Bed bugs have been invading more and more homes and businesses in NJ. If you see these bugs in your home, you can take steps to get rid of some of them on your own. Just keep in mind that you’ll need help from Ocean County pest control professionals to completely eliminate them from your NJ home.
What You’ll Need
To get rid of bed bugs by hand, you’ll need to gather a few supplies. These include a flashlight for checking darker areas that bed bugs can hide in, such as crevices. You’ll also need an older credit card to check cracks and other narrow gaps for these pests. You should also keep plastic bags handy for linens and other items that could be infested with these pests. If you’ve seen bed bugs on your mattress, you’ll also need a mattress encasement to trap them.
How to Catch Bed Bugs
You can catch bed bugs with a tape roll, which helps you trap and identify these pests. You can also use a cloth and bucket of soapy water for washing areas that are potentially infested. Taking these steps can help you reduce the number of bed bugs that are in your home.
