Swatapest provides bed bug treatment services throughout Perth for residential and commercial pest control clients.
Bed bug treatment is difficult because the bed bug egg is so hard, no current pesticide can penetrate the egg casing.
This is an important fact when it comes to bed bug extermination. Because the pesticide cannot kill the egg, this means that the eradication of bedbugs requires multiple treatments, as we need to return and treat again to eliminate new baby bed bugs.
The most effective bed bug treatment is one that we have developed:
- 3 treatments over an 8-week period to provide full eradication of the bed bug infestation.
- 100% satisfaction guaranteed
Hot steam is considered a good treatment method, but our vast experience of dealing with bed bugs is not enough to eliminate the problem.
Fumigation is toxic and unnecessary. The 3x treatment method is the most effective and safest for the hotel/home.
How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
When you find bed bugs in a room, call us straight away. The first thing people want to do is wash the sheets, but this is BAD.
Leave everything exactly the way it is. You may inadvertently drop eggs or bed bugs elsewhere in the house and spread the problem making the problem become bigger than it should be.
Having bed bugs in your home can be a real nuisance, but the more you can do to work with us, the better and quicker the results that you ultimately want will happen.
We will kill off all living bed bugs, at the same time work with you to develop a plan (wash all your clothes in hot water, etc – we will explain all of this to you during your initial site visit).
Bed bugs are nocturnal, wingless and flat which allows them to sneak into the tiniest of crevices. They can range from 1mm – 7mm in length.
People often don’t know they have been bitten and symptoms are not instant. Some people don’t get symptoms at all. All of this contributes to how bedbugs spread easily.
Bed bugs are most active between 3-6 am as it’s the coldest time of the night, they want a warm blood meal at this time.
The warmer the weather, the further the bedbugs will be comfortable travelling from one place to another. The colder the weather, the more congregated in warm areas they will be.
They will hide virtually anywhere:
- Bedside tables
- Bed Headboard
- Inside the feet of the bed frame
- Electrical sockets
- Cavity Walls
- Between pillow and pillowslip
- Inside bedside alarm clock
- Bedside cupboard
- Skirting boards
- Under mattress protector
They can spread by:
- Maid transporting from room to room as they fall from the bedding sheets
- Airplane luggage transfer from one bag to another
- Airport luggage – transfer from one bag to another
- Travel through cavity walls
- Drop from luggage as you wheel from one place to another
- Transfer for one person to another on the bus/train/restaurant/movie theatre/ Waiting room / board room /etc
Bed Bug Bites
Bed bug bites may appear to come on suddenly, even though the actual bite occurred a while ago.
- 50% of people bitten will have no reaction at all – this is why they are able to spread so easily because people have no idea, they have them when they do.
- Only 1 out of 5 will have a real severe reaction of welts and itchiness. It can take up to 2 weeks before the welts become itchy.
Bed bugs are not a respecter of people; they simply want a blood meal, and this has absolutely nothing to do with how clean or dirty a person is.
Bed bugs have been found in 5 Star hotel rooms in Perth as well as Back-Packer places, it doesn’t matter, they just want a bit of your blood.
Bed Bug Control
Bed bug control is a matter of engaging in a professional, leave everything as is until you have had your inspection.
On the same token, bed bug control in hotels is vital. Having bed bugs in a hotel room can be a very costly exercise. Not only do you have the eradication costs, but you will also have the loss of income from a room out of commission for several months, whilst the elimination process takes effect.
Educating your staff, proper handling of bedsheets, what to look out for, etc is a priority to minimising the spread and further cost to your business.
We can provide you and your staff with training, so they know what to look out for.
We have provided bedbug eradication to several hotels throughout Perth and are happy to work with you and your staff to minimise the effect on your business.
Bed Bug Treatment Cost
The average bed bug treatment cost is from $550.
