Hello, I'm Michael Piacenza with Advantage Pest Control in St. Petersburg, Florida. Well, bed bugs have become a nemesis. Recently, there was news that big name stores had to close in New York City because they were attacked by bed bugs. Everybody's going after bed bugs, they're trying to find them with bed bug sniffing dogs to try to isolate and take care of the problem before it spreads through a hotel. How do we do this naturally? Well, there's a lot of different approaches. There's a lot of people that utilize things like alcohol, and heat, and, you know, some of those can be used to a limited benefit, okay? The things that I like to use are boric acid mixed with botanical pesticides from a company called EcoSMART. Some of this stuff is so safe, that you can actually use it right on the mattress, okay? So, you want to take the sheets and the pillowcases off the bed, get those straight into the washing machine on a hot cycle. And then, go to work on that bed. Vacuum it very thoroughly, get up as much stuff as you can, okay? You're looking for those bed bugs right in the cracks and the crevices of the mattress. And then, you want to start dusting it down with this boric acid mixture, okay? Once you get off the bed, you can turn the heat up just a little bit. You can use permethrin dust. Now, there's permethrin liquids, and there's permethrin dust, and recent studies have shown that the dust is working much better, that they're actually building an immunity to the permethrin liquids, okay? So, that dust can be used in all the cracks and crevices around the bed. Around the bed frame, the head board, okay? All around the bottom. Around your box spring. Then, you want to hit your baseboards. The baseboards are another place that they like to hide. They're nocturnal, so they head down at night, and they'll go into those baseboards, anyplace that they can hide. I hope this has been helpful.
