How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs in 4 Easy Steps


Hi, this is Josh with Bed Bug Supply
and today I want to show you how you can get rid of bed bugs
in just 4 easy steps. This is a proven, professional-strength treatment
process that stops the biting from the very first
night. Let’s get started. First, you need to stop bed bugs from reaching you in your bed.
Your mattress, box spring, and bed frame are the most common hiding places for bed
bugs so it’s the best place for you to start your
treatment. Begin by stripping off your bedding
from the mattress and bagging them in sealed garbage bags
to prevent bed bugs from escaping and infesting other parts of your home.
Take the bags directly to your washing machine, carefully unload your bedding directly inside,
taking care to reseal the bags, and wash using the hot water setting.
Once that’s done, dry the bedding on the high heat setting if possible.
This will kill any bed bugs and eggs hiding in your sheets and covers.
While your laundry cycle is running, remove your mattress and box spring
from the bed frame, then use a vacuum to remove
any bed bugs, shells, fecal droppings, or eggs that may be present
along the seams and folds of your bed. While you could use most regular
vacuums for this step, the preferred weapon of choice
is a sealed HEPA PCO vacuum. These are designed specifically
to collect bed bugs and their eggs into a sealed HEPA filter
so that nothing gets out. After you’re done going over
the bed with a vacuum, you should follow up with a steamer.
While the vacuum may have done a good job covering the surfaces
of your bed, only a steamer can effectively
penetrate deep inside your mattress, box spring, bed frame,
headboard, and footboard to kill bed bugs and eggs hiding inside.
Use the included cloth attachment to break up the moisture expelled
and steam slowly all over your bed, paying close attention to seams and folds. Once your bed has been steamed and left to dry,
spray the joints of the bed frame, headboard, and footboard
with a contact spray like STERI-FAB. This will kill bed bugs quickly
and then evaporate, leaving no residual protection,
so follow up with a residual spray to fill those cracks and crevices
with a residue that will kill bed bugs for several weeks.
After your bed has been fully treated and left to dry,
use sealed and certified bed bug proof mattress encasements
and box spring encasements, like these SafeRests,
to protect and seal off your bed. These will prevent bed bugs
from entering or escaping your mattress, reducing the potential hiding places
that they can reside in. Once your encasements have been applied,
you can put the mattress and box spring back on your treated bed frame,
and put your clean and bed bug free bedding back on your bed. In step 1, you treated your bed inside and out and made sure
that bed bugs stay out of your mattress. However, bed bugs aren’t just
hiding in your bed. They’re also likely in your furniture,
your closet, even your walls or floors – anywhere close enough for them
to detect the carbon dioxide and body heat that you emit in your sleep.
So the second step is to stop any bed bugs from climbing back into your
bed looking for a meal.
Let’s start by isolating our bed from other points of contact.
Bed bugs can’t jump or fly, so they have to crawl up something to reach
you. If your bed has hanging skirts,
let’s tuck those in or remove them. You should also remove any unnecessary
pillows, and any storage underneath the bed. And don’t forget to move your bed
away from the wall. Now that you’ve isolated the bed,
the only way bed bugs can reach you while you sleep
is by climbing up the legs. You can stop them by placing
ClimbUp Interceptors under each leg. As bed bugs attempt to get to you,
they will climb up the edge of the Interceptor and then fall
into this pitfall where they can’t escape. With these traps in place,
you can stop bed bugs from reaching you in your bed and monitor their population
over time without being bitten. This is a critical part of the treatment,
as you’re cutting off the infestation’s food supply
and inhibiting their reproduction and growth. Treating, encasing, isolating, and intercepting
your bed does two important things: it creates a safe haven for you
that bed bugs can’t reach, and it allows you to act as a lure
to bring bed bugs out from their hiding places and into the sprays and powders
that will be applied in step 4. Now that the bed is secure,
you can move on to the common bed bug hiding places.
Bed bugs are also found in your clothes, your furniture, walls, and floors.
In this third step, we’re going to hit the bugs where they’re hiding. First, remove any unnecessary clutter in the room.
Things like clothes, shoes, and books give bed bugs a place to hide
and makes treatment harder. Launder what you can in a dryer
for at least 45 minutes using high heat settings, if possible. Many personal belongings can’t be laundered or steamed,
like books, papers, luggage, shoes, and dry-clean only clothing.
These can be treated with a portable bed bug heater, like this ZappBug.
This heater will deliver lethal heat without damaging its contents.
Treat deep cracks and crevices along your baseboards, window sills,
and furniture with a vacuum cleaner, then again with a high pressure steamer.
Our bed bug steamers deliver steam that’s over 180 degrees, enough to kill bed
bugs and their eggs instantly.
Many of them, like this Vapamore, even have a steam adjustment knob
that allows you to control the flow of your steam:
low power for direct surface steaming or high power for deep penetration
into walls and upholstered furniture. Remember to move the nozzle slowly,
no more than about 1 inch per second, to ensure that all bed bugs
are adequately exposed to the heat. By now, you’ve covered most of the room
with various treatment methods. Now you just need to hit the bed bugs
that you may have missed previously and set up a long-lasting defense
to ensure that the infestation is finished off.
For our final step, you are going to use a combination
of contact and residual sprays as well as a residual powder.
First up are the contact sprays. These will kill bed bugs quickly
but offer no long-lasting protection. With that in mind, you want to make
sure that you hit bed bugs where they’re hiding, so spray
along baseboards, below drawers, behind nightstands, and on
the cushions of upholstered furniture like sofas and chairs.
Resist the temptation to spray all over the place.
Bed bugs don’t tend to hang around in open areas when they’re not feeding,
so this won’t do you any good. Instead, focus your spray on tight spaces
throughout your room that bed bugs are likely to be hiding in.
Next are the residual sprays. Residuals won’t kill as quickly
as the contact sprays did, but they will be effective for much longer.
Spray into cracks and crevices throughout the room,
like in the corners of upholstered furniture, along baseboards, and along
the edges of the carpet. Lastly, you want to use a residual powder
for places that you couldn’t use your sprays. Using a professional powder applicator,
you can apply powder into deep cracks and crevices throughout the room,
such as under appliances, in door frames, and along cracks where the wall meets the
floor. You can also puff some powder
behind the faceplates of electrical outlets and light switches.
To prevent any surviving bed bugs or eggs from repopulating the area,
you’ll want to reapply your contact and residual sprays
about two weeks after the initial treatment, then again two weeks after that,
for a total of three applications. For the sake of convenience,
we offer pre-packaged bed bug kits containing all the sprays and powders
that you’ll need, along with a professional powder applicator,
just like you see here. Regardless of what products you use,
remember to always follow the product label and MSDS
for safe and effective usage. If you followed all 4 steps,
including the follow-up treatments in the last step,
you’ll be bed bug free now. To avoid future infestations,
keep your bed encased, isolated, and intercepted, and use your
portable heater to treat luggage after coming home from trips.
The best part about this process is that you own all of the items used
once the treatment is done. This ensures that you have all
the prevention tools that you’ll need to keep bed bugs away for good.

