Bed bugs are small insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds. Adult bed bugs are oval, wingless and rusty red coloured, and have flat bodies, antennae and small eyes. They are visible to the naked eye, but often hide in cracks and crevices. When they feed, their bodies swell and become a brighter red. In homes, they feed primarily on the blood of humans, usually at night when people are sleeping.
Typically, the bite is painless and rarely awakens a sleeping person. However, it can produce large, itchy welts on the skin.Although bed bugs may be a nuisance to people, they are not known to spread disease.Welts from bed bug bites do not have a red spot in the centre – those welts are more characteristic of flea bites. Although bed bugs may be a nuisance to people, they are not known to spread disease.However, they are known to cause allergic reactions from their saliva in sensitive people.
Bed Bugs Treament
High Temperature Steamer
Steam is a very effective method for killing bed bugs in all the stages of development.
Steamers work by delivering lethal temperatures to where bed bugs may be hiding. Steam is very effective when bed bugs are on the surface of items and can be effective up to 3/4″ into fabric surfaces. In cracks and crevices, steam will kill bed bugs up to 2-3/8” into a gap. Use an infrared thermometer to monitor the surface temperature of the area being treated. To effectively kill bed bugs the surface temperature should be at least 72-83°C immediately after the steam brush has passed.
This Method works on Dog tick, cat flea and many more infestations.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) droplets
Currently, most non-chemical products and techniques do not quickly or efficiently eliminate established bed bug populations. In many cases, the judicious application of a pesticide by a certified pest control professional is necessary.
However, bed bugs have developed an extraordinary resistance to most classes of pesticides. Our chemical combines the fast-acting, broad-spectrum control of beta-cyfluthrin with the systemic residual control of imidacloprid to provide premium performance and efficacy. It has been proven to be incredibly effective against bed bugs, and to enhance the effectiveness we treat bed bug infestation with our Ultra Low Volume (ULV).
ULV generate droplets between 5-50 microns (μm) in diameter,which is proven to be the optimum size in treating bed bug and harder to reach area.
