Safe Vacuuming Technique for Bed Bugs

Vacuuming is a low-preparation technique for bed bug management that can reduce the number of bugs present, remove allergens and insect exoskeletons. However, bed bugs can also infest vacuums, and can spread them to different locations where the device is used. To avoid infesting vacuums, you can use a knee-high stocking between the applicator tip and the vacuum hose. Bugs get captured in the stocking, which can then be removed and discarded.

For more information about safe vacuuming for bed bugs management, see page 45 of our guide, "How to Get Bed Bugs Out of Your Belongings" hdl.handle.net/1813/55760

Heat is an effective method to kill all life stages of bed bugs when temperatures are higher than 122 degrees F. A hair dryer can be used to treat items such as luggage that may have been exposed to bed bugs.

To learn more about this technique, including how to know if your dryer reachers 122 F, see the section starting on page 49 of our guide, "How to Get Bed Bugs Out of Your Belongings" hdl.handle.net/1813/55760

Heat is an effective method to kill all life stages of bed bugs when temperatures are higher than 122 degrees F. While clothing, bed linens, stuffed animals, and other items can be put directly into the drier, shoes and other items that should not tumble can be placed in a laundry bag that is hung over the door.

Avoid Getting and Spreading Bed Bugs

Avoid Getting and Spreading Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are hitchhiking insects that travel with people on their belongings, such as work bags. If you work in a profession where you are exposed to bed bugs, or if you are dealing with an infestation at home, you can take steps to prevent the spread of bed bugs by creating a clean zone at your home. This is an area where you transition from the outdoor world to your home. The idea is to have a bin for items that were out in the world, and a bin for items that are only used in the home. Upon return to your home, place daily items in one bin, and use home items, such as a pair of comfy clothing. Clothes from the day can be dropped onto the white sheet, balled up and run through the dryer (high heat, 122 F, for 15 minutes) to kill bugs.

We are developing a factsheet on this information that will be listed below when complete. In the mean time, refer to our guide, "How to Get Bed Bugs Out of Your Belongings" hdl.handle.net/1813/55760

Pitfall Trap Under Bed Leg

Pitfall Trap Under Bed Leg

Pitfall traps are an extremely useful tool in monitoring for bed bugs. They can be placed under furniture legs, but also along walls, adjacent to and under furniture. Bugs climb up the rough surface on the outside, but are not able to cling to the smooth inner walls. As a result they get trapped in the well. There are several types of pitfall traps, but research has shown that dark-colored ones are more attractive. Sturdier traps should be used under furniture.

For more information about how to use pitfall traps in a bed bugs management program, see page 41 of our guide, "How to Get Bed Bugs Out of Your Belongings" hdl.handle.net/1813/55760
