Pest Control - Bed Bugs

Due to an increase in foreign travel, bed bugs are becoming more common.  Humans and animals are a target for bed bugs.  A small, flat, reddish coloured insect of about 6mm in length, they hide during the day in crevices in furniture, bed frames, skirting boards and at night they come out to feed.  They feed on human blood but will also attack pet animals.  The signs of bed bugs are bites on the body (some people can get a severe allergic reaction), little black dots on wallpaper near the bed (bed bug faeces) and cast skins, which look like empty bed bugs.
