Bye Bye Bed Bugs – Natural Remedy

The resurgence of bed bug infestations is a world-wide issue most likely due to an increase in high density living, increased use of second hand items, increase in international travel, reduction in use of very strong broad spectrum pesticides and the ability of bed bugs to build resistance to pesticides.

The Toronto Star Reports:

“Bed bugs Toronto has been reported in the local press with reports of bed bugs in over 40 locations.   The problem was confirmed by the Toronto Public Health Department.  In response, the department launched the Bed Bug Project as the first step in fighting this problem.

Bed bugs can only be spread by people who carry them in luggage or used furniture from location to location.  The bed bugs then drop wherever the person visits, such as a friend's apartment or a hotel room.  Bed bugs have nothing to do with clutter or upkeep of a home.”

The information below courtesy of Wikipedia.

Bedbugs (or bed bugs) are small, elusive, parasitic insects of the family Cimicidae. Bed bugs may have originated in the Middle East, in caves inhabited by bats and humans The term usually refers to species that feed preferentially on human blood; all insects in this family live by feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. The name 'bedbug' is derived from the insect's preferred habitat of infesting houses and especially beds or other common areas where people may sleep. Bedbugs, though not strictly nocturnal, are mainly active at night and are capable of feeding unnoticed on their hosts.

Bedbugs have been known by a variety of names including wall louse, mahogany flat, crimson rambler, heavy dragoon, chinche and redcoat.

Adults grow to 4–5 mm in length and 1.5–3 mm wide. Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color and become browner as they moult and reach maturity.

Bedbugs use pheromones and kairomones to communicate regarding nesting locations, attacks, and reproduction. The life span of bedbugs varies by species and is also dependent on feeding. Bedbugs can survive a wide range of temperatures and atmospheric compositions. Below 16.1 °C (61.0 °F), adults enter semi-hibernation and can survive longer.[6] Bedbugs can survive for at least five days at –10 °C (14.0 °F) but will die after 15 minutes of exposure to –32 °C (–26 °F). They show high desiccation tolerance, surviving low humidity and a 35–40 °C range even with loss of one-third of body weight; earlier life stages are more susceptible to drying out than later ones. The thermal death point for C. lectularius is high: 45 °C (113 °F), and all stages of life are killed by 7 minutes of exposure to 46 °C (115 °F).

Bedbugs are obligatory hematophagous (bloodsucking) insects. Most species only feed on humans when other prey are unavailable. Bedbugs are attracted to their hosts primarily by carbon dioxide, secondarily by warmth, and also by certain chemicals.

With the widespread use of DDT in the 1940s and 1950s, bedbugs mostly disappeared from the developed world in the mid-20th century, though infestations remained common in many other parts of the world. Rebounding populations since about 1995 present a challenge because of developed resistance to various pesticides including DDT, and organophosphates. DDT was seen to make bedbugs more active in studies done in Africa.

Bedbugs would seem to have all the prerequisites for passing diseases from one host to another, and at least twenty-seven known pathogens (some estimates are as high as forty-one) are capable of living inside a bedbug or on its mouthparts, yet there are no known cases of such transmission. Extensive laboratory testing indicates that bedbugs are unlikely to pass disease from one person to another.

The salivary fluid injected by bedbugs can cause skin to become irritated and inflamed, although individuals can differ in their sensitivity. A few cases of bullous eruptions have been reported Anaphylactoid reactions from the injection of serum and other nonspecific proteins are observed and the saliva of the bedbugs may cause anaphylactic shock, though rarely. In rare cases of intense and neglected infestation, sustained feeding by bedbugs may lead to anemia. Secondary bacterial infections(i.e., infections from scratching itchy skin too much) are possible. Systemic poisoning may occur if the bites are numerous.

The World Health Organization reported in 2008 that bedbugs may cause bronchial asthma through the release of airborne allergens and that numerous bedbug bites may cause victims to become more susceptible to other diseases, as well as causing "general malaise".

Natural Remedy for Bed Bugs

WARNING:  ONLY CERTIFIED THERAPEUTIC GRADE “A” ESSENTIAL OILS WILL HAVE ANY IMPACT ON BED BUGS. YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS ARE THE ONLY GRADE “A” OILS AVAILABLE IN THE NORTH AMERICAN MARKETPLACE.

