Bed bugs are an extremely common pest and bed bug exterminators have recorded a rise in bed bug extermination enquiries especially heat treatment, since foreign travel became so much cheaper. A bed bug infestation can leave you and your family feeling extremely vulnerable due to the invasive nature of their bites and the knowledge that your blood is a tasty meal for them. Early bed bug treatment is crucial to success and you should always contact a pest control expert.

Bed bugs bite! There are numerous clues to help you determine whether you need bed bug control, the main one being raised, red bites on exposed skin areas. You may also spot small blood splatters on your mattress as it is common to squash them in your sleep when you turn over. A bed bug infestation requires professional pest control in order to reduce bed bug activity quickly. A heat treatment service is the quickest method as bed bugs travel from room to room, however chemical treatment is just as effective when it comes to treating an infested room.

At Pestcure limited, all of our pest technicians are trained to deliver your bed bug treatment and are competent in dealing with your pest problems whether you require bed bug control in a commercial premises, or a course of bed bug sprays in your home.

How could I contribute to bed bug control?

1) If you suspect bed bugs, check your bed frame and mattress every few hours for an obvious pest problem.

2) Hoover/steam rooms in your property thoroughly and dispose of vacuum bag immediately.

3) Purchase some diatomaceous earth to dehydrate bed bug eggs.

4) Do not accept second hand furniture as bed bugs are easily spread from one property to another.

How to get rid of bed bugs

  1. If you live in shared accommodation, or simply have an individual bed beg problem, you should try to secure the rooms by Inspecting any crevices, cracks, and holes and fill them to avoid movement in the wall cavities as this is one of their main hiding places.
  2. You could also install door sweeps to isolate your room and contain the infestation to prevent it spreading to other rooms in the house.
  3. Bed bugs are found hiding in many places, some that you wouldn’t even think of! By reducing the amount of clutter you have present in your home, you will greatly improve your chances of prevention. The bugs will have less hiding places to conceal in and this would make treating them more straight forward if necessary.
  4. If you suspect an early infestation, vacuuming regularly can remove any unwanted hitchhikers. Although vacuuming alone wont solve a bed bug infestation, it will certainly help keep them under control to some degree.
  5. Make sure you dispose of your hoover bag correctly and if your hoover doesn’t contain a bag, you should empty the contents into a plastic bag, tape it shut and dispose of it immediately. Make sure that your vacuum is cleaned after to ensure that no bed bugs remain.
  6. Clothing is a major part of preventing the spread of bedbugs. If you suspect an infestation, you should wash and dry clothing items on the highest possible temperatures but be careful not to damage any items and always read labels carefully.
  7. If you cannot wash them, then a deep freeze for 92 hours will ensure the bugs will not survive. A temperature of -16c is recommended.
  8. You should aim to keep your bedrooms clean and tidy, paying great attention to underneath the bed and in and around that area.
  9. Furthermore, you should also ensure that your pets/pet bedding is clean as bed bugs also feed on pets, rodents and birds.
  10. If you travel frequently, then you need to be extra careful.
  11. Hotels and hostels are prone to bed bugs due to the amount of different people who occupy the rooms. Storing your luggage bag in the garage between trips is highly recommended.
  12. When you arrive at your accommodation, check mattress seams and bed linen for any sightings or signs of bed bugs, if there’s an infestation, you may see tiny blood/black spots or smell a distinctive sweet but sickly smell. Use a torch or flashlight from your phone to help you to do this.
  13. Try to avoid buying or accepting second hand items such as: clothes, house furniture, bags, suitcases, books, clocks, pictures, mattresses and bed frames. If this cannot be avoided, ensure the items aren’t infested! For your safety you should be very vigilant and inspect everything thoroughly.
  14. A bed bug infestation can get out of control very quickly; they can even spread from one house to another, exploiting the walls and floor cavities.
  15. We recommend getting a professional bed bug exterminator to tackle the task as they have expertise and knowledge which highly increases the chances of success.

