Bedbugs are the small, oval, wingless and brownish parasitic insects which feed on the blood of animals or humans. the bed bugs are said to move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings.

There are many unconventional treatments available which could help you get rid of bed bugs. Some of the effective ones are mentioned and described below:

Vacuum away the bed bugs:

Vacuum cleaner is a good way to prevent and kill bed bugs. It is suggested to vacuum all carpets, rugs, beds, and other upholstered furnishings so that the bed bugs hidden in any place should be killed off. However the treatment is not that much effective to kill all the bed bugs hidden. But it kills the bed bugs to some extent. This is because vacuum cleaner is unable to reach all the places where the bed bugs hide.

Spread Diatomaceous Earth:

Apply the above mentioned powder in the areas where you think that bed bugs may hide. This product is made up of ground, fossilized shells. The product therefore is also known as “fossil shell flour” or “bed bug dust.”
Once the bed bug passes on from the powder, they become dehydrated. Infected bugs then die within a short span of few hours.

Barrier of kidney bean leaves:

Spread some kidney bean plant leaves around your bed, couch and other areas where you think that bed bugs might hide. This old folklore remedy has come from eastern Europe. Kidney bean leaves contain the microscopic hairs that help trapping the bed bugs. Bed Bugs who try to escape or flee from there, loose their life.
Nowadays the scientists and researchers are working on the idea to create such a synthetic material which will mimic the fine hairs of the kidney bean plant and make it comfortable for the humans.

Take a dewormer:

Research reveals that a minimal dose of a prescription deworming agent popularly known as ivermectin helps killing 60 percent of bed bugs. It is an effective method to kill the bed bugs. Ivermectin is a safe drug, which is commonly used in deworming medications for both humans and animals. The bed bugs after biting you will die within few hours after the dewormer gets transmitted from your blood to them.
