Troubled by Bedbugs? Get Rid of Bedbugs. Our Bedbugs Treatment Guarantees Results, Giving You A Good Night’s Sleep!
Bedbugs are deemed to be bad roommates as they cause severe itch and discomfort to anyone in the household. These tiny ‘blood sucking’ insects can cause sleepless nights by biting you and sucking blood whilst you are asleep.
Bedbugs are a major international problem and are the number 1 pest in the world now. It is becoming a huge problem for many PCOs (Pest Control Operators) and they are generally considered to be one of the hardest bug infestations to get rid of in homes and established properties.
Many household and business owners are asking, ‘So how do we get rid of this pest?’
Appearance of Bed Bugs
Bedbugs are flat, reddish-brown, oval insects about 4 – 5mm long. They become swollen and reddish after feeding on human blood.
Control of Bed Bugs
Bedbugs harbour in cracks and crevices during the day and come out at night to feed. They are attracted to their hosts primarily by carbon dioxide, secondarily by warmth and also by other chemicals. They can be introduced into a structure via second-hand furniture or in the belongings or luggage of someone who has been living in a bedbug infested environment.
Upon a thorough inspection of your property, PestBusters will carry out treatment against Bedbugs in all infested areas and items. Bedding items should be dried thoroughly before re-use. Infant and sick persons bedding and bed frames should not be treated. They should be replaced with un-infested items. After insecticide treatment of the house, a high standard of cleanliness must be maintained for a long-term management of bedbugs.

Vampires are not just creatures of myth, they do exist – they just don’t wear capes and (more recently), sparkle in the sunlight. Like vampires, bedbugs are almost immortal, able to survive over a year without a single blood meal. They are not usually seen, creeping around silently in the darkness, consuming your blood. The only evidence to suggest that you have been bitten is the occasional rash and bloodstained sheets, which by that time the bedbugs are already far and long gone. Is it even possible to destroy an enemy that has almost mythological powers, shrouded in mystery akin to the deadly vampire?