Bed Bugs in London

London is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. It has expanded its population significantly year on year since 1988 and has led sociologists to estimate growth trends. According to population scientists, London is predicted to grow at the following rates:

0 million
in 2021
0 million
in 2026
0 million
in 2031
0 million
in 2036

This may be good news in terms of our economy, but these figures are alarming when it comes to controlling the spread of bed bugs. Just like foxes are problematic in urban areas, bed bugs are a huge problem in densely populated London.

Incidents of bed bug infestations have grown dramatically since the late 1990s and the spread of these parasites is partly due to a range of human behaviours that are uniquely linked to London.

Business owners travel to London from the four corners of the globe. Over 80 million passengers a year pass through Heathrow Airport alone and a large percentage of these travellers will stay in accommodation such as hotels.

Hotels are one of the primary modes of transporting bed bugs as they latch onto the occupiers luggage/bags, hitching a ride back to their unsuspecting host’s home. Once inside, the female will lay eggs and over a period of 2 weeks the infestation will continually multiply. But what if you do not stay in hotels? Does this mean you are unlikely to get an infestation? Unfortunately not.

Public transport also plays a huge role due to the close and constant proximity of people, as well as the numerous nooks and crannies on trains and buses. You could be sitting on a train, reading a book and a bed bug from the lady’s bag next to you could latch onto your coat. You then go home and hang your coat in your wardrobe and bingo, you now have the start of an infestation!

One of the main problems of preventing an infestation is lack of awareness. Due to the social stigma that surrounds bed bugs, people are embarrassed or reluctant to tackle the problem and hope that it will resolve itself.

Due to our busy schedules, less and less people are following basic hygiene steps such as airing bedding and vacuuming behind beds. All of these factors have led to the easy transmission of bed bugs, especially in London, but there are steps you can take to minimise your chances of bringing home an unwanted guest.

Pestcure Ltd are a professional pest control company and will assist in bed bug removal. Extermination can be achieved by chemical treatments and non toxic heat treatment.

Bed Bug Bites & Harbourage

Bed bugs prefer human blood but will also feed on animals. They inhabit residential properties due to their ability to travel inconspicuously. A bite from a bed bug can cause allergic reactions, discomfort, itching and affect mental wellbeing which is why removing bed bugs promptly is so important.

Bed bug infestations are often, but not always associated with poorer housing where the bugs could be transported on used bedding and furniture. Rental properties, hotels and hostels that are abundant in soft furnishings are more vulnerable due to the volume of people they host.

A bed bugs life cycle consists of numerous life stages. Fully grown, they are about the size of an apple seed and are attracted to the carbon dioxide that we exhale. Bed bugs produce a unique smell from their faeces and scent glands. It’s possible they can ingest up to 7 times their body weight in one feed. They can also live up to one year without a blood meal or host in sight.

Thoroughness is needed and it’s very important to find and treat their harbourage. Excrement may be seen close to their hiding spots and you may also see spots or smears. This is because the fully fed bed bugs will remove excess water before returning to their hiding spots which tend to be tight crevices. You may also see egg cases or eggs.

Bed bugs hide in bed frames, mattresses, skirting boards, wallpaper, wall switches, piping seams, furniture, clothing, window and door mouldings, cracks and crevices, electrical appliances.

I have a tenanted property and am not local to it. James was diligent, professional and considerate with both the tenant of the property and I; giving us advice on how to deal with the rodent issue we had. I would highly recommend James and Pestcue to solve the problem First rate, honest and keeps to his word.

