Bed-bugs have become a big problem not just across the United Kingdom but worldwide. The small brown disc like parasitic insects spread easily. Therefore if you suspect you have a bed-bug problem you need to deal with it quickly. Because bed-bugs are notoriously difficult to treat it is important that you call a professional pest control company immediately as if left their numbers will rapidly increase and treatment could end up being a lot more expensive.
Having bed-bugs is nothing to be embarrassed about as it can affect people from all walks of life and is no reflection on poor hygiene or uncleanliness. It is possible to pick up a bed-bug in a public place or even on public transport and once on your clothes it can be carried back to your home. Because of the easy way they are transported around they have become major problems for businesses where they have a lot of different people coming and going like hotels, guest houses, caravan parks and even care homes. Bed-bugs have also been transported into new locations through purchases of second hand furniture, bedding and clothes.

Bed Bug Treatment
The bed bug treatment will involve the use of a bed bug spray. This will be an insecticide with a long residual makeup. The bed bug spray will kill bed bugs that come into contact with it. As the insecticide stays present for a long period of time it will kill bed bugs when they come out of their hiding place to feed.
