    Hi Amanda,

    If this is the start of your infestation then you will need to begin treatment by encasing both your mattress and box spring. Following the encasements we strongly recommend that you treat the infested area with long residual sprays which will help you to continually eliminate the bed bugs and control their numbers to a minimum and eliminate them. If you have any other questions, please ask (:

    i had a problem with those little demons. the way i got rid of them was not easy.i started by burning all my furniture including my bed couches chair and even my tv stand.i had to pull up all the carpet and spray. they also hide in outlets,walls and floor boards. i tried to kill them without getting rid of my furniture but they live deep inside.now that i am rid of them i am parinoid of getting them again

    Glad to hear that you are rid of your infestation (: Yes they could be quite a pain…. they are horrible. As a precautionary measure many people keep their mattress and box spring encased. You may want to consider it as well if you have not yet encased your mattress and box spring. But thanks for your input. its nice to know that we’re not alone dealing with these pests…

    How can i tell if i have them bc my neighbor got it

    Hello Kellie!
    You want to look for signs like blood spot stains on the sheet. These blood spots will come from when you crush them as they are feeding at night. Also, you want to inspect the mattress for bed bugs. Looking at the mattress lining and sheet linings, you can look for black feces or even the bed bugs themselves. Also, spottings of bed bugs will mean that you have a large infestation. If you live in a house, it will not be possible for you to get bed bugs from your neighbor, unless they are bringing in furniture, clothes, toys, or etc. from their house to your house. If you live in apartment building however, it is possible to get them from your neighbor. If you are getting bit and night and think that it may be a bed bug infestation, consider getting an inspection done by a professional and then calling us at 1-800-788-4142 for bed bug control products. After you get the initial inspection done by a professional, you can always do your own follow up treatments with the same grade products that the professionals are using so give us a call!

    Hi there! I’ve recently noticed tiny, I mean barely visible clear sort of bugs on my bed sheets and mattress pad that look way smaller and lighter than all of the pictures of “bed bugs” that I’ve seen. I’ve had an awful eczema type rash for over a month that gets worse intermittently and I’ve never had anything like it before so I’m blaming it on these little guys as the likely cause. I just want to know what else they could be if not bed bugs and how to get rid of them. I’ve currently vacuumed the daylights out of my carpet and mattress and box spring and washed everything possible in hot water and over-dried on high heat. I did this 3 days ago and they were gone for 2 days but came back. I picked up about 20 or more on a piece of clear tape to maybe bring to someone to help me figure out exactly what my problem is here, but I’m not sure who that would be. What do you think and what do you recommend? I’m likely to purchase a mattress and box spring cover shortly, I’m hoping I can deal with this without having to call an exterminator because I understand it can be quite pricey. Please help. Thanks !

    Hi Jess,
    The nymphs of bed bugs are almost translucent before they feed, however, it may not be the same bugs that you are talking about. You should bring the piece of tape that has the bugs stuck on there to an entimologist at a university or a local pest control management company to identify the bug. Mattress covers and box spring encasements as well as a contact kill spray called Steri-Fab may give you some control until you gain a better understanding of what has infested your home. Until you can identify the bug however, there are not many options in control because a lot of the pesticides that we sell will be concentrated for a specific bug or type of bug. You can always give us a call at 1-800-788-4142, once you have identified the bug.

    I’m currently in the process of de-fleaing my home this Summer and my children are on all sorts of prescription creams and antibiotics for their bites, when the exterminator suggested that I may also have Bed Bugs in my home!!!! He said that there isn’t anything you can do to kill them and my pediatrician said “don’t go looking for horses where you only see zebras” Could I possibly have both? How can I tell and how can you help me and my family??

  12. 12

    I’m with your doctor on this one; don’t stress out. If you really want to check to see if you have bed bugs, look up pictures of the actual bugs and their bites on google to get an idea of what to look out for. Then, strip your mattress and box springs and check the seams of each corner for any signs of bed bugs or bed bugs themselves. Don’t see feces stains, blood stains, eggs, or the bed bugs? Then you’re fine, don’t worry! If you do, then we can recommend products for you, but you shouldn’t freak out because the infestation should be relatively new and small. Just keep your calm and check and let us know 🙂

    I have been battleing these little freaks for about a year. They are hard suckers to kill. I thought I got the best of them last November, but came to realize that they just didn’t like the cold weather. Im in FLA so when April came around, so did they. I have thrown away four beds, pulled up carpets in both bedrooms, and thrown away numerous picture frames! Wow-they are worse than cockaroaches. I also heard that ladybugs kill them, is that true?

  14. 14

    I have also hired an exterminator to the tune of $800 and it did absolutely nothing-needless to say he didn’t get paid in full.

