Bed bugs are becoming increasingly more prevalent throughout New Zealand
Bed bugs are found throughout the world and are becoming more prevalent throughout New Zealand, particularly in places where there are large amounts of visitors. Hotels, motels, and backpacker establishments are high risk premises.
Bed bugs are small oval shaped wingless insects. After they have fed, they transform into a reddish brown colour. If it has been some time since they have fed they are translucent, almost clear in colour. They hide in cracks, crevices, bedding, under wallpaper, or any small cavity during the day.
You are unlikely to detect their presence while they are feeding!
They come out at night to feed on blood. Bed bugs are attracted to their food source by body heat and carbon dioxide that emits from our breath. When they feed they inject an anaesthetic along with an anticoagulant; therefore, you are unlikely to detect their presence while they are feeding. However it is these proteins that cause itchy reddened inflammations in about 50% of people. Therefore you may only be aware of their presence because of blood or faeceson the sheets.
Bed bugs are extremely difficult to get rid of!
Bed bugs are not a sign of a dirty home. They will infest the cleanest home or commercial premise that serves as public accommodation. They are easily transported in luggage from one location to another. They can be difficult to get rid of because they are difficult to see. However, our trained professionals know just what to look for, and where to look. You can rid your commercial or residential property of bed bugs with a thorough treatment from Direct Pest.
Rodents gone! I had trouble with vermin for years and thought I had tried everything! Direct Pest and Carpet were able to eradicate them promptly to my disbelief, I would... definitely recommend them to anyone.
