STEP 1: Inspection & Planning
Our expert British Pest Control Association (BCPA) certified bed bug exterminator will survey your premises and confirm that your infestation is actually bed bugs. They will examine the extent of the infestation and then tailor the most cost-effective individual control and eradication plan which will be thoroughly explained to you including the use of chemicals and heat treatment.
STEP 2: First Chemical/Heat Treatment
All furniture and rooms throughout the house would be sprayed with professional strength insecticide. This will kill any bugs that come into contact with the spray but will not kill eggs as the insects inside are protected by their egg shell. Heat is a different chemical-free method; when the insects are heated up to around 45°C or more, their DNA starts to break down, effectively killing any bugs. This only needs 1 treatment unlike the chemical option which requires 3 treatments to break their cycle.
STEP 3: Second Chemical Treatment
Your technician would re-visit your property one week later and repeat the above process to ensure that any hatched bugs are exterminated. Due to the continuous laying of eggs, there will still be some eggs that haven't hatched and matured yet.
STEP 4: Third & Final Chemical Treatment
By the third visit, only young bugs that haven't sexually matured would be present and therefore would not have laid eggs. These young bugs would be eliminated by the third and final spray and your house would now be bedbug free!

London is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. It has expanded its population significantly year on year since 1988 and has led sociologists to estimate growth trends. According to population scientists, London is predicted to grow at the following rates:
• 9.20 million in 2021
• 9.54 million in 2026
• 9.84 million in 2031
• 10.11 million in 2036
This may be good news in terms of our economy, but these figures are alarming when it comes to controlling the spread of bed bugs. Just like foxes are problematic in urban areas, bed bugs are a huge problem in densely populated London.
Incidents of bed bug infestations have grown dramatically since the late 1990s and the spread of these parasites is partly due to a range of human behaviours that are uniquely linked to London.
Business owners travel to London from the four corners of the globe. Over 80 million passengers a year pass through Heathrow Airport alone and a large percentage of these travellers will stay in accommodation such as hotels.
Hotels are one of the primary modes of transporting bed bugs as they latch onto the occupiers luggage/bags, hitching a ride back to their unsuspecting host's home. Once inside, the female will lay eggs and over a period of 2 weeks the infestation will continually multiply. But what if you do not stay in hotels? Does this mean you are unlikely to get an infestation? Unfortunately not.
Public transport also plays a huge role due to the close and constant proximity of people, as well as the numerous nooks and crannies on trains and buses. You could be sitting on a train, reading a book and a bed bug from the lady's bag next to you could latch onto your coat. You then go home and hang your coat in your wardrobe and bingo, you now have the start of an infestation!
One of the main problems of preventing an infestation is lack of awareness. Due to the social stigma that surrounds bed bugs, people are embarrassed or reluctant to tackle the problem and hope that it will resolve itself.
Due to our busy schedules, less and less people are following basic hygiene steps such as airing bedding and vacuuming behind beds. All of these factors have led to the easy transmission of bed bugs, especially in London, but there are steps you can take to minimise your chances of bringing home an unwanted guest.
Pestcure Ltd are a professional pest control company and will assist in bed bug removal. Extermination can be achieved by chemical treatments and non toxic heat treatment.
Bed bugs prefer human blood but will also feed on animals. They inhabit residential properties due to their ability to travel inconspicuously. A bite from a bed bug can cause allergic reactions, discomfort, itching and affect mental wellbeing which is why removing bed bugs promptly is so important.
Bed bug infestations are often, but not always associated with poorer housing where the bugs could be transported on used bedding and furniture. Rental properties, hotels and hostels that are abundant in soft furnishings are more vulnerable due to the volume of people they host.
A bed bugs life cycle consists of numerous life stages. Fully grown, they are about the size of an apple seed and are attracted to the carbon dioxide that we exhale. Bed bugs produce a unique smell from their faeces and scent glands. It's possible they can ingest up to 7 times their body weight in one feed. They can also live up to one year without a blood meal or host in sight.
Thoroughness is needed and it's very important to find and treat their harbourage. Excrement may be seen close to their hiding spots and you may also see spots or smears. This is because the fully fed bed bugs will remove excess water before returning to their hiding spots which tend to be tight crevices. You may also see egg cases or eggs.
Bed bugs hide in bed frames, mattresses, skirting boards, wallpaper, wall switches, piping seams, furniture, clothing, window and door mouldings
cracks and crevices, electrical appliances.
