What to Do About Bed Bugs in Long Beach, CA

As you lie in bed, you feel your skin begin to itch. When you awake, you find dozens of tiny red marks— a battlefield of irritating bug bites marking your skin. 

This is a horrible feeling— knowing that bed bugs are creeping in your mattress, waiting to pounce as you sleep. If this describes your situation, we’re going to give you some tips on how to get rid of Bed bugs in your Long Beach home. 

  1. Start by washing the bedding, linen and curtains of the room. 
  2. Next, treat the mattress. Bed bugs have small, flat bodies, which enable them to squeeze into the tightest of spaces. They can easily hide in a mattress, so you’ll need to aggressively treat it. You can use an aerosol spray, and target the seams, tufts, and folds of the mattress. After doing so, you should encase the mattress in a bed bug-proof cover. 
  3. Next, treat the box spring and/or bed frame for your bed bugs. Be sure to vigilantly look out for cracks and crevices, as bed bugs will exploit any open space as a place to hide. 
  4. Treat the rest of the room. With a bed bug spray, target furniture, the floor, the walls, and any other area where bed bugs can potentially hide.
