BEDBUG CONTROL PLYMOUTH

  Bedbugs Control In The Plymouth Area 

Bed bug gets its name from the fact that it is usually found in close proximity to beds. That’s because bed bugs need the blood of warm-blooded animals to survive.

Unfortunately, bed bugs can mature in about 35 days. They then live about seven to 12 months. This makes bed bug removal difficult to do without the help of a professional.

 

THE BEDBUG BITE

Bed bugs primarily feed on humans sleeping in bed at night. The bite is painless, and the blood meal takes about 10 minutes. Have a look at the bedbug signs page

 

PUT BED BUG WORRIES TO REST WHEN YOU TRAVEL

Bed bugs have an uncanny ability to spread using unsuspecting people and their belongings as carriers.

Following the steps below will help minimize the chances of you running into bed bugs in your home in the Plymouth area. More importantly.

  • First, check travel reviews before visiting a hotel, and be careful of those with multiple reports of bed bugs.

  • When you check into a hotel, check the mattress, headboard, bed frame and pictures for any signs of bed bugs.

  • Rather than storing luggage on the bed or floor, keep your luggage on the luggage rack.

  • Avoid storing clothes in dressers and hang clothes that can be hung.

THE TREATMENTS 

with the bed bug in the plymouth area their are two ways to treat for bedbugs.

 

 

THE CHEMICAL TREATMENT 

The chemical treatment consists of using pesticides to kill the bed bugs, applying the pesticide where the bugs hide and travel. 

The areas that Plymouth Pest Control will spray for bed bugs include:

  • Beds

  • Floors

  • Walls

  • Ceilings

  • Furniture

  • Electronics

Chemical Treatments must always be repeated two or three times because these bugs are resilient against pesticides. 

A chemical treatmenthas been proven to be effective and is the lower cost option.

 

 

THE HEAT TREATMENT

The Heat Treatment consists of using high temperatures to kill bed bugs. Heat is proven to be effective at killing bed bugs at all stages of life including eggs. The heat can be applied on a small scale  or on a large scale such as heating the entire structure/unit.
The best way to heat treat is by getting the heat to ALL the bugs and eggs at once, getting them hot enough for long enough.

The Benefits of An Effective Heat Treatment:

  • Minimal, or NO exposure to chemicals

  • Keep your mattress and furniture

  • Only one treatment is needed

BED BUG CONTROL TREATMENT 


Bed Bug Survey: Before we arrange a bed bug treatment, we always undertake a bed bug survey of the property. This involves a detailed investigation of the property to determine the intensity and extent of the infestation, which then allows us to formulate an effective treatment plan.

Bed Bug Pre-treatment preparation: The are some pre-treatment tasks that need to be carried out before we undertake the treatment:

Any items that are to be disposed of should be bagged before removing from the effected room. This will prevent spreading the infestation to other areas.
Vacuuming will remove bed bugs and debris and ensure that the application of insecticide will be more effective. The following areas should be thoroughly vacuumed: wall/floor junctions, carpet edges, bed frames, mattresses and furniture.
Empty the contents of the vacuum into a bag and dispose of in the external rubbish bin.
Washing and tumble drying of suspect clothes and bedding: Washing at 600C for 30 mins will kill all stages of the life cycle. Tumble drying on a hot setting 450C for 30 mins will kill all stages of the life cycle. Ensure that any clothes and bedding are bagged before transferring to the washer.
Sensitive items can be bagged and placed in the freezer at -200C for a minimum of 10 hours and will kill all stages of the life cycle. Bulkier items may require several days.
Empty all wardrobes, drawers, cupboards, divans of rooms that are to be treated.
Remove all fish tanks and remove any plants from the areas to be treated.
Bed Bug Treatment: People and pets must leave the home/business whilst it’s being treated and stay out until all areas are completely dry. This is because the insecticides used to kill the bed bugs can be harmful before it’s dry. The treatment process involves the application of a specialist residual insecticide to all infested areas. This will kill any bed bugs that are directly contacted but more importantly, leave a fine residue of insecticide that will kill bed bugs when they emerge from their harbourage sites.

Bed Bug Post-Treatment Recommendations: For the treatment to be successful, there should be no cleaning or vacuuming of the treated areas for 2 to 3 weeks. This will allow the insecticide to remain in place and kill any emerging bed bugs. After 2 to 3 weeks a follow-up visit will be carried out to ensure the treatment has been successful.
