Bedbugs are an increasing problem in the UK and are particularly hard to treat. Despite common belief bed bugs aren’t just found in beds but can be found in any furniture whether it is made of wood or fabric. Bed bugs get passed through areas of high traffic sometimes through clothes, second hand furniture, bags etc. Once in your home they generally lay dormant during the day and can potentially be in a property for up to 6 months before you may see signs of them biting you.
Common bed Bug facts;
- Usually found anywhere in bedrooms, within any dark harbourage (not just beds)
They feed at night
- Are able to survive many months without feeding (enabling them to lay dormant and unnoticed)
Can only be carried into a premise
- Severe infestations can cause anaemia
