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.

I was extremely pleased with Falcon Environmental Services. They were efficient, reliable, friendly and professional. I was happy that I found a local company to help with the problem of pests in my attic. They were always available to talk to explaining the situation to me and how they were going to deal with it. I really felt that they went over, above and beyond what I expected. Nothing was too much trouble, my calls and enquiries always returned with a friendly voice, care and consideration. I would honestly recommend them and use their company again if the need arises. It’s very comforting to find good, reliable professional people you can rely on. Thank you to everyone at FALCON.
