Ways to keep your home pest free


Clean and declutter

Unnecessary clutter such as boxes and knick-knacks can be excellent hiding places for bed bugs, so eliminate these items as much as possible. Bed bugs are not a sign of a dirty home! Anyone can get bed bugs. Cleaning and decluttering regularly will make it easier to spot areas where bed bugs are hiding.

Use the vacuum

Manually removing bed bugs and the eggs with a vacuum is a good way to get a large number of bugs out quickly. It may seem like an inefficient approach, but every bed bug you can pick up with the vacuum is one less bug that can reproduce in your home!

You can purchase bed bug encasements for your mattresses and box springs. The mattress and box spring must be encased separately. Encasements can be used to prevent an infestation of your mattress or box spring, or they can be used as a way to salvage your items after they have become infested.

Monitoring for pests

Bed bug monitors can be used to help you identify areas of concern. There are a variety of monitor types available, but the most common is the interceptor style.
