Bed Bug Control
*view our latest bed bug service offer here
Bed bugs are creatures that feed on our blood throughout the night. They are a nocturnal pest that are drawn to our carbon dioxide emissions and can travel up to 6 metres a night in order to find a host.
Experts say that the bed bug population has exploded in Australia, with some estimating as much as 5000% increase since the year 2000. This is bad news because, as you know, Melbourne is a massive tourist destination, and bed bugs certainly love to travel. They can hide on clothing, suitcases and even cars.
What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs are often reddish-brown and oval-shaped. They are often the size of an apple seed and can be easily missed due to their size. Their appearance can alter slightly after they have fed.
Bed Bug Bites
When they used to say to you before bed “don’t let the bed bugs bite”, it turns out that it was actually very good advice.
Bed bug bites (also commonly known as “bed bug rash”) are small, red welts that are commonly mistaken for mosquito stings. The difference is that mosquito stings will often appear to be placed at random, whereas bed bug bites are often in clusters or lines, as they will often need to make multiple attempts to get enough blood from us.
The bites can appear all over our bodies, and you’ll find that bed bug bites itch for weeks and can even lead to irritation and bleeding through excessive scratching.
Don’t worry however, the bites are almost always harmless – just annoying!
