Bed Bug Activity
Bed bugs can prove hard to spot initially as they are active at night and adept at hiding in dark places during the day. They most often hide in crevices and in spaces between mattresses and box springs, on bed frames and headboards, and between the couch and chair cushions. Although less common, they can also be found in dressers, in and on nightstands, luggage, electrical outlets, and amongst surrounding clutter. Once they infest a room, they often travel to adjacent rooms.

Pestpro Bird Solutions were called in because unfortunately the block had an infestation of Bed bugs.
This was both unpleasant and upsetting for the residents who are mostly elderly.
The guys were here for a few weeks treating the flats which proved to be a testing time for all concerned.
The guys carried out their work thoroughly and had to deal with distressed and upset residents.
They did so with professionalism and patience.
I cannot fault the service they provided and their commitment to resolving issues.
I would Highly Recommend them.

IDENTIFYING BED BUGS
Bed Bug Bites
At night, bed bugs travel from their hiding places to feed on sleeping host animals. They insert their long needle-like mouthparts into the skin, inject saliva which digests blood cells, and drink up the digested blood. As the abdomen fills with blood, it turns bright red, dark red-brown, or blackish. After feeding, they retreat to their hiding places. They typically feed every 5 – 10 days but can live up to 8 months without feeding.
Unlike many insects that feed on human blood, bed bugs are not known to transmit (vector) any disease-causing bacteria or viruses (pathogens). Reactions to bed bug bites very among individuals. Many victims show no signs of bites. Others don’t realize they’ve been bitten until rash, redness, or swelling appears around the bite, sometimes with intense itching.
