Hi Friend!

After the multiple treatments and patience of waiting to deal with the bed bug infestation in your home, how do you know if bed bugs are really gone? There are certain ways how you can conclude that the bugs are no longer in your home, but it is somehow impossible to say that they are 100% gone and completely eradicated right after the treatment.

Unfortunately, bed bugs are particularly known for their great hibernating, waiting, and hiding skills. They can actually stay alive for weeks or even a year, especially if they were able to find a convenient hiding place.

How to Tell If the Bed Bug Infestation is Finally Over

There are several ways how you can tell if the repeat treatments worked in the infested areas in your home and you will no longer get bed bug bites. Some of the things you can do to make sure that the treatments done in your home have worked include the following:

  • Isolate your beds and furniture and use bed bug traps.

Detect the presence of a bed bug infestation by simply placing the bed bug detector under the legs of the beds, furniture, etc. You can use this after the treatment and monitor for bed bugs. Any bugs in hiding will come out and try to reach you. In the long run, you’ll know if there are still many remaining since the bugs will get caught in the interceptors. When using bed bug traps, see to it that not a single piece of your bedding is hanging or touching the floor or walls.

  • Even after the treatment, wash your bedding and vacuum your bed regularly.

In order to make sure that you will not have to deal with these critters after the treatment, wash your bedding and vacuum your bed regularly. Use high heat in both washing and drying the sheets to kill any pregnant females and their eggs hiding in the bedsheets, blankets, or pillow covers.

We recommend adding SayByeBugs Bed Bug Extermination Laundry Treatment to the wash cycle. The product offers a concentrated dose of our all-natural ingredients to eliminate bed bugs on linens, clothes and other washable items.

  • Use bed bug mattress and box spring encasements.

One thing to prevent bites from remaining pesky critters in your bed is to use mattress encasements and box spring covers. Keep these on for at least 18 months to kill the bugs.

  • Put other possibly infested items in plastic bags.

Make sure that all items are completely free from the bugs by putting them in sealable bags. Keep it sealed for a couple of months to a year just to suffocate and starve all remaining bugs.

Monitoring and detection of any remaining signs of bed bugs are crucial things that must be done after treatments. These are effective ways of confirming if the bed bug infestations were successfully controlled or resolved completely.