  15. 15

    Oh wow, I’m sorry to hear you had to throw so much stuff away! But I agree, I think bed bugs are the worst pests that you could possibly get (termites and ticks come in a close second and third). I looked into the lady bug eating bed bug thing, but it seems it’s only a theory for now. It does seem that fire ants will eat bed bugs though! And as for the exterminator, I’m glad you didn’t have to pay in full!

    i am an onsite manager of a clean n sober housing, we have 10 rooms infeasted w/ bbugs.the management will not address the severity of the issue we bomb n bomb spray n spray we have cedar planking upstairs in all my room,(5), which is an issue owner would never tear it out, n it may be a compromise of the upper structure.i’m at a loss…

  17. 17

    Hi Christine, if the management won’t listen to you, then direct them over to us and we can spook them enough to take measures! Bed bugs can turn into a very serious, very hard to control infestation if left alone and untreated for long enough. Because the infestation is quite large at this point, I think it’s time for you to either purchase the Bed Bug Commercial Kit we sell or to call in an exterminator. Bombing will not work whatsoever, so there’s no point in you wasting your money on that. Feel free to contact us again if you have any further questions.

    Hey, I have had to help my ex with his pest bed bug problem after using 20 cans of raid! And renting machine cleaner using vinegar and rug cleaner! It seemed to have worked.Two years later we decided to move in together and now we have it all over? I had purchased brand new Bedroom sets for me and my 3 kids recently.I don’t want to have to get arid of them. The landlords are too cheap and dont want to bother helping! I’m gonna be moving to a 5 bdrm house and I dont want travel these bed pests with me! What can I do I have tried raid and vinegor and it seem to work just for a little bit but it came back! I don’t know what else to do.Please help ! Thank you and take care!

    Hi Medley,
    If you were willing to spend that much money on that many cans of Raid, you probably would have been better off purchasing a few professional grade products for less! If these are the same bed bugs you dealt with a few years ago, they are probably resistant to Raid and vinegar by now. Therefore, the best thing for you to do at this point would be to call in a professional exterminator to combat these bed bugs brutally or to take measures into your own hands and purchase professional-grade pesticides. You definitely want to at least get an IGR and a liquid insecticide like Phantom to at least control the number of bugs you have now. Since your infestation is large at this point, it would be best if you purchased either several bed bug control kits or the commercial kit with additional products. Whether you decide to call an exterminator or not is up to you, but know that you need to take action NOW before the problem gets even worse! Good luck! And try to hold off on moving to your new house for now.

    About 3 weeks ago after having been awaken the night before,I did find one bug crawling on my bed about 4am in the morning. I immediately called the leasing office and they brought an exterminator to check my place. I had thrown my mattress and box springs away so when he came, he found one bug and 4 “eggs”. The eggs really looked more like feces but he knows more than I do. We have since found 1 bug in the other bedroom. I have not seen any more at any other location in my house. It seems I may not have a large problem yet but if they do not hurry and treat my place, it will get bad. He said I should run everything through the dryer on high heat and then put them in a tightly sealed plastic bags. I have to pack my house just as if I was moving. I think he may be carrying it a bit far. Since it is going to be in the upper 90s this weekend, I am going to pack some boxes and put them in the hot car (which should beabout 130 degrees). That should help somewhat; just don’t know how far to go before it becomes overkill.

    Hi Barbara,
    I know all of these measures seem extreme and unnecessary, but they actually are. In fact, what your exterminator suggested is essential if you don’t want the bed bug infestation getting out of hand and spreading to other areas of your house. In all honesty, putting the boxes in your car is probably not a good idea. The bed bugs will probably not die inside the box, which will be cooler than the interior of the car. Please follow your exterminator’s advice for now; he seems to really know what he’s doing!

    My son was visting his grandpa’s house and he came home with bites on him. I believe they might be bed bug bites. I washed all his clothes right away and our bedding. I do not have any bites only him. Is it possible that he can bring the bedbugs to my house? What do I do?

  23. 23

    Okay my friend spent the nite one day ago and come to find out he has bed bugs should I just buy two cans of spray or what should I do? Please email me back thank you:)

  24. 24

    The first best thing would be to encase your mattress and box spring. Following that you can use Bedam for treatment and it will help you prevent further spreading of the infestation 😀

  25. 25

    Hi Leah,
    Thankfully, it’s not likely that he brought bed bugs with him unless they latched onto his clothes. As long as you washed and dried the clothes as well as any bedding he has come into contact with on high heat, you should be fine. For now, I would just keep an eye out for the little critters. If you can’t find any signs of them, you might want to purchase a bed bug monitor/glue trap to place around beds. Hopefully, all is well and any bed bug that might have hitchhiked on your son’s clothes died in the wash!

    Hi i live in a mobile home park and my neighbour happen to have bed bugs and took all her stuff out can the bed bugs travel to my trailer?? I’m concerned for the fact that i have a baby of 6months.

  27. 27

    Oh and by the way can vinegore and bleach kill the bed bugs? I’m so freaked out please answer my post as soon as possible because if they can travel from that trailer to mine that’s gona be the worst days of my life.

