Bed bug control Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is the principal settlement of the Borough of Milton Keynes, located in Buckinghamshire, about 50 miles north-west of London. Back in the 1960’s, the UK Government decided to develop “New Cities” in the South East of England, in order to reduce the housing congestion in London. Milton Keynes was planned to be the biggest one, with a target population of 250,000 residents. Since then, the settlement has been one of the fastest growing economies in the UK, with approximately 90% employment in the service industry and 10% in manufacturing.

The process

The process involves a few preparations to be done prior to our visit, potentially, and then our technicians inspect, risk assess and usually treat the property on the same visit. The first step of the preparation for the bed bug treatment is to make sure that there is no storage underneath the beds, especially in the affected bedrooms or areas, including the sitting areas in the property. Any type of storage, apart from sealed plastic containers or air-tight bags, should be manually inspected for the presence of bed bugs. They tend to hide in cardboard boxes, wooden cracks and crevices, papers and other natural insulation materials, rarely in clothes. Exposed personal items and storage should be kept away from the floor level, or if on the floor, it has to be enclosed in plastic boxes or bags.

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.

The next step is to remove the bedding and wash it on 60C, without the actual pillows, duvet or blanket. The bed bugs cannot penetrate the fabrics, so they cannot be inside those. Delicate fabrics, which are susceptible to hot wash, could be inspected and shaken outside the property, just as a precaution. The final bit of the preparation is a thorough vacuum cleaning of the floor and all the furniture that could be affected by the bed bugs. It is important to seal the vacuum bag or the contents of the hoover afterwards and bin them in a safe manner.

As soon as the property is set for the treatment our customers could book a slot for the treatment, which is available on the same visit of the inspection. Our technician assesses all general and site risks upon arrival, inspects all possible hideouts of the bed bugs and then he is ready to share his opinion and advice with the customer. If we have a green light, we could start and treat the property within 1-2 hours on average with only 3-4 hours downtime after the process. In general, the property is safe once the insecticide is settled down to the residue, as the only drawback is that the floor in the property should not be vacuumed thoroughly for about 2-3 weeks after the treatment. This is due to the fact that the bed bugs are getting slowly poisoned over the course of those 2-3 weeks.
