We specialise in bed bug control & removal

Bedbugs are found across the world. They are often associated with, hotels, hostels and poorer properties in large towns, although they can occur in places such as cinemas and public transport. 

Information

Control of bedbugs can be very difficult due to their ability to hide in areas and items all over an affected room or property. A thorough survey of affected property will be required, once it is established bedbugs are present a treatment with powerful residual insecticide, dusts and sprays will be required to all affected areas including electrical sockets, bed frames etc. Partial dismantling of some furniture especially bed frames will be required. This can take several hours.

Appearance

  • Adult bedbugs are nocturnal parasites around 6mm long with a brown flattened body that is oval in shape when they have not recently fed. This allows them to hide in large numbers in tiny crevices.
  • Small black dots (which look like ink dots) found on areas used by bedbugs are droppings

Control

  • Where possible no items should be moved into other rooms, bedding and other items should be treated with a high heat wash and tumble dry to kill any eggs or bedbugs present.
  • Persistent populations may require a further treatment.

Life Cycle

  • Adult female bedbugs lay around 4-5 white eggs per day which are glued to harbourage. Often in cracks in wallpaper, along seams of mattresses and headboards. The eggs only hatch in temperatures above 13 degrees C.
  • Following hatching the nymphs will go through 5 moulds over a period of several weeks-months depending on conditions and available food.
  • They can survive low temperatures and go long periods without feeding, a year is very possible.
