All About Bed Bugs

How can I prevent the infestation of bed bugs in my home?

Preventing bed bugs can be quite difficult as they are extremely mobile. They are easily transported through luggage, clothing and furniture. Once they are in your home, you can expect them to multiply quite quickly and spread throughout your entire house. While they don’t jump or fly, they can crawl long distances.


Inspect your mattress and bed regularly for signs of an infestation and get professional advice if you think you have bedbugs.


Avoid buying second-hand mattresses and carefully inspect second-hand furniture before bringing it into your home.


Keep your bedroom tidy and remove clutter.


Bedbugs aren’t attracted to dirt, so they’re not a sign of an unclean home, but clearing up any clutter will reduce the number of places they can hide.

How can I tell if I have bed bug bites?

While bedbug bites are typically painless, they are known to be quite itchy and irritated. Some people may even react to bedbug bites with symptoms showing within minutes of the bites or up to a week or two after the fact. Bedbug bites can last a few days and you will notice the following symptoms:


Can cause itchy red bumps on the skin, usually occur on exposed areas such as the face, neck, hands or arms


Often occur in lines across the skin


May cause a rash or fluid-filled blisters in more severe cases


Can become infected with bacteria if scratched


If your bites are uncomfortable and itchy, you can buy a mild steroid cream (such as hydrocortisone) or antihistamine tablets to relieve the itch or see your health care professional.

How can I help treat my home for a bed bugs infestation?

Wash infested clothes or bed linen at 60 degrees, or put them in a dryer on a hot setting for 30 minutes.


Use a vacuum cleaner with a hose to suck up any bugs you can see – dispose of the contents of the vacuum cleaner in a sealed bag.


Consider throwing away heavily infested mattresses or furniture.
