In Australia, there has been an increasing infestation of bed bugs over the past decade, with reports of bedbugs throughout hospitals, backpackers, and cinemas to name a few. Therefore it’s absolutely paramount to contact a bed bug removal specialist as soon as you start to see the signs that your furniture has been infected – especially if you have children!

Whatever the reason, our bed bug removal experts will quickly identify the problem and provide a professional solution that serves the test of time. Changing your sheets and airing or fumigating your bed doesn’t always work as bed bugs can find shelter in the darkest of places around your home and furniture.
What are bed bugs?
Bedbugs are small, blood-sucking wingless insects with brown bodies and six crooked legs. Sounds like something out of the movies, right? Although they are nocturnal pests, bed bugs can pounce as soon as they are hungry and your home may be under attack at the strangest of times. Bed bugs tend to shelter in dark locations, mostly in bed mattresses where there is access to food making bed bug control difficult to identify and resolve for good. Bed bugs can also be found in the crevices of walls, furniture and behind loose wallpaper. Although their bite is painless and there is no evidence to show the transmission of infectious diseases, bed bugs can cause swelling and irritation of the skin which is particularly distressing for children.
