The photo above shows the 'black spotting' caused by the fecal matter of bedbugs, this is a great indicator of an infestation even if the insects  themselves are proving difficult to locate!

Wherever infested pets sleep there are likely to be a high concentration of flea eggs!

Bedbugs and fleas: These increasingly common pests plague many properties across the UK. They can often prove difficult to eradicate but with our proven methods you will not be disappointed. We adhere strictly to industry codes of best practice safely, efficiently & cost effectively dealing with your issue.

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) Bed bugs are insects that, as adults, have oval-shaped bodies with no wings. Prior to feeding, they are around 1/4 inch long and as thin as paper. After feeding, they turn dark red and become bloated. Eggs are whitish, pear-shaped and about the size of a pinhead. Clusters of 10-50 eggs can be found in cracks and crevices. Bed bugs have a one-year life span during which time a female can lay 200-400 eggs depending on food supply and temperature. Eggs hatch in around 10 days. Bed bugs prefer to feed on human blood, but will also bite mammals and birds. Bed bugs bite at night, and will bite all over a human body, especially around the face, neck, upper torso, arms and hands. Bed bugs can survive up to six months without feeding. Both male and female bed bugs bite. After an infested property has been thoroughly hoovered to remove as many eggs as possible an insecticidal spray treatment combined with the dusting of cracks and crevices using a suitable powder based insecticide. THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT IS AN EXTREMELY THOROUGH JOB! If a bedbug treatment is approached in the same manner as a flea treatment then the insects may be largely unaffected or worse dispersed throughout a property making eradication far more difficult. Depending on the severity of the infestation a further 2 treatments at 14 day intervals may be required after the initial application to eradicate any bugs that may have hatched from stray eggs unavoidably missed by the initial pre-spray cleansing. In the majority of treatments however we pride ourselves on eradicating the issue with one treatment only. All subsequent treatments are included in our initial quote as the job is always guaranteed. Pre-treatment we usually only ask that clients hot wash and securely store all bedding before we arrive to allow unhindered access to bed frames. We thoroughly vacuum and and dismantle furniture if necessary prior to the application of the most suitable insecticides combined with steam treatment where needed. We are also able to supply monitoring stations ensure ensure control has been achieved post - treatment. Fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) We most commonly encounter the cat flea, although more rarely the human and dog flea are found at the heart of an infestation. No species can breed efficiently without their respective host species, however when desperate will feed from the blood of most mammals. Quite often an owner will not notice their pets have fleas until a routine treatment after a trip to the vets when the fleas are forced off of their preferred host and onto humans! We recommend that any infested pets are treated a week prior to the implementation of a thorough spray treatment using a broad spectrum residual insecticide and IGR (see below). Fogging can be used to 'flush' out insects from concealed harborages however due to the limited residual activity (as well as reduced dosage) of most ULV treatments this method should not be relied upon alone. If pets are present in a household we advise that their bedding is hot washed and stored securely before treatment as such bedding can harbor high concentrations of flea eggs. As with the eggs of bedbugs, flea eggs are highly resistant to all insecticides currently licensed for use in a domestic setting in the UK. Eggs typically have an incubation period of roughly 21 days and so although initial insecticide application swiftly deals with adults fleas, eggs will continue to hatch for several days. With the use of an insect growth regulator (IGR) in conjunction with the residual insecticide the majority of juvenile fleas are prevented from developing into biting adults before picking up a lethal dose of dried insecticide (once our residual insecticide dries it remains active for several months against insects whilst being harmless to mammals including humans! This is why we advise against hoovering for 14-21 days post treatment to ensure that the insecticides remains active in position for the duration of the potential egg hatching phase). A second treatment 14-21 days after the initial spraying may be required and is again included within our quotes. We are able to provide flea traps post treatments to ensure treatment has has been completely successful.
