Bed Bugs are prolific in the Atherton and Leigh Pest Control area of business and several specialists are convinced that the Olympic Games will result in an outburst in these disgusting unwanted pests during the next couple of years.
Quite A Few people confuse bed bugs with dust mites. Distinct From dust mites which are comparatively safe, bed bugs are not present in just about every bed but only in the beds of people unlucky enough to become infested.
Bed bugs are readily noticed and resemble an apple pip, especially when fully developed and newly fed. They are certainly not indicators of poor sanitation, all they require is a blood meal every few days – your blood!
Acquiring bed bugs is quite easy, you do not even need to stay in an infested hotel, you can get them on tubes and buses even.
It only requires a lone female to rapidly establish an infestation in your house and they spread like wildfire through attached properties, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is really severe you can suffer 4-600 bites per night and become actually quite ill.
Whatever you do PLEASE never try and deal with the infestation yourself, I guarantee that you will just make things a lot worse. If you suspect that you could have got a bed bug infestation then please phone us for advice before you do anything at all.
Many individuals immediately go out and get new beds or mattresses, this truly is a waste of time and cash as the new bed will be rapidly infested by bugs from elsewhere in the bedroom.
People who have an ant infestation within their houses will know just how dreadful it can be, specifically when the flying ants appear.

Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are becoming more troublesome in the Atherton and Leigh Pest Control area and we are getting an increasing number of telephone calls from people who continuously treat their dogs and cats and yet are still getting flea infestations in their houses.
This may perhaps be that populations of cat fleas and dog fleas are becoming impervious to the active ingredients in the flea remedies on sale to the public.
The spread of these fleas is also brought about by the increase in the presence of urban foxes in many places.
It is vital to deal with a flea infestation rapidly, especially in the presence of toddlers as fleas are intermediate hosts of tapeworm.
