Did you know having bed bugs in your home is not a reflection of your personal hygiene! Bed Bugs have no preference on where they live, from High End Hotels to Humble Back Packer Hostels and every where in between. They are probably the most well traveled insect specie with infestations being spread mainly by luggage and "pre-loved" furniture.
When in holiday mode most people walk into the accomodation and either throw their bags onto the bed or floor, over the next few days clothes end up on the ground as well. It sounds harmless but watch the video on this page and see how fast and agile Bed Bugs can be. Clothes on furniture or carpeted floors can be infected with Bed Bugs, to then be thrown into your luggage bag and brought home.
Older Bed Bugs can lay dorment for over a year before the need to find a blod host. This gives them the ability to forage through your home looking for a suitable food source. Normally found amongst bedding means the sleeping occupant will be the Bed Bugs breakfest, however if they roam from the bedroom they can find family pets to feed from.
Bed Bugs are one of the most difficult pests to effectively treat. For a successful treatment our Beg Bugs Southport Pest Controllers do a vary of modern techniques which collectively will destroy the infestation.
Where Do Bed Bugs Live?
Hidden around the frame of your bed, these biting insects come out to feed once you have gone to sleep. Once you settle down for the night and stop moving about they wait until they can feel the warmth of your body heat and come out to eat. Blood is needed to survive and for the females to produce eggs. The Bed Bug will pierce your skin using its needle like mouthpiece and draw enough blood in a few minutes to increase their body weight by five times. Producing its own glue the female bed bug will glue her eggs in the crevices of your bedding. The eggs have to be put out of harms way but close enough to be about to find a food source once they hatch. One of our Bed Bugs Southport technicians will be able to show you all the hiding spots these biting insects will hide in.

If bites do show they will generally be in a line showing where the skin has made contact with your bedding. Diagnosing Bed Bug bites can be tricky as they might not be signs for days. Some people will show no signs of being bitten and others may break out into itchy red welts. If you develop a rash after being bitten by suspected bed bugs we suggest you seek medical advice.

What If It Is Not Bed Bugs Biting Me?
We need to conduct an inspection first to identify that the biting insect is actually Bed Bugs. Seeing bite marks on the skin generally gets credited to fleas or bed bugs however can sometimes be some kind of mites or lice. If Bed Bugs or Fleas are not found but biting insects symptoms are present we can put down sticky traps to collect samples over the course of a week. Being microscopic insects, these samples are sent to an Entomologist for analysis. Once the results are gotten back we can do the correct treatment procedure to the biting insect that has actually been found.
