Keeping your home clean and tidy won’t kill bedbugs, but will help you detect them early on. This in turn makes it easier to control the problem.
If you think you have bedbugs, please follow these steps:
You must carry out the following preparations before the treatment:
Remove all bed linen from the beds to be treated.
Take down curtains and nets.
Empty wardrobes and drawers in the rooms to be treated, especially divan bed drawers.
Remove stored items from the floors and clear everything from under the bed.
Wash all bed linen, curtains, clothing and other washable items at the hottest temperature recommended by the manufacturer or have it dry cleaned before it is used again or put away.
Clean the rooms to be treated thoroughly. Empty the vacuum cleaner directly into the dustbin or change the bag after cleaning.
Make sure rooms to be treated are clear enough for us to move the beds and furniture easily.
People and pets must leave the rooms being treated and not be allowed to return until the insecticide is dry.
If you do not make these preparations we will not carry out the treatment and you will lose your fee.

Fully developed bedbugs are usually no longer than half a centimetre long, and are reddish brown in colour. They have long antennae and large eyes. They can crawl well over all surfaces, but cannot fly.
Bedbugs hide away in cracks and crevices, usually close to where you sleep, and come out at night.
A bedbug bite often causes a hard, whitish swelling. This is different from the flea bite, which leaves a dark red spot surrounded by a reddened area. Different people react differently to bites, and some become immune. Infested rooms will often have an unpleasant almond-like smell.
