For those that have dealt with bed bugs, “sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite” is not a happy phrase. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help prevent bed bugs from invading and ruining your goodnight’s sleep.
Bed Bug Prevention Tips
- Check all secondhand furniture for bed bugs before bringing it into your home.
- Buy a mattress, box spring, and pillow plastic encasements to help trap and detect infestations.
- Reduce the clutter in the home to minimize hiding spaces.
- Vacuum frequently to pick up stragglers.
A huge part of controlling a bed bug infestation is working with your neighbors. The nature of bed bugs is their contagious ability to spread. Communicating with surrounding neighbors and tenants will help you control infestations and eventually prevent the spread entirely. The more you learn about bed bugs, the better equipped you will be to keep your home and family free of these nighttime terrors.
