Every situation is different, so we use a variety of methods to eliminate bed bugs. As licensed pest removers, we have access to commercial-grade tools and pesticides that work better than anything available in stores. Liquid and aerosol insecticides remove bed bugs on the spot, while dusts and foams provide lasting protection. Our steam treatments kill bed bugs at every stage of the lifecycle, and thermal treatments reach every bug in the room. The experts at Pest Control Peterborough have multiple years of experience in bed bug control and perform thorough inspections. The treatments we provide are part of a two-service process in which we eliminate the bed bug population during the first visit and come back to make sure that any surviving insects or hatchlings do not make it to adulthood. Every one of our treatments is guaranteed.

Signs of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are flat, oval-shaped insects that look a lot like apple seeds. These insects are reddish brown in colour and about 5mm long. Bed bugs feed solely on the blood of humans and animals. To feed, they emerge from their hiding spots at night and bite their victims in their sleep. Bed bugs each have two beaks they use to bite; one is used to inject an anesthetic into the skin while the other draws blood. This anesthetic works for about 15 minutes, giving the bugs enough time to feed and hide away again. Common hiding spots include mattress seam, bedroom furniture, power outlets, and baseboards. 

Many people wrongly assume that bed bugs are attracted to filth. In truth, anyone can get them. Bed bugs are master hitchhikers that cling to people’s belongings and follow them home. These pests do not discriminate; they are only attracted to warm-blooded animals and dark rooms where they can hide. Bed bugs are commonly picked up in hotels, movie theatres, libraries, laundry facilities and public transit vehicles. They can also be brought in by purchasing used furniture. Thanks to international travel, bed bugs have become increasingly common all over the world. 



Signs of a bed bug infestation include the appearance of blood stains on the bed sheets. Bed bug bites sometimes result in spilling blood, staining the bed sheets with red or brown droplets and smears. Bed bugs that are crushed by their sleeping victims may also stain the sheets. Bed bug bites look a lot like mosquito bites, but usually appear in patterned clusters of straight lines and zig zags on the parts of the skin that are exposed at night. Depending on the person, these can become itchy, red, and inflamed. Tiny black spots on the mattress seams and bed frame also point toward an infestation. These are bed bug feces and may appear anywhere the bugs are hiding. Tiny, white eggs and yellow, shed skins may also be found in these hiding spots.

If you think you might be dealing with bed bugs, inspect the infested room from top to bottom. Lift your mattress out of its bed frame and examine the mattress seams closely. Look for bed bugs, feces, and eggs. Using a flashlight, look in the crevices of the bed frame and within the box frame or wooden slats. Check every nook and cranny of the bedroom or infested area. Empty out the nightstand and other nearby pieces of furniture and look in those as well. Bed bugs may also hide in power outlets, baseboards, picture frames, loosened wallpaper, and curtain folds. Contact a professional pest remover immediately at the first sign of an infestation.


dangers of bed bug infestation

Bed bugs will not go away on their own. These are stubborn creatures that breed quickly and have evolved to resist pesticides. Store-bought sprays may eliminate adult bugs on contact, but you will need to reach every bug and their eggs are known to survive. Just when you thought the pests are gone, they will come back. Every bug needs to be eliminated for the issue to stop. Though they only live for a few months at a time, bed bugs reach sexual maturity within a few weeks and lay eggs every day. A single female bed bug can lay up to 500 eggs in her lifetime. A seemingly small infestation of bed bugs can quickly blow out of control. The longer you wait for a professional treatment, the worse the situation will get and the more work you will need to put in to get rid of the problem.

If you have been living with bed bugs, call a professional pest removal company and prepare for treatment. Wash all of your clothing and bedding at the highest allowable temperature and dry them at the hottest heat setting. Keep infested rooms as clean as you can and vacuum thoroughly. Remove the contents of your night tables and other pieces of furniture nearby and keep them bagged until treatment is complete. The more severe the infestation, the more you will need to clean and remove items from their original locations. Listen to the advice the technician provides and consider investing in a mattress cover to help prevent any more infestations from happening.  


Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to get rid of because they resist store-bought pesticides and hide extremely well. Attempting to remove them yourself is likely to leave survivors behind that will continue to multiply and bite you in your sleep. Hiring a pest removal company is the most reliable way to get rid of bed bugs. Professionals use safe, top-of-the-line insecticides and that eliminate bugs on contact and continue to work for weeks after they are applied. Unlike store-bought products, commercial-grade pesticides have residual properties that eliminate bed bugs that may have been missed during the initial treatment. Any eggs that may have survived will hatch and become poisoned as well. In addition to pesticides, professionals can provide you with a steam treatment or heat treatment to instantly remove bed bugs at every stage of the lifecycle. These are tools that professionals are trained to use, and they have the experience to use them well.