God is great as i no longer deal with them but a couple years back oh man lemme tell you, not a single day did i wake up and say "i slept so good!". My apt was infested with them to the most for 3 years straight. We moved around 3 TIMES and still had them come with us. Its terrible how itll be 3 in the morning and you wake up tired because of how fucking itchy and irritated your body is from all the biting, then you spend an hour killing all the ones you see and as soon as the lights go off, you feel stings all over your body and you just feel hopeless because you cant SLEEP.

  11. 5 years ago this was never my concern.
    I now believe this is a new epidemic and immigration helps us none.

  12. How do you protect yourself, so you don't take them home with you? I just got a job as an apartment inspector and I am terrified….

  13. I just got up thinking of I'm hu gy I will go make something through off the sheets and saw 2 fat ones so fuk me in the ass

  17. Very good tips. Im using a lot of professional products atm and this vid uses them all and more. Ive heard bedlam is fantastic, hopefully it gets them out of my walls.

  18. I'm up at 5:00 AM, having to wake up at 8:00 AM, in my car, watching videos on this kind of stuff wishing I could burn my fucking house down.

  19. "4 Easy Steps"? — Ha, Ha! None of the steps is easy! But I think that is what it takes to terminate bed bugs.

  20. My cheap father has lived in a slum appartment for 20 years and i lived there off and on for 10 years and he/we had an infestation. Finally one day i moved out from that hell hole

  21. I need to be replaced with the super in the building, he don't do shit…. Can you work in my building…😁

  22. I wish these little fuckers were in hell not on Earth. So they can be tormenting the souls burning in hell and not tormenting us!

  23. I’m going to have an all hardwood house someday not a inch of carpet just because of fleas and bedbugs and my dogs my best friend but I can never have a dog again because the bugs just get to me. They get to me bad.

  24. I literally moved rooms in a hostel and those little abominations from hell followed me. I cleaned everything before I moved and they still found a way to come back. THESE THINGS DESERVE EXTINCTION.

  25. I swear to fucking god, I am a good person. I do good things all the time and I constantly try to better myself. I have done nothing to deserve this fucking nightmare. Not only at my house but at my mom's as well.

  26. Hello, it dosent look like bed bug supply answeres these comments. I will ask anyway. The stemming in this video is done before the poison is spread. Should I steam clean my mattresses and sofa after I’ve spread the poison.? Or would in doing so minimize the effectiness of the poison.?

