It will take two visits from a pest controller to treat an infestation. The controller will need to attend the premises to assess the work that will be required, trapping squirrels or, in the case of rats of mice, using bait or sticky boards. Our controllers will give advice on preventing any further infestation, making sure that your pest problem is a thing of the past. On the second visit, our pest controllers will remove any baits, boards or traps used, as well as any remaining dead bodies.
TDC Pest Fact: Rats contaminate and destroy enough food worldwide each year to feed 200 million people.
Bed bugs: Identifying & treating an infestation
Bed bugs are small, oval parasites that feed on human blood. Aptly named, bed bugs live around the seams of mattresses and headboards. The reddish-brown insect measures at around 5mm in length and can leave bites all over the body, in which can cause great irritation, escalating when scratched.
5 Signs you may have a bed bug problem:
Bites – If you are regularly finding yourself covered with small, red marks and they swell or itch when scratched, it is likely you have a bed bug infestation, as these pests feed on sleeping humans.
Checking your mattress and headboard – It is important to check your mattress, headboard and bed frames thoroughly for signs of both the small, black bugs and their eggs. Bed bugs often leave behind small, black traces in which can be identified as faeces, or sometimes rust-coloured stains are left on mattress tags and seams.
Sweet odours – When there is a large colony of bed bugs, they will tend to emit a sickly sweet almond smell. Bed bugs produce these chemicals in which help them to communicate, thus leaving an odour. It is important to note however, that not everyone will be able to notice the smell.
Eggs and exoskeletons – Bed bugs have an outer shell that they shed and leave behind. There can also be eggs present in which female bed bugs lay in small crevices. These appear to be white and oval shaped, and can be difficult to spot.
Black marks – If you have noticed the appearance of black marks and dirt on skirting boards, flooring, walls, and around the seams of mattresses and headboards in your property, this is a sure sign that you may have a bed bug infestation that needs the attention of an expert pest controller.
Treating a bed bug problem
Bed bugs can easily be treated by a fully certified pest controller. Vacuuming alone will not remove the pests, and bed bugs can contaminate an entire property so it is important that as much of the area as possible is treated. A TDC Pest Controller will be able to assess the severity of the infestation, only after this will a water-based insecticide spray be used effectively to eradicate the pests.
If you are worried you have a bed bug problem that needs the attention of an expert pest controller, Call TDC Pest Control today on 01208479172 for your pest problem to be solved safely and efficiently.
