How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs By Using Dry Ice
Of all things to find in your bed, bed bugs are probably the worst things. Not only are they an inconvenience but they also bite you while your sleeping, ruining your skin. There are several ways to get rid of the bed bugs whether it be a bug bomb or rubbing alcohol but unknown to most dry ice does well to get rid of the pests.
For this process to get rid of bed bugs involves dry ice and a plastic bag. By using these two items, you will be able to create your own fumigation system that will get rid of those vermin. This technique is effective to get bed bugs off of items around the bedroom they may have gotten onto whether it be on things that are hard to wash like toys, bedding, pillows and any other item or piece of furniture in your bedroom. While doing this process make sure that you handle the dry ice properly, so you don’t injure yourself. To make it easier to wield the dry ice make sure to wear a thick pair of gloves and some tongs to make it effortless to move the dry ice around.
Unlike the plastic bag method, this method is used more like a trap rather than fumigation. The components you’ll need is about three pounds of dry ice, a large plastic pet bowl, insulated cup, tape, fabric, and talcum powder. First, tape the fabric to the sides of the large pet bowl to give the bedbugs an exterior to climb on. Next, turn the bowl over and rub talcum powder on the inside of it, this is because the powder keeps the bugs from being able to escape. Then use the gloves to put the dry ice into the insulated cup and place it into the bowl. The gas emitting from the dry ice will attract the bugs, and once they land in the bowl, they won’t be able to get out.
