Bed bugs are small crawling parasitic insects that are becoming a greater pest problem in this country and around the world. 

They are very easily spread but complicated to treat, resulting in a rapid growth in the number of outbreaks of bed bugs in the NZ and other countries.

The key to beating the problem of bed bugs is to raise awareness of what bed bug signs to look for and to ensure bed bugs are dealt with quickly and effectively by a professional pest controller, once discovered.

Danger Signs

  • Live adult bed bugs and young nymphs
  • Small, dark blood spots on bed sheets or bedding, known as 'faecal pellets'
  • Cast nymphal skins
  • Distinctive sweet & sickly smell

Potential Harm

  • Customers and staff could be bitten and some may have allergic reactions, or secondary infections from scratching bites
  • Bed bugs are small and move around easily but are a complicated pest to treat
  • Once established bed bugs can swiftly reach an epidemic level if not treated quickly and professionally

Business Consequences

Bed bugs use numerous entry points for invading your premises – so a business is constantly exposed to the risks associated with bed bug infestations.
