Below, you will find further details of your bed bug treatment.
Where possible clear clutter away prior your bed bug treatment, particularly around the bed area. This means our technicians will have access to more areas to treat and will make the process quicker and more effective.
Do not put things into sealed plastic bags. The bed bugs will only re-infest your home when you open the bags, as they can go into diapause for upto 18 months .
Once we have treated, we require you to leave your property for 2-3 hours. This allows the chemical we have sprayed to dry and will then be safe for you and your family.
Let us know if you have pets so we can ensure that any chemicals we use do not cause them any problems.
Be prepared to have the odd bite after we have treated. This is completely normal and means that any bed bugs which have hidden away during the treatment will now have crossed the chemical barrier and will soon die. Our chemicals have a residual affect and last for up to 60 days. This means that any eggs which may hatch after treatment will also be killed.
Bed bug eggs take 18 days to hatch and bed bug adults and nymphs can take up to 10 days to feed. You treatment can take up to five weeks to kill all bed bugs in the property.
- We use the very latest professionally available insecticides that kill bed bugs immediately on contact.
- We use growth inhibitors to stop further growth stages dead in their tracks.
- We use long-lasting micro-encapsulated insecticides that remain active for 60 days.
- We treat cracks and crevices and bed bug hideaways with specialist techniques.
Further details of your bed bug treatment will be explained during the treatment process. Documents will also be emailed following the treatment.
