Bed Bug Treatment Accrington

Accrington's Leading Bed Bug Treatment Experts

Bed bugs crop up anywhere, resulting in very itchy occupants!

Infestations of bed bugs can occur in furnished rooms such as those in hostels, hotels, shared or rented housing and other accommodation types such as Airbnb rentals and anywhere that experiences high turnover in occupancy.

Treatment Of Bedbug Infestations

Often we use a combination of superheated steam applied to the bed frames, mattress bedside furniture etc., followed by a natural insecticide mixed with an insect growth regulator.

Cracks and crevices are treated with an organic compound that attacks insects through physical trauma instead of ‘poison’. We would generally apply a long-lasting residual synthetic insecticide on revisit treatments.

The choice and suitability of the product would be decided on-site after assessing the suitability for the environment in which it is to be used.

    Cause Of Bedbug Infestations

    Unlike flea infestations, bed bugs aren't brought into a property by your four-legged friends. Instead, bed bugs prefer the two-legged variety!

    Bed bugs are introduced to a property by travel and occupancy changes. The more people coming in and out, the greater the chance someone will bring in bed bugs.

    Bed bugs hitch a lift on people, clothing, luggage or other personal belongings and hop off again when they find a nice warm place to stay with lots of hiding places.

    So it's no surprise that properties with high occupancy turnover are prime locations for spreading bed bugs.

    Second-hand furniture can also be a major cause of bringing bed bugs into a property.

    Bed bugs can go many months without a blood meal, so just isolating an item for some time will not prevent further bed bug infestation.

    Once bedbugs get inside your home, they multiply; one female bedbug will lay one to five eggs daily, or an average of 120 eggs.

    Upon hatching, those baby bed bugs will reach maturity in three weeks, seeking out blood meals from you and your family while you're sleeping by zoning in on the carbon dioxide you exhale and laying eggs...lots of them!

    Have you got bed bugs?

    Signs Of Bedbug Infestation - Adult bed bugs are around 5mm long and reddish-brown. They are experts in finding a hiding place, including bed frames, mattresses, clothing, furniture, behind pictures, and any other objects around the bed and even under loose wallpaper.

    It can be difficult to distinguish between a bedbug and flea bites, but the things to look out for in a bedbug bite are:

    • Red, often with a darker red spot in the middle
    • Itchy
    • Arranged in a rough line or cluster
    • Located on the face, neck, arms and hands

    Other signs of a potential bedbug infestation are:

    • Blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases
    • Dark or rusty spots of bedbug excrement on sheets, mattresses, and bedclothes.
    • Bedbug faecal spots, egg shells or shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide
    • An offensive, musty odour from the bedbugs scent gland
    • Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs, each of which is about the size of a speck of dust, over a lifetime – if you suspect you may have bedbugs, you must get professional pest control assistance as soon as possible.

    Suppose you identify that your mattress does have a bedbug infestation. In that case, you may want to get rid of it for a new one. However, please ensure you get professional pest control treatment beforehand, or the new mattress will quickly become reinfested.
