Bedbugs were once extinct in the UK, but are now becoming one of the biggest pests that we have to deal with here at Eliminate. Attending call-outs to exterminate bedbugs throughout the UK is now routine for Eliminate Ltd technicians. Bedbugs are on the rise in and around many of the city centres in the UK. Bedbugs are a nuisance in a wide variety of commercial and domestic settings throughout the UK.
The most common type of bed bug found in the UK is the Cimex Lectularius, which is a part of the Cimicidae family of bed bugs, which also includes the bat bug. Bed bugs tend to feed on human blood and can cause an allergic reaction leading to a skin infection.
Bed bugs are prolific breeders and can quickly infest your house. They can also attach themselves to your pet cat or dog.
Eliminate Ltd has eradicated bedbugs in lots of different properties, both commercial and domestic, throughout the UK, we, therefore, have the training and experience to resolve your bedbug infestation efficiently. Discretion is something we strive for with all customers as we realise insects of this nature are highly upsetting causing high levels of distress to our customers.
Bed bugs can often be transferred through travelling. If you have stayed at a hotel that is infested with bed bugs and they attach to your clothes, you might transfer them to your home.
Bed bugs are becoming an increasing issue, particularly with student accommodation, apartments and care/nursing homes, and have also been found in transport such as aeroplanes, buses and trains.
Generally speaking, an Eliminate technician will strive to be with you within 4 hours.
Eradication of bed bugs
Our bedbug treatment programmes consist of using a knockdown spray to take out as many of these unwanted pests as possible in one go. The spray we use not only kills the eggs, adult and juvenile (nymph) bedbugs on contact with the insect but will also remain active after the initial spray treatment.
Eliminate Ltd strives to kill bedbugs in one treatment and will advise on the pre-treatment process and how to reduce the chances of re-occurrence.

- Bed frames and headboards.
- In the floorboards.

Eliminate Ltd have a monitoring programme that is available to commercial premises that is discreet and can be carried out at regular intervals. This means that we can catch any bedbug problems in their infancy, this means a quicker response time and an eradication programme put into action before the point of infestation.
In addition to causing pain and irritation, bed bugs can sometimes cause secondary infections of the skin from their bites. A bedbug infestation can reach epidemic proportions if not treated quickly and professionally.
