The South Coast’s Bed Bug Specialists
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, together. It’s an industry proven technique to remove Bed Bugs, and is also proven to eliminate other pests such as Moths, Cockroaches, Fleas and Woodworm.
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.

But don’t just take our word for it… Our testimonials from our happy customers tell you everything you need to know.
Hugh (the Bed Bug Doctor) was great. We had tried everything and were unable to get rid of our bed bugs. Hugh was prompt and efficient. I have been bed bug free for a few months now and very happy now that they have gone.Charlie
Had the unfortunate experience of getting an infestation from a neighbour's house recently. One call to Hugh and he came out the next day to clear both houses. Nothing was too much bother for him and he answered any queries swiftly and professionally and his aftercare is second to none. 100% recommended.James
I cannot thank Hugh enough for his support during this highly stressful time. He was easily contactable to answer the endless questions I had and extremely thorough. If I was unfortunate enough to get these horrendous creatures again, I wouldn’t hesitate to call him. Thank you!Claire
Excellent fast service and as promised i was able to sleep soundly since their visit. The heat treatment process was very effective and their return visit was also very professional. Hugh you were very helpful and eased my very high stress levels from the moment i contacted you. Thanks.Rachel
Hugh answered all of our questions and followed up the heat treatment with a further spraying. We were left completely reassured that the problem was gone for good.Keith
