Get Rid of Bed Bugs without a Spray
Bedbugs can grow to 1/4″ long. They live anywhere in the home. They can live in cracks in furniture or in any type of textile, including upholstered furniture. They are most common in beds, including the mattress, box springs, and bed frames.They hide during the day and feed on the blood of humans at night. Tens of millions of dollars are spent annually in New York City alone to deal with these pests.
A bedbug bite is painless and is generally not noticed at first. The bites may be mistaken for a rash of another cause. Small, flat, or raised bumps on the skin are the most common sign. Symptoms include redness, swelling, and itching. (We use pascalite for itching).
In addition to homes, bedbugs have been sucking the blood of victims in schools, movie theaters, hotels, hospitals and buses. They are hitchhikers, great hiders, and rapid breeders.
The bean leaf bedbug trap
It has been discovered that microscopic filaments on the bean leaf wrap around the feet of bedbugs, or even impale them, and prevent them from moving further, acting as a trap.
This remedy for bedbugs has been used for centuries by those in Bulgaria, Serbia and other Eastern European countries. They lay the leaves around the bed at night and as the bugs scurry across the floor to gain access to the victim, they end up “sticking” to the leaves. The leaves, in the traditional way of doing things, are then burned in the morning.
The usual behavior to kill insects is to use poison. However with the shocking comeback of these bugs in recent years across the world, it appears that bedbugs have developed a resistance to bedbug sprays. Try the bean leaf bedbug trap instead.
