Discovering that we have bed bugs in our bed is never a good experience for anyone and we quickly think of ways of getting rid of bed bugs so that they do not multiple and become even more of a problem than they already are. Indeed, there is not just one type of bed bug, rather there exists many different variations however they all essentially have blood sucking abilities and they are incredibly unhealthy to have in our beds especially in large numbers as they can breed quickly and in a short space of time.
If you do happen to have bed bugs then it is best to try and nip the problem in the bud so to speak and deal with it in as quick and efficient a manner as possible. These parasites tend to live and breed in the mattress so they will not be blatantly obvious to most people (occasionally they can be found in the pillows as well). One of the best ways to prevent these bugs in the first place is to apply a mattress encasement. This should be enough in itself to stop them getting anywhere near your bed initial however if you do find that they are still present then there are other options available to you.
Probably the most effective way is to use a specialized spray or powder. You should note that this means that you will unable to sleep in your bed for a few days after (in most cases) because of the makeup of the chemicals in the spray however it is probably the best method in which to rid yourself of this problem and if you combine the spraying with a mattress encasement then you should reduce the chances of ever getting bed bugs again in the future.
