Bed bugs are parasites that infest our homes, especially our beds and mattresses. They feed on human blood and their bites usually leave itchy red welts. They are one of the most difficult pests to get rid of on your own, so it’s crucial to enlist the help of a professional bed bug exterminator when you have them. Without the help of an experienced bed bug removal specialist, an infestation can linger for months on end, but we can help with that! The bed bug removal & control team here at Rentokil, formerly OnSite Pest Control is here to share expert information on bed bug habits, prevention, treatment, and more.

Getting Rid of Bed Bugs

The best way to get rid of bed bugs is to trust in the services of a professional bed bug exterminator. A quick online search will yield loads of results telling you how to get rid of bed bugs permanently on your own, but the truth is that these methods are all spot treatments. Bed bugs can hide in the deep cracks and corners of your home, so an exhaustive treatment plan is necessary to ensure that your infestation is dealt with entirely. Professional heat treatments are the best method of bed bug removal for their ability to eliminate all active bed bugs and eggs using non-toxic and non-damaging methods with high first-time success rates.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

Bed bugs are often confused for carpet beetles, and vice versa. A professional bed bug exterminator will be able to assess your home and tell you what kind of pests you’re dealing with. Thankfully, there are several psychical characteristics of bed bugs that can help you tell them apart from other insects:

  1. They have flat, 5 mm long, oval-shaped bodies with no wings
  2. They have six legs
  3. They have a light brown colour that changes to rust-red after they feed
  4. They have large antennae and mouthparts with a squat head
