, or were not done thoroughly enough. Cutting corners to save time or money only increases the risk that the treatment will fail, which will cost you more time and more money to redo. Do it right the first time and rest easy with these simple steps:

1. Treat and encase your bed

Bed Bug Encasements InstalledThe first step to take is to stop bed bugs from biting you in your bed. To do this, we’ll start by killing bed bugs that are hiding on the mattress, box spring, and bed frame, then apply bed bug proof mattress covers. Strip your bedding from your mattress and seal them in garbage bags to prevent bed bugs from escaping and infesting other parts of your home. Take the bedding directly to your washing machine and wash using the hot water setting. When that’s done, dry the bedding on the high heat setting, if possible. The heat from these laundry cycles will kill bed bugs and eggs hiding in your bedding.

While your bedding is in the laundry, remove your mattress and box spring from your bed frame, and go over them with a vacuum cleaner to collect any bed bugs, shells, fecal droppings, or eggs that might be present along seams and folds. Don’t forget to vacuum the cracks and crevices in your frame, headboard, and footboard. While most regular vacuums would work, you may want to use a HEPA PCO vacuum, since their sealed HEPA filters prevent collected bed bugs from escaping.

After vacuuming your bed, follow up with a steamer. A high-pressure steamer can effectively penetrate deep inside mattresses, box springs, bed frames, headboards, and footboards to kill bed bugs and their eggs on contact. When steaming, move the nozzle very slowly (about one inch per second) to ensure that the hot steam is applied evenly.

Once the bed has been fully vacuumed and steamed, spray the joints of the bed frame, headboard, and footboard with a contact spray and residual spray that are labelled for use on furniture. This will cut down on any bed bugs that you may have missed before, and will set up a protective residue to kill any bed bugs or eggs over the next couple of weeks. Remember to follow the sprays’ product labels and MSDS for safe and effective usage, including wearing any protective clothing that is recommended.

Now that the mattress and box spring are vacuumed, steamed, and completely dry, you can install the sealed bed bug proof mattress encasements and box spring encasements. Encasements are important because they prevent any surviving bed bugs from entering or escaping the mattress and box spring, limiting hiding places and stopping any bed bugs on the mattress from biting you through the cover.

2. Isolate and intercept your bed

ClimbUp InterceptorsNow that you have killed (or trapped) any bed bugs that were hiding in your bed, it’s time to isolate your bed and protect it from any bed bugs hiding elsewhere in your room. Bed bugs could be in your furniture, along baseboards, and inside walls, cracks and crevices – anywhere close enough for them to detect the body heat and carbon dioxide that you emit while sleeping. By blocking these bugs from climbing back onto the bed, we prevent them from being able to bite you, feed on you, and reproduce.

Begin by ensuring that the bed is properly isolated. Make sure that your bed is elevated by a frame with legs or castors; if you don’t use a frame, or your frame sits flat on the ground, you should purchase a temporary bed frame in the meantime.  Only the legs or castors of your bed should be in contact with the floor, so tuck in or remove any hanging covers or bed skirts, and remove any storage below the mattress.

Next, place ClimbUp Interceptors under your bed legs to prevent bed bugs from being able to climb up the legs. To install the interceptors, simply lift each bed leg and place the trap underneath so that the leg rests in the center of the bowl. As bed bugs try to get to you, they will climb up the edge of the interceptor and fall into the perimeter pitfall, where they won’t be able to escape.

3. Vacuum and steam the room

Bed Bug SteamerWe’ve now treated and isolated the bed, and it’s time to start treating the common hiding places in the rest of the room. Bed bugs are likely hiding along the edges of carpet, inside wood cracks, behind picture frames, and inside books, magazines, furniture, and other similar hiding places.

Let’s start by picking up any loose items in the room, like clothes, books, and other personal belongings. Decluttering the area reduces the places that bed bugs can hide, and makes treatment easier. Seal these items in garbage bags and store them outside of the infested room, if possible. Remove clothing in dresser drawers and treat them in a dryer for at least 45 minutes, only filling the dryer halfway to ensure an even heating. Once treated, clothing that you don’t normally wear should be bagged and stored along with your other collected items.

Go over deep cracks and crevices along windowsills, baseboards, floorboards, door frames, and the edges of the carpet with a vacuum, then again with a high pressure steamer. When applying steam, remember to move no faster than about one inch per second to ensure that all bed bugs and eggs are killed on contact. You should also replace the bag or canister in the vacuum cleaner once you’re done using it, to limit exposure of bed bugs to other parts of your home.

