Hotel, motel, and apartment owners have one fear in common — no, not bad customers — bed bugs. These little critters can lay up to one to five eggs in a single day, which equates to more than 500 in a lifetime. So if you’ve got a single bed bug in your hotel, you’ll soon have thousands.

Unfortunately, bed bugs are a common issue throughout the nation, with one in five Americans having an infestation in their home or they at least know someone who has encountered bed bugs at home or in a hotel. But how do you get rid of them? They don’t die without a fight, that’s for sure. Modern bed bug populations are very resistant to insecticides used for their control, which is why more bed bug incidences are popping up across the nation.

As a result of breeding these super bugs and natural selection, it is harder to treat the problem, unless you use an organic bed bug treatment. An organic bed bug treatment is a non-toxic bed bug treatment that doesn’t use harsh chemicals. Using chemicals can not only harm your belongings, but also your health. Although a natural bed bug treatment may be more expensive or time consuming, it guarantees the elimination of these pests.

Here are a few ways to naturally get rid of bed bugs once and for all.

Remove Clutter: Bed bugs love clutter because it offers them a place to hide. Because these insects are so small (no larger than a pencil eraser), they are difficult to exterminate. By removing clothes, newspapers and any other junk in the bedroom, the bugs will have no place to hide.

Wash Bedding: Laundering the bedding in your hotel, apartment building, or house is a great way to keep the bed bugs at bay. Make sure to turn the washer to the hottest setting and dry the sheets thoroughly.

Hot Steamer: You can always rent or buy a hot steamer which will quickly remove the bed bugs because they hate the heat. Make sure to get the steamer around the baseboards of the beds and in any nooks and crannies around the bedroom.

Diatomaceous Earth: This organic bed bug treatment is a naturally occurring pest-eliminator that is composed of dead algae. This can be purchased online but you should read the instructions carefully.

Thermal Remediation: Heat treatment for bed bugs is probably the best way to go. Thermal heaters to kill bed bugs are used to crank the room temperatues up to 140 degrees for two hours, or 130 degrees for three hours. Heat is non-toxic and can kill the bugs at all stages of their life cycle.

Of all the organic bed bug treatments out there, thermal remediation will probably be the most successful. Contact a thermal remediation services company today and get an estimate of the cost and what the benefits are.
