BEDBUG PEST CONTROL 

Vampires of the insect world

Need Help with Bed Bugs?

 

Bedbug pest control Sydney – Bed bugs are mostly associated with human beds where they are often found hiding during the daylight hours. Bed bugs come out to feed at night and are attracted to body heat. The bite of a bed bug itself is normally painless; however, about 80% of the population will develop an allergic reaction to the bite.

Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown, oval and flat. They are about 5-6 mm long or about the size of an apple seed.  In the early stages of their life cycle, bedbugs are almost transparent until they start to feed. As they feed their bodies swell and appear to be red in colour due to the blood they have ingested. An unfed bedbug would usually be a cream colour.

The Young:

 

  • Small and colour-less.
  • General body appearance of adults.
  • Turn red or purple when engorged with blood.

Adult:

 

  • 4-5 mm long.
  • Reddish-brown in colour.
  • Wingless (oval structure in their place)
  • Flat, oval shaped body.
  • Body appears to be shiny.
  • Piercing/Sucking mouth parts.

How many eggs can a bedbug lay?

What is the life cycle of a bedbug?

How are ants treated?

 

Pest Busters Sydney uses a product that is specifically designed to eradicate not just the surface ants but the entire nest of ants.

Internally

A low toxic bait is placed in areas where ant trails have been seen. The ants feed from the bait and carry it back with them to the nest which is designed to kill the colony and Queen.

Externally

External ant treatments are conducted with a product called Termidor. The benefit of this product is that as ants cannot detect that the spray is an insecticide they carry it back to the nest where the chemical is transferred among the other ants in the colony which in turn eradicates the entire nest of ants.

How can ants be prevented?

 

Ants usually come inside your home or business looking for food. They are attracted to sweet and sticky substances.

Internally

  • Clean up spills and food crumbs
  • Empty rubbish bins
  • Feed pets outside and wash their feed dishes daily
  • Store food in pest-proof containers
  • Rinse out jars and containers before placing them in rubbish/recycling bins

Externally

  • Keep trees and shrubs near your house trimmed
  • clear gutters and storm drains
  • Look out for new ant mounds or nests around your home
  • Keep garbage bags sealed
  • Keep the lid of the garbage bin closed
  • Seal around doors and windows where ants could enter
