Signs of infestation 

The first step in getting rid of bed bugs is being able to identify an infestation. The most obvious sign is seeing bed bugs themselves - they appear as reddish-brown, oval-shaped insects no bigger than a grain of rice. In addition to this visual clue, you may also find small blood spots on your sheets or mattress where the bugs have been feeding. Other signs include small dark spots (bed bug excrement) or white eggs that may be found on sheets or in the crevices of mattresses and headboards. 

Treatment options 

Once you’ve identified a bed bug problem, it’s time to take action! The best approach is usually to hire a professional pest control company that specialises in treating bed bugs. They will inspect your home thoroughly and create a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific situation. This typically involves using pesticides and/or heat treatments which are specifically designed to kill off any remaining pests while minimising the impact on people and pets living in the home. It’s important to note that DIY treatments are rarely effective against bed bugs so it’s best left to the professionals! 

Tips for prevention  

In addition to getting rid of existing infestations, there are several simple steps you can take to prevent future problems with bedbugs: Vacuum carpets regularly; avoid secondhand furniture; check hotel rooms carefully before settling in and bringing the problem home with you; wash all clothes/linens at high temperatures (above 120F); store items such as luggage away from sleeping areas; seal cracks around baseboards and windows; check regularly for signs of infestation; and use mattress covers/encasements designed specifically for this purpose. By following these simple steps you can help keep pesky bedbugs out of your home!

    Everything you need to know about pest control revealed with our FAQs!

    Is there anything I can do myself to control pests?

    Yes. Different pests can be controlled by various methods. The most critical tasks are identifying the pest and then picking an effective treatment approach.

    Ants, cockroaches, rodents, spiders, and mosquitoes are examples of common pests. Traps, bait, repellents, and insecticides can all be used to get rid of them. When using pesticides, it is critical to thoroughly read the label and observe all safety recommendations.

    It is, however, preferable to contact a professional pest control firm if you are concerned about dealing with the problem yourself, or if you want to learn more about the bugs you are dealing with. They will be able to identify the pest and provide the best way of treatment for the infestation after they receive your request.

    In the long run, is it worth paying for pest control services?

    You may not want to deal with pests, so letting someone else do it will be worth the money. In addition, with the job done well, you can rest easy knowing that your home will be pest-free for the foreseeable future. And at Environ Pest Control London, we only use eco-friendly solutions that will not put your family or pets at risk.

    Exactly how often should pest control be performed?

    The frequency will depend on the type of pest control you are using, as well as the level of infestation you have. The most typical recommendation by experts when it comes to general pest control is to treat every three months. You may have to treat your infestation more frequently if it’s a serious one, however. If you are planning on taking any kind of pest control measures, make sure you consult a professional first.

    What should I do after the pest control experts have completed their work?

    Once your pest control expert has visited your home, it is important that you keep it clean and clutter-free afterwards. This will help ensure that any pests are deterred from returning. Make sure you vacuum, sweep regularly, and take out your household rubbish often. There are undoubtedly a few areas in your house where pests tend to hide (for example, under the sink or behind the fridge), so make sure you clean these areas on a regular basis as well.

    What are the costs associated with pest control services?

    The cost of pest control services can vary depending on the size of the area that needs to be treated, the severity of the infestation, and the type of treatment that is required. Some common treatments that may be used include spraying pesticides or rodenticides, setting traps, or using heat or cold to exterminate pests. Some companies also offer annual contracts in which routine maintenance is performed to prevent pests from entering your home or office.
