About bedbugs

Bedbugs (Cimex lecturalius) are small blood-sucking insects. Fortunately they do not transmit human diseases and therefore pose no immediate danger. However, they do pierce the skin and therefore cause itchy bumps (similar to mosquito bites) and skin reactions. For this reason, it is best to deal with your bedbug problem as soon as possible.

Bedbugs are very small, approximately 5mm as an adult but still visible to the naked eye. You should be able to distinguish them by their oval shape and reddish-brown body. They tend to live in groups where females can lay up to 500 eggs just over a two-month period. These eggs are extremely small and hatch between 6 – 17 days. Nymphs (young bedbugs) require blood to survive and grow. Once they are adults they are much hardier and can go up to a year without feeding.

How to spot them

The most common way people become aware they have bedbugs is due to an unexplained skin rash but not everyone develops this. Other identifying techniques are looking for black spots (bedbug faeces), mottled shells (from shedding) or blood spots on the mattress.

Bedbugs come out at night and are often found in small cracks and crevices in around your mattress/bed. However, they can travel quite a distance from their daytime location to reach you, attracted to you by your body heat and carbon dioxide. Hence, we treat your whole room and other possible areas in the house, not just your bed.

The Treatment

Generally a two phase treatment is required to control and eliminate the EXISTING infestation. Providing our recommendations for preparation are followed, this work is GUARANTEED.

FAQ's

- Where have they come from?

Bedbugs are not attracted to dirt. Bedbugs can occur even in the cleanest of homes. They are often transported in from luggage, clothing or furniture.

- Is there an epidemic in the UK?

The number of bed bug infestations in the UK and internationally, has increased very substantially over the last decade.

- What will happen if I ignore the bed bugs?

The bed bugs will not go away by themselves. Numbers will gradually increase, and the problem will get worse and spread.
