A professional look is required

High levels of hygiene, deep cleaning and the use of “street” bed bug spray products will help to kill some bed bugs. However professional treatment is often needed to successfully treat an infestation as it can be hard to get rid of bed bugs completely on your own.

Bed Bug Signs

Look for these signs of symptoms of a bed bug infestation:

  • Bites on body – Burning and itching Bed bug bite rash across a localized area in multiple straight lines.
  • Dead bed bugs – If bed bugs are present in our beds or bedrooms, some will be squashed when we go to sleep – whether they’re actually in the bed or under the mattress.
  • Dark/black stains – Blood stains on your sheets and pajamas from bed bug excreta.
  • Bed bug eggs – They are about the size and color of small grains of rice.
  • Sweet scent – Usually not present in the early stages of an infestation, in later stages bed bugs omit a strong, sweet odour; not too dissimilar to almonds.
  • Small dark spots – Small dark blood spots on bedding (faecal pellets).
  • Live insects – You may spot live crawling bed bugs.
  • Skin Shedding – Bed bugs shed their skin, exoskeleton or shells during their life cycle.

The Bedroom is normally the highly affected area because most bed bugs need easy access to a blood meal at night. They are also attracted to body heat and carbon dioxide from human breath.

How Do Bed Bugs Spread?

It has been proven beyond doubt that bed bugs are well adapted to travel through;

  • Second hand / vintage furniture
  • Visiting friends carrying them
  • Spending a night in a hotel with an infestation
  • Crawling on walls from neighbours

How to prevent a bed bug infestation

There are several things you can do to avoid a bed bug infestation in your home:

  • Carefully inspect anything that comes into your home for the first time such as second hand furniture, appliances or new clothing.
  • Inspect your bed thoroughly each time you change the bedding.
  • When you return from overnight trips, leave your suitcase in the garage or any other area away from the places you spend most of your time, then get them washed up.
  • It is also a good idea to check your luggage before entering your home.

Bedbugs FAQs

Bed bugs are usually around 5 mm in size and are reddish-brown in colour with flat, oval bodies.

No. Although they are usually found on mattresses and within bed frames, they can also be found behind loose wall paper, headboards and within other furnishings such as bedside tables, wardrobes, picture frames and electrical sockets! They feed on our blood at night, attracted to the heat, vibration and carbon dioxide, that we breathe as we are asleep.

Homes can become infested with bed bugs in a number of ways, but more often than not it is by luggage or clothing from recent travels. They can also be brought into a home through second hand furniture and in extreme infestation cases they can come from adjoining properties. When a tenant vacates or moves away from their infestation the next blood meal is only a 9″ brick wall away!

Bed bugs themselves do not transfer diseases but they can cause a great deal of discomfort and bacterial irritations to the skin following a bite. However bed bugs have been shown more recently to harbour viruses (such as Hepatitis B) which can be transferred back to humans through faecal deposits potentially entering the bloodstream in the process of scratching.

No.  Bed bugs typically feed every 5 to 10 days, spending up to ten minutes to take their blood meal. So if you are experiencing bites every night, there is a very good chance that you are living with quite a few of them!

The use of “street” bed bug spray products will help to kill some bed bugs. However professional treatment with the right combination of pesticides is often needed to successfully treat an infestation as it can be hard to get rid of bed bugs completely on your own.

Very fast indeed!  If conditions are favorable (suitable hosts and warm ambient temperature 30 degrees ), females can lay up to 12 eggs a day and up to 500 in a lifetime, which can be up to 18 months.  Each egg will hatch within 8-11 days a minimum 4-5 days producing tiny bed bugs called nymphs.  These nymphs go through five molts phases over a 5-8 week period, rapidly increasing in size during each phase, to reach adult bed bugs.

Adult bed bugs can go up to 6-8 months without feeding! No eggs will hatch if the temperature is above 37 degree or below 13 degree. Eggs that have not hatched within 3 months will die.

European code of practice recommend chemical insecticides they quote “non-chemical solutions are not currently capable of providing rapid, reliable control.”

The simple answer is yes, if you put insecticide that has been designed to kill insects in a property it will kill the bugs; it also follows that if advice from a trained technician is followed then the treatment will be successful. Bed bugs globally have been showing resistance to chemical treatments but by applying the latest chemical combinations, you will be successful.

This is very dependent on the initial infestation encountered. If you have a lot of bugs and the infestation has been mismanaged then you may require further treatments. This is not to say the process is not working but a more integrated pest management system would have to be adopted.

Can you treat and eliminate the bed bugs on your own?

Bed bugs are challenging pests to get rid of, since they hide so well and reproduce so quickly. In addition, the egg stage is resistant to many over-the-counter pesticide products that have bed bug control written on the label, yet the performance of these products under actual field conditions isn’t known.

That’s why you need a fumigation company with experience and the correct combination of effective pesticides to sort out the problem for good. However, if you need to use a pesticide, without seeking the help of a licensed fumigation company, you can buy from our Agrovet by calling 0734912982
