8 Simple Home Remedies to Rid a Home of Bedbugs
Many people think they’re just bugs that bite, but bedbugs can ruin your life. While you can escape the outdoors from most pests, bedbugs actually live in your bedroom—a place that should be a tranquil comfort zone.

What’s even more alarming is that if even one bedbug gets in your home, it can lay hundreds of eggs in its lifetime. Soon you can have a bad bedbug infestation that’s going to ruin your life.

If you see one or two bedbugs in your home, now is the time to get started with natural remedies to get rid of them. Natural remedies are safe to use around your pets and family, but are harmful to the bugs.

Many people who live in apartment buildings may also do some preventatives even if they’ve never seen any bugs, as bedbugs don’t care whether you’re poor, middle class, or rich. They simply want to feed on your blood.

Here are ten of the best home remedies to get rid of pesky bedbugs.

1. Tea Tree Oil Spray

Studies have proven that tea tree oil makes an effective insecticide.

2. Lavender Essential Oil

This oil acts as a cytotoxin against the bed bugs. It also smells good and can freshen up a bedroom.

3. Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil is just as beneficial as lavender oil. It can also be mixed with lavender oil to make a room smell good.

4. Citronella

Citronella works as an excellent mosquito repellent but it also works well against bedbugs too. Its acidic properties will naturally kill the bugs, while the scent will repel them.

5. Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus is sourced from mighty evergreen trees. Eucalyptus oil works as an insect repellent, and naturally against nematodes and mites too.

6. Orange Oil

D-limonene is sourced from orange oil which is used as an insecticide. This is a nerve toxin that can quickly kill the bugs within minutes of contact.

7. Clove Oil

Like the other oils, clove oil also possesses insecticide properties and insect repellent properties. The clove oil has an acidic pH level.

8. Diatomaceous Earth

This is a non-toxic insecticide safe to use around pets and children. You can find it in the home and garden centres. It’s in crystallized powdered form but can shred bedbugs on contact.

Stop Bedbugs Now

The best way to use these natural oil remedies is to mix 10 ml of the oil with 50 ml of water and pout it into a small spray bottle. Shake the bottle well, then spray it around cracks, crevices, and furniture in your bedroom. You can use more than one oil at a time.

If you’re using the diatomaceous earth, sprinkle the powder under your bed, around furniture legs, on your bed frame, and anywhere you think the bugs may be hiding.

Keep up your bedbug remedies for as long as you see the bugs, then repeat once every two weeks just in case there are any stragglers.
