Do You Need a Bed Bug Exterminator?
Bed bugs are a prehistoric insect with a very slow metabolism; this makes them an efficient predator as they do not require regular feeding on their prey (which includes us). They can sit dormant for months with no food supply before either dying or coming into contact with a warm blooded mammal.
If you do happen to suspect a bed bug pest infestation in a room, it is important to isolate that room and have a thorough pest inspection carried out by a professional pest exterminator that specialise in bed bug control (there are many pest controllers that may have never come across bed bugs in the real world).
If they are found, bed bug pest control is not a spray once and get rid of them scenario, it can take 3-4 bug pest control treatments to eliminate the colony. There is an Australian Standard for bed bug pest control that should be followed. Aussie Professional Pest Control Sunshine Coast has a copy of this and adheres to it when our exterminators are required to remove bed bugs.
Pest inspection areas inspected start with, but are not limited to, the bed frame – base – bed head – legs – plastic molding around edge of mattress – skirting boards – floor boards – picture rails – curtain fixtures – picture frames – light switches – power points – wardrobes – bedside tables – gaps in furniture – fixtures.
Once the pest treatment and removal has been carried out, our pest controllers will show you how to detect bed bugs early, and ways to protect your mattresses from further infestations.
