Bedbugs are back! Contact VermEx today to request a free bedbug control quotation.
The spread of bedbugs is a growing problem on a global scale in our homes and hotels. This is thought to be due to an increase in global travel, plus the bugs’ resistance to certain pesticides. Bedbugs are a very irritating pest and an infestation can prove particularly difficult to eradicate! Lurking in crevices in mattresses and bed frames, they emerge at night to feed on the blood of their sleeping hosts, warm-blooded mammals such as humans and their pets. They like to stay close to their source of food, hence their love of our beds! If you’ve noticed bites appearing on your skin in the night, or tiny droplets of blood on your bedding or mattress covers, you probably have a bedbug problem.
There is no evidence that bedbugs spread disease, but bedbug bites can be distressing, cause secondary infection or irritate an allergy. An established contamination of bedbugs will create an unpleasant smell, caused by the bugs’ secretions, and will nearly always require the services of a pest control expert.
The most common treatments to eradicate bedbugs are:
- Setting of insect traps to determine level of infestation
- Thorough inspection
- Spray treatment or fogging with insecticide
- Environmentally-friendly heat treatment
- Deep cleaning.
