Potential Harms from Bed Bugs
Bed bugs can cause a range of physical and emotional harm, including:
Bed bugs can cause itchy, red bites that can lead to skin irritation and secondary infections if scratched.
Some people may develop an allergic reaction to bed bug bites, which can cause more severe symptoms such as hives, blisters, or difficulty breathing.
Anxiety and Sleep Disturbances:
Bed bugs can cause significant anxiety and sleep disturbances, as people may be afraid to go to bed or stay asleep due to fear of being bitten.
Bed bugs can quickly infest a home, as they can hide in small crevices and hitchhike on clothing, luggage, or furniture. This can lead to the spread of infestations to other areas, as well as to friends or family members who visit the home.
Bed bug infestations can be costly to treat, as they may require the services of a professional pest control service and may lead to the disposal of infested furniture or other items.
If you suspect that you have a bed bug problem, it is important to contact a professional pest control service as soon as possible to prevent the spread of these pests and minimise harm to your health and home.
Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
Because of their size, bed bugs are often hard to see before they start leaving signs of their presence. Here are some things to look out for, especially around your bedroom like bed frames or your mattress or living rooms:
Blood spots caused by bed bugs are a common sign of infestation. These spots are typically small and reddish-brown in colour and can be found on sheets, mattresses, and other areas where bed bugs are known to hide. The spots are caused by bed bugs feeding on human blood and then being crushed or disturbed.
Dark spots caused by bed bugs are typically fecal matter left behind on surfaces such as sheets, mattresses, or walls. These spots may indicate a bed bug infestation and should be addressed immediately to prevent further spread. It’s essential to seek professional pest control services to eliminate the problem effectively.
Reddish stains on bedding or furniture could be a sign of bed bug activity. These stains are caused by bed bugs being crushed while feeding on blood. The stains are usually small and can be difficult to spot, but they are a clear indication of a bed bug infestation.
Long periods of itching
Long periods of itching caused by bed bugs can be extremely uncomfortable and distressing. Bed bug bites can lead to raised, red welts that can itch for several days or even weeks. Scratching the affected areas can cause further irritation and increase the risk of infection. It’s important to seek professional pest control to eliminate bed bug infestation and prevent future bites.
Bed bug infestation can also cause sudden health issues such as respiratory distress. Respiratory distress caused by an allergic reaction to bed bugs is a rare but potentially serious condition. Bed bug saliva and faeces can trigger an immune response that leads to symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing. Treatment typically involves avoiding exposure to bed bugs and using medication to manage symptoms.
Our Bed Bug Treatment Service
Bed bug infestations are challenging, if not impossible, to deal with without the help of professionals. This is due to the fact that they are extremely small, often invisible to the naked eye and are often revealed by other signs like bed bug bites or bed bug excrement. Bed bugs feed on human blood and as mentioned above, can cause skin irritation or even allergic reactions.
Bed bugs often find small cracks and openings around your home and tend to lay eggs in beds, under bed linen, bed sheets, in mattress seams, pillows, skirting boards and clothes. Which makes bed bug control even more involved and laborious.
Our bed bug prevention and eradication service covers all potential areas where a bed bug can be found, including both their eggs and the pests themselves.

What are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are oval-shaped, small parasitic insects, that are reddish-brown in colour. They are commonly found in human dwellings, including hotels, homes, and apartments. Bed bugs feed on human blood and are most active at night when their hosts are asleep. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed, and their eggs are about the size of a pinhead. Although bed bug bites can not transmit disease, they can cause numerous health issues, including allergic reactions, skin rashes and generally have a negative affect on quality of life and property value.
Bedbugs go through a gradual metamorphosis in three main stages: eggs, nymphs, and adults. After mating, female bedbugs lay tiny, white, oval-shaped eggs in crevices or cracks near their feeding source. Eggs hatch in 6-10 days, and nymphs moult five times before becoming adults, which can live for up to a year.
How many bed bugs treatments do I need?
The number of bed bug treatments needed will depend on the severity of the infestation, as well as the specific treatment methods used. In most cases, a single treatment may not be enough to completely eliminate a bed bug infestation, as some insects and bed bug eggs may survive initial treatment.
A typical bed bug treatment plan may involve multiple treatments spaced out over several weeks to ensure complete eradication of the infestation. The exact number of treatments needed will depend on the severity of the infestation, the extent of the treatment required, and the effectiveness of the initial treatment.
It is important to work with a professional pest control service to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for your specific situation. A pest control professional can assess the severity of the infestation and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs, which may include multiple treatments as well as follow-up inspections and monitoring to ensure that the infestation has been completely eradicated.
Can you see bed bugs with the naked eye?
Yes, bed bugs can be seen with the naked eye, although they are quite small and can be difficult to spot. Adult bed bugs are about the size and shape of an apple seed, with flat, oval-shaped bodies that are reddish-brown in colour. Young bed bugs, also called nymphs, are smaller and lighter in colour.
Bed bugs are typically most active at night and may hide during the day, making them difficult to spot. They often hide in crevices, such as the seams of mattresses, in box springs, or behind headboards, and can also be found in other furniture, baseboards, electrical outlets, and other hiding spots.
While bed bugs may be difficult to be spot, they will often leave behind small blood stains on bedding, dark fecal spots on surfaces, or shed skins that can be seen with the naked eye.
What can cause a bed bug infestation?
Bed bugs are usually introduced to a home via infested second hand furniture, luggage left in an infested room, or clothing that may be carrying the nuisance pest. These wingless insects have evolved to latch on to surfaces such as fabric, upholstery,
