    WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

    Bed bugs are very small but visible to the naked eye, with adults measuring up to 7mm in length. These insects lay dormant for most of the day but become active to feed which usually occurs at night. When unfed, they are pale yellow or brownish in colour, but after a full blood meal, they take a darker uniform ‘mahogany’ brown colour. Identifying recent signs of bed bugs include:

    SPECKS OF BLOOD

    CLUSTERS OF EGGS

    HUSK SHELLS

    LIVE BED BUGS

    FAECAL SPOTTING

    BUG BITES

    If you spot any of the signs, contact a professional pest solutions service as soon as possible.

    WHERE DO BED BUGS HIDE?

    Without stating the obvious, they are most found in and around beds. But it’s the soft furnishing material that they are most attracted to, so chairs, sofas, cushions, rugs, and carpets are also hot spots for bed bug infestations.

    Hospitality businesses and transportation are at the highest risk of bed bug infestations, due to the volume of traffic coming in and out on a daily basis. Hotels and B&B’s are in particular.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO

    Professional pest solution services are realistically your best option to ensure complete eradication of a bed bug infestation. Due to their rapid reproduction and lifecycle, if even one adult bed bug survives you may find yourself back at square one.

    However, in addition to professional treatment, there are proactive measures you can take to keep the bed bugs at bay:

    • Monitor rooms regularly, looking out for early signs on infestations.
    • Clean laundry on at least a 60°C wash – this destroys eggs, nymphs, and adults.
    • Use Protect a Bed mattress covers – these can be obtained through Rokill.
    • Vacuuming and sealing of cracks and crevices.
    • Isolate rooms following initial identification of bed bugs.
    • Avoid removing infested furniture yourself, if not carried out correctly you risk infesting additional rooms and hallways.
