Like head lice, bed bugs have become taboo due to myths associated with this pest. Bed Bugs do not discriminate between clean and dirty spaces- they will set up home wherever they can feed and hide. Another misconception is that if you find you have a bedbug infestation you have to destroy all infested clothing and furniture. Totally untrue.

Bed Bugs Facts
Bedbugs are small, oval-shaped insects that live on the blood of humans or animals. An adult can grow to the size of an apple seed. They do not fly but they can move over floors, walls and ceilings very, very quickly. Bed Bugs are a nuisance and do not restrict their breeding activities or infestations to beds alone. They are found in carpets, house furniture and bedroom bedding, such as sheets, pillows and other linen.
Over the past few years, Australia has encountered a rise in the infestation of the bed bugs. As a result, there has also been an insurgence of bedbug management devices and products. Much like the myths, not all of these devices are effective in bed bug pest control.

Know what to look for
Bed Bugs are a growing problem on the Sunshine Coast. They are easily spread and can be difficult to treat. Early detection and treatment are key to the successful bed bug control.
Bedbugs will often lurk in small cracks and crevices. Although they aren't known to transmit disease or pose any serious health risks, these parasites can leave itchy and unsightly bites.
Keep an eye out for these bed bug infestation signs:
Itchy Red Spots: Bites are typically small, red and itchy spots on the skin. A hallmark of a bed bug infestation is clear and well-defined bite patterns on your skin. These bites will look different from those of fleas and mosquitoes.
Odour: Bed Bugs release pheromones, that can become quite strong when large numbers of the parasite are present. If you detect an unfamiliar musty smell in your home, it may be a bed bug infestation.
Blood Stains: Although waking up with sheets speckled with blood may be alarming, discovering that beg bugs are the cause is even more so. You may unconsciously squash bed bugs while you are in bed, resulting in blood spots. If this is discovered, a bed bug inspection may be required. All our Pest inspections are in compliance with the requirements of the Australian Standard.
Dark spots and skin on mattresses and walls: Bed bugs will leave faecal stains on your bedding and walls. These stains will smear when touched and have an unpleasant smell. Adolescent bed bugs will shed at least 5 times before reaching maturity, so it is likely you will see bed bug skins if you have an infestation.
A bed bug treatment programme is the best way to treat a bed bug infestation.
Our certified technicians are extensively trained and experienced professionals. They understand the nesting and feeding habits of bed bugs and use this knowledge to choose the correct bed bug control methods for effective management.
Bed Bug Pest Control and Your Business
Leave no mattress unturned!
A bed bug infestation can be detrimental to your business that offers accommodation and transportation, as they are known to be sources of harbouring and spreading bed bugs. It takes just one pest sighting for the cleanliness of your establishment to be questioned. With a constant stream of guests and clients, a bed bug infestation is inevitable. A hands-on approach is beneficial to the effective treatment and management of bed bug infestations.
If left untreated, bed bugs can quickly spread and take over. Many business owners are not aware of how difficult it is to contain and treat an existing bed bug infestation once it occurs. When it comes to minimising the risk of bed bugs a quick and aggressive response is crucial to contain the infestation. Failing to take immediate action opens your business up to the greater risk of property damage and loss of revenue. Regular pest inspections are also key to effective bed bug control. If an infestation is caught in the early stages, potential damages and risks are far less.
Ensure staff and workers are well trained and follow bed bug preventative measures. Ensure that staff checks all rooms for bed bugs while they clean, as bed bugs can be carried on and spread through various personal items. Furthermore, regularly lifting mattresses to ensure bugs are not hiding underneath are key to bed bug management and prevention. Linen and bedding should be regularly washed to ensure that hiding bed bugs are removed and killed.
Zero Termite and Pest offer quality commercial pest control services to ensure that early detection, prevention and treatment occurs. Contact us today for more information on Commercial Pest Control for your business.
