Bed bugs

Bed bugs are a parasitic insect that feed on warm blooded animals including humans. They often live in and around the bed and feed at night when you are sleeping. The main signs of an infestation are the red marks on skin from their bites and blackish spots on bed linen from their droppings. Bed bugs can make their way into homes by being transported on clothes and luggage from other infested areas. This means anybody is susceptible to an infestation and it is not a reflection on personal hygiene standards.

Prevention

Once in your home the bed bugs spread making them difficult to treat, but there are things you can do to help prevent an infestation:

  • inspect mattresses and furniture regularly, checking for the signs of an infestation
  • wash clothes and bedding regularly and at high temperatures
  • keep bedrooms tidy and clutter free to reduce the amount of places for bed bugs to hide
  • inspect any second hand furniture for bed bugs before bringing them into you home. Avoid second hand mattresses