  27. Thank you so much for this much needed video. I know someone who's been fighting them for 2 Year's now. They have tried everything & when I say everything I mean bc I've helped them a few time's treating and cleaning. So what you just showed me are thing's we haven't thought of like taking the casings off & treating there or steaming. We've done the heating, spraying, powders, washing, cleaning and they've gotten rid of most of their furniture & can't get new until they know they are gone for good, still they survive some how they can't get rid of them. They've gotten on top of it but their still there hiding in places & b4 they know it they're starting the whole process over again. I would guess the least they've spent is $2,000 although I'm sure it's more $$$$! & more $$$ to come!😕😔🙁😓. I feel so bad for them bed bugs are horrific! Seriously their should be a horror movie about killer monster bed bugs😂.

  28. I'm depressed because of these mother fuckers after everything they were still there it sucks I just want them gone

  29. I was looking for a comment that says I had bed bugs and got rid of them. Did not find any. There's no hope for me, I'm doomed

  30. I’m putting all of our belongings in contractor bags, with at least amount of air in them before duct taping them shut. Then place them in a non running panel van that I insulted with foil type insulation. I’ll leave it in there to bake for the next several months.

  31. Some people unknowingly bring the things home with them. Take off your clothes and shower before you get in your bed to ensure a sterile place to sleep.

  32. Im thankful for probably not having these fuckers here… Ive had differemt parasites tough… I think i dont have anything now

  33. It’s 4am and I can’t sleep, this is the second day since I discover not one, but seven bedbugs in my bed, I live with my girlfriend who is now 16 weeks pregnant and I can’t represent how upset I am.. I’m scared, I’m angry, I’m exhausted.. and it’s 4am and I can’t sleep… God why..

  34. these bugs are seriously diving me nuts. ive done all of this and they are still here after like 2 months. even IF i ever do get rid of these damn things, im scarred for life. i wake up and check everything around me, all my clothes and my bed. every spec i see i stare at, daring it to move. i live in a big house with 4 other people and its gonna be tough to get everything out of this house for an exterminator. this house is so full of stuff from kids, grandkids, and adults. it would take like a week to move all of this stuff out. not to mention where to put it all. ive even been told by friends that they cant come over anymore in fear that they will get bit. and every time i go to a friends house, i have to warn them that i have bedbugs, are you sure you want me in your house. im seriously about to sleep outside in a damn tent. im so miserable. bedbugs are EASILY my most hated thing on this planet now. if you ever get bedbugs, just move and throw away everything you own.

  35. I steam my bed 2z a week because I'm fucking terrified of getting those horrid creatures from the pit of hell. God now I'm gonna have nightmares .

  36. So, these things NOT ONLY bite you until you're a walking, talking bed bug, but they also shit on your bed, lay their bastard babies on your bed, invest all your clothes, and invest you're entire life? Yep, sign me up, I'll take 100.

  37. So, I flipped my matress up against a wall. I took EVERYTHING off of it. I stripped all my clothes. And the decided I would be safe sitting on the floor, right? WRONG. I just found one in the carpet. No where is safe. I think I'll just live in a walmart. they have clothes, food, and they're open 24/7. If anyone needs me, my new address is: Walmart

  38. My son just came in and told me he had bed bugs. It's been three f years since we got rid of them the first time. Couldn't f believe it!

  39. What if you shut all windows and doors, leave your flat unoccupied for 3-4 weeks? Will all the bed bugs die of starvation?

  40. WhAt ArE bEdBuGs FoR iN tHe WoRlD?! Really, they don't do anything for the environment. I wish they can die. And having BB is scary. I was up at 2 am because i got bit. I woke up, saw it run into a crack in the wall, i got up, looked at the crack and the entire wall is full of them. Idk what to do. They can die in the deepest pit in hell

  41. Bruh if I had all of this equipment I might as well get into killing bed bugs myself. Is this a tutorial or orientation

  42. Josh is the HOTTEST-LOOKING exterminator that you'll ever meet. Roaches, mice, bed bugs, rats, centipedes are disgusting and vile. Josh, on the other hand, is handsome and smart.

    How awesome is that?

  43. I've only found two beg bugs in my house so far. One was crawling on the floor and the other one was on my mattress. I can't find any more bugs and I've checked everywhere….

  44. Just as I thought these things were gone they come back I found exactly one after a month without seeing them and idk if that's a good sign or not we also found the source of the infestation it was our couch downstairs filled to the absolute brim with the entire Brady bunch! and then after we did that we sprayed the whole house and didn't see them for a month but then a friend came over and 1 singular one appeared after not seeing them for so long. And before I even saw one I started getting dreams of the fuckers… They're mentally touturing and I can't deal they have given me ptsd, anxiety, depression and insomnia. I've been living like this for almost 6 months and I can't take this anymore plez helpppo!!!

  45. Honestly, I'm not even sure if you did everything in this video they would all be killed. They always seem to manage to come back even after seemingly gone for 6 or more months. I'm pretty sure they would survive a nuclear war.
