Specifically, how can I get rid of bed bugs?

If you want to get rid of bed bugs you can start by stepping on them. Of course this gets a little messy especially if the bug has recently eaten. Plus, for every bed bug that you see, there are 12 that you don’t see. So stepping on them could take quite a while.

Here are much better methods to get rid of bed bugs:

  • Wash EVERYTHING in extremely hot water. This includes clothes, sheets, curtains, throw rugs, and any other linens that can go in the washer.
  • Vacuum relentlessly! If you are traveling, vacuum out your luggage and all bags inside and out. Pay close attention to the seams.
  • At home, vacuum all furniture, carpets, and floors. Make sure you change the bag outside, as hatch-lings can wiggle through stitch holes.
