Rentokil Singapore provides professional bed bug control and bed bug treatment for your home and business. Bed bugs may be sneaky and silent; however, their bites leave red and itchy bumps that cause much distress. Bed bugs feed on human blood and are often found near beds, furniture and curtain drapes. Our homes, hotels, childcare and healthcare facilities are at risk of bed bug infestations.
Unfortunately, an infestation can happen quickly as an adult female bed bug lays an average of 5 eggs per day. If left uncontrolled, an infestation can be costly, stressful and time-consuming. For businesses, an infestation can impact a company’s reputation.
Rentokil’s environmentally-friendly and safe bed bug treatments provide you with a peace of mind. Treatment options may include residual spraying and steam treatment that target bed bugs in all its life stages including adult bed bugs, larvae and eggs. Our pest control technicians are highly trained to detect early signs of bed bugs, eliminate infestations and prevent reoccurrences.
Even in Singapore, no one is safe from bed bugs. They are commonly found on your beddings, cushions, pillows, mattresses, curtains and carpet and they multiply faster than you can get rid of them.
A common DIY way to get rid of bed bugs is to sprinkle baking soda or cinnamon and leave it for a couple of days, vacuum surrounding and steam the upholstery and repeat the process until satisfactory. However, these home remedies may not be effective to eliminate bed bug infestation.
Look around the edges and the hidden folds of your mattress, foam, beddings, and cushions. Bed bugs are notorious for hiding and breeding in unseen corners and folds. In addition, also check within corners and cracks, edges of painting and powerpoint and among rugs and carpets.
You may vacuum the adult bed bugs crawling around but may miss eggs lying around. In addition, be extra careful when disposing the contents to avoid slipping off some bed bugs back into the home.
Toxics and sprays can help you get rid of bed bugs in some instance but it is strongly recommended that you call a professional pest control specialist near you as bed bugs are challenging to remove due to its spread, size and multiplication.
Initial signs of bed bug infestation includes the tiny blood stains on your bed or upholstery furniture, excrement or droppings that is dark in colour, egg shells and a sweet musty smell.
