Pest Control for Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are one of the oldest pests around and generally cause problems to homes by infesting a number of items including:
• Bed frames
• Skirting boards
• Door frames
• Behind electrical wall sockets
• Behind wall posters
• Between books and magazines on shelves and in racks
People are generally the preferred host for the bed bug and they inject saliva as they feed and allergic reaction to this substance often causes slightly delayed swelling, itching and burning.
Possible signs of a bed bug problem:
1. Discovery of insect bites on your body
2. See the bug itself
3. Bed bug faecal matter (noticeable as dark stains)
4. Blood spotting found on bedding
5. Bed Bug skin
6. Eggs (small and quite hard to detect, they are pale and measure about the size of a pin head)
7. Sweet almond type smell
