Do you live in Brisbane and have found bed bugs?

Bed bugs are a parasitic insect that reside in your home, usually in your bed linens and mattress but it's not uncommon to find them in soft furnishings like lounges or chairs as well as throughout other bedroom furniture.

Bed bugs like to stay close to their food source but unlike head or body lice, they do not remain on their host, preferring to reside and breed in surrounding furniture like mattresses etc. Bed bugs breed quickly and are resilient pests, which is why it's essential to call a professional pest controller to deal with the infestation before it gets out of hand costing you a fortune to eradicate once and for all.

Upon discovering you have bed bugs you may have had an overwhelming urge to throw out all of your bed linens and mattress in a bid to get rid of these troublesome pests. We find in most cases, throwing out furniture is not necessary and we can eradicate the infestation with all of your existing furniture intact. The fact is bed bugs do not live exclusively on your mattress and the infestation may continue regardless of whether you are now sleeping on the floor.

Our advice to all our new clients that call with a bed bug problem is to leave

everything in the bedroom as it is and don't change or clean the linens and continue to sleep in the affected room until our technician has been. Leaving the linens will help our technician diagnose how advanced the bed bug infestation has grown and helps them devise a treatment plan for your specific situation.

We understand how you may be perturbed by the prospect of sleeping in the same room as bed bugs but we guarantee it will be better for you in the long run. First of all, bed bugs can sense human activity and will follow you even if you move to another room, so by moving into the lounge room, you will be spreading the problem throughout your home, making it harder to control. Secondly, after our technician has completed a bed bug treatment he will urge you to continue sleeping in that room so we can draw the bed bugs from their hiding spots and onto the treated zone.

So whether the bed bug problem is still in the beginning phases or if your bed bug infestation is quite advanced, call Results Home Services now on 3823 2500 and have one of our qualified, experience pest control experts help you take back your bedroom from these blood sucking pests. No problem is too big or too small. We service all of Brisbane and surrounding suburbs.
