Fact: bed bugs are no fun. They crawl up the mattress, on your couch, other cushioned pieces, or worse—on your skin, too. If you see one, chances are, they are already everywhere.

Before you ring an exterminator, you should know that these pests have a strong tolerance for pesticides, especially commercial grade sprays. Fortunately, there are all-natural alternatives that are 100% effective like diatomaceous earth. DE is a highly potent, food-grade and organic powder that efficiently kills common household pests including adult bed bugs and their eggs in just a few hours.
