Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

No-one wants to share their bed with Plymouth bed bugs. The sheer thought of bugs can make you shudder and keep you awake at night but what do you do when you suspect you actually have bed bugs. Let’s learn a little more about bed bugs, what they need to survive and how you can get rid of them.

Bed bugs need blood to mature

Bed bugs feed on blood. it is their only source of nutrition and in order to mature into adults, they must feed once during each of their immature stages. In order to produce eggs, the adult female must feed on blood. The trouble is, if they are living in your bed, it is going to be your blood they feed on. Now while’s not pleasant to think of sleeping with something that is going to bite you and suck your blood, they don’t carry any diseases that are transmittable to people. Even so, the bites can be red and itchy.

Detecting bed bugs

While bed bugs are quite hard to see with the naked eye, you can find them if you look for them. They particularly like fabric and wood and can be found around the head of your mattress. Another sure sign that you have bed bugs are black spots – this is their faeces. The room will probably smell musty, especially if you have had them a while. You may not want to look but it is advisable to check and deal with the problem rather than ignoring it.

We had a great service from Falcon. They were efficient. Responsive and informative. Mo (Mohammad) was really friendly, kind, efficient and gave us great information that was really interesting. We had been struggling with a hornets nest, he advised it was the biggest he had seen. He was really kind and gave a great service and they have all gone now! I highly recommend Falcon and their team, from when I called up to the end result was 5*. Khara Pierre

I was recommended Falcon to remove a wasp nest from the fascia’s which turned out to be two nests. I can’t rate them highly enough and their quick response was thoroughly followed up until completely sorted. They are honest, friendly and reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend them. It is great to support local people who are good at their work and this is a team who really deserve exactly this. Thank you.
