Pesky bed bugs are a summer nightmare that can be tough to control if they are not quickly and properly dealt with. Taking care to thoroughly clean your carpets and bedding is the first step in the right direction to squelching summer beg bug infestations. Here are 3 ways to control bed bugs when the summer heat is on in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Apply Heat

Bed bugs are common pests that are active year-round; however, the beg bug population tends to surge during the heat of summer. Frequently washing and drying your bedding in hot temperatures for a minimum of 30-minutes helps to reduce bed bug populations as does frequently washing any clothing that has been on the carpet.

A steam cleaner filled with hot water is also great for deeper cleaning of hard to see or reach areas where bed bugs may be hiding in mattresses or cushions.

Clean, Clean, Clean

Cleaning is the best way to slow new bed bug infestations. Thoroughly vacuuming carpet and rugs around and under beds and couches minimizes the chances for bed bug reproduction, and changing vacuum bags after each use prevents bed bugs from escaping and returning to their nests. Most importantly, mattresses and box springs must be vacuumed. The bedroom is a haven for bed bugs, and the most common area where they are found.

Save Money on DIY Insecticides

Attempting to locate and eradicate bed bugs and their nests is a time-consuming project, and most DIY insecticides and foggers are essentially ineffective unless they are directly applied to your bed bug targets, using highly toxic chemicals.

In the long-run, trying to treat a bed bug infestation yourself can be as costly as it is to hire a professional. Skipping the expense of handling harmful chemicals yourself saves you time and money when your bed bug problem is more than you can handle on your own.

Following these bed bug control tips allows you to rest assured that you’ll be able to save time and money, so you can get the most out of your summer.
