How to get rid of bed bed bugs?

What makes bed bug control problematic is the fact that they are difficult to find, they can survive for more 12 months without feeding and can multiply quickly. While there are many bed bug control products available online, without the knowledge and hands on experience DIY efforts often are futile. Most likely, you’ll succeed with killing all the bed bugs you can see, leaving behind these ones well hidden to reproduce and come back again.

If you suspect you have bedbugs the most effective way to get rid of them is to call a pest control expert for a consultation. We can book an inspection to find out if we can find even the smallest presence of bed bugs. For more then 28 years we have helped Sydney residential and commercial premises to get rid of these unwanted visitors. Call us today for a free quote and advice.

Here are a few handy tips if you preface to do it yourself. Wash or dry clean clothing and other items regularly on a high heat cycle. Store clothing in sealed bags and keep items off the floor. Move beds away from the wall to stop bugs from climbing onto the bed.

You can purchase bed bug interceptors at hardware stores. These cups fit around the legs of the bed and prevent bugs climbing onto the bed. Check luggage carefully before leaving, to avoid taking pests home with you.

Most people get bed bugs from travel. Someone that has bed bugs stays at a hotel or motel. Then a new traveller stays at the same hotel, and the bed bugs hitch a ride on their clothes or in their suitcase. Once they get to a new home they start to spread and breed.

Contrary to popular belief, you are just as likely to get bed bugs at a 5 star hotel as you are at the cheapest of inns. Cleanliness has little to do with the spread of bed bugs.

But travel is also not the only way to get bed bugs. You can also get them from:

  • Next Door Neighbours – If a bed bug infestation has grown too big for one home, some bed bugs may explore nearby homes in search of more space.
  • Work or Recreation – Bed bugs do not need beds to survive. It is possible for bed bugs to live and grow at work, in movie theatres, at schools, and more.
  • Friends’ Houses – All it takes is a few minutes at a location for a bed bug to crawl on your clothes. If you visit a friend’s house that has bed bugs, you may take some back with you.
  • Used Furniture – There is a reason that experts recommend you do not buy used mattresses. Bed bugs may still be hiding inside.
  • Other People – Finally, you can get bed bugs without leaving your house at all. If someone with bed bugs comes to visit, they may have brought a traveller with them.

If you’ve recently travelled, it may be possible to pinpoint exactly when you brought bedbugs into your home. But you may never know where the bed bugs came from.

As a bed bug treatment company in Sydney, the best way to find out if you have bed bugs is to give us a call for a quick consultation. We’ll look for the signs, see if we can find even the smallest presence of bed bugs, and schedule a rapid treatment.

You can also keep an eye out on your own. One of the key signs includes the breakfast, lunch, and dinner bites. Although the presence of bug bites doesn’t necessarily mean bed bugs. But bedbugs do tend to bite in semi-linear clusters. With a tendency to bite 3 times (though it could be more or less), we refer to this as “breakfast, lunch, and dinner” and it is a sign your bites may be bed bugs.

Other signs include:

•  Shed bed bug skins and shells in corners and headboards.
•  Tiny blood faecal pellets near the sleeping area.
•  Unexplained, sticky white eggs in crevices around the bed and wallpaper.

If you look in the right spot, you may also be able to locate the presence of a bed bug. If you can find even a single bed bug, you need a treatment for your whole home.

Can’t find any signs of bedbugs but still confident you have an infestation? Make sure you check the couch and the beds in other rooms as well.

The best way to prevent bed bugs is to be aware of them. Anywhere you go – especially when you travel – you should check the sheets, the baseboard, and all of the different crevices in the area for signs of bed bugs. If you have any unexplained bites, bring it up to the front staff and have them assess the room as well.

If you think you may have been exposed to bed bugs, place all of your clothes in a plastic bag. Inspect your suitcase flaps for bed bugs. When you get home, place those clothes in the dryer and dry on high for 30 minutes. Bed bugs die in high heat.

Unfortunately, most people do not know they brought home a bed bug until it is too late.

Where do you find Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are found live in crevices of the bed frames, bed heads, mattress seams, curtains, carpets, bed side tables and where you would spend a lot of time sitting down, such as lounges and armchairs. They live in close proximity to their host so it is easy to emerge from their hiding places to have a blood meal. This happens usually just before dawn. Being bitten at night, noticing tiny spots of blood on bed sheets and sighting apple seed like insects on your bed are the very first signs of a bed bug infestation. Bed bugs are not known to spread disease, their bites are painless, however some people may develop an allergic reaction, this can present as reddish, swollen hives and itchiness.
