Does Anything Keep Bed Bugs Away?

The unfortunate irony of bed bug infestations is that, more often than not, we inadvertently  bring them inside ourselves. So in that way, every property is at risk, no matter how clean you keep your property. With that in mind, how can you prevent bed bugs? 

To help prevent bed bugs, you should:

  • Know the signs of an infestation
  • Inspect used items and furniture pieces 
  • Travel smarter
  • Take precautions at home

How to Keep Bed Bugs Away

There are several strategies you can take to prevent bed bugs from taking up residence in your home. This includes:

  • Recognizing the signs early on, like dark fecal spots or blood stains on bedding, or itchy red bumps on exposed parts of the body. 
  • Inspect used items and furniture for signs of bed bugs before bringing them into the home.
  • Inspect your hotel room when traveling, and unpack carefully when returning home.

Preventing a Bed Bug Infestation in Broken Arrow OK

The methods listed above will help greatly in reducing the risk of bed bug infestations – but you can still do more. If you reduce clutter in your home and vacuum on a regular basis, you create less space for bed bugs (as well as other pests) to hide and reproduce. This is especially important for people living in dorms and apartments, which are both spaces at particular risk for infestation.

Professional Bed Bug Prevention

As we said above, you can do everything right and still experience a bed bug infestation. You need to act quickly as soon as you wake up to an itchy bite, or a mysterious dark stain on your bedding. And though there are DIY bed bug prevention methods, none of them are as effective as treatment from a professional pest control company like Arrow Exterminators, Inc..
