Tips to Avoid Bed Bugs

One of the biggest issues that currently sweeping college campuses that nobody is talking about is: Bed Bugs. As a previous Resident Assistant I can tell you first hand that this is not something that you want to be dealing with and is an issue that can be easily avoided. With these reasons that is why I am here to help you and ensure that no Bugs crawl into your bed. I have tips ranging from Hot Water all the way to Bed Bug Powder, here to help you in new and creative ways.

Wash ALL sheets and clothes in HOT water

I cannot emphasize this enough, when washing your clothes and sheets please wash ALL articles of clothing. Of course it is annoying to have to wash almost every single item you own but in the end it will pay off. Bed Bugs love to cling onto your sheets and then clothes and if you do not wash an item that contains bed bugs they may jump onto your other articles. After doing laundry once nobody wants to have to deal with washing all of your clothes for a second time. So one of the first steps that I recommend is to wash all of your sheets and clothing in HOT water to ensure that bugs are not left clinging to your any cloth.

Bed Bug Powder

So you have washed everything and Bed Bugs still seem to be an issue? Why not try some Bed Bug Powder; it is safe to humans so there is no worry for any issues. What you will need to do is lay down the powder on your bed, let the Bed Bug Powder settle, and then go to bed! The Bed Bug Powder should dehydrate the Bed Bugs and then after around 24 hours you should see significant improvement of the annoyance that is Bed Bugs, thanks Bed Bug Powder!

Sleep at a Friend’s House or Couch

Following the two steps above I would also recommend that for at least the first or second night to either crash at a friend’s house or sleep on your couch. The main goal in killing bed bugs is to kill the spread of them and wait for them all to die out. Once you have washed all clothing and sheets in hot water and used the Bed Bug Powder, wait it out for a day or two and then finally return to your comfy bed and you will be bed bug bite free!
