The EPA's Top Tips For Preventing & Controlling Bed Bugs
Here at the Bed Bug Store, we’re focused on one thing: creating the best all-natural bed bug killer products on the market so that you can enjoy your home without fear of being attacked by parasitic insects.
The natural bed bug killers that we sell here are made with all-natural ingredients because we feel that this is the safest and most effective way to eliminate a bed bug infestation. However, we’re well aware of the fact that most people would rather not deal with bed bugs in the first place. They’d happily invest in bed bug killing spray in the world for assurances that they could prevent bed bugs from ever getting into their home in the first place.
We hear you
That’s why we also offer some of the best all-natural bed bug prevention products, as well as residual insecticide products that provide long-lasting protection after your fears have subsided.
We’ll talk more about our natural bed bug killing and prevention products later on in this post, but for now, enjoy these tips for preventing bed bug infestations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
1. Reduce The Number Of Potential Hiding Spaces
The best way to protect your home against bed bug infestations is to reduce the number of places in which they can nest. This means cleaning up clutter, which provides lots of handy hiding spaces, making repairs to walls, floors, wallpaper, door jambs, and window sills that might have cracks into which bed bugs can scurry when they’re done eating (your blood).
2. Wash And Heat-Dry Any Linens That Touch The Floor
Bed bugs love hanging out in dirty laundry and linens almost as much as they love biting your legs at night. Linens that regularly touch the floor (sheets, blankets, bedspreads) are basically an escalator for bed bugs. These linens allow them to easily access your mattress and box springs. By washing your sheets and blankets regularly, you may kill some bed bugs and eliminate their eggs before they hatch. Remember, hot heat--which bed bugs hate--is the key during this process.
3. Use Bed Bug Travel Protection Products
Bed bugs are notorious hitchhikers. If you truly want to prevent them from entering your home, you’ve got to make sure they don’t hitch a ride from other places (hotel rooms, Airbnbs, boats, planes, etc) into your house via luggage and clothing. Use the Bed Bug Store’s full selection of travel protection products, like disposable mattress covers, bed bug traps, and travel-sized bed bug killing spray to protect yourself and your home from adventurous bed bugs.
4. Sanitize With Steam
It’s very important to mention that the presence or absence of bed bugs has nothing to do with cleanliness. Bed bugs can thrive in a 5-star hotel room just as easily as they can in a seedy roadside motel that time has forgotten. However, cleaning and sanitizing your dwelling provides peace of mind, results in a more pleasant living space, and gives you the perfect opportunity to check for the possible presence of bed bugs, fleas, cockroaches, silverfish, and other common household pests.

What If You Discover Signs Of Bed Bugs While Cleaning?
So what happens if you’re happily sanitizing your furniture, or exploring your new hotel room, and you spot one of the signs that bed bugs may be cohabitating with you?