4. Spray and powder cracks and crevices

Spraying for Bed BugsBy now, you’ve covered most of the room with various treatment methods. All that is left is to hit the bed bugs that have survived, and set up a long-lasting defense to ensure that the infestation is finished off. For the final step, you are going to use a combination of contact and residual sprays, as well as a residual powder.

First up are the contact sprays, which kill bed bugs quickly and evaporate shortly after. With that in mind, you want to make sure that you hit bed bugs where they’re hiding, so spray along baseboards, below drawers, behind night stands, and on the cushions of upholstered furniture like sofas and chairs. Resist the temptation to spray all over the place, as this likely won’t do you any good since bed bugs don’t tend to hang around in open areas. Instead, focus your spray on tight spaces throughout your room that bed bugs are likely to be hiding in.

Follow up your contact treatment with residual sprays. Residuals won’t kill as quickly as the contact sprays did, but they will be effective for much longer. Spray into cracks and crevices throughout the room, like in the corners of upholstered furniture, along baseboards, and along the edges of the carpet.

Lastly, you want to use a residual powder for places that you couldn’t use sprays. With a professional powder applicator, you can apply powder deep into cracks and crevices, like under appliances, in door frames, and along cracks where the wall meets the floor. You can also puff some powder behind the faceplates of electrical outlets and light switches.

To prevent any surviving bed bugs or eggs from repopulation the area, you’ll want to reapply your contact and residual sprays twice – two weeks after the initial treatment, then two weeks after that, for a total of three applications.

 

If you followed all four steps completely, including the follow-up treatments at the end, you’ll be bed bug free! While you’re going through these steps, there are a couple of things to keep in mind regarding what to expect during the treatment:

Don’t cut corners. By skipping steps or taking shortcuts, you run the risk of the treatment failing to eliminate the infestation. This could end up costing you more time and money to redo the treatment. Be thorough and complete the first time you do the steps, and you’re much less likely to have to redo them later.

Don’t throw away your furniture. Everything that has bed bugs can be treated. Beds and upholstered furniture can be steamed and sprayed, wooden furniture can be treated with the right sprays, and more sensitive items can still be treated in a portable bed bug heater. There is always a way, and it will cost less to treat your furniture than to replace it.

Don’t sleep in another room. With encasements and interceptors in place, your bed should be bed bug free, and bed bugs will not be able to re-enter your bed to feed on you. With this in mind, there is no reason to sleep somewhere else, and that increases the risk of spreading bed bugs to other parts of your home (since they will still be looking for the food source that left the room).

Use active monitors for unoccupied rooms. If you are treating a room that no one is sleeping in (like a recently vacated hotel room or apartment unit), then you need a way to draw bed bugs out of their hiding places so that they come in contact with the sprays and powders that you have applied. You can lure bed bugs out with an active monitor, like a NightWatch or Verifi. These emit small amounts of carbon dioxide along with other luring methods to imitate a sleeping person and draw out hungry bed bugs.

How to Get Rid Of Bed Bugs on Couches and Furniture

Bed bugs got their name by hiding close to where their food source (i.e. you or another unlucky fellow) is sleeping or resting. This means that you’re most likely to find bed bugs on or near your bed or other furniture that you frequently come in contact with, such as a couch or recliner. If you think unwanted guests might be crashing on your sofa, you should begin inspecting and treating the furniture item immediately. Treating furniture for bed bugs involves a combination of chemical and non-chemical solutions, as well as passive traps to help prevent bed bugs from being able to hide in the item again. These are proven, professional-strength treatment methods, and are all part of our 4-step do-it-yourself solution.

Inspecting for Bed Bugs

You can inspect for bed bugs in your couch using a flashlight, a pair of nitrile gloves, a magnifying glass, and a credit card for hard to reach areas.

Signs-of-Bed-Bugs-in-Couch

Signs of bed bug activity can include:

  • Black Spots are signs of bed bug waste. These look like thin black streaks, and can be seen on sheets and upholstered furniture.
  • Molted skins are signs of bed bugs progressing through the five growth stages between hatching and reaching sexual maturity. Finding these will let you know that bed bugs have been successfully feeding and maturing over time.
  • Dried up blood stains can be possible signs of recent feedings and are commonly found on the fabrics of your bed or sofa
  • Bed Bug eggs are milky white and about half the size of a grain of rice. These can usually be found in hidden cracks and crevices where they won’t be disturbed.
  • Bed Bugs themselves are oval and flat, unless they’ve recently fed. When they first hatch, they’re very small and hard to see; as they mature, they grow dark and red, and will get to be about the size of an apple seed.

