What are bed bugs?

This pest is a true bug that has evolved over millions of years, and now feeds largely on human blood.  They will also feed on domestic pets.

Bed bugs were virtually eradicated in the UK by 1950, after the development of pesticides. However, in recent years, they have actually been making a fast come back across the country, including areas of Suffolk, and no place has been immune from their spreading.

Several of the factors for this increase are:

  • Increased worldwide travel
  • A general decrease in the use of residual pesticides
  • Movement of infested furniture and residents in between rental properties
  • Failure to immediately identify and deal with infestations, causing migration of the Bed Bugs
  • Central heating, giving ideal, year round breeding conditions

Bed bugs can easily infest business premises as well as domestic dwellings, including hotels, healthcare facilities, prisons and public transport.  The means by which they are brought into an environment are numerous, and include:

  • a visitor bringing infested travel luggage or by means of their clothing
  • the person’s baggage or clothes becoming infested during a trip
  • the introduction of infested second hand furniture, specifically sofas, mattresses and beds
  • the migration of bed bugs from an infested , adjacent property

How will I know if I have bed bugs?

The first that many people know of an infestation is when they discover blood spots on their bed linen and bites. However significant numbers of the population do not experience a reaction to the bite, and so an infestation problem could go many months before various other signs such as eggs, shed skins or bed bugs themselves are seen.

The longer an infestation goes unattended, the more challenging it is to get rid of. Consequently if you live in a higher risk location or think you might have been exposed to Bed Bugs in other places you ought to inspect your mattress, bed and surrounding furnishings for indications of Bed Bugs at the very least once a month.
