Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are becoming a more common problem, especially in urban areas. They travel easily and can spread and multiply extremely quickly. Considered to be pest control’s biggest parasite, these small insects are around 4mm in size and red or brown in colour.

Bed bugs are easily hidden because they flatten themselves to appear thin and they feed on the blood of humans, most commonly at night. This can lead to itchy bites that can cause discomfort, inflammation, and risk of secondary infection.

You may have heard that bed bugs are hard to remove but Effective Pest Solutions can eliminate bed bugs quickly and safely, providing a localised treatment where possible. We understand that a bed bug infestation can be extremely distressing, so we will aim to get rid of them as swiftly as we can.

Do you have bed bugs?

We work with homeowners, landlords, property managers, hotels, and agents to remove bed bugs. The sooner the bed bug removal is dealt with the better, as the bugs can reproduce extremely quickly and one bug can lead to a colony of hundreds within a matter of days.

These insects latch onto, clothing, luggage, clothes, or shoes, and can be picked up anywhere. They can also survive between 12 to 16 months without blood, so often stay deep within an interior of a property. This is a problem for homeowners and businesses because as people travel for business or leisure they can inadvertently pick them up and deposit them in a new location.

Bed bugs are hard to identify, particularly in the early stages of an infestation. Evidence includes:

  • Bite marks on any exposed areas during sleep, that may be painless at first but later turn into itchy welts
  • Blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases
  • Dark spots of bed bug excrement on mattresses, bedding, and walls
  • Sightings of bugs that are tiny and colourless or red or brown after feeding
  • A strong and sweet odour like almonds that emits from the bugs’ scent glands

We recommend that if you suspect bed bugs to look around the bed, including the base, dust cover, mattress, and any fabric.

How we remove bed bugs

We recommend that you never attempt to treat a bed bug infestation alone. We can communicate everything you need to know before, during, and after any bed bug removal. Bed bug control can include heat treatments or insecticide chemical treatments depending on the infestation. Our exterminators will be able to explain the best methods to treat any infested area.

We start with a detailed survey and risk assessment to look at the extent of the issue and provide solutions tailored to your pest problem. We can then provide the pest treatment at a convenient time and will provide as many visits as required to solve the issue and provide you with peace of mind.
