How do I know if I have a bed bug problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of a bed bug infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to bed bugs will help you determine if it is in fact bed bugs you are dealing with.

There are a number of tell-tale signs that you have a bed bug infestation:

  • Bed bug bites: red, irritating bites typically in rows around your neck, shoulders, back, legs or arms.
  • Spots: small reddish-brown spots on the bed frame or sides of the mattress.
  • Blood Smears: Small smears of blood on the linen or headboard.

Bed bugs are oval-shaped brownish-red, and approximately the size of an apple seed. Female bedbugs lay 200-500 eggs over two months in batches of 10-50. Depending on conditions, eggs can hatch in about a week, and the newly hatched nymphs shed five times before reaching maturity.

Bed bugs respond to warmth and carbon dioxide from a host to feed on. If a host is not available, bed bugs can stay in an inactive state for weeks or months. Bed bugs are nocturnal and usually start feeding when people are asleep however if there is a heavy infestation, bed bugs have been known to feed during the day.

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps for bed bug treatment London:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a thorough survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – Proofing recommendations will always be given by our technicians when identified. 
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing to pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Destruction – This is what it says, destroying pests that do manage to find their way into your home. We use commercial-grade insecticides safely to provide a comprehensive bed bug spray in accordance with the label to ensure full control. 
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process, our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions to you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.
