Bed bugs are small, blood-feeding insects that attach themselves to soft furnishings and items like luggage. You can call our friendly pest control team today to discuss your requirements. Pro Pest Control Gold Coast are ready to take your call.

What Are Bed Bugs?

These bugs like to get into the nests and hovels of animals, as well as the beds of humans. Whenever their prey is asleep, they will suck the blood of the creature and feed for themselves. They also prefer living in dark areas: such as mattresses, clothing, couches, and other items that hide them and keep them safe.

They need to feed regularly to reproduce and survive, and will primarily feed between midnight and 5am.

Are bed bugs dangerous?

In terms of disease, no, but in terms of your wallet after an infestation, yes. Bed bugs are masters at hiding and insecticide alone will not kill them. Carried in on luggage or used furniture, once inside your house they hide in bed seams, couch cushions, curtains or any soft furnishings. They are not known to carry any diseases but avoiding and  preventing being infested is the best control method.

Common Bed Bugs

Cimex Lectularius

This bed bug is very common in Europe and the U.S, and has immigrated to Australia, and they are one of two bed bug types that will feed on humans. These bed bugs can be infected with up to twenty eight human pathogens, but are unable to transmit these diseases to humans. If it is feeding regularly then the female bed bugs can lay up to two to three eggs per day.

Cimex Hemipterus

This is the tropical bedbug that is one of the other types that feeds on humans. It lives in warmer areas and also requires blood from warm blooded creatures to survive. They will also change colors depending on its status with blood. If it has not had a meal of blood it will be brown, while it will display a slight red color if it has eaten.

How do I prevent bed bugs?

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as the saying goes. If you can keep bed bugs out of your home in the first place it will be worth the work necessary to detect them. Always, always, always:

  • Inspect any used furniture, bedding and bed frames before bringing them inside
  • Check any luggage or tote bags for bed bugs before bringing the items in to your house
  • Never put luggage on a bed for unpacking

What if bed bugs do make it into my house?

Even the most cautious homeowner can experience a problem with bed bugs. Your house can be spotless yet one piece of luggage from an overnight trip to Aunt Beulah’s can bring in a family of bed bugs. The first thing you want to do in this circumstance is to contact a professional pest control company.

Ridding your house of bed bugs will likely involve every room and requires a two-step process. Because they hide well and are very mobile, the first step is applying an insecticide, followed by a steam treatment. Insecticides do not kill all stages of bed bugs, but steam does.

Bed Bug Control Tips

  • You can vacuum the carpeted areas where bed bugs might be hiding, and can change the bag to make sure the bugs don’t get out.
  • Regularly wash and heat-dry your bed sheets to reduce the number of bed bugs, and also make sure to clean your laundry basket.
  • Make sure to destroy any infected mattresses or furniture that you are getting rid of to make sure the bedbugs do not spread.
