One fine morning you wake up to find that you have tiny bite marks on your body, and then you realize that your home is infested with bed bugs! And, then you may think that your house is regularly cleaned, yet how they came to your home. Bed bugs are unwanted guests and can easily travel to your premises. Bed bugs can come from old furniture, hotel rooms via your suitcase and even you could carry them to your home from a theatre seat!
If infestation is serious, then the best way to get rid of a bed bugs is to call an exterminator. However, if you think it can be controlled by taking measures yourself, then you may try these home remedies:
Hot water can kill bed bugs
Wash all clothes, linens and other fabrics which you may think have been infested with hot water. Also, use a dryer to dry everythings as heat will ensure complete elimination of bed bugs.
After you have given heat treatment (washing and drying) to all your clothes and fabrics, follow up by vacuuming all areas of the infested area. This will remove bed bugs from each and every corner of the area. Loosen up all bugs and eggs by using brush. Clean out your vacuum thoroughly afterward and dispose of any vacuum bags outside of the house.

Spray vinegar: Use vinegar as a natural ingredient to get rid of and even ward against bed bugs. Vinegar is a strong acetic acid that can disrupt any insect's nervous system.
