Hi i tried searching for them at the mattress seams but nothing. May i know did you find them at the top of the mattress or side? Around what time did you try to use the torch light? I read that they come out near to morning and i hope to wake up at the "correct" time so as to catch them. I hv been having bites but dont see any of their shit. It has been mentally and physically tiring to go through this.Hello everyone,
Just want to share my experience about Bed Bugs and how I managed to get rid of them from my room.
A couple of months ago, there was Bed Bug infestation in my room and I didn't realize it until I noticed red spots on my legs and black squashed spots on my bed sheet. Went online to check what it is and it was Bed Bugs. To reconfirm, in the middle of the night, I used a torchlight to shine on my bed sheet and I saw so many little Bed Bugs coming out. It was freaky.
I tried the DIY method by getting the common insecticide and bed bug spray that was oil based and smelly. It didn't help much and I didn't dare to use it much because of the smell and oil.
I went to SELFFIX and they introduced this product to me called Ant Ban which is a product of New Zealand. Though it says Ant Ban, this product is also meant to kill and repel all insects especially Bed Bug, Termites, Fleas, Ticks, etc. The best part of it that they told me was the product is odourless, colourless, greaseless and does not cause any stains. They also shared with me the Bed Bugs treatment for beds. They just told me to do the following steps:
1. Spray on the mattress, bed sheets, crevices of the wooden frames or metal frames.
2. Leave it to dry for 5 to 10 minutes.
3. You can continue to sleep with ease.
I didn't really believe it but I guess I have no choice but to try it out. They also told me that the repellent and killer effect of Ant Ban lasts for about 2 to 3 weeks.
I bought a few cans and tried it. After spraying it, I saw all the Bed Bugs crawling out from their hiding areas and they died. I was also amazed that there really wasn't any smell, oil, colour and there was no stains at all. I resprayed every once in 2 days and I had to make sure I get rid of the eggs.
Within 2 weeks, the Bed Bugs subsided and after that, I managed to get them all out of my house. I also found a couple of Bed Bugs that were dead and I didn't spray at that area. It is both a repellent and a killer and I guess the Bed Bugs could feel the presence of the chemical and died.
This product really saved my life and I feel it is very good and better than the other products out there because it is environmentally friendly and, if it comes into contact with the skin, it is also safe. I have a nephew that is only 2 years old that keeps crawling to my room that I sprayed with Ant Ban. He touched on those areas that was sprayed and there wasn't any skin allergy. This is a big plus point for this product.
I hope all of you can get rid of these Bed Bugs problem and I know it is a real ordeal and torture to have them.
I have uploaded the image of this product that I recommend for Bed Bugs problem. Try it and you will never regret getting it.
Hello, may I ask did you use one steamer only? I was afraid that the bugs might run to another corner while i steam one corner.Hi all,
I customized a bed frame from CXXXXS last year in march.
I saw bedbugs 2 months later. My hubby was kana biten by the bedbugs. Luckily my baby boy don't get it.
The bedbugs really made me crazy!!
Below were the "methods" I used for killing the bedbugs:
1. Karcher Steam Cleaner(Steam the bedframe and matress)
2. Iron(Iron all the bedsheets, pillow casings, mattress)
3. Potion Three Bedbug Pesticide from Homefix(Spray onto the bedframe, especially the corner, seams. Onto the walls.
4. DE powder(use paint brush to apply the powder on skirting, matress(seams), inside the bedrails(nylon's part)
For those who has bedrails, please check carefully! Bedbugs likes to hide in the bedrails especially the nylon's part there. Remove the nylon, pour the boiling water on it or throw away the bedrails if you find troublesome to do it.
I spents 3 days to kill the bedbugs. If you ever catch the bedbugs, please burn to die with lighter. The blood is actually with eggs so don't knead it to die on bed.
I didn't see any bedbugs until now....(touch wood)...
My brother and I are currently working to get rid of bed bugs at our mom flat for over a year. After getting rid , it comes back again, I believed that this is mainly due to the facts it a old estate which the designed is a problem
Here is our experience that I like to share.
1. For mattresses, we use plastics sheet to cover the it 2 metres long to prevent from getting bites. Plastics cover that are use for dinning table will do. Then put the bed sheet on top.
2. We use heat gun cost about S$ 60 -70 for heat up metal/wooden bed frame around the frame joints to kill the bugs (dont use hair dryer). We use the heat gun for the wall , under the standing fan, chair seams.
3. If not, you can use lighter fluids ( careful with this) - we spray lighter fluid over the metal frame around joint area. Heat kills beg bugs fast.
4. DE powder sprinkle around the edge of the walls. Do this after vacuuming the floor.
If possible buy CIMEXA from Amazon or Ebay ( note this needs NEA approval it not the item will stuck in custom). This supposed to be better than DE. I order from ebay but Singpost can't deliver it to Singapore.
5. Throw out unwanted items.
We are still doing it for our mom. Our mom is forgetful, she will move clothing and items from one room to another room. Well we learned a lot from doing this every couple of months.
