TDC Pest Control Tips & Information
Bed Bugs: What are they and what do they do?
Bed Bugs are small, oval parasites that feed on human blood. Measuring at approximately 5mm in length, these pests live around the seams of mattresses and headboards, however they also prefer to inhabit small, dark spaces, including the back of furniture, a chest of drawers and even a crack in the wall. The reddish-brown pest can leave bites all over the body, in which can cause great irritation, worsening when scratched.
Identifying a bed bug infestation
Some of the most effective ways of identifying if you have a bed bug problem can include:
• Appearance of black dirt on flooring, walls, around seams of mattresses and headboards
• Numerous irritating bites, all over the body
• Small, reddish-brown to black bugs in small spaces, for example a crack in the wall
How are bed bugs treated by a pest controller?
Bed Bugs can be treated by an expert pest controller by using a water-based insecticide spray. It is important that the treated premises is vacated for at least four hours after the treatment. Bed bugs can contaminate an entire property so it is very important that as much of the area as possible is treated.
When is the best time to treat bed bugs?
Ideally, a bed bug infestation should be treated in the morning. This is because it is more likely that the insecticide will settle, as well as minimising any risk of inhalation of the spray.
Bees and wasps: what are they and what do they do?
Species of bees that are subject to pest control
There are three different species of bees that may cause customers to contact us:
• Honey bees are black and yellow-orange in colour and may build their nests anywhere, with the appearance of a fluffy head and smooth body.
• Masonry bees are the smallest of the bee species and are black and orange in colour. These bees drill into brick work to create cavities to build nests, potentially causing structural damage and considered to be a pest to your property.
• Bumble bees are the largest of the bee species. Fluffy all over, black with yellow bands and like honey bees, will their build nests anywhere.
Identifying a bee or wasp infestation
There are a few tell-tale signs to confirm if you have bees or wasps lurking in your home, from checking your attic or loft for a wasps nest, to the dark and dry corners of your property, as wasps prefer to build their nests here (unlike bees that are able to build their nests anywhere). Alternatively, if you notice structural damage to your property such as holes in the walls and damaged mortar between bricks, it is likely that you are suffering from a masonry bee infestation.
If you are suffering from a bed bug infestation, or you have found a bees or wasps nest in or outside your property, please call TDC Pest Control today on 01666539222 for your pest problem to be removed safely and efficiently.
