The bed bugs are a type of insect which can cause severe damages which include the skin rashes and other allergicreactions on the skin. The bed bugs are one of the kinds of troublesome insects which are threats to the human race.

Bed bugs are very dangerous and challenging pests. It is very difficult to get rid of them once they infest the house or premises.

What are Bed Bugs? How are they harmful?

Bed bugs are wingless and flat bloodsucking insects. They are small in size, generally, less than 7mm in length having long antennas. Bed Bugs are parasites that feed on our blood, resulting in extreme itching which can give us sleepless nights. They also attack furniture, beds, mattresses etc. and damage them.

Their infestation begins generally in the bedrooms, spreading fast to other parts of the house. Having bedbugs in the house can be very risky for everyone especially children.

Female bed bugs can lay up to five eggs each day and up to 200 to 500 eggs in their lifetime. At normal room temperatures and sufficient blood to suck on, bed bugs have a life of almost 300 days. They are nocturnal insects and they harbour themselves in cracks and crevices of furniture and bed linen and mattresses.

How to identify a bed bug infestation?

Are you experiencing burning and itching on the skin and see raised, red welts on it, they can be marks of bed bug bites.

Characteristics of the Bed Bugs

The bed bugs are tough to distinguish. Therefore, you need to know the essential features to identify the bed bugs.

  • Generally, the bed bugs appear to be the size of an apple seed. The long and brown and oval shape of the body mainly comes at the size of the 5-7 mm long.
  • Elongated and the color of the bed bugs are generally comes in between the red and brown.
  • The bugs are smelly, and you may get the ‘musty-sweetish’ odor from the bugs.
  • The life cycle of the bed bugs usually revolves around the fifth stage of the nymph.

The Different Methods of controlling theBed Bugs

To the untrained eye, the bed bugs are complicated to trace at the different location of the house. In addition to that, you need to understand that the bed bugs can quickly multiply within six months of time. Therefore, early detection is crucial and most importantly, the detection at the first stage of the breeding life cycle can control the bed bugs. However, the pest control has taken some effective measurements to prevent the attack of the bed bugs.

The first and foremost stage of the bed bugs control is that assess the area with the pest control professionals. After the inspection, a proper infestation is required to control the bed bugs. The cleaning up the clutter and the anti-bed bug control chemical can help to prevent the attack of this insect.

Third and the most important thing is that to monitor the progress. In a nutshell, the bed bug control is not a daunting task if you hire a right pesticide company for your house.

Heat treatment against Bed Bugs

On the other hand, If the infestation is too severe, then we can resort to the so-called heat treatment (killing bed bugs with heat). Here is how it works:

  • The pest technician will carry out an initial inspection and prepare your property for the service.
  • The specialist will use an electric or diesel-fueled heater to raise the temperature of each room up to 56°C. This will kill bugs in all stages of development, regardless if they are in or out of sight.
  • Once the treatment is done and if the expert deems it necessary, he can return two weeks later to treat all recently infested areas with an insecticide spray to ensure best results.

Steam Treatment against Bed Bugs

The steam treatment is an effective eco-friendly alternative to the traditional bed bug control service. The difference comes from the fact that there are no pesticides used to perform the steam treatment service, only steamers and fabric detergents, applied on the furniture. The detergent is used to wash the faecal matter of the bed bugs and wash away their eggs.

The steam used in steam treatment is heated up to 180 °C which is more than enough to eliminate all stages of the bed bugs. The service is suitable for lighter infestations, where the affected areas are well established by the professional. It is cheaper, and less time-consuming than heat treatment, but not as effective for severe infestation. Although steam can aid bed bug removal, the most effective method of bed bug pest control is the Heat Treatment, when done by professionals. Before both services, your property will be inspected by a professional and he will aid you in your choice of action. The final decision is up to you.

However, bed bug steam control is a valuable option for many cases where the owner realised the problem earlier and took action on time. It is also important to mention that the steam treatment would be cheaper than heat treating your property. Rely on the professionalism of the pest technicians to aid you in choosing the best service for your case, as they have nothing else in mind than providing you with the most cost-effective and efficient service.

Frequently asked questions

A: If this is indeed the case, then we highly recommend for you to take advantage of our heat treatment. It eradicates up to 100% of the adult bed bugs and their eggs in about two hours.
A: When the exterminator arrives, leave the property for a few hours since the insecticides settle. Once the products have settled down, open all windows and doors for about 10 minutes and do not vacuum all treated surfaces for at least 5 days.
A: One of the simplest and most effective things you can do is to vacuum-clean the affected areas using a disposable dust bag. As soon as you are done cleaning, immediately throw that bag away.
A: Honestly, consider that mattress gone. It is best to just replace it with a new one. Just make sure to have a professional treatment before placing your new one to protect it from the insects.
A: The adult bed bugs will be affected almost immediately. On the other hand, there will be bed bugs who will hatch a week or two later from the eggs. That is why a secondary treatment will be done as well as part of the service.
A: The most likely scenario is that they were brought in through one of the inhabitants of the property who probably stayed at an infested place overnight. For example, bed bugs are known to “board” the luggage of travellers and are frequently encountered in hotel rooms.
