Severe Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs are normally very difficult to identify and come across as they tend to hide away, coming out at night whilst we are sleeping to feed, however our Technician Dan had no problems identifying them within a property he recently treated.

As you can see the signs of activity are unmissable and the live bedbugs can be seen scurrying around the mattress and bed frame.

We normally advise having two treatments carried out however in this case the clients will need to have several to ensure complete eradication.

Good Night, Sleep tight, Don't let the Bed Bugs bite!

Did you know a bed bug can survive without feeding for almost a whole year. They thrive off human and animal blood and are primarily nocturnal pests, hiding away in cracks and crevices of beds, mattresses and other furniture once they have fed. Typical signs of infestations include bites to the back, stomach and sides. Small dark brown spotting on bedding and mattresses and in some heavy infestations the bugs themselves can be seen.

If left untreated the infestation can quickly multiply and can take longer to eradicate.

Here at Millennium Pest Control we can thoroughly treat the affected areas, spraying the insecticidal chemical around the bed frames, wardrobe crevices and bedside tables, we then require to complete a second treatment two weeks later to enable the treatment to have full effect.

Bed Bug Treatment Ipswich

Called to treat an outbreak of bedbugs in Ipswich we took this short video to show the bedbugs reacting to the chemical treament.

An inspection of the bed frame before spraying only highlighted one or two bedbugs but just 15 minutes after spraying over 100 were visible.

The chemical flushing agent aggrevates the bed bugs flushing them out of hiding spaces and killing them.

Bed Bug Treatments

Bed Bugs feed on blood and are most often found around the mattress or close to the bed. Commonly mistaken for mosquito bites, bed bug bites can often be found in lines on the host and can cause a painful and itchy reaction.

The short bed bug treatment video clip and pictures above were filmed by our pest control technician, Stephen Roberts, on a recent bed bug treatment carried out in a house in Cambridgeshire.

The first bed bug treatment has now been completed with a follow up appointment scheduled.

The bed bugs that are seen in the video have just been treated with insecticide and at 0.29 seconds you can see the first bed bug die. The chemicals flushing agent  irritates the bed bug, causing them to become active and come in contact with the chemical killing them.

Bed Bug Infestation Gets Sorted

A top UK Pest Control company treated Bed Bugs 18 months ago. One of our technicians, Steve Roberts, was faced with a infestation on the bed and headboard (shown on the images below). During the 18 months since the lady had the last treatment, someone had carried on sleeping in this room, and only now have they got a Pest Control company back to sort a problem that should have already been sorted from the previous visits 18 months ago.

The first treatment has been done and the second is booked in. On leaving, the technician did report that there were a large number Bed Bugs dead. With any chemical treatment there is always a 4 hour exclusion zone before re-entering the property.

Bed Bugs on the Rise in January

January is a time for fresh starts and what better time to eradicate any pests you may have in your home which you may have been putting off. These cold months bring about all the general household pests and one of the problems homeowners are finding this month is the common Bed Bug.

Bed Bugs have the amazing ability to survive in all temperatures usually by hibernating this is why the problem can appear all year round. Bed Bugs are very small creatures and therefore this gives them the ability to hide in the best places and remain unseen for long periods of time. Bed Bugs can easily enter the home in a variation of ways, from moving around on second hand furniture (which is becoming a more popular way of purchasing expensive household items). Sometimes household pets can bring these bugs into the home or if you are unlucky enough they can also be picked up from yourself without your knowledge.

If you can confirm that Bed Bugs are in fact your problem then it is important that you act swiftly as these pests can increase in numbers quite rapidly. For further information or an informal chat then please contact us.