  28. 28

    Hi Vanessa,

    I don’t know how effectively vinegar or bleach would kill bed bugs. I have not heard of anyone using those substances to kill bed bugs. If they do kill them, the most these household items could do is kill the bed bugs you see. It will not kill the eggs and it will not kill the bed bugs you cannot see, which will simply reproduce. It’s not very likely that they will travel from trailer to trailer unless the trailers share a wall or you lay down in the infested bed of the infested trailer then lay in your own bed.

  29. 29

    Hi Vanessa,
    As long as you don’t touch the infested stuff and don’t bring it into your own home, you should be fine. I think you should try to stay away from the area where all her infested stuff is until it is all gone though, just to be safe.

    I’ve been battling these demons for a year. I live in an apartment complex and me and my son have been getting bit. My husband on the other hand sleeps in the same bed and has not been bit once. We had exterminators out to treat five times and after having to pack everything up and cleaning everything it got to hectic. Finally we thought they were gone once the weather broke. Sad to say me and my son are being bit again. Mind you have no marks on the bed or sheets and have yet to see on one the lil blood suckers. I’m freaking out can’t sleep I feel like something is crawling on me at all times… Can someone please help with an inexpensive suggestion that does not involve throwing out furniture. I’m willing to do anything but that, don’t have enough money to throw out my furniture. Please help!!!

  31. 31

    I have learned to bath my son in Avons skin so soft that is the only thing that prevents him from gettin bit until we are treated for the last time… Don’t kno when that will happen have been treated six times last year! Also take a cotton ball and smear the skin so soft on thir bedding and dryer sheets seem to work too. Just some helpful tips while being treated and the treatment is failing 🙂

    Hello, I’m very sorry to hear that. Yes, bed bugs are a pain and can be difficult to get rid of. The key to removal and control is consistency and thoroughness with chemical treatment. Although the products may seem expensive, they are necessary for a complete control. We have an extensive collection of bed bug kits that will help to control all areas of each room.
    The kits will more or less include:
    Aerosol Spray – these are effective for intimate areas like the bed or other furniture. It provides a contact kill and a short residual of about 2 weeks so aerosols should be reapplied every two weeks until necessary.
    Liquid concentrate with an IGR – Liquid concentrates are also included in the kit. These are mixed with water. DO NOT over concentrate, instead refer to the product label for the appropriate dilution rates. These are applied to broad areas like the carpets, rugs, or even base board areas of each room, the immediate surrounding area around the furniture, and etc. Also, the IGR can be mixed into the same gallon of water as the concentrate insect liquid concentrate. IGR stands for Insect Growth Regulator and although it does not have a killing effect, it will interrupt the reproduction cycle. Both the liquid concentrate and the IGR have a residual of about 3-4 months and therefore only need to be reapplied after about three months.
    Dust Product and Duster – Dust products are effective because they provide the longest residual time. This is about 4-6 months. They are the most effective in areas that are hard to reach or access. These are places like in the wall void area behind outlets and light switches, behind or under furniture like book cases or picture frames, and etc.
    If you have any questions about the products or sales, you can always contact us again or call us directly at 1-800-788-4142.

    Hello…how exactly would we encase the mattress and box spring? I actually found one yesterday, so my suspisions have been confirmed. GREAAAAT. Wish me luck.

  34. 34

    Hi Jessica. Encasements are made to cover the entire mattress and box spring. It’s basically a mattress cover. The material that is used traps the bed bugs inside the mattress, ultimately, starving them. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to protect yourself from bed bugs that are outside of the mattress but there are other products for that. Eco Keeper has released the bed bug tent, made specifically for protection against bed bugs and their bites while you are treating your home. Of course, since the mesh is so fine, it will protect you from other bugs as well. If you have any questions on other bed bug products or bed bug control, feel free to tune in again!

    Hello, I must start with my house has been treated for bed bugs this past summer and seems to have worked because it was re-checked twice and there where no signs of bugs. I have now found one big blood stain on my pillow and 4 pin head stains on my sheets. Should I get rechecked for bed bugs?

  36. 36

    Hi Denise,

    Yes, for precaution, you should get an inspection done. One treatment usually does not eradicate an infestation and may take several treatments.

    I am in a carpool and one of the riders has bed bugs. I checked my car after he left tonight and found one. I called him and told him he can’t ride with me any more. I took the blanket and towel coverings off and put them in the wash on hot. I vacuumed by whole car. I threw out the vacuum bag. When I came in the house I went down to the washer, put the blanket and towels in the dryer, stripped and washed all the clothes I was wearing. Do I need to spray the inside of my vehicle with anything.

  38. 38

    Hi Wendy,

    That is honestly difficult to say. I am not sure how long he was carpooling in the car for and how bad his infestation is/was. It sounds like what you are doing so far to take precautions are very good. It may not be necessary to spray, however, if you are looking for a product for precaution, we recommend using a product like Bedlam Bed Bug spray or Phantom Pressurized Aerosol Spray. This should sprayed in areas like under the seats and in the trunk. Insecticide is not meant to be sprayed on the upholstery, so unfortunately, there is not much that we can do for the seats, but you can spray the aerosol under the seats. I hope that helped you! If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact us again.