Been hearing scuttling for about a week until two nights ago when it sounded like someone was breaking into our kitchen. We went in to find a huge rat running around the surfaces. The next day we called James from pest cure and he was here within a few hours. During the visit he located the hole the rat was coming through & even saw the rat. By the time he left the kitchen was put back perfectly with two heavy duty traps hidden by the hole (non of those Amazon pieces of plastic). Although he said it could take a week, that night we heard a thwack and saw a dead rat in the morning. Called up James and he said he’d be here the same day to pick up the rat and fill the hole.For something that can make you feel so disgusting in a house, James sorted us perfectly and I highly recommend Pestcure. 10/10.

James is a very professional and knowledgeable pest controller. We are currently using his services for a bed bug related issue and he had been brilliant throughout the process, always able to fit in an appointment at convenient times. Would highly recommend him.

Unfortunately my issue with Mice in my flat was not resolved. James told me I had a “mild infestation” which I assumed would have been easy for a professional to deal with.Unfortunately, a bit more than a month after James’s initial visit, we still see mice in the flat.James was professional and explained that that there are holes in my walls which are large and difficult to reach which I understand and appreciate. Additionally, James was very responsive and came out to the flat a number of times to investigate the situation which is highly appreciated.However, I hired Pestcure to help me sort out an issue, paid their fee, but after a number of visits the issue continues to persist.Response to reply: I don’t understand why this is so disappointing to you. Imagine my disappointment then when I still see rodents in my flat after I paid your fee. I did mention that I appreciate the fact that you came out multiple times and I did mention that James tried his best. Also the claim that I did not close the holes is ridiculous and undermines your response. This is because I could not close the holes while James had traps and other rodenticides down there. I had to wait until James’s last visit before I took action with another professional.

Had bedbugs. Appointment was arranged quickly with Pestcure and James came for 3 treatments to get rid of our itchy friends.Was always easy to arrange the next step and James was always flexible and also let me know exactly when he was likely to arrive. James was always extremely pleasant and informative.Most importantly, the difference has been great and it’s been a fortnight (before the 3rd treatment) since we last saw a bedbug.

I can honestly say that pestcure is one of the best companies I have dealt with. My horses stable was plagued with rats and I was at my wits end! James knows his stuff 100% and I am so grateful that my horses food is no longer being eaten by rodents. Thank you so much Pestcure!

I would highly recommend Pest Cure. James provided excellent service and advice. He was very pragmatic and reassuring. The costs to deal with a mouse issue were very reasonable. The follow up was excellent and he went above and beyond to prevent further incursions by sealing up holes and grates. Overall, excellent, pleasant and professional service.

Highly recommend this company. James was so helpful and invested so much time with us to sort our problem. James’s was always on the other end of the phone to provide support and information and really cares about his clients to get the problem solved. Just want to say thank you to James as he helped me through a very challenging time!

Fantastic experience, James is v knowledgeable and has all the lot needed to remove any issues. Thinks about the client and is reasonably priced unlike other big big competitors who I feel don't have the same skill set. Would definitely re use although I'm hoping I won't need to!So my original review above was last year's issue, this year I had a larger rodent problem, called out James and yet again he's resolved the issue.Issues arose due to rodents living under an outbuilding. James' initial reaction was that it was a drainage issue. He was so thorough, put 2 x cameras down below the outbuilding, removed the decking himself and refused to leave the issue until it was resolved. He came out for 5 visits and after activity seen on camera for over 5 weeks, I've now been 11 days without an issue. This chap is the best in the business full stop, he's fitted drain valves (to stop the rat issue) and persistent rodent bait to eliminate the issue. If the issue comes back I know who to call, but I am at ease now because he has solved the source of the problem and has guided me on how to prevent it in the future. Absolutely brilliant experience and 5 stars really doesn't do his service justice.

James is an extremely professional and kind individual who explains what the problem is and gives his honest opinion. He follows up with good solutions and walks you through the how, what and why. Furthermore, he's helpful throughout the process and is happy to take any further questions or concerns. We used his services for rodent issues and the situation has been improving. Obviously some of it is down to construction issues, but he's more than willing to make you understand the underlying reasons as well. Would highly recommend his service.
