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. 

What are you waiting for? Try out this amazing hack with our helpful guide:  


What you need:

  • 1 cup of food-grade diatomaceous earth
  • steamer

How-to:

  • Gently sprinkle the powder in all the places where bed bugs gather. 
  • Wait for a few hours (or overnight) for the dead bugs to fall off the mattress. 
  • Steam your bed clean to disinfect it and prevent further infestation. Click here for a step-by-step guide.

RL Tip: You can stock up on diatomaceous earth by ordering it online! Check out Diatomaceous Earth Philippines for more details.
