It is not difficult to find bed bugs in the house, especially when it starts to get cold and you leave the windows open to ventilate the house.

Bedbugs in the house: why they enter

It is not difficult to find bed bugs in your home. These insects enter our homes especially when there are temperature changes. In fact, through doors or windows that we have left open to let the air in,  they sneak inside to take shelter. A question amplified especially if you live near a park, a garden or the countryside. Among the most valuable hiding places, bed bugs also choose our clothes hung to dry.

Bedbugs are not insects dangerous to our health. However, they could feed on plants. Plus, in flight they could become very annoying. Not to mention that if we were to unfortunately crush them, they would give off a  very annoying stench.

Fortunately, there is a method discovered by housewives that can permanently eliminate bedbugs from your home. We will describe it to you later and we are sure that once you try it you will never take it off.

How to keep them away

First, we need to identify if bedbugs are hiding in our home, tucked behind curtains or in clothes hung to dry. A precise check will allow us to avoid storing laundry with a few insects nestled inside. Sheets and curtains should be carefully beaten. The same check should also be carried out on vases and saucers, but we dare to say that a precise check should also be carried out on ceiling lights and chandeliers.

The first remedy to keep bedbugs away from laundry is to use perfumes and odors that may be unpleasant to them. For example, in the washing machine you can rinse with  white vinegar and a few drops of tea tree oil  . When bed bugs try to nest in our laundry, they will be deterred by the smell. This is the best way to keep brown bed bugs away from your freshly laundered clothes.

If, on the other hand, we wanted to avoid the entry of bedbugs into our homes, we could place them on the balcony or on the windowsill, near the entrance. Among the favorite plants is  basil  which can attract bed bugs and keep them out.
