Dealing with Bed Bugs In Ireland

Dealing with Bed Bugs In Ireland


When you’re a homeowner, having the appropriate level of pest control is important. Since Lenehans inception in 1865, pest control has been a specialty of ours. 

One of the peskiest types of pests is bed bugs. It’s incredibly important to obtain the proper materials and deal with these bugs in an efficient manner. Otherwise, it’s very easy for them to resurface and continue to cause problems. 

What Are Bed Bugs? 

Bed bugs are tiny. They can range in size from a length of 2mm, which is barely visible to the human eye, to a length of 4.5mm. Typically, they hide in mattresses and the crevices in wood and flooring.

They are also considered parasitic insects, meaning they feed on human and animal blood. They are attracted by the warmth in the bedding area, and the carbon dioxide from warm breathe. Normally these bugs attack while you’re asleep in bed, and the bite can be completely painless. Most people don’t notice them until they shop up days later as an area of red welts. 

How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

To get rid of bed bugs, you first must understand exactly where they’re nesting. Normally, you can notice their presence by lifting up the borders of your mattress (the lip around the perimeter). You will notice black streaks that have quite an unpleasant smell. This is a telltale sign of the presence of bed bugs. 

After isolating the areas where you believe they’re located, first, treat the heavily soiled areas with Bed Bug Killer. This product is available online at Lenehans and is extremely effective. It suffocates the bed bugs and also kills the eggs to prevent future infestation. 

Once you’ve treated with the Bed Bug Killer, you need to get rid of all sheets, blankets, and pillows that came into contact with the bed bugs. Additionally, you should also treat the carpet area within close range of your bed. It’s possible they could have begun to make their way off the bed to travel. 

It’s very important you thoroughly clean the entire area to make sure it’s free of bed bugs. It’s not a bad idea to use a number of different treatment options to ensure you effectively get rid of the bed bug infestation. You can find other sprays, bombs, and traps online from Lenehans.