Begin your inspection by removing the layers of cushioning from your couch, inspecting every item you remove. Since bed bugs are good at squeezing into small spaces, it’s important that you leave no areas unchecked or untreated. Trace every seam, edge, and zipper from end to end using your credit card and flashlight.

There are tons of cracks and crevices under the bottom of your couch; to reach those potential hiding places, you should remove the dust cover, which is mainly there for aesthetics anyway.

Inspection-for-Bed-Bugs-on-Furniture

Vacuum and Steam

If you found any signs of bed bugs, you’ll want to start treating your couch right away.

Begin treating your couch by using a vacuum to pickup as many bed bugs, bed bug feces, and eggs as possible along the cracks and crevices of your sofa.

Vacumming-Bed-Bugs-on-Couch-or-Furniture

Vacuuming for bed bugs is a great way to quickly reduce the bed bug population before steaming and applying your residual chemicals.

While you could use your own vacuum, it’s recommended to use a HEPA filtered PCO vacuum that features plugs and a shake-free bag to prevent bed bugs from escaping the vacuums body.

After you’ve finished vacuuming your sofa, you can move on to the next step in the treatment process which is steaming the cracks and crevices of your couch.

Steaming is the most effective and environmentally friendly way of killing bed bugs and their eggs on contact. All steamers that we carry are capable of producing steam temperatures over 180° Fahrenheit, enough to kill bed bugs and their eggs on contact.

Steaming-Couch-With-Bed-Bugs

bedbug-tip (1)Bed Bug Tip: To take full advantage of pin-point nozzles, take a microfibre cloth and wrap it around the head of the accessory using rubber bands to secure it. Using the cloth breaks up the pressure coming out of the steamer and builds up the temperature at the tip of the accessory.

Be sure to read the steamers user manual for safe usage and follow the recommended cool-off methods, to properly relieve the pressure from the container before opening.

You can steam your sofa by following all cracks and crevices using your steamers pin-point nozzle attachment. You want to treat around the armrest, below the cushions, and along every seam, to ensure you treat as many potential hiding places as possible. If your steamer features a steam adjustment dial, turn the pressure down for flat surfaces and up to penetrate into cracks and folds.

When finished, give your couch a few hours to fully dry before applying your residual chemicals. You can also use a fan in the treated area to circulate the air and speed up the drying process.

Residual Spray

After you steam clean your sofa, it’s important to treat your couch with an effective residual. JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus is a non-staining residual insecticide offering up to 12 weeks of protection against the toughest of bed bugs and their eggs.

JT-Eaton-Bed-Bug-Plus-Spray-On-Couch

Before using Jt Eaton Plus, we recommend wearing a long sleeve shirt and using a pair of chemical resistant gloves to prevent skin contact with the chemicals found inside. Remember that you should always refer to the product’s label and msds for safe and effective usage.

Begin by attaching the included straw applicator and spraying every seam, flap, crack, or crevice found on your sofa. Be sure to apply JT Eaton Plus to the zippers and seams of the cushions as well to ensure no area is left untreated.

ClimbUp Interceptors

After you treat your sofa with a residual, you can prevent bed bugs from reaching you on your couch by using ClimbUp Insect Interceptors. The Interceptors work by using you as a lure to bring out bed bugs from their hiding spaces and towards the Interceptor. Bed bugs climb up the edge of the interceptor and fall into a pitfall trap, which features a thin coat of talcum powder to prevent bed bugs from climbing back out. To install ClimbUp Insect Interceptors on your couch, simply lift up the leg post and place an interceptor underneath. With the ClimbUps in place you can stop bed bugs from being able to reach you, while also monitoring their population over time.

Installing-ClimbUps-on-Couch-with-Bed-Bugs

To increase the chances of attracting bed bugs to your installed monitors, you can convert them to active monitors with the inclusion of SenSci Activ lures. SenSci Activ is a new, easy-to-use bed bug lure that slowly releases an odor that can attract bed bugs for around 2-3 months.

Using-SenSci-Activ-on-furniture

Once these steps have been taken, you can rest assured that your treated furniture is now bed bug free, and that defenses are in place to keep bed bugs out of those cushions for good. You can now use your vacuum, steamer, sprays and traps to begin treating other parts of your home that bed bugs are likely to be hiding in.

SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lure Review

When bed bugs want to find their next meal, they’ll follow the trail of body odor, heat, and carbon dioxide that we emit in our sleep. Bed bugs won’t come out of hiding if these signals are not present; instead, they’ll go into a hibernative state, and can live for up to a year without a blood meal. In the past, passive bed bug monitors and traps (like ClimbUp Insect Interceptors and SenSci Volcano) required a host sleeping in the room to provide those necessary signals. Thanks to the new SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lure, that’s about to change. Now, you can significantly increase your devices effectiveness at attracting and capturing bed bugs by converting your passive monitors and traps into active ones.

SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lure

SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lure

SenSci Activ is a bed bug lure designed for use in combination with your passive bed bug monitor or trapping device. Activ’s goal is to attract bed bugs by slowly releasing an odor that simulates the chemicals found on the surface of our skin, one of the senses bed bugs use when looking for a potential host. The odor is introduced through a small tear on the packet, providing a controlled release that attracts bed bugs for up to 2-3 months.

Safety / Application

SenSci Activ Lure installation

Do not remove the towelette from its packaging or expose more than the instructions permit, as overexposure will lead to a shortened effective window.

Before handling an opened SenSci Activ Lure, you should be wearing a pair of nitrile gloves to avoid skin contact with the chemicals found inside. To ensure safe and effective usage, be sure to read and follow the products label and MSDS before opening the lure.

You can install SenSci Activ by tearing off the designated corner of the packet, exposing a portion of the towelette that’s located inside.

 

Once you have an open lure in your hand, place it inside your monitor (or intercepting) device and strategically put them on paths you believe bed bugs are using to reach you.

SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detector Review

Bed bug monitors and traps are essential tools in a bed bug treatment process. They can detect bed bug activity, monitor the population over time, and can even stop bed bugs from reaching you in your bed. Most monitors are designed for low cost, single use, and easy disposal, which can add up in cost over time. Recently, Jeff White (from BedBug Central) has introduced a new, more modern take on the bed bug monitor, with SenSci’s easy-to-use, discrete, and reusable Volcano.

SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detector

SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detector

SenSci Volcano is a new monitoring device that serves as a cost effective solution for detecting and capturing bed bugs. As a passive bed bug monitor, Volcano works by capturing bed bugs climbing over the device during the host seeking process, using the person sleeping in the room as the main attractant. The monitor can be used for early detection of bed bugs in a low-level situation, or to monitor a population, by simply placing Volcano along common paths bed bugs use to reach their host. Volcano’s sturdy design is built to handle the toughest of bed bug infestations and, unlike single-use devices, can be reused for endless monitoring cycles.

First look

Standing at 3x3x1 inches, Volcano’s low-profile size allows for use in almost any environment. It’s volcano-like design even prevents dust from building up on the walls found inside the trap, reducing the chance of bed bugs escaping.

  • The monitor’s exterior features 4  slanted and textured walls that allow bed bugs to climb up effortlessly once they encounter the monitor.
  • On the inside however, you’ll notice Volcano features a set of smooth, flat-faced walls designed to prevent bed bugs from escaping. 
  • Underneath you will find the detachable, clear, concave window for easy inspection, and lure installation.

 SenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detector setup

 

 

 

 

 

 

Volcano consists of only 2 pieces, making it easy to assemble. The only thing you need to check is the orientation of the monitor’s inspection window. Once installed, you should also be able to read “Made In USA”  from left to right.

Ideal places to use SenSci Volcano:

  • Along baseboards
  • Carpet edges
  • By the legs of beds/furniture
  • In the corners of a room

 SenSci-Placement-Location-1SenSci--Couch-Placement-Location

Inspecting Volcano

To inspect SenSci Volcano for bed bugs, simply pick up the monitor and tilt it enough to look through the clear window found underneath. Give special attention to the walls and corners of the monitor as these are common gathering spots for bed bugs.

If you find bed bugs in your trap, flip the monitor upside down over a sink or bathtub and tap it repetitively to ensure all it’s contents fall out. Inspect Volcano thoroughly before placing it back down for another cycle of monitoring.

If you don’t find bed bugs in your trap, you can place the monitor back down and check on it periodically.

Activ Volcano

SenSci Activ Volcano Monitor

Although SenSci Volcano works as a passive monitor, it can also be converted into an active monitor by equipping it with a synthetic attractant or lure like SenSci Activ Bed Bug Lure. Sensci Activ attracts bed bugs by simulating human sweat, which causes bed bugs to be actively drawn into the volcano where they can be collected and monitored.

