All About Bedbugs

Once a bedbug infestation is established they can spread extremely quickly and subsequently require a lengthy control treatment. Why many are tempted by the DIY home solutions, we at Direct Pest have found that they simply are not powerful enough any more to eradicate the presence of these awful pests as increased exposure has enabled bedbugs to build up a resilience to many types of conventional pesticides. Why we can use stronger pesticides as licensed pest controllers, it can also be extremely difficult for professional treatments as bedbugs are known in the pest control industry to be one of the hardest things to get rid of. With many companies you will find the bedbugs eventually return, however, use only the best but safest products available to both rid your bedbug problem and ensure they do not return.

Bedbugs are parasitic insects that feed entirely on blood. Evidence of their existence consists of small droplets of blood in your bedding as they feed on human blood, although some species are specialised to other animals. They are mainly active at night but this does not mean they are exclusively nocturnal creatures as they usually feed on their hosts without even being noticed. Bedbugs’ bites can cause skin rashes and allergic symptoms, however, bites can lead to a range of issues from no visible effects to prominent blisters. Your home can become infested in a variety of ways, so care should be taken when items such as furniture, clothing, or backpacks are brought in. Furthermore, if nearby dwellings are infested, there may be easy routes such as ducts or false ceilings that mean that bedbugs can gain access and subsequently infest your house. Although bedbugs can feed on pets, they are not believed to be a factor in their spread as they do not live or travel on the skin of their hosts. It is very common to find that one person gets bitten more than others as bedbugs are attracted to the animal which gives off most carbon dioxide. If that turns out to be your pet, then you might not notice the bedbugs as quickly, but you’ll certainly notice a grumpy pet!
