Bed Bugs 2019-01-22T17:45:46+00:00

These blood sucking creatures (Cimex lectularius) are the stuff of nightmares! Yet in a world of perpetual travellers and commuters, they often become a harsh reality and difficult to control. Especially in the hospitality sector with hotels being common places for infestations to occur costing money and damaging reputations. They will hide throughout the day in the joints of bed frames, behind skirting boards and even inside light fittings and sockets. Then stimulated by the c02 we emit through breathing at night these little creatures crawl onto our skin and bite us to suck our blood.

Most people will not even know they are there as they produce a local anaesthetic which numbs the pain and discomfort until after the feeding has finished. Then as they slink off back to whatever crevice they call home, they leave blood spots and traces of faecal matter behind. They can spread very quickly throughout a property and can be very disruptive to everyday life.
