Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small, flat insects that feed solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep. Bed bugs are reddish-brown in color, wingless, range from 1mm to 7mm .  They are attracted to body heat and the carbon dioxide in expired air, which is how they find their host. To obtain a blood meal the bed bug pierces the skin of the host and injects saliva. This saliva has an anticoagulant property which makes the blood flow more easily. Bed bugs ingest their meal rapidly only taking 5-10 minutes to engorge themselves.the bites are in groups in a line or look like a rash  then its most likely Bedbugs, unlike Fleas and Mosquito's they are not often seen as they do not like the light.

Many people pick up bed bugs in their luggage when they’re travelling or stay at accomodation which has an infestation. You can also bring them into your home in second-hand furniture, bedding or clothing.

There are many products available on the market to allow a DIYer to attempt this job. but from our experience you would be wasting your money,these insects are the most difficult infestation you can get, just using off the shelf pesticide is extremely unlikely to solve the problem, the only way is to use a company that specialize in Bedbugs. We use a special mix of products that not only kill the Bedbugs but prevent any eggs that hatch from breeding breaking the life cycle.
