Top 10 Scents That Keep Bed Bugs Away

Have you ever experienced waking up in the middle of the night due to itchy bites? If so, you might have been a victim of bed bugs. The pest may be one of the reasons why your sleep is disrupted, as they feast on your blood for meals. Bed bugs are nocturnal—that’s why they attack you when you are sound asleep.

Pests like bed bugs are usually found on mattresses and beddings. They tend to hide in dark places to prevent them from getting caught and for them to easily target their host. Eliminating them is never an easy task due to their tiny size. If you want to get rid of them instantly, a professional exterminator in Mooresville, NC is all you need.


There are also ways you can make it possible to get rid of bed bugs through DIY methods and one of those is by using scents. There are smells which bed bugs hate and using it can help you resolve your worries quickly.

Let’s find what scents can help in keeping bed bugs away. Check these out!

1. Rubbing Alcohol

Bed bugs are hard to deal with, but you can repel them by using rubbing alcohol. They hate the smell of alcohol and using it is an effective solution to your problem. The rubbing alcohol can dry out bed bugs bodies, which can eventually lead to their death. Using this scent is good for your property because the odor that rubbing alcohol releases prevent the pest from laying eggs in your area. When they smell it, they will get out of your home to look for another place to give birth. By spraying the rubbing alcohol, almost half of the bed bug’s population can be eliminated.

If you have rubbing alcohol at home, you can not only use it to disinfect your body, but also utilize it to get rid of bed bugs. Directly applying it on bed bugs will surely kill them and will give you a good night sleep. When using alcohol, it should be done with care because the alcohol can cause fire hazards.
