The process

We, at Bed Bug Hunters, assess each case individually, always trying to find a long-term solution to the problem. Bed bugs spread with one’s infested luggage in most cases, mostly when we travel abroad. Since we know exactly how is the spread happening, we know how to reduce the risk and issue professional advice, regarding the risk of bed bug introduction and tips on prevention. In the majority of cases we achieve complete bed bug extermination with one up to two treatments, compared to the official benchmark in the UK of three full chemical treatments, issued by the BPCA. Still, bed bug control like any other pest control service is a matter of chance, so we advise our customers to be patient and follow strictly our advice and recommendations.

Please note that our bed bug treatments work perfectly well with a wide range of insects, such as carpet beetle and its larvae, cockroaches, fleas, flies and other flying insects, fabric and food moth, spiders, woodworms and furniture beetles, stored product insects (SPIs) and others.

At the first stage of the process of bed bug removal we advise our customers how to prepare the property. There are few steps to follow, which do not take more than an hour to complete, without much of a hassle, except for the cases with very cluttered properties. The preparation involves decluttering underneath the beds and the floor level in the bedrooms, stripping off the beds and washing the bed sheets, covers and cases on 60 degrees Celsius. Any clothes or fabrics that cannot be hot washed could be inspected only, as bed bugs cannot go through the fabrics. Vacuum cleaning of the floor and the furniture that could be affected by the bed bugs is the final bit of the preparations. Please make sure that you dispose of the vacuum bag or the contents in a safe manner by sealing them.

The next stage is the inspection and risk assessment of the property by our vetted and thoroughly trained pest technicians. They always take into consideration all factors and gather all the information regarding the bed bug problem before inspecting all potential hideouts of the insect. The bed bugs are social creatures and follow a pattern when nesting, which is making it easier for our technicians to locate the source of the infestation. When the customer is happy with all the findings and the risk assessments we can go ahead with the treatment straight away. In nearly all cases the methods include dry steam, as a targeted heat treatment, or heat with hot air, followed by insecticide spray with professional-use-only product. Those treatments are showing the best results, performed by our thorough and very knowledgeable pest technicians.
