How to get rid of bed bugs naturally? Among ways of getting rid of bed bugs in house conditions, there is a number of those, which were used by our ancestors prior to production of synthetic sprays.
Turpentine, kerosene, denatured alcohol, cresol, and vinegar are the most known from these. Each of them in pure form or as a part of the complex solution can be applied on the infected or alleged habitats of bugs in the apartment daily throughout the long period. At the same time, mixes based on kerosene and turpentine with the addition of the naphthalene or camphor, are possible to be used for processing of corners of wooden furniture, floors, and plinths. Use not rubber, but special polyethylene gloves.
However, sofas, beds, chairs and carpets can be spoiled by such means, as their oily basis will leave spots. Usually, alcohol solutions are used for processing of a fabric surface. For example, 5 grams of naphthalene are mixed in a glass of denatured alcohol. Anyway, the processed apartment should be left for some time, at least for about 6-8 hours (a day or two better). The pungent smell of these remedies won’t allow falling asleep. Is it worth to use specialized services? Often the firms specializing in the processing of apartments make removal of bugs for once regardless of the sizes of the processed room. Usually on a case of detection of room bugs after such processing, the service gives a guarantee for the free repeated procedures.
One minus of such way of fight against room bugs is a full isolation of the placement for the period of influence of an insecticide: usually 6-7 hours. During this period, all inhabitants have to be evacuated from the apartment; ware, tableware, and personal care products should be densely packed.
