BEDBUGS

DON'T LET THE BED BUGS BITE

This globetrotting pest has developed quite the skill for managing to get everywhere. Bored of just inhabiting unhygienic surroundings, bed bugs are prevalent due to a number of reasons, including increased travel, more people using second-hand furniture and suspected evolved immunity to various pesticides.

 

Bedbugs are often found in high-traffic areas or those with a higher population density, such as blocks of flats, hotels and student accommodation.

They're quite a scary pest when you look at the numbers: Female bedbugs lay 200-500 eggs in just two months. Both males and females feed on mammalian blood, with the female having a more frequent need to feed due to egg laying.

They can survive dormant for months without feeding, waiting for a host, and have shown signs of becoming insecticide resistant, leading to a larger call for Heat Treatments.

An effective removal strategy is required to eradicate this vermin from your property. 

TREATMENTS EMPLOYED

Heat treatment carefully raises the temperature in the affected areas of your property using large, purpose-built heaters. These are carefully monitored whilst the heat permeates all nooks and crannies, leaving bedbugs nowhere to hide.

Heat treatments are effective at all stages of bedbug development, ensuring eggs and nymphs are also destroyed.

INFESTATION IDENTIFICATION

You'll likely know if there are bedbugs nearby, you just have to find them

SHED SKINS

Bedbugs leave shed skins behind as they develop through the many stages of their life cycle.

Blood spots

Blood spots can be left behind in two ways: once you have been bitten, seepage will leave a small blood spot; and  

when these little creatures meet their end by being crushed. 

SMELL

Bedbug infestations produce a unique aroma, somewhat sweet but certainly not pleasant. Easily detected by dogs, even the human nose will pick up the scent of an established population.
