Bed Bugs Control

Bed bugs are a growing problem here in Singapore as well as around the world. The reason is due to high-density urban populations which facilitate the ease of spread of bed bugs. Moreover, bed bugs are difficult to eradicate and exterminate due to their being hardy in nature.

Bed bugs are usually 5mm long. They feed on the blood of mammals. Before feeding, they are flat and light brown in colour. However, their body is engorged and reddish after feeding. Bed bugs are usually active at night and hide during the day. They are attracted to the warmth of our bodies and the carbon dioxide in our breath.

Bed bugs usually hide in the crevices of the bed frame and in the seams of mattresses. Moreover, they could also hide in the surrounding furniture near the bed. Signs of bed bug infestation include the presence of live or dead bed bugs, blood stains, cast skins, bite marks and unpleasant scents.
