Pest Control for Bed Bugs
If you’re waking up with mysterious itchy bites, bed bugs may be to blame. These pests hide away in bedding, mattresses, and curtains, coming out once you’re asleep to bite and feed on your blood.
With the only real sign of a bed bug infestation being the red, itchy bites they leave behind, these pests can be challenging to get rid of once and for all. We recommend professional pest control, so you can get back to sleeping soundly.

How to spot a bed bug infestation
With bed bug infestations becoming increasingly common, knowing the signs of a potential infestation is helpful.
What do bed bugs look like?
These pests get out of control quickly because they are small and difficult to see. Bed bugs are typically red, 5 to 8 mm long, with a flat and oval body. When they hatch, bed bugs are translucent and darken after each moult.
Due to their size, you may not ever see a bed bug even if they are around. Instead, you may notice dark stains and small spots on sheets, a musty sweet smell, or blood spots.
Bed bug behaviour
Another reason that infestations occur is due to the bed bug’s reproductive behaviour. One female bed bug can lay up to 200 eggs during her life, and because the eggs are so small (approximately 0.8 mm), they are often missed by DIY treatments.
Able to live for several months without feeding, it’s common for these pests to infest homes when brought in on stored furniture or reinfest a home when a new tenant moves in.
How to prevent bed bugs
Bed bugs usually arrive in one home after being transported from another. To prevent them from arriving in your home, you should:
- Check all second-hand furniture thoroughly
- Wash bedding and other textiles in hot water
- Avoid using shared laundry facilities
- Vacuum regularly
- Immediately wash clothes and thoroughly clean luggage after travelling
