Bed Bug Pest Control Services
Based in West Bromwich, we provide professional bed bug pest control services across Birmingham, Sandwell, and Walsall.
Bed bugs are often associated with traveling to warmer climates and then transferring them back to the UK. Due to central heating and close human habitation the bugs thrive here.
Approximately 200 eggs can be laid in hidden areas, usually around beds. These develop into nymphs; they increase in size via 5 separate moults following each blood feed.
Bedbug control treatments will not be successful unless the technician understands the biology and behaviour of this insect. Time, thoroughness, knowledge, the correct product and application and help from the client is essential to control this hardy pest.
Bed bugs have to be treated differently from other bugs such as cockroaches. For example, sticky traps won’t work. There could be thousands of bed bugs in one room without any being caught on a sticky trap.
Bed bugs make blood feeds but do so in a way that you do not feel the bite. Therefore they can be difficult to detect. Adults may deposit eggs on a mattress but then move off, making them harder to control. They have no wings so they are dependent on people to carry them from one place to another, often on things they move around. For example, suit cases can take them from one hotel room to another. They can even be found in and carried on antique furniture.
