Step 2: Bed Bug Extermination

If you’ve executed preparation effectively, bed bug extermination should be simple.

Spray your home from top to bottom with a non-toxic bed bug spray. Doing this will get rid of any bed bugs that managed to sneak by you during prep.

Step 3: Follow Up and Prevention

Don’t remove your belongings from the clear plastic bags for at least two weeks. It will help you track any ongoing bed bug activity so you can take care of it right then and there.

Inspect your home every two weeks and spray for bed bugs as needed.

The most important part of this step is doing your part to avoid a re-infestation. While you can’t ever 100% prevent bed bugs from entering your home, you can protect yourself from things getting out of control.

Use a mattress encasement to stop bed bugs from entering your mattress. If you have any stragglers hiding in your bed, a bed bug proof mattress cover will trap them inside where they can’t get to you.

Don’t bring any furniture into your home from the curb and wash any secondhand items immediately after purchasing.

If you see any more bed bug activity in your home, start the process over. Call a professional bed bug exterminator right away.
