Local Bed Bug Killers
Did you know that a female bed bug can lay over 500 eggs during her lifetime?
As impressive as that may be, bed bugs are no yolk – particularly as these critters feed on human blood. No need to throw out your mattress just yet though – our expert team of pest controllers is on hand to help you sleep easy once again.
Sleeping with the enemy
Bed bugs are about the size of a small apple seed and they feed on mammals, including humans, cats and dogs, by injecting saliva into the skin which serves as an anaesthetic (this is why you won’t feel the bite but may wake up to find your skin covered in tiny, itchy bites. Despite popular belief, washing your mattress and bedding won’t solve the problem as these resilient creatures can survive temperatures up to 122 degrees fahrenheit and won’t necessarily be killed by water. People also make the mistake of believing that turning their mattress will solve the problem. In reality, this simply cocoons the pests deeper into your mattress and bedding.
As well as causing skin irritation, bed bugs can be disastrous for hotels and guest houses – particularly in the modern world where a bad review is just a couple of clicks away. There’s a common misconception that bed bugs only target dirty homes and businesses but, that’s simply not the case. These tiny pests can be transferred into a property on clothing or in second hand furniture and, once they move in, it can be difficult to give them their marching orders.
We provide our bed bug removal service throughout Birmingham, Redditch, Kidderminster, Dudley, Wolverhampton, Walsall and the West Midlands.

How do I know if I have bed bugs?
It can be difficult to identify a bed bug problem – in fact, many people mistake bed bug bites for flea bites if they have a cat or a dog in the house. Although small red itchy bites are the most obvious sign that you may have a bed bug problem, there are also some other things to look out for:
Tiny blood stains on your bedding or pillowcase. Bed bugs feed on human blood and, where there are bugs there will usually be evidence in the form of small blood stains.
Excrement. Bed bugs will usually leave excrement on sheets and mattresses and this will present as dark or rust colours spots on bedding, clothing and walls.
Shells and skins. Bed bugs constantly leave behind tiny pieces of shell and discarded skin. Grab a microscope and see if you can spot any of these tell tale signs.
Smell. The presence of bed bugs is often accompanied by an unpleasant musty odour which is secreted from a bed bug’s scent glands.
One or more of these things is usually a good indication that bed bugs are present – and that it’s time to call in the professionals!
