Where do bedbugs come from?

What are Bed bugs?

Knowing you have bed bugs can be a traumatic experience, the knowledge that whilst you sleep something is feeding from your blood and waking up to find bites and rashes on your skin.

Many people who are bitten by bedbugs often find themselves waiting their turn at a Drs surgery to get relief from the allergic reaction from the bites and/or even to determine what is biting them.

We have found that many customers are not sure if they are being bitten by bedbugs, mosquitoes, fleas or some type of mite and probably over half of our customers have informed us they have visited the Dr to find out the cause of the rash, reaction or bites

Pest Busters Sydney does not take any chances when it comes to your residence or business.

What Attracts Bed Bugs?

 

Bedbugs are attracted to the carbon dioxide we breathe out, therefore even through the darkest hours of the night they are still able to find their feeding host!

Bedbugs are difficult to eradicate once they have found their way into your home.

It’s a common misconception that there is a relation to cleanliness when the truth is that any of us can get them at any time. It does not matter how clean your home is, as bedbugs do not discriminate on the cleanliness of your house or business, some of the top hotels in the world have found themselves under attack from bedbugs.

Bedbugs simply travel from place to place and they don’t discriminate based on how clean or dirty you are.

Bedbugs have been found on trains, cabs, in cars, in homes, offices, hotels & schools.

While, it’s important to maintain a clean environment to prevent ample hiding places, it has nothing to do with getting them in the first place.

Pest Busters Sydney do not recommend trying DYI treatments as it is a process that can be stressful, tedious and chances are you will not be able to find all of them or their eggs, which means the infestation will continue.

Bedbugs have very agile bodies that can slide into the tiniest crevices in your home, such as around your kitchen, around your baseboards near your bed and even in the cracks in your floor.

They can virtually be anywhere and they can live for an entire year without food, which makes them extremely difficult to deal with.

DO NOT Prolong the treatment of bedbugs as a small infestation can quickly grow into a larger one.

 What is the LIFE CYCLE of a bedbug?

 

The life cycle of a bedbug changes & the smallest bedbug can latch onto your clothing, crawl inside your bag or laptop and hitch a ride to a new location.

Bedbugs can often go unnoticed until there is a more severe problem when people are waking with bites and start to see blood splatters on their sheets.
