Q. We noticed bedbugs about a week ago. Neither of us have bites, but I'll admit some kind of bugs are in the bed. What's a good pesticide for them?

A. Just because you do not see raised bite marks doesn't mean you are not being bitten by bedbugs. About a third of humans are insensitive to bedbug bites and show no skin reaction. That percentage increases in the elderly. No pesticides are available to homeowners that will effectively rid your home of bedbugs. Engage a pest control company. Everything in infested rooms needs to be cleaned, super-heated or treated. Bedbugs can even live in appliances and walls. You cannot do this by yourself; however, these are some steps you should take as soon as possible get rid of bedbugs:

  • Wash and dry all bed linens. A clothes dryer on medium kills bedbugs.
  • Have these bugs positively identified by sending the University of Maryland Home and Garden Information Center a photo, or by using a pest control company.
  • Invest in a specialized mattress cover that completely seals the mattress so bedbugs cannot live there. Get a good one that will not allow the bugs to enter around the zipper.
  • Once your beds are bedbug-free, place bedbug "pitfall" traps under each bed foot. Black is the best color to use.
