BED BUG CONTROL

For bed bug control knowing about bed bugs is very important. The term “bug” is slang for the insect. Used technically, however, it refers to the thousands of species of the order Hemiptera, “true bugs,” which includes bedbugs. Most species of true bugs feed on plants; many feed on animals, other insects in particular; some are aquatic. Feeding is accomplished when the bugs pierce tissues with slender thread-like stylets (located in a “beak” on the front of the insect’s head) and suck up liquids. Bedbugs are indeed true bugs that suck blood.

COMMON BED BUG (Cimex lectularius)

This wingless bedbug, a notable blood-sucking parasite of humans throughout written history, has moved with us all over the world. The bedbug’s adaptation to humans is so complete their bites are nearly painless. In the United States, bedbugs have been one of the most important pests. They were disliked more than cockroaches, but DDT so effectively used for bed bug control in the late 1940s that they are of minor importance today.

Bedbugs

Bedbugs are dark reddish brown, oval and very flat. Adults are almost 1 /4 inch long and become mature in about four weeks when host blood is available and temperature, humidity, and harborage are favorable. If hosts are scarce, bedbugs can survive for a year without feeding.

Hosts

Hosts include many species of vertebrates besides humans, including poultry, rodents, dogs, and cats. They infest shelters along hiking trails and cabins of summer camps and parks. The surprise occurrence of bedbugs in urban homes often can be traced to these recreation facilities.

The bed bugs are a type of chestnut-brown insects which have a flat shape from top to bottom. The size of the adult bed bugs is around 1/4th inch in length. The bed bugs are found to grow multiple numbers of times by a process termed moulting. The baby bed bugs are known as nymphs and they resemble the adults in every way. The size of the nymphs is much smaller than the adult bugs. The nymphs require a total of five moults to metamorphose into the adult bugs. In each phase of this metamorphosis, the bed bug must feed on a blood meal to convert into the next phase. Though the adult bug can feed only once in a week; the nymph has to feed on blood meal several times during their four-month-long life-cycle.

Eggs

Eggs are deposited several times each day in protected places near the host’s sleeping area; several hundred might be deposited. Hatching occurs in one to two weeks, depending on temperature—the warmer the weather, the shorter the incubation time.

Nymphs

Nymphs, tiny and colorless at first, go through five molts, taking a blood meal between molts. This nymphal period can last from several weeks under favorable conditions to as long as a year when hosts are unavailable and temperatures are low.

Adults

Undergoing gradual metamorphosis, the bedbugs mate soon after becoming adults. Adult bedbugs prefer humans as hosts. Though they have been known to harbor several human diseases, there has been no record of disease transmission.

Harborage

Under normal conditions, bedbugs feed at night. Flat bodies allow them to hide in cracks in beds, bedside furniture, dressers, wallboards, door and window frames, behind pictures, under loose wallpaper, and in rooms near host sleeping areas.

Treatment Steps

Step – 1 : Heat Treatment

This environmentally-friendly process has now been adopted in the industry for bed bug control. Heat treatment is widely regarded as one of the most effective solutions for bed bugs.

Portable heaters, either electric or propane-fired, are used to gradually heat the ambient air within rooms to above 120º F while monitoring with strategically placed temperature sensors and infrared thermometers.

This high temperature is then held for 1 ½ to 3 hours or more depending on the level of infestation, and relative level of clutter in the treated rooms.

Added Features:

Heat treatment is a low risk option for customers (and their pets), and the environment due to the minimal use of pesticides.

The service can be completed in just one day rather than over the course of a few weeks, and it’s effective against all life stages of a bed bug.


Step – 2 : Conventional Treatment

This environmentally-friendly process has now been adopted in the industry for bed bug control. Heat treatment is widely regarded as one of the most effective solutions for bed bugs.

Portable heaters, either electric or propane-fired, are used to gradually heat the ambient air within rooms to above 120º F while monitoring with strategically placed temperature sensors and infrared thermometers.

This high temperature is then held for 1 ½ to 3 hours or more depending on the level of infestation, and relative level of clutter in the treated rooms.

Added Features:

Heat treatment is a low risk option for customers (and their pets), and the environment due to the minimal use of pesticides.

The service can be completed in just one day rather than over the course of a few weeks, and it’s effective against all life stages of a bed bug.


Step – 3 : Steam Treatment

High temperatures are lethal to most insects provided they cannot quickly escape to a cooler location. The temperatures produced by portable steam units are more than sufficient to kill bed bugs and their eggs upon contact.

Steaming allows us to treat all surfaces of mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture, which are often restricted with insecticides.

Added Features

Steaming tends to get bed bugs to move out of deeper recesses as the temperature begins to rise, making them more likely to expose themselves or cross any applied insecticide.

Using steam treatment, means there is less need for applying pesticides.


Step – 4 : Freezing

Freezing is also an option for eliminating bed bugs from some items which can not be treated conventionally

As a homeowner, you can action this solution by using your home freezer.

What are bed bugs ?

Bed bugs are small, crawling parasitic insects, which feed on warm blooded animals. Cimex lectularius is the bed bug, which feeds on blood from humans, giving us painful bites. Adults are circa 5mm long. Before feeding bed bugs are a flattened oval shape and light brown, but become rounder and darker after feeding - as they fill up on blood.

Bed bugs come out at night, attracted by the warmth of our bodies and the carbon dioxide in our breath. Which is why they are often found in places where people tend to sleep or rest, hence their name. They can also be found hiding in cracks and crevices during the day.
