Professional & discreet bed bug services with unbranded vehicles, uniforms and equipment.
Our treatments are designed to kill Bed Bugs at all stages in the insects’ life cycle, including eggs which are unaffected by chemicals alone. That’s why we use a powerful Heat Treatment and Spray process combination.
It’s an industry proven technique to remove Bed Bugs, and is also proven to eliminate other pests such as Cockroaches, Woodworm, Moths and Fleas.
How To Kill Your Bed Bugs
Using our industry leading equipment, the infested room(s) are fully heated to 50 degrees centigrade (including all of your contents). We then use large wind generating fans to blow the heat around the room to ensure that the heat has penetrated all areas, including inside cupboards and under beds and mattresses. Once the heat process has been completed, we then spray it with a chemical treatment. After 14 days we return for a follow up visit, and complete another spray treatment.
Why We Use Both Heat and Spray Treatments
The Achilles heel of Bed Bugs is heat. Once exposed to temperatures of 50 degrees centigrade, all Bed Bugs overheat and die very rapidly.
This method is much more effective than chemicals alone, as spray treatments that are available to the general public do not have the potent active ingredients that qualified technicians are able to use.
How Do I Know I Have Bed Bugs?
The most common issue is with bite reactions. Bites can often be seen on exposed areas of skin whilst sleeping, such as the arms, face and neck. You may also see spots of blood on your bedding from the bites, or from squashing the bed bugs as you move in the night. Other than that, Bed Bugs are generally very difficult to see. That being said, we do have a few tips for finding them…
Where Do I Look For Bed Bugs?
Carefully examine areas beneath fitted sheets, along the edges of mattress piping, and if no evidence seen here, remove the mattress and continue inspecting the base. Look closely at the four corners of the bed, and any plastic corner guards, as well as the dust cover which is stapled to the bottom of your duvan. If your bed base is wooden slatted, then remove the slats and inspect inside the plastic cups.
Still no luck? Try your headboards, bedside cabinets, carpet edges and skirting boards.
