Our Treatment approach
As with Inner West Pest Control's other treatments, our Bed Bug pest control services are child, pet, and plant friendly. This gives you the peace of mind that treatments won't affect you or those you care about most in your home, all while being just as effective as other treatments. While they won't hurt your family and pets, they will get rid of your bed bug problem effectively and quickly.
Since we're locals and locally owned, we understand the risks and typical issues encountered by households in the Inner West, particularly with the typical densely packed, aging properties that are common in the area. As with all our treatments, we target the problem directly, and work to ensure a high quality service that is tailored specifically to the needs and risks of your Inner Western house. We'll even consult with you on weekends or outside business hours to limit your inconvenience.
Inner West Pest Control offers extensive pest control; we don't want to leave a single bed bug hiding anywhere. Because of this, we recommend that you take steps before your treatment with us to increase the ease of the pest control service, and protect your own privacy.
Place everything you can in the room outside in black plastic bags directly in the sun. With published thermal death points of 40-45 degrees depending on exposure time the aim of the game here is to heat everything up for several hours to as hot as possible.
Remove larger room items and wrap in black plastic as per above. If wrapping your mattress, make sure you turn the mattress over several times during the day to distribute the heat as evenly as possible (we would always recommend a bed bug mattress cover).
Our prices are based on having a clear room to treat. If the room is not clear, we'll have to go through drawers and cupboards, pull apart beds, and move furniture. Not only is this uncomfortable for you, but our prices will have to increase to compensate for the longer service time.
About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs have long been a problem for inner-western Sydney homes. and for greater Sydney. Beg bugs are small, wingless insects that appear red/brown in colour. While the bed bug is not known to carry any disease, they can cause nightly irritation in the form of welts from their bites. On top of this, bed frames, mattresses, and sheets can be soiled by their droppings. For longer-term infestations, you may be able to identify a "buggy" smell.
A common misconception is that bed bugs only affect older houses that are not looked after/cleaned. This is false - in Sydney, bed bugs can impact everything from older houses to new, upmarket housing. And since they can easily move from place to place in trunks, suitcases, and furniture (amongst others), they can be particularly hard to protect against. Returning travellers may carry bed bugs from less-than-reputable tourist destinations, or guests may carry them when they're visiting your home.
Bed bugs may also be hard to find as their survival is reliant on hiding in crevices - including skirting boards, architraves, pictures, head boards, mattresses, bed frames, and picture rails.Typically, the first sign of infection are bites on the skin in the morning that last for 7-9 days, and appear like mosquito bites. They will leave black dots of their droppings on the mattress or other bed surroundings - including the head board.
Bed bugs lay eggs in batches of about 10, creating a total of 200 to 500 eggs in the female's lifetime. Eggs take anywhere from 7 to 30 days to hatch, but the typical hatch-time is 10 days. The life cycle of a bed bug from egg to adult can range anywhere from 45 days to a year. And since the adult bed bug can last up to a year without a blood meal, simply not sleeping on a mattress to deprive them of food will not solve the issue.
Bed bugs can be particularly difficult to remove. Since they hide within the bed and surrounding furniture, most do-it-yourself solutions do not attack the source of the problem directly. Additionally, their quick breeding time means that a single bed bug left behind can quickly turn into a second infestation. This is why we always recommend the use of a professional service for a truly comprehensive extermination solution.
