Bed Bugs Birmingham – Complete Pest Management
Here at Complete Pest Management, we are ready to tackle any bed bug problem you have. When it comes to pests, we have seen them all but there aren’t pests more horrendous than bed bugs. These common pests used to be associated with unhygienic surroundings, increased travel, the use of second-hand clothing or furniture and suspected tolerance to some pesticides.
Bed bugs work differently from other pests we deal with and they must be treated uniquely as a result. There could be thousands of bed bugs in a single room (that thought alone is horrendous). Which is why, here at Complete Pest Management, we carry out comprehensive bed bug treatments throughout Birmingham.
Ames Pest Controllers Will:
- Give a no-obligation quotation for the removal of the bed bug infestation
- Look for signs of any bed bug activity currently at the premises
- Give advice on the best course of treatment
- Point out risk factors contributing to a bed bug problem
- Provide recommendations to help you maintain a bug-free environment
- For contracts with commercial clients, our technician will be able to advise you on the most appropriate integrated pest management program for your organisation, along with the number of scheduled visits appropriate to create and maintain a pest-free environment.
About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are horrible pests to have in your home. They are small, blood-sucking insects that live in the crevices in and around your bed. They crawl out at night to bite on your exposed skin and feed on your blood.
Bed bugs are disgusting.
Bed bugs can be extremely stressful to share a bed with. Oval-shaped, flat and around the size of an apple seed, bed bugs are pests that can get out of control very quickly. Although they aren’t dangerous, some people do experience reactions to their bites and they can cause a lot of distress.
Discover the Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
- Small bugs or tiny white eggs in the joints of your mattress and furniture
- Bites on your skin
- Tiny black spots on your mattress – likely to be blood or their dried faeces
- Moulted bed bug shells leaving an unpleasant, musty scent in your bedroom
How to Get Rid of Bedbugs
Bed bugs can be extremely difficult to get rid of. So, your best chance of successfully treating an infestation is to get professional help. Here at Complete Pest Management, we offer thorough and professional pest control services that ensure your home is completely pest-free! One of our qualified technicians will carry out an inspection to confirm an infestation and they can then decide on the appropriate treatment.
If you wish to try getting rid of bed bugs yourself, we would advise washing all clothes and bed linen at sixty degrees Celsius, putting them in the dryer on a hot setting for thirty minutes and using a vacuum cleaner to suck up any bugs you can see. Consider throwing away any items of furniture or mattresses that are heavily infected as it is unlikely you will be able to completely free yourself from bed bugs if the number of bed bugs is rampant.
How to Prevent Bed Bug Infestations
Bed bugs aren’t attracted to dirt, so they’re not a sign of an unclean home, but clearing up any clutter will help reduce the number of places they can hide. Avoiding an infestation of bed bugs can be difficult, particularly in locations such as hotels and restaurants where bed bugs are easily transported in luggage, clothing and furniture. Once you have bed bugs in your home, they can quickly spread. Although they cannot fly, they can crawl long distances and it can help to inspect your mattress and bed regularly for signs of infestation. If you think you have bed bugs, we would highly recommend calling a professional to seek advice and treatment options. Hiring a professional pest control service will ensure the pests are exterminated completely.
Why Control Bed Bugs?
Although bed bugs are not known to spread diseases or cause any real danger to humans, they can cause irritation and distress and they can ruin an organisation’s reputation. If clients discover an infestation of bed bugs in the premises you manage, they are likely to complain and your company could be negatively impacted. So, we would always recommend you control bed bug infestations as soon as you find them and do everything you can to prevent the problem in the first place!
