Bed Bugs Pest Control and Treatment Melbourne
Bed bugs are small wingless insects that belong to the Cimicidae family. The insect’s name comes from the common areas where the humans take rest. Places that the bed bugs live include corners in the rooms, bedrooms, beds, and commercial places such as cinemas or theatre. They are fast movers who can’t fly, but they are quick to escape when exposed to light.
Bed bugs are mainly nocturnal, resting during the day and completing most of their feeding at night. These insects are attracted by warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide (which humans breathe out) and thus, we get bitten at night.
Most bedbug bites are painless, but later turn into itchy welts. Unlike other flea bites that are mainly around the ankles, bedbug bites are on any area of skin exposed while sleeping at night. If you wake up with itchy areas you didn’t have when you went to sleep, you may have bed bugs.
One of the most effective ways to track the Bed Bugs infestation is with the help of professional pest control services. Their role plays a pivotal part in eradicating all stages of bed bugs lifecycle. Being an Australian based pest control company, Hire Us 4 Pest Control provides comprehensive bed bug control service knowledge and experience.
Where can you find Bed Bugs?
Bed bug populations have exploded in recent times. They can live up to six months at room temperature and can survive for long periods of time without a blood meal.
The main reason for the increase is thought to be due to insecticide resistance; modern bed bugs are highly resilient to many of the commonly used insecticides. Other contributing factors include the increase in bed bugs being spread in luggage, shoes and clothing. Once acquired at high turnover accommodation, the hitchhiking bed bugs may then be transported and brought back to the homes of guests in their luggage. This can allow for a new bed bugs infestation to occur inside the home.
Bed Bugs Come From:
Signs of Bed Bug infestation:
Dark/dark stains: Blood stains on your sheets, pillowcases or on the mattress and surrounding area.
Sweet fragrance: A disgusting, sweet, sickly fragrance.
Small black stains: Tiny dark bloodstains, known as “faecal pellets,” on bedding.
Live insects: It is possible to see live-bed bugs and shed skins despite being small (adult bugs are only 4-5 mm long).
Bed Bug bite symptoms:
People are the ideal host for bed bugs and grab onto the exposed skin as the host sleeps. Even if the bite is painless when the attack is made, most people experience an allergic saliva reaction transmitted during the bite. That is why bites get red, itchy and swollen. Bites are typically present in patterns or small clusters. This may be a warning that the bites come from bugs in the bed and not from some epidemic.
But some people never respond to bites, making it difficult to recognise an infestation of a bed bug. Following periods of prolonged exposure, humans can reach a stage where their reaction is no longer present or can become more serious.
You can hire a pest control professional who can help identify infested areas. Pest exterminators from Hire Us 4 Pest Control are equipped with the knowledge of where these critters usually hide. They can help remove them in an efficient and effective manner.
