Bed bugs are famous for their nomadic way of living. Although they do not spread major diseases, they are undoubtedly one of the most annoying pests that exist today. Once they enter your home, getting rid of these chinches can be a painstaking task.
So if you are to bring new furniture inside your home, especially second-hand or used things, be sure to run a thorough check to prevent these unwelcomed guests from enjoying your home. You only need two things for this task – a strong flashlight and an insecticidal spray.
1. The first thing you need to do is to keep your newly purchased furniture outside from your home as much as possible until you manage to check the presence of bed bugs.
2. Check the furniture inch by inch, and be sure to keep an eye for fecal remains of bed bugs, which are usually dark-red and black in color.
3. Use your flashlight if you are finding bed bugs in the furniture’s cracks and other spots that are hard to see.
4. Bed bugs are known to reside even in un-upholstered parts of the furniture such as woods and crevices so be sure to double check these areas.
Tips and Recommendation
Once you determine that your new furniture is infested with bed bugs, it is time for you to use the bed bug control insecticide. Patiently wait at least 24 hours for a more desirable result.
