Bed Bugs Pest Control

In Australia, bedbugs are most commonly found in budget accommodation where there is a turn-over of tourists, especially backpackers. They are transported with the people’s luggage and clothing but not on the person. They may also be found in a building if they are brought in, in infested second-hand furniture.

The presence of bedbugs can be detected by bites, dots of blood on the sheets or a sickly sweet odour

The aim of the treatment by your Pest Manager is simple. All harbourages within 2-3m of the bed such as bed linen, mattress, furniture and curtains must be located and treated.

It is not possible to know if someone is a ‘bedbug carrier’. Premises such as backpackers should be inspected regularly for signs of infestation to avoid the costs and inconvenience associated with complaints of bedbug attacks.
