What are the signs of a bedbug infestation?

The signs are usually when people complain of irritation and red lumps on their skin. Bedbugs are mainly active during the night. They are drawn to our warmth and exhaled carbon dioxide when we are asleep and then feed on our blood. The signs that you have bedbugs may be small black spots of excreta on mattresses. Adults may also be found in the joins in headboards and crevices in bedframes. They like to retreat during the day behind carpet gripper rods under the bed.

How we deal with bedbugs

Our first action is to carry out an inspection to determine the level of bedbug infestation and confirm that it is bedbugs that are causing the problem.

We then have two main methods of control:

  • Chemical – this will usually mean a course of three insecticidal treatments, together with recommendations for actions for you to carry out, such as laundering soft furnishings and bedding.
  • Bedbug Heat Treatment Service – using our specialist equipment the bedbugs can be eradicated in one visit without the use of any chemicals. More…
