What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are tiny parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans. They get their name from their tendency to live in beds and feed from their hosts while they sleep. There are many varieties of bed bug, but the most common by far is cimex lectularius.
The bugs are rather distinctive: they can be as big as 7mm in length, though many are much smaller, and they have an oval shape. They are a reddish brown colour. Bed bugs are naturally flat, but after feeding they swell and become rounded.
Bed bugs go through five life stages before they mature. Each growth cycle requires at least one feed. The bugs can go several months without feeding, and they are extremely resilient creatures which can live in a wide range of atmospheres and climates. Females can each lay up to 200 eggs during their lifetime, so populations of bed bugs can increase to huge numbers.
Telltale signs of a bed bug infestation in Gravesend, Northfleet, DA11
One of the most common signs of a bed bug infestation is the appearance of bites. However, bites from bed bugs are hard to distinguish from other insect bites, and there are plenty of biting insects which can be encountered at any time and in any location. Ants, spiders, gnats and mosquitoes can all leave similar bite marks. Not all bed bug bites leave a mark, either.
Look out for other signs of infestation. Spotting the bugs themselves is a sure sign, but you may also notice the transparent casings of the insects, caused when they shed their skin, or the dark reddish-brown droppings of the bloodsucking creatures. If you suspect bed bugs are present, it is always best to call in the professionals.
Bed bug risks
These nighttime pests can have a range of nasty effects on humans. Bites from these blood sucking bugs can cause itchy lumps which are uncomfortable and even painful. Bug bites can also irritate the skin, and could cause rashes or blisters as part of an allergic reaction. There have also been reported cases of bed bugs emitting allergens that can aggravate asthma and similar breathing conditions.
From being an irritation to making you or your family unwell, bed bugs are a real nuisance and they need to be dealt with quickly. If you suspect that bed bugs may have invaded your home and if you need help in removing the critters, call the bed bug pest control specialists at Pest control Gravesend in Gravesend, Northfleet, DA11.
Discreet pest control specialists
Even if you do not have a severe reaction to the bites of the bugs, the disturbed sleep that itchy skin can cause will soon take its toll on you. Bed bug infestations can be distressing and also embarrassing for anyone who experiences them. However, there is nothing to be ashamed of. Bed bugs are not attracted to dirt, but to warm, dark places with ready access to a food source: i.e. a human being.
We offer a friendly, sympathetic and understanding bed bug pest control service in Gravesend, Northfleet, DA11. Our unmarked vans don’t give away why we are visiting, and we are extremely discreet about the methods we use to manage pests. Our bed bug eradication services are primarily required for private homes, but we also provide commercial pest control for residential homes and the hotel accommodation industry, as well as for landlords and letting agents or property managers.
Removing a bed bug infestation
The best course of action when faced with a bed bug infestation is to call in a specialist. You may be able to remove many of the bugs through stripping the affected bed and washing the linen at a high temperature, and thoroughly vacuuming the mattress and bed. In extreme cases of infestation and where your budget permits, you may even consider throwing the entire bed away to solve the problem.
However, bed bugs are capable of spreading quickly through a home, moving into all manner of furniture and upholstery, and they can travel some distance from their host while living comfortably. It is very difficult to ensure that all the bugs have been removed, and if you are not thorough enough then the colony could continue to thrive somewhere in your home, eventually returning to the bed.
By letting our professionals treat your home or commercial premises for bed bugs, you can have confidence that we have taken every possible measure to remove the offending creatures. We will seek out every corner and crevice that the insects might hide in, and ensure that all life stages of the colony are completely eradicated.
