Bed Bug Treatment

If you think that you have bed bugs in your home or business and you need pest control in North London – specifically Haringey, Enfield, Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill

Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite

Is something bugging you? You are not alone with news headlines reporting an increase in bed bug infestations across the UK.

Bed bugs can be found anywhere, in any city around the world, in any location, from youth hostels to five-star hotels. North London is no exception, but do not get bugged out, we are here for all your bed bug treatment and prevention needs.

Bed bugs can be challenging to control because they carry a stigma, so sometimes people will avoid calling a professional straight away due to being embarrassed. Instead, they may try to treat using an amateur product, which could prolong the infestation and lead to it spiralling out of control.

Bed bugs are travel experts of the pest world, moving around looking for fine cuisine to sample (usually us).

About Bed Bugs

Bed bugs (Cimex Lectularius) are around 4 to 5mm long, red or brown in colour, oval in shape and do not have wings. Usually found in bedrooms, bed bugs feed on our blood through our skin.

They are also attracted to our body heat and carbon dioxide from when we breathe out. Their habit is to travel via clothes, luggage or furniture and easily move through properties using wall or floor cavities.

Bed bug bites cause red, irritating marks on our skin and some people can experience severe allergic reactions.

They can also cause sleep disturbance and damage to business reputations, especially for hotels and other accommodation providers.

We’re often asked by customers, how bed bugs have made it into their home or business. While there are conditions where bed bugs thrive, poverty can also be a factor in large infestations due to the inability to afford effective professional pest control.

They are more prevalent in densely populated areas or buildings, particularly in multi-occupancy buildings with rapid resident turnover, for example, hostels, hotels, holiday camps and blocks of flats.

While steps can be taken to reduce the likelihood of bed bugs hitching a ride into your property, it’s impossible to prevent a bed bug infestation as they are generally spread through bad luck.

Do You Need a Bed Bug Treatment?

If you notice dark or black stains on a bed mattress, linen or surrounding area, these could be bed bug excrement. Check out our dropping identification guide.

There may be an unpleasant sweet smell, small dark blood spots (‘faecal pellets’) or you may even see actual live bugs.

Although individual bed bug bites may not be very noticeable to begin with, they can continue to occur in rows along the skin as the insects travel along blood vessels to feed.

Bed Bug Prevention

After a relaxing family holiday, you do not want to get stressed out by the thought of bringing home uninvited bed bugs. These pesky pests can hitch a ride in your luggage or find their way into your hotel room or Air B & B accommodation. Fear not and contact us now to stop them dead in their tracks.

Some practical steps we recommend you take when booking your trip:

  • Read reviews and pay attention to recurring complaints about bed bugs.
  • Call the hotel/accommodation directly and ask about their history of bed bugs and their bed bug prevention measures.
  • Consider alternative accommodation, like with a family member or friends.

During your stay we would recommend you:

  • Inspecting the mattresses: Remove the sheet to check the corners for brown bugs with an oval shape, black spots and a musty smell.
  •  Inspecting the furniture: Check all the furniture around the bed, including the headboard, nightstands as well as wall pictures.
  • Keeping your luggage off the floor.

When returning home it is always good to :

  • Inspect your luggage before bringing it inside.
  • Place it in your bath and we can come out and give a steam treatment that not only kills the bed bugs, but also any possible bed bug eggs.
