Yes, vinegar either kills or repels bed bugs. Vinegar is referred to as a contact killer since once sprayed on the bed bugs, it kills them.

The ability to kill the bed bugs is because of its strong acidic properties. The acidity of vinegar interferes with the normal functioning of the bed bug’s nervous system and that leads to its death. Vinegar is considered a very effective natural way of getting rid of bed bugs.
Can I get some vinegar out it in a  spray bottle and use it as a  pest control against bed bugs?
Yes, you can. Spraying vinegar directly on bed bugs can kill them because vinegar is a strong acetic acid that can disrupt an insect's nervous system. While this home remedy is safe and effective, it is not a standalone treatment, meaning you won't be able to eradicate a bed bug infestation with vinegar alone. Use vinegar as a natural ingredient to get rid of and even ward against bed bugs until you can come up with a long-lasting solution.
