Bed Bug Control

Bed bugs have had a major resurgence in the U.A.E. and every year the problem seems to be getting worse.

Although information on actual numbers of Bed Bugs in the U.A.E. is not readily available, it seems more Bed Bug control jobs are going to specialist companies such as  Desert Pest Control.

Appearance:
Adults are 4-5 mm long, wingless, rounded, flat and reddish-brown. New hatched nymphs are translucent; nymphs resemble the adults and grow through 5 moults before reaching maturity.
Life Cycle:

Eggs (20-40) contained in egg-case (ootheca) which is carried about by the female, protruding from her abdomen. Egg-case is glossy brown, 8mm long. Nymphs resemble adults and moult 6-7 times before becoming fully grown. Adults can live up to 4 months.

Notes:

The common Bedbug (Cimex lectularius), is found in temperate regions across the world. Usually found in human habitation,  hiding in cracks and crevices, in beds and bedding in the  daytime, emerging at night to feed on human blood.

Their bites don’t cause much irritation, but the bugs possess stink glands on their thorax that cause a disgusting odour when disturbed. Though they can harbor pathogens in their bodies, including  plague and hepatitis B, they have not been linked to the transmission of any disease and are therefore  not considered a medical threat.

However, humans can get skin infections  and scars from scratching bites. For causing disgust and

sheer nuisance value, Bedbugs are perhaps the No. 1 pest!

Bed Bugs can..

Cause major distress with their feeding habits.

They feed on our blood at night when we are asleep. Cause swelling and some skin irritation, Cause allergic reactions in some people.

What We Do

To enable us to have an effective bed bugs control program, we thoroughly inspect your building concentrating

on your sleeping areas. Bed bugs are nocturnal meaning they come out after dark and this is also when they feed.

Bed Bugs can be found in mattresses, bed bases, crevices and even behind pictures on the wall. Once we locate the population, we can start our integrated program and bed bugs treatment. We treat all affected areas with safe insecticides and concentrate on their harbourages so most of the insecticide is out of sight.

What you can do with our help and advice

You will need to wash bedding and clothing in hot water. Thorough vacuuming of all hard floor areas, carpets, rugs and soft furniture is also required. Double bag the contents of your vacuum cleaner and dispose in the rubbish bin immediately.
