Bed Bugs Control
Bed Bugs incidences have resurged in recent years & their spread is due to the high amount of international travel & a lack of awareness. Bedbugs are usually brought into buildings through our luggage, recycle furniture, boxes, clothing etc. Their flattened bodies allow them to conceal in the tiniest cracks & crevices around the room and within furniture. Faecal spots from these areas are signs of an infestation.
Bed Bugs prefer to harbour near to their next meal, places where we spend long hours like our beds & sofas. Unlike mosquitoes, both sexes’ will suck blood, they may live more than a year & can go for months without a blood meal.
A single female lays about 2 eggs per day & will deposit their eggs at their resting places; Nymphs will hatch out between 1 to 2 weeks & will molt 5 times before becoming adults, and each nymph must have a blood meal to be able to molt to the next stage. They become sexually mature in about 5 weeks & the whole cycle will repeats itself.
