The best way to get rid of bedbugs is the same for dust mites too
The fact is, bed bugs and dust mites both love to have an abundance of hiding places. This is why we always tell people to get rid of clutter and vacuum everything in the room 100%. Bed bugs will usually be hiding in the mattress seams and bed frame, while dust mites will prefer to live in the bed sheets and quilts, as well as dusty and dirty drapes and carpet.
Avoiding the high cost of a bed bug or dust mite exterminator
Both bedbugs and dust mites make you feel itchy as you lie in bed trying to fall asleep- usually unsuccessfully until you just pass out from exhaustion. A massive home cleaning of vacuuming and even potentially steam cleaning, washing all bed linens, sheets and comforters on high heat and/or drying on high heat when possible will take care of 50% of the battle.
Bed Bug exterminators will often try to get more money out of you than is necessary. This is why we recommend a do-it-yourself approach to bed bugs, ticks, fleas, ants and more because you really can find a natural and safe bed bug killer that also works equally well on dust mites.
A preventive measure like a passive powder based all natural bed bug killer strategically placed between the bed frame and the mattress, dusting around the bed frame joints, applying product in the baseboards and around the bed near the base on the floor is also a great way to take proactive and effective killing strategies for eliminating bed bugs and dust mites. Cleaning and preventive measures are probably the most effective and best way to get rid of bed bugs.
Avoiding dangerous chemicals in bed bug sprays
We prefer a natural approach to pest control and bug eradication ourselves, but everyone is different. We believe that a naturally derived mechanical-action based pest control agent is the safest and best long-term. Bed bugs and even dust mites which are tiny when compared to the size of the average bed bug can build up a resistance to modern day chemical based bedbug insect killers like Pyrethrin, which is a natural compound, but these critters will never escape the piercing sharp edges of the best natural freshwater amorphous silica based bed bug product.
Still the best way to prevent bed bugs bites is to keep a close eye out where ever you go. Bed bugs can be picked up at a friend’s house, by hugging someone, in movie theater seats, at airports, schools, daycare centers, public office buildings, courtrooms and council chambers, buses, and yes bed bugs hide even where you apply for social services.
Bed bugs and dust mites are not that dangerous, but they are super annoying when you can’t go to sleep and feel uneasy from all the itchiness.
