Bed Bug Control Hertfordshire – We provide bed bug control throughout Hertfordshire to rid you of bed bug infestations. Bed bugs are becoming more and more of a problem in the UK and are extremely difficult to eliminate without using a trained pest controller. Bed bugs are nocturnal and come out at night, you probably won’t see them but will become aware of their presence at the discovery of itchy swollen bites that appear overnight. 

They are attracted by our warm bodies and come out at night to bite our skin and feed on blood. Bed bugs are not dangerous, they don’t transmit human diseases but even so they are extremely irritating and unpleasant and so you should take action straight away , call us now and we will get rid of them.

BED BUG FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    The species of bed bug found in Hertfordshire and the rest of the UK is ‘Cimex Lectularius’, they are flat, oval shaped bugs that don’t have wings. Adult bed bugs are red to brown in colour, whilst their eggs are a white to cream colour.

  • DIET

    Bed bugs have pointy mouths which they use for piercings and sucking, allowing them to feed on human blood. They inject an anaesthetic when they pierce the skin, so the bite might not be noticed initially.

  • HABITAT

    In the day time bed bugs hide very effectively in cracks and crevices, headboards, behind wallpaper, under carpets, behind skirting boards, behind broken plaster, light switches as well as in cracks of bed frames, the seams of mattresses and in other types of bedroom furniture.

  • BEHAVIOUR

    Bed bugs are nocturnal and come out at night, you probably won’t see them but will become aware of their presence at the discovery of itchy swollen bites that appear overnight. Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed exclusively on blood. Signs of bed bugs include faecal spots (small dark droppings), blood smears on bed sheets and in large numbers they can also cause an unpleasant smell.

  • ACTIVITY

    Bed bugs are nocturnal and will venture out from their hiding places at night to feed on humans whilst we sleep. It doesn’t matter how clean a house is, bed bugs will happily infest a property either way and can be easily transported from one building to another, especially places with a lot of people coming and going like hotels, guest houses & bed and breakfasts.

BED BUGS (Cimex lectularius)

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are tiny blood-sucking insects that live in cracks and crevices in and around our beds. They are attracted by our warm bodies and come out at night to bite our skin and feed on blood. Bed bugs are not dangerous, they don’t transmit human diseases but even so they are extremely irritating and unpleasant and so you should take action straight away and call a professional pest controller.

Adult bed bugs are light to reddish-brown, flat and oval-shaped and grow to around 4–5 millimetres long and 1.5–3 millimetres wide. Young are translucent, lighter in colour, becoming browner as they moult and reach maturity. A bed bug of any age that has just consumed a blood meal will have a bright red translucent abdomen, fading to brown over the next several hours, and to opaque black within two days as the insect digests its meal. Bed bugs use pheromones to communicate regarding nesting locations, feeding and reproduction. The life span of bed bugs varies by species and is also dependent on feeding.
Bed bugs can survive a wide range of temperatures and atmospheric compositions.

Adult females can produce up to 150 eggs and so they can multiply and spread quickly. Because infestation of human habitats has been on the increase, bed bug bites and related conditions have been on the rise as well.
