We are getting bitten at night, do we have bed bugs?
The Victorians called them wall bugs from the fact that they had material wall coverings and the bugs would crawl up behind these, but bed bugs are as the name suggests - bloodsucking insects that live in your bed.
You can usually tell bed bug bites from the fact that they'll bite you in a row; this is where your skin is exposed and they will crawl across the sheet or your night clothes and feed on the first piece of skin they come across.
This will often be from the bottom of the bed or the top as the insects pick up a cocktail of pheromones, hormones and gases from their hosts = us.
If we have bed bugs where could have got them from?
Think of bed bugs as hitch hikers and us as their chosen form of transport, anywhere we go they can go so its common to see bed bugs on planes, trains and buses, as we increasingly travel across the globe we are inadvertently picking these up and bringing them home with us.
The problem with bed bugs is that they are rapidly evolving to be able to metabolise the chemicals we use to poison them, this means that some strains are immune to the pesticides that we have to control them.
Bed bugs have been a major problem throughout the recorded history of the human race and they will continue to be a issue for time to come, successful bed bug treatments start with high temperatures and finish with residual chemicals.

Maidenhead Pest Control - we use heat with chemicals to control bed bugs
Because of the bed bugs ability to resist some chemicals here at Maidenhead Pest Control we only use the latest most advanced chemicals and we back this up with high temperature steam to kill off both the adults and the egg's.
Bed bugs will be able to slide into a space as thin as a piece of paper and its here that the female will lay her egg's so we use 180 degree steam to cook this off.
There is no hiding place for bed bugs from us!
Bed bug infestations can go unnoticed in the early stages and as they breed it can quickly get out of hand and many people will attempt to treat the problem themselves with internet bought chemicals.
Its doubtful that these will be powerful enough to deal with the problem and so it continues, many people express a feeling of shame when we carryout a treatment and that is something that you should NOT feel.
Bed bugs are part of the natural environment and they should be considered in the same manner that we view mosquito's. For information on the bed bug lifecylce read this blog from Reading Pest Control.
There are signs to look out for to let you know if you have a bed bug infestation: look for little dark blood spots where the insects congregate, you may see some of these on sheets and bedding as the insects secrete the water straight out of the blood they've taken. Another way to determine if you have bed bugs is to smell - these have a musty odour rather like a damp towel so if your bed has this smell, you've probably got them. Another sign is like all insects they have to shed their exoskeleton in order to grow; its called a moult. You may see shed skins which have a almost transparent reddish colour - a bit like the skin of a peanut.
