Treating Bed Bugs in Commercial Premises
Treatment techniques for commercial premises are similar to that of domestic premises, but can differ where large scale infestations are present. Care homes, hotels and other multi occupational buildings often require high standards of pest control work to rid them of these pests.
Bed bug populations are difficult to control and require a very professional approach. Spray treatments to the floor area, bed frames and wardrobes are required. This has to be very thorough. Sometimes mattresses or beds may have to be replaced. Often several treatments are required. Rooms have to be empty during treatment, and for two hours afterwards until dry.
What to look for:
Often blood spotting can be seen on the bed frames, headboards and on the bed sheets. They tend to bite areas uncovered at night. Bites are often unpleasant, but some people get bitten but show no evidence of bites. Live adult bed bugs are quite large, about the size of a drawing pin. The eggs, and juveniles range in size from less than one millimetre through to the adult size. In severe infestations they can infest the whole room, and number into the hundreds. In severe infestations blood spotting will also be on the walls, skirting boards and around door frames.
The cost for this type of treatment depends on many factors, including the number of bedrooms infested and the extent of the population. For a free survey and no obligation quotation please call us to arrange.
Monitoring for Bed Bugs
This can be carried out as part of a contract where required. It provides documented evidence of pest free environments, and can catch re-infestations before they become large scale infestations.
