Step 1: Use bedbug interceptors.
This simple, inexpensive device helps isolate your bed from new bedbugs, and keeps bedbugs from spreading to other parts of the house.
Step 2: Use a BugLock system on your bed
Bed bugs trapped inside will starve to death, and new bed bugs cannot move in.
Step 3: Launder all bedding
Wash and dry all bed fabrics on high heat for at least 40 minutes.
Step 4: Apply CimeXa
Cimexa (Amorphous silica gel) is a desiccant, or a non-poison treatment that kills bugs by adhering to their exoskeleton and dehydrating them. ASGs are fatal to bed bugs but not harmful to humans when applied in accordance with the manufacturers instructions.
Step 5: Steam clean anything that cannot be laundered
This is the most inexpensive option and is effective at treating fabrics or materials that cannot be laundered.
Step 6: Vacuum all rugs
Vacuum up a small quantity of CiMexa to ensure all captured insects die within the vacuum. Empty after cleaning.