The following information comes from Janet McBride:

Since the recent outbreak of bed bug infestation, many remedies have been tried with little to no success of destroying the eggs. Now, the bed bugs are escalating because of global travel; the increase of homeless and underground communities; the popularity of "flea" markets and 2nd-hand merchandise; and worst of all, the bed bugs have become Super Bugs in that they have mutated from the DDT! The escalation of bed bugs is alarming and people should be aware of the problem, how difficult it is to be rid of them, yet not be too discouraged, because there are natural, safe, chemical free ways to have those bed bugs be gone.

If you’re traveling or you’ve just recently purchased some used furniture, it’s a good idea to do an inspection for any mature bed bugs.  Bed bugs tend to be found in dwellings that are frequently used, like motels, hotels, apartments, dorms, care facilities, and most especially used furniture.

If you think you’re being bitten, it’s best to do a search of your home for these pests.  Bedding, clothes hampers, throw rugs, pillows and furniture are probably the first places you’ll want to search for bed bugs.

Vacuuming the mattress, using the “Bed Bug Spray” mentioned below, and applying a seal-able cover over the mattress should be sufficient.  Meanwhile, all clothes, linens, and bedding should be washed in HOT water, and the surrounding area vacuumed thoroughly.

Make sure that you dry the sheets and clothes in the dryer and not on a clothes line, as it is the long time in the dryer, not the washing machine, that will really ensure the bed bugs are dead.

Essential oil lovers prefer the Eco-friendly approach, and research shows that tree oils work best against parasites and menacing insects. Gary Young, founder of Young Living touts the praises of Palo Santo oil as the first choice for insect repellent. Palo Santo comes from an Ecuadoran tree which develops a resin to protect against infestation and it is from that resin that Young Living distills the Palo Santo oil.

Eucalyptus has been used historically for bed bugs, and Eucalyptus Blue is the first anti-viral Eucalyptus Oil. Native American Indians relied on pine needles and Cedarwood chips in their mattresses to ward off ticks and fleas.

Young Living Essential Oils are the essential oils that are being recommended for the following suggestions, as these essential oils are high quality therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Spray on Bed Between Linen Changes: Thieves Spray

Palo Santo Oil: Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as frankincense, although it is found in South America rather than the Middle East. Like frankincense, Palo Santo is known as a spiritual oil, traditionally used by the Incas to purify and cleanse the spirit from negative energies. Even its Spanish name reflects how highly this oil is regarded: Palo Santo means “holy wood” or “sacred wood.” The resin forms only after the tree is down for 5 years, and this resin from which the oil is extracted, protects the tree from various parasites.*

Eucalyptus Blue Oil: Eucalyptus Blue has a fresh, invigorating aroma that supports normal breathing and soothes tense muscles. This essential oil is grown and harvested in Ecuador. This is the first form of Eucalyptus that is also anti-viral. This essential oil contains high levels of the powerful constituents eucalyptol and alpha-pinene, and follows in the same tradition as a repellent to insects.*





Cedarwood Oil
: Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage, and has long been used as a beneficial ingredient in cosmetic preparations for oily skin.*




Purification® Oil Blend
: Purification® is a powerful blend of Therapeutic Grade A Melaleuca (Tea Tree oil); Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Lavandin and Myrtle essential oils. Purification® can be used directly on the skin to cleanse and soothe insect bites, cuts, and scrapes. When diffused, it helps to purify and cleanse the air from environmental impurities including cigarette smoke and other disagreeable odors.*


Thieves Household Cleaner
: Experience the wonder of Thieves® Household Cleaner, as tough stains and problem areas in your home become simple and easy to clean without using harsh or abrasive chemicals. Thieves Essential Oil is legendary as was proven at Weber State University to exhibit a kill rate of 99.96% against all airborne bacteria including MRSA, Staph, Strep, e-Coli and Toxic Black Mold. While bacteria can be dangerous, some industrial cleaners on the market pose an even larger threat to your health. Thieves Household Cleaner is a safe all-purpose “green” concentrate that can be used in every room in your home, without the harsh chemicals. Dilution ratios are listed on the label for your convenience.

Having to deal with elimination of bed bugs can be a trying experience and if you are dealing with a large infestation, you may have to call in professionals.  I hope that anyone reading this article will have success in getting rid of bed bugs, using natural ways, rather than chemicals that could be harmful to be around.  Best of luck to you, and here’s to success in having a bed bug free environment.  And remember if you are traveling to take along the Bed Bug Spray and spray down the bed and bedding.  Sure as heck won’t hurt and hopefully you will never have to deal with bed bugs.
