Bed Bugs are a public health pest that has plagued mankind for centuries. In recent times there has been a resurgence of this pest. Bed bugs control must be an ongoing activity for many businesses and in some homes.
Bed bugs are a major pest of hostels and backpackers, motels, hotels, restaurants, boats, trains, aircraftÂ and even private homes and apartments. Their bites cause irritation and even allergic reactions, while the stigma associated with theirÂ presence can cause loss of income in accommodation premises through both bad reputation and having rooms out of service. Bed bug control is an ongoing activity for accommodation premises.
Bed bugs hide in cracks and crevices during normal daylight hours (e.g. folds of mattresses, coils of springs, upholstery of chairs, cracks in furniture).Â They FavourÂ harbourages close to food source.Â Heavy infestations will hide in more exposed places (e.g. behind loose wallpaper, behind pictures on wall, under door and window frames, in lighting fixtures). Key to harbourages: darkness, isolation and protection. Bed bug control strategies focus on this type of environment.