To use SenSci Activ with SenSci Volcano, Simply open a SenSci Activ Lure (following the directions found on the label) and place the opened packet on the center of Volcano’s inspection window.

SenSci Activ Lure Volcano SenSci Activ Volcano

With the Activ lure in place, you can go ahead and snap the window back onto Volcano and make sure that the Activ packet is not pinched between the window and the top of Volcano.

Now you have successfully built an “ActivVolcano”,  and can place the discrete monitor along baseboards, and the legs of your bed, to catch bed bugs before they can get to you.

 

Wrap up

Volcano stands as a versatile passive bed bug monitor that can be reused for endless monitoring cycles to control dense bed bug populations, or to detect for early bed bug activity . This alone, can save families and business owners hundreds of dollars in replacing single-use lures. You even have the option of increasing the monitors effectiveness by converting it into an active bed bug monitor, by installing a SenSci Activ bed bug lure. You can include SenSci Volcano in our 4-step solution for getting rid of bed bugs, or use it by itself, to monitor for activity along any paths you believe bed bugs are using to reach you.

 

SenSci Volcano Bed bug detector

SenSci Volcano is an effective bed bug monitor that can be used in any setting thanks to its discreet low-profile design. You can also convert Volcano from a passive monitor to an active bed bug monitor, which can significantly increase the monitors effectiveness at attracting and capturing bed bugs.

Jt Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus (residual) Review

JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus is a relatively new spray on the market harnessing the ability to kill unborn eggs and kill live bed bugs for up to 12 weeks. This has helped JT Eat Plus quickly become one of the most effective and widely used professional strength bed bug insecticide on the market.  Also, given it’s new formulation, there is no known bed bug resistance to Eaton Plus. In the following review we will discuss how and where to use the spray as well as how it works. Let’s have a closer look! 

Kills Bed Bugs Plus residual

Kills bed bug eggs!

Although killing live bed bugs currently occupying a room is an important first step, the unborn eggs laid in hidden cracks and crevices of the room are still going to hatch 6-17 days. Repopulation can be the most difficult battle you might face when going against bed bugs, which is why a good residual spray is important to any bed bug treatment.

 

Jt Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus

The formula in Kills Bed Bugs Plus consists of a water-based blend of synergized pyrethrins, PBO (an organic compound used in insecticides) , and permethrin, to obtain the best results against even the most resistant of bed bugs. Although the chemicals included in Kills Bed Bugs Plus are strong enough to take down the toughest of bed bugs, it is safe for use on hard surfaces and most water-safe fabrics.

 

What makes JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus so unique is the fact that it can actually kills unborn bed bug eggs.  This is something that 99% of all other professional grade bed bug sprays can’t do.  This is due to the active ingredients ability to permeate through the egg’s protective layer, killing the bed bug developing inside. If you’re wondering “what if I miss a few hidden eggs?”, don’t worry. The 12 weeks of residual protection gives bed bugs more than enough time to hatch and come in contact with the chemicals once they look for their first blood meal. 

APPLICATION AND USE

 Applying Kills Bed Bugs Plus

You can apply Kills Bed Bugs Plus to most hard surfaces and water-safe fabrics such as:

  • Baseboards (along edges and behind)
  • Seams and folds of mattresses
  • Moldings
  • Carpet edges
  • Boxsprings or other wooden furnitures.

 Refer to the label for a full list

When treating fabrics, it recommended that you test Kill Bed Bugs Plus on a small surface area before doing a full treatment. This way you will know if the fabric dyes are going to be affected by the chemicals. Also, be sure to spray until the material is damp and allow for it to dry completely before coming in contact with it.

Remember to always read and follow the product’s label, and msds, to ensure safe and effective usage.

Overall JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus is a great value offering one of the most effective spray formulation for beds on the market. Because of this, we use it for one of the residual cocktail sprays in our bed bug kit. As with all the sprays and powders we offer at Bed Bug Supply, Jt Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Plus is labeled and registered with the EPA. If you have any questions we are here 7-days a week to serve you at (866) 238-9868.

 

Jt Eatons Kills Bed Bugs Plus

Kills Bed Bugs Plus is the latest spray by JT Eaton offering up to 12 weeks of residual protection in a convenient aerosol form. It’s non-staining water-based formulation can be applied to hard surfaces and most water-safe fabrics. (always read and follow the products label for safe and effective usage)
