When encountering bed bugs in a domestic environment, you may come across signs such as:

  • Bites upon the residents of the premises
  • Excrement which is found as black/brown “spotting” upon bed frames and around the property
  • There is an almond like smell associated with bed bugs
  • Infestation, small bugs in cracks, crevices and beds/upholstery
  • Blood spots on bedding

How they arrive and where do they live?

Bed bugs were once eradicated in the UK, but unfortunately they are back thanks to cheap airfares and their hosts (humans) becoming far more likely to travel from one affected area to another, thus spreading their range.  Bed bugs in Scotland can be found in a multitude of dwellings from domestic premises, hotels, B & B’s and youth hostels.  Bed bugs in Scotland are on the increase and can be found especially in the larger cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk and Stirling.  Eliminate Limited has eradicated bed bugs in lots of different properties both commercial and domestic throughout Scotland.

Bed bugs love all upholstery, soft furnishings and bedding they thrive in these situations and can multiply rapidly.   They can also be found in cracks in the wall light fittings and even under wall paper!   Bed bugs do not need to eat on a regular basis and can suffer starvation for up to year which means they can become a nuisance long after arriving at a new premises.

Bed bugs can be extremely upsetting and our technicians at Eliminate Ltd understand this and not only are they thorough and knowledgeable but also discreet and will be able to answer any questions or worries you have.
