✅ Bed Bug Treatments Lewisham
- First we complete a survey of rooms that are suspected to have an issue with bed bugs. This may involve removing headboards and plug sockets. We are looking for evidence of bed bugs that can be in various different forms; live bed bugs, bed bug cases, blood spots, distinct smell and evidence on people using that room.
- Once identification has been made we will complete a detailed hoover and UV treatment of the affected area to remove all life stages of the bed bug (egg, nymph, adult).
- We then treat the room(s) with an insecticide to rapidly knock down living bed bug populations. This insecticidal spray will remain residual for up to two weeks after and will help to prevent any bed bugs spreading, before the heat treatment is applied.
- In heavy infestations, we will continue to apply diatomaceous earth around the bed frame, skirting, light and plug sockets and any other necessary areas. Diatomaceous earth is an effective bed bug powder and kills bed bugs by absorbing the oily, protective layer that covers their exoskeletons. Without this protective coating, bed bugs will dehydrate and die within a few hours.
- These first stages will be completed on our initial arrival to your property.
- The last stage of the process is a full heat treatment, this is usually carried out up to two weeks after the initial stages.
- Your 30 day warranty period will now begin
