Bedbugs

Bed bugs are becoming an increasingly important problem in this country. Bedbugs spread very quickly and easily and are difficult to treat. This has caused an upsurge in the number of bedbug outbreaks.


Identifying Bedbugs

Adult bedbugs are 5mm long. They are usually found in bedrooms but hide in cracks and crevices during the day. Before feeding they are a flattened oval shape and light brown, but become rounder and darker after feeding. They are nocturnal and attracted to both the warmth of our bodies and the carbon dioxide in our breath. The most common shelters for bedbugs are in the seams of mattresses, in crevices in the bed frame, behind furniture surrounding the bed (especially the headboard) or where the wall meets the floor.


An established infestation will also be associated with an unpleasant scent secreted by bed bugs – hence the need for bed bug control services.
