Bed bugs received their name by being exactly that – really bugging when you’re trying to sleep. They are both nocturnal and parasitic making them a real nuisance.
Chambers Pest Solutions recommends the following to avoid bed bugs:
- When arriving in new accommodation, check for bed bugs in the sheets, on the mattress and along the headboard. Check out of accommodation immediately if you suspect any evidence of bed bugs
- When you arrive home from a trip, check for bed bugs on the exterior and interior of the suitcase previous to unpacking
- Separate and contain dirty washing so the clothes can be washed without contaminating clean laundry. Clothes should be washed on the hottest setting that the fabric can withstand
Bed bugs cause a number of negative health effects that include rashes, psychological damage and allergies. They must be completely eliminated by a trained professional when discovered. We recommend our Integrated Pest Management Perth Solution should you suspect an infestation of these creepy crawlies. During this consultation, we look at the most suitable pest control solutions and how these methods should be applied. Then we get on with the job of removing the nasties.
