Bed Bug Heat Treatment
Bed bugs can occur even in clean homes, and despite the stigma, it does not mean that your home is dirty. Cimex lectularius are the parasitic insects commonly known as bed bugs, though due to their preference for any quiet, dark areas close to food sources, they can be found on bedside cabinets, skirting boards, windowsills, hems of curtains, picture frames, and sofas, as well as bedsprings, bedding, headboards and mattresses.
What is the food source for bed bugs? They feed on your body, and are mostly active at night, just when you are sleeping. As it is difficult to physically see bed bugs, if you are suspicious of an infestation, you will probably notice bites on your body first, which may be itchy and appear as blisters.
As they can be found in so many places, bed bugs can be difficult to remove, but at M.R. Pest Control, we have over twenty years of experience exterminating bed bugs and other pests. Our heat treatment can tackle bed bugs at all stages of their lifecycle without using any toxic chemicals, so all will be safe to use once the process is complete.
Rodent Control London
Many of us think of bed bugs as a problem which was eradicated from the developed world many decades ago. Others imagine they are only to be found in dirty and squalid living conditions. In reality, neither of these characterisations is accurate.
A bed bug is just as happy in a clean London home as a dirty one, and since they are very talented at hiding themselves away in the daytime, they may persist even when a home is regularly and thoroughly cleaned. What is more, bed bug infestations have been on the rise in London and other developed world cities in recent years, and the complete removal of these pests can sometimes prove trickier than you would imagine.
Pest Removal London
Easy international travel and centrally heated homes which remain warm all year round have led to the reintroduction of the bug to many European cities. The Latin name for the common bed bug is Cimex lectularius. These tiny insects hide in warm, dark places, and feed on human blood while their hosts are asleep. It is for this reason they are often found in beds, and may hide in the folds of mattresses, and inside bedsprings and headboards.
They have also been found in bedside furniture, under skirting boards, and even in seats on public transport. Effective removal of a bed bug infestation is very difficult once a colony has become established. Pesticides which were historically used to kill the insects are no longer effective as modern strains have become resistant to them. And while some other insect species, such as ants, are natural enemies of the bed bug, using them in a domestic situation may just result in swapping one infestation for another.
How would you know if your London home had a bed bug infestation? Finding the insects to be present in significant numbers is one obvious clue. You may spot them when looking inside beds, or under mattresses or other items in the bedroom. Or you may detect their characteristic smell, which has been described as similar to that of rotten raspberries. Another clue to the presence of these pests is if you suffer persistent skin rashes or blisters, although not everyone is allergic to bed bug bites.
As you can imagine, this issue is a headache for householders, and can be a big problem for owners of hotels and B&Bs. It is important to remember that the removal of all the adult insects from your London property does not constitute removal of the colony. Bed bug eggs and larvae can be hidden in the tiniest of crevices, and as they mature they can go for several months between feeds.
The accepted current process for the complete removal of Cimex lectularius is a dry steam treatment as available from MR Pest Control of London. This treatment involves using superheated steam and non toxic chemicals to treat effected areas, killing all the pests at any stage of their development.

Have you been waking up in the morning with bites over your body? These could be itchy and look like large blisters. They might be anywhere on your body and will be a few inches apart. You might think that you have fleas but it’s far more likely that this is the work of bedbugs. Bed Bugs are one of the worst pest problems that you can have.
They feed on your blood and are incredibly difficult to get rid of. To handle them effectively you need an expert, highly qualified team and that’s where we come in. We’re the number one bed bug control Middlesex service and will help you beat the bugs for good!
Do You Have Bed Bugs?
Most people think that if you can’t see bed bugs, you don’t have them. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and it’s actually quite rare to spot a bed bug on your property. It’s far more likely that you notice the bites first and never see the bugs themselves. When they are not feeding, bed bugs are tiny and thinner than a typical credit card. They can hide in the box springs of mattresses or cracks in the walls. You won’t notice them biting you either. Bed bugs release a numbing chemical into your body which is one of the reasons why they cause such nasty marks.
If you do notice the bites we’ve described, then it’s best to overturn your mattress. It’s unlikely you’ll find the bugs themselves but it is possible that you’ll see little blood spots where they have left marks from feeding.
If you notice a sign like this, contact us immediately. Don’t wait another night for the bugs to visit you.
