Bed Bugs are the most annoying cosmopolitan pests, attacking all, whether hygiene plays a role or not. They are hitch-hikers and very common in public transport, hospitals, theatres, hotels, hostels, etc. They move from place to place along with people’s clothes, baggage or even the laptops. Since they are mostly found in beds they are aptly named ‘Bed Bugs’. During the day, bed bugs hide as their flattened shape lets them squeeze into narrow places in bed frames, headboards, in bedside furniture, behind pictures & switch plates, behind baseboards, under buttons on mattresses, in box springs and in other cracks & crevices and feed on human blood at night. The bed bug injects an anti-coagulant chemical into the bloodstream of its host which prevents the blood from clotting, which allows the bed bugs to suck out the blood until it is fully engorged. Next day morning, you can notice dots of blood in a line on bed sheets. These blood stains have a very bad odor.
The Treatment - BBMS (Bed Bug Management Service)Bed Bug Management Services consists of a thorough inspection of the entire premise. A thorough insecticide spray is given to all cracks and crevices in the furniture, bed joints and other fixtures, giving special attention to mattress beading and folds. Since bed bug eggs are resistant to insecticide penetration, a second bed bug management treatment is followed up within a fortnight to control new hatchlings.
