Identifying A Problem
Bed bugs are small crawling parasitic insects that are becoming a massive pest problem. Bed bugs are very easily spread but complicated to treat, resulting in a rapid growth in the number of outbreaks of bed bugs in the UK, USA and other countries.
Bed bugs can be a serious issue for businesses who have a constant flow of visitors to their premises. For example:
- Guest houses
- Entertainment venues
- Public transport
- Care homes
The key to beating the problem of bed bugs is to raise awareness of what beg bug signs to look for and to ensure that, once discovered, bed bugs are dealt with quickly and effectively by a professional pest controller.
The adult bed bug is a flat, oval insect 5mm long by about 3mm broad. It is a reddish brown in colour. Bed-bugs do not fly so they must crawl or be transported in clothing, luggage, books, furniture, in fact anything that provides them with harbourage.
Bed bugs feed on blood and they can survive for long periods of time without feeding. They are usually associated with poor, overcrowded and unhygienic conditions but can be transported to any premises. In domestic premises most infestations are found in the bedroom. Their hiding places will be close to where their host sleeps – in the bed frame, mattress, bedside furniture, skirting boards or wallpaper, in fact anywhere that affords a dark hiding place during the daylight hours for these nocturnal creatures.
Bed bugs’ habit of biting a person and feeding on their blood can cause severe irritation to some people. The very thought of being preyed upon by such creatures is often sufficient to encourage immediate action to control them. They are not, however, known to carry disease.
The female bed bug lays pearly white eggs approximately 1mm long, which are ‘glued’ into cracks and crevices in places such as bed frames, furniture and wallpaper. In fact, anywhere that provides dark harbourage during daylight. They will lay about 150 eggs which will hatch in 10 to 20 days and will reach adulthood in approximately nine weeks under reasonable conditions, but will be considerably longer if the temperature is low. The adults live for up to 18 months, usually feeding weekly, but can survive for over a year without blood.
Our Assessment, Treatment and Guarantee
Control of bed bugs is becoming an important part of pest control for many businesses.
