Bed bugs are typically pests found in a bed, although, they can be found elsewhere in your home as well. If you have bed bugs in other areas of your home, you may have a bed bug problem that is already out of control. If your pest problem is out of control, you could have a problem getting rid of these pests yourself. You should hire a pest control company to help you get rid of the pest problem, as bed bugs can be a difficult pest to get rid of. Read on for a few things you can do to help get rid of these pests.


You need to vacuum your living room and the other areas of your home daily. Empty the canister of the vacuum outside of your home to prevent them from returning to your home. Vacuum your upholstered furniture as well, such as sofas, chairs, ottomans, and any other upholstered items that cannot fit into a bag or your washer/dryer. Vacuum these areas daily, and vacuum up as many live bed bugs as you can. You should also use the vacuum extension hose to vacuum your baseboards, lampshades, and other areas of your home.

Wipe And Clean Everything

Bed bugs aren't just found in the upholstery or carpeting of your home, you may find them on your tables, decor, or your light fixtures as well. If you have found bed bugs in these areas, you're going to need to clean and wipe down everything in your home daily to help get rid of these pests.
