Bed bugs are parasites that live on human blood. They are most commonly found in mattresses and box springs. If you have found bed bugs in your home, don’t worry. You can kill bed bugs with steam because they cannot live at temperatures above 110 F.
Pick up all trash and clutter from your bedroom. (This gives the bed bugs fewer places to hide.)
Wash and dry all bed linens and clothing. Store them in plastic bags and containers to prevent re infestation.
Vacuum the carpets, furniture, mattress, and box springs to get rid of dust and debris.
Fill the receptacle on the steam cleaner with the directed amount of water and cleaning solution, as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Slowly go over surfaces with the steam cleaner to sanitize the areas and kill bed bugs. Start from the top of the room and work downward. Begin by steam cleaning curtains and drapes. Work your way to the bed and other furniture.

Allow the steam cleaned surfaces to dry thoroughly.
Wrap the mattress, box springs, and any furniture in tear-resistant plastic coverings, if possible. Leave the plastic on for two weeks to ensure that any living organisms have had time to die.
Examine the bedding, furniture, and other bedroom fixtures carefully for bed bug feces, skins, or living bugs. If any are found, repeat the steam cleaning process.
Parents often bring their kids to the pediatrician for treatment of bites and stings.
Although the focus is usually on more well-known bites, such as ant bites, spider bites, bee stings, and even chiggers, bed bug bites are getting more attention lately.
Once limited to hotel and motel rooms, perhaps from international travelers, bed bugs are now a problem in many homes, dorm rooms, and apartments. In addition to the theory that bed bugs have been spreading because of an increase in international travel and immigration, many experts think that the fact that many dangerous pesticides were taken off the market has greatly contributed to the spread of bed bugs.

Whatever the cause, bed bugs are here and bed bug bites are something you should learn to recognize in case you have them in your home.
Fortunately, bed bugs don’t spread any contagious diseases.
It is a bit disgusting to think that bed bugs might come out and feed on your kids at night though, and since the bed bug bites are painless, you may not even know it.
