Bed bugs are a troublesome pest and are a challenge to eliminate because they are resistant to many chemical treatments and can survive long periods without food or water. Not everyone reacts to bedbug bites but some develop itchy red bumps that can become infected. They look similar to mosquito bites but are usually in a line rather than at random. Bed bugs are not dirty and do not spread disease, nor are they a sign of a dirty home.
The key to bed bug control is a multi-pronged approach and thorough preparation. DIY Pest Control sells a range of products, which if used together should get rid of the problem.
