Having bugs in your bed is quite the disgusting and terrifying prospect. No one wants to lay down each night and think about little critters climbing all over them. YIKES. In order to prepare your bed to be exterminated, do the following:
- Take everything out from under your bed. If you have items under your bed, this is a place where bed bugs can hide and multiply further.
- When you remove the items from beneath your bed, leave them in the bedroom. Moving these items to another room will only help the infestation to spread to other areas in your home.
- Once the bed bugs have been removed, you will want to continue to not store things under your bed.
Your clothing is another enticing item to bed bugs. They can cling to it easily and hide well, especially if you have a large wardrobe. In order to prepare your closet for treatment do the following:
- Be sure to remove all items from your closets. This includes everything that is hanging up, items that are on the floor, and anything that may be on shelving units in your closet as well.
- Again, be sure to not move these items to another room of your home so that you don’t risk further infestation.
If you have a lot of clutter in your home, bed bugs are likely to be extremely happy about it. When there are a lot of items in your home, it gives these pests the ability to hide much more easily. Whether it is clothing on the floor, extra furniture, or just random belongings, do the following:
- Place any items that you don’t need in the outdoor trash receptacle or in a storage unit if you do not want to get rid of it. If you choose to use a storage unit, be sure to have your items inspected first so that bed bugs do not infest your storage as well.
- Additionally, try to keep clutter to a minimum in your home moving forward.
