Bedbugs are a rising problem throughout the UK, especially in heavily populated cities like London. They spread easily to non-infested properties by latching onto unwitting hosts.

With thousands of hotels and shared accommodation located all over London, they are able to spread extremely quickly and can quickly overrun a home. Our bed bug pest control services are one of London’s leaders in bedbug treatment, specialising in heat and chemical techniques to rid your home of infestations as quickly and easily as possible.

Indicator of an Infestation

The insects may be very difficult to find, but infestations are typically concentrated on or around bedding or upholstered furniture, and clusters of the insects, their eggs and immature stages may be found on seams of mattresses, Bed Bases and in folds of upholstered furniture.

The pattern of bites is another means of confirming that the infestation is indeed that of bedbugs. Though bedbug bites can occur singly, they often follow a familiar pattern of a linear group of three bites, sometimes macabrely referred to as “breakfast, lunch and dinner”. These patterns of bites are caused when a bedbug is disturbed in feeding by a person moving, and then the bedbug resumes feeding. If you’ve experienced any of this, it’s time to contact our Bed Bug Pest Control specialists in London.

Bedbug bites also very often occur in lines marking the paths of blood vessels running close to the surface of the skin. The effect of these bites on humans varies, but often cause swelling that are itchy and longer-lasting than mosquito bites. Some people, however, have little or no reaction to bedbug bites. Those whose bodies do not initially react may subsequently develop symptoms, however, due to an allergic reaction caused by the development of antigen. Bedbugs never crawl under one’s skin and markings implying this may be signs of other skin infections or a severe allergic reaction to bedbug bites.

I’ve got bed bugs – what should I do?

Once you are certain you have bed bugs, doing nothing isn’t really an option as they lay several eggs a day and a small infestation will quickly become a significant outbreak. Not doing anything will also lead to you and your loved ones being continually bitten in their sleep and this very commonly leads to loss of sleep, and psychological problems.

Is there anything I can do myself?

In terms of eradicating a bed bug outbreak it’s extremely unlikely that you will be able to do it yourself without the help of a specialist pest control service that has a great deal of experience in dealing with bed bug infestations. However, there are several steps you can take to gain some level of control yourself.

What are Home Remedies for Bed Bugs?

How to Tell the Difference Between Hives and Bed Bug Bites?
