Get rid of bed bugs quickly and effectively

bed bug treatmentBed bug infestations need professional pest control in order to eliminate their full cycle – eggs to adults — as bed bugs can remain dormant for up to a year. 

We are experts in bed bug identification and control, and can remove bed bugs from your home or business property using a very thorough professional treatment.

How do bed bugs cause a problem?

Bed bugs are usually found in bedside-furniture, door-casings, under window sills, pictures and posters, under peeling wallpaper, in cracks and crevices in floorboards or skirting boards, in the seams of curtains and in any other similar places.

Adult bed bugs are about 4-5mm long, wingless and normally a mahogany brown colour. Bed bugs can be a substantial nuisance to humans through their blood-feeding habit. They will feed on humans throughout the night when we are sleeping. If you have a high infestation there could be a risk of anaemia being suffered by the human hosts, although this is rare. However, when bitten by a bed bug it can cause itching which could progress onto a secondary infection. Humans are not the only hosts that can be attacked by bed bug. Bats, chickens and other domesticated animals are also at risk.

How can you tell if you have a bed bug problem?

Bed bug infestations can be hard to detect. Bed bug eggs are tiny (around 1mm) and are normally laid in hidden areas. Bed bugs are often detected when they bite humans — appearing as red, raised humps on exposed skin such as the arms, face, neck or lower legs.

Always take action as soon as you believe you have these insects in your property.
