Bedbugs were once a common pest in slums and run down properties however they have declined because of improved hygiene standards.
They are still regularly found throughout the country in buildings which have several different residents over a short space of time, for example, holiday camps, hostels and run down flats.
These pest look like small brown discs around the size of a match head. These pests cannot fly but can crawl almost vertical surfaces like bedposts.
Young bedbugs resemble the adults but are much smaller, these grow a stage at a time after each full feeding of blood they have. Fully grown specimens can last a year without a full meal.
Insecticidal sprays can be used to treat these pests however heat treatment of the premises, clothing and bedding will be necessary and should be done by a pest control contractor.
