Bed Bug Issues
Bed bugs are a rapidly growing problem in the UK both in residential and paid-for accommodation environments. They are expert hitch hikers and if you start getting bitten in your sleep soon after a trip away from home or in a new property, they could be the cause.
Bed bugs like to live alongside their blood meal. They have a flat profile and can harbour in the smallest of cracks and crevices between joints in the bed or bedroom furniture, or behind head boards. The seams of mattresses are another preferred harbourage point and bed bug mattress encasements should be considered as a strategy to cut down on bites quickly. Bed bugs emerge at night, reacting to changes in your carbon dioxide output when you are sleeping. They use their mouth parts to pierce the skin, injecting an anti-coagulant and anti-biotic all at once so they can readily feed on your blood without you feeling it. They normally feed for 5-15 minutes until they are full, which can result in them being three times their normal size.
Bed Bug Bites and Effects
There is no one typical reaction to bed bug bites. We have encountered properties with severe infestations, yet the inhabitants show no signs of bites. Others may experience a row of reddish bites and for others a true irritation. One of the most common and very real consequences of a bed bug infestation is psychological, causing occupants to be unable to go to sleep and (not that unusually) go through significant stress and trauma.
Bed Bug Identification
Bed bugs are often mistaken but are not difficult to identify. An adult bed bug is 4-5mm in length and easily visible to the human eye. They are six-legged and have two prominent antennae protruding from the head near to the eyes. They have five defined life stages with nymphs being small and often translucent. Eggs are about 1mm long, and white or yellowish in colour.
Bed Bug Signs
Because they hide so easily it can be very hard to find bed bugs. Nevertheless, after they have fed they are often too big to get into their hiding place and have to excrete to get back into a safe place. This deposits black spotting around their living area, which can be seen by the human eye. There are a variety of bed bug monitors available. We recommend the Cimexine Bug Drawer Monitor which has a quick-view window allowing you to check for bed bugs without having to risk coming into contact with them.
Bed Bug Treatment
Bed bugs are one of today’s problem pests because they are tricky to locate, and hard to kill. They are proficient in developing resistance to even professional strength insecticides and regrettably you are extremely unlikely to have any success tackling the problem yourself. We specialise in bed bug removal regularly independently test the insecticides available to pest controllers against bed bugs that we know have developed resistance to insecticides. We know which ones are the best and which ones attain only poor results. We recommend heat treatment for bed bugs when the outbreak is well established, including GUARANTEED BED BUG ERADICATION through our sister company Cimexine.
