Best method to control bed bugs

Bed bugs can easily get out of control. Knowing which tools to use to control should be your first defence! 

 

Mattress Encasements 

Mattress encasements designed specifically for bed bugs will trap and kill any bed bugs in your mattress and box spring and prevent future bed bugs from getting into their nooks and crannies. Encasements provide a smooth, white surface that makes it easy to see signs of future bed bug activity.

These mattress encasements are also a great solution for asthma sufferers, bed wetting, and dust mites. Click here to see our full list of mattress solutions


Traps & Monitors

Bed bug traps, such as the Blackout Bed Bug Interceptors and the ClimbUp Insect Monitors prevent bed bugs from crawling up the legs of beds and other furniture. Instead of reaching where people sit and sleep, the bugs get trapped in the devices and cannot get out. Other bed bug traps use lures to attract bed bugs away from sleeping and resting areas. As well, pest control traps help you monitor for future bed bug activity. Check traps regularly for early signs of bed bug introductions so you can act quickly before an infestation develops.  

 

Diatomaceous Earth

Lightly apply Diatomaceous Earth to bed bug pitfall traps, baseboards, and the cracks and crevices of bed frames, box springs, mattress seams, dressers and furniture using a dry paint brush or hand bulb duster. Bed bugs walk through the DE, which scratches their waxy exoskeleton. This causes them to dry out and die. Bed bugs are growing increasingly resistant to bed bug pesticides, which makes DE one of the best bed bug killers in Canada. Learn about DE and how to use it.

 

Aerosol Pesticides 

Pest HQ sells professional bed bug spray to the DIY or do-it-yourself market. This includes aerosol bed bug pesticide, which is a most effective bed bug treatment when applied according to the label directions. The label explains how to use the aerosol, where to apply it, how often it can be applied, and more. Bed bug spray in Canada is regulated by Health Canada and the label is the law. 

  

Once you get rid of bed bugs, you never want them to come back. As such, be careful to not reintroduce them to your home or business. Before traveling, check the bed bug registry for hotels with bed bug problems. Ask visitors to store backpacks and purses in a plastic bin by the door. Keep a bin at work to store your personal belongings. Thoroughly inspect used furniture before bringing it home. Use bed bug traps and monitors to identify early signs of bed bug activity.
