Diatomaceous earth is safe and effective way to control bed bugs- takes 7-17 days so not instant - (if you are dead set on sprinkling white powdery substances around your room might as well be one that is recommended for bed bugs)

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that baking soda is a successful home remedy for bed bugs. Baking soda actually breaks down when it comes into contact with water, so the idea that it can absorb the thick fluids found on a bed bug shell is quite questionable.
