Many customers we deal with make the mistake of thinking that throwing away the bedroom furniture and the bed will get rid of the bed bug problem. This is commonly a disastrous move as dragging a bed, mattress or other item infested with bed bugs around a property will almost always spread the problem around it.

We can provide you with suitable sealable mattress disposal bags and sealable bed disposal bags for all sizes of beds for this purpose – call us now to order on 01832 770483 or 0207 416 6671. You will find lots of DIY tactics for dealing with bed bug outbreaks online, but the truth is they don’t work, and while they are not working, the bugs are laying eggs and the problem will be getting worse. Bed bugs are hard to kill even if you have all the armoury at the disposal of a professional pest controller. For a quotation, Contact Us.
The beauty of bed bug heat treatment is that is kills bugs in all their stages – adults, larvae, pupae and crucially the eggs. Heat treatment kills by denaturing the proteins and enzymes essential for the insect to survive and, unlike with pesticides, the bugs cannot build up resistance to it. When done correctly, the heat penetrates all the hard-to-reach cracks and crevices that the bugs like to live in. It is very important that this process is carried out by qualified and experienced professionals. We understand the need to be as inconspicuous as possible during the process. Temperature must be brought up slowly and maintained for long enough to be fully effective. We use numerous temperature sensors attached to a wireless data logger to ensure the heat penetrates fully. We are so confident in this approach that our treatments are GUARANTEED to get rid of the problem. The other advantages of heat treatment include that there is no need to dispose of any valuable furniture or furnishings, and rooms can be re-opened straight away. For a quotation, Contact Us
