Don’t let bed bugs feed on your children

My husband and I recently watched Animal Planet’s new show, INFESTED. It was one of those shows that you really don’t want to watch but you just can’t turn off. The episode that watched was Bedbugs, Rats and Scorpions.  It was all about these pests and how they drove people right out of their homes. I couldn’t sleep well at night after watching the Bed Bug problem one family faced. The bugs literally sucked the blood from their sleeping babies at night! It was such a problem that their whole home was infested to the point that they had to move.

I was recently introduced to a Green Bed Bug Spray. Any home or hotel can be a host to bed bugs, not just an unclean home. I never thought of the risk we each take when we stay in a hotel. Sure, I take off the bedspreads before my kids have a chance to touch them but I never worried about bed bugs.

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs or Cimex lectularius are small, wingless, nocturnal insects that live by feeding on the blood of humans & other warm-blooded hosts. Bed bugs live in furniture, bedding, hangers, and more. They can travel from room to room, apartment to apartment, from hotel to clothing, etc.


How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs or Prevent Getting Bed Bugs

You need to kill the bed bugs right where they live. Inspect all surfaces, furniture, and mattresses, including creases. Do this at home and at hotels. To get rid of the bed bugs, you need a product that will kill the bed bugs. To prevent getting bed bugs, you need to be careful in hotels and other places that may be home to these pests.

Stop Bugging Me! Bed Bug Spray

Stop Bugging Me! Bed Bug Spray is 100% naturally-derived, green bed bug killer that is 100% effective. It is non-flammable, bio-degradable, non-staining, and safe to use around kids and pets. In clinical tests, it killed 100% of the bed bugs within 15 minutes. 80% were killed in the first 2 minutes – that is quite effective!!

It comes in several sizes for home 12 oz and travel 3 oz. I received the 3 oz to review. After the INFESTED show, I checked all of our mattresses for signs of bed bugs – the bugs are the size of sesame seeds so they can be seen or brown smears on mattresses (blood smears). Thankfully, I didn’t find any bed bugs and I never want to!!

I plan to take the Bed Bug Spray with me the next time we stay at a hotel, as a precaution. I don’t want my kids to be a bed bugs’ nightly buffet and I don’t want to bring the blood suckers home with us! The Bed Bug spray has a botanical smell, mostly smells like cinnamon.

    What’s going to happen in 6 months? lol I’ll just be bringing my spray, keeping our clothing and luggage off the floor, and hope for the best!

    I also bought a handheld bedbug spray like Stop Bugging Me. However, bedbugs creep me out so much that i’ll be avoiding hotels for the next 6 months or so.

    OMG! I saw the same episode and was up paranoid. Itching like crazy. I thought it was just me. I couldn’t turn because I thought this might happen to me and the families that have to deal with this stuff I don’t know how they do it especially with what their families go through and the cost. Did you see the one where the lady and her sons had rats and the family that had scorpions in their new home?
