Bed bug control Worthing

Worthing is a seaside district town on the south coast of England and borough in West Sussex, located south of London and just 10 miles west of Brighton. Worthing, Brighton and Littlehampton are forming a conurbation, which is among the top 15 most populous areas in the UK. There is evidence of a settlement in the area dating back to the Stone Age, as well as the greatest concentration of flint mines in the United Kingdom from this era, which are some of the oldest in Europe. Centuries ago Worthing has been a fishing hamlet until the late 18th century when the town developed into a seaside resort with a beautiful seafront with restaurants and shops, theatres and cinemas, Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, art venues, nightlife spots and clubs.

In all areas of Worthing and the surrounding towns we provide dedicated bed bug extermination and control nearly 24 hours a day, seven days a week without surcharge for work during the weekends. We are members of all pest control associations in the UK and most importantly the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), which is the leading pest control association in the UK, covering nearly all possible standards in our industry. From the first call until the post treatment procedures and care we have individual approach towards each case, our staff is friendly and very knowledgeable with bed bugs and other pests as well. The technicians are able to inspect, risk assess and treat on the same visit, using the most efficient and cost-effective methods for bed bug eradication and control.

The process

Before we send out one of our pest control operators (PCOs) we always ask the customer to prepare the property. We have successfully treated various types of vehicles and lots of businesses in the hospitality and transport industries. In all cases we individually tailor our advice but there are three main steps to follow, especially in domestic cases of bed bug infestation. After the preparations we inspect, risk assess and usually treat on the same visit the whole property with all the furniture there, even if it is not affected. Our bed bug hunters strictly follow the best practices and are always ready to perform a treatment with the best active ingredients for professional-use-only, as well as the most effective integrated heat methods, such as the dry steam.

The first part of the preparations includes removing all storage from the floor level in the bedrooms or sleeping area, sitting and living areas too. The items that have been under the beds, for example, should be inspected visually making sure that there are no signs on the bed bugs before moving them in plastic bags or boxes, ideally. The bed bugs do not tend to crawl up and hide in clothes, as they cannot go through the fabrics and prefer wooden cracks and crevices, cardboard and paper stuff. Hanging clothes, upper and top shelves, upper drawers should not be affected, unless commercial sprays or smoke bombs have been used.

The next preparation procedure is the hot wash of the bedding – the sheets and cases only, not the pillows and duvet/blanket on 60C degrees Celsius. Delicate clothes and fabrics that cannot be hot-washed could be inspected and shaken thoroughly somewhere safe, although it is very unlikely that the bed bugs are hiding there. The last step is a thorough vacuum cleaning of the whole floor in the property, soft and wooden furniture too. The vacuum contents have to be sealed and disposed of in a safe manner afterwards. The booking is confirmed as soon as the property is ready to be inspected and treated with the most effective integrated methods, in most cases a combination of methods for best results. The heat and residual spray with professional-use-only active ingredients is the best approach and we specialise in such treatments. Those methods and tools combined with the knowledge, experience and effort by our technicians produces complete extermination of bed bugs with 1-2 treatment in nearly all cases. Some cases, where more treatments are required, we offer heavy subsequent discounts and free treatments, subject to our T&C.
