Bed Bug Treatment In Leeds
Bed bugs are small insects that are approximately 5mm in size. They are usually a light brown colour, but this will change to a darker brown shade as they begin to feed. Signs of bed bugs in the home include small blood spots or black spots on your bedding or textiles. You may also notice bites on your legs or other parts of your body. This is because the bed bugs come out at night to feed. They may also make a place for themselves in your mattress, crevices in your walls and furniture, your bed frame and even plug sockets.
Contrary to popular belief, bedbugs do not always occur because of unsanitary conditions in the home. It is far more likely that people end up bringing bed bugs back with them after they have gone on holiday or visited another area. The bedbugs may get caught up in clothes or packed luggage and then take up residence in your house afterwards.
Bed bug removal is a time-consuming and labour-intensive process. We really recommend that you contact us before attempting to eradicate these pests on your own. Our professional technicians can assist you with the following procedures:
- Moving furniture away from the walls when possible
- Washing all bedding, clothing, cuddly toys and textiles in a 60 degree cycle
- Vacuum all floors with a bag-less vacuum cleaner
- Taking all items off of the floor
Our technicians can then spray your property with insecticide that will treat the bed bugs. We recommend that you and any pets vacate the property for at least four to six hours. You will need to take cleaned items outside of the home while the property is being treated. Do not vacuum or mop the floors for at least eight days after treatment. You may notice that you continue to experience bedbug bites for up to 15 days after treatment – this is because new eggs are still hatching, though the bugs will shortly die afterwards due to the insecticide sprayed in your property.
