Bed Bugs: What NOT to do


  • panic. You can control bed bugs with careful inspection and by using proper control methods.
  • try to kill bed bugs by using agricultural or garden pesticides. Using outdoor pesticides to control bed bugs can make you or your family very sick.
  • use products that appear to be “homemade” or “custom formulated.” Homemade products could be dangerous and they might make the problem worse.
  • use products that have labels in a non-English language.
  • apply pesticides directly to your body. This could make you very sick.
  • use rubbing alcohol, kerosene or gasoline. These chemicals may cause fires.
  • throw away your furniture. Beds and other furniture can be treated for bed bugs. Throwing away your furniture can spread the bugs and you have to buy new furniture.
  • Do not store things under the bed. Storing stuff under the bed gives bed bugs many new places to hide. This makes it more difficult to get rid of bed bugs.
  • Do not move things from room to room. Moving your things from the room with bed bugs to another room in your house may spread the bed bugs.
  • wrap items in black plastic and place in the sun. It will not get hot enough to kill all the bugs.
