Preventing Bed Bug Infestations in Hamilton

The best way to control bed bugs is to prevent them from entering your home.

Here’s how:

  • Inspect second hand furniture, beds, and couches for signs of bed bug infestation before bringing them home.
  • Enclose mattresses and box springs in covers labeled “allergen rated,” “for dust mites,” or “for bed bugs.” Periodically check for rips or openings and tape these up.
  • Reduce clutter in your home to reduce hiding places for bed bugs.
    • Repair cracks in plaster, repair or remove any loose wallpaper, and tighten light switch covers.
    • Apply caulk to seal crevices and joints in baseboards and gaps on shelves or cabinets.
