Bed Bugs are quite simply a horrible pest to have in your home, very difficult to get rid of, resistant to some pesticides, and worst of all they are voracious blood-suckers. They often arrive with second-hand furniture or in suitcases, in things we buy from the car-boot sale or from infected hotel rooms or even cruise ships.
Tiny bed bugs can live in the smallest of spaces; the spines of books, cracks in the floorboards, the seams of your mattress, and often in the head-board or frame of your bed.
Once the bed bug eggs hatch they have to eat a blood meal between each of their multiple growth stages until adulthood and they leave a trail of blood and blacker faecal spots on both bedding and mattresses.
Treatment is by multiple treatments and methods. Spraying and fogging are the most common methods used by us. Treatment can be expensive and takes several weeks. It takes coordinated teamwork between the pest control company and the householder to achieve total eradication.
