Bed Bugs Management :
Control of bed bugs requires the cooperation of the building owner or premises manager, working along side the Reddy’s pest control technician. If an person suspects a bed bug infestation they should first ensure there is no chance of spreading the problem from room to room. Bed bugs are great hitchhikers, so do not spread the infestation by moving bedding, furniture etc from one room to another. In extreme cases it may be necessary to isolate all equipment and materials that come into contact with the infected room. Even minor infestations from a chance transfer can become a major problem.
Treatment Program : Bed Bugs
- Inspection of the premises, room by room
- Treatment of the affected rooms
- Follow up inspection of treated areas
The essential first step in Bed Bug management is pest identification and determining the extent and level of infestation. Site inspection is crucial. When this is known the Reddy’s pest control technician can assess the treatment options and time needed for treatment.
After inspection and before treatment, a wash down of surfaces affected with blood spotting not only improves the appearance but also allows a follow up inspection to be done with greater confidence. In extreme cases it may be better to discard the mattress - burning or tipping is recommended, again ensuring that other items do not become infested. Care must be taken when moving affected items, sealing them in plastic bags before they leave the room is recommended. Bed linen should be washed in hot water followed by a hot drier. Sensitive materials can be placed in a freezer allowing enough time for the entire volume of the item to reach the temperature of the freezer.
Treatment involves the direct use of registered pesticide to harbourages such as mattress, base, slats, carpet edges, tack board below carpet , cracks & crevices, wardrobes and cupboards.
Follow Up :
The premises would then need to be treated for 3 times (Monthly once) until the infestation dead. Reapplication would be necessary if live bedbugs were found in the premises.
