Bed Bug Control
Bed Bug Control in Singapore
A bed bug infestation happens commonly in places where people lounge. These include places such as hotels, cinemas, public transport and even homes. Have you ever wondered how a bed bug infestation happens? Besides being able to hide well in small spaces due to their flat and tiny body, bed bugs are great hitchhikers. They relocate easily and can be brought home through luggage, clothes and bags.
Bed bugs feed on human blood, causing red and itchy bumps, which may lead to serious allergy conditions. Despite being small, a bed bug infestation may lead to financial consequences and great mental distress.
Our highly-trained bed bug control specialists are ready to help you identify signs, eliminate an existing infestation and share tips to prevent reoccurrences. Contact us today at 6517 9989.
The Life Cycle of Bed Bugs
A bed bug goes through a 7-stage life cycle, which includes 5 moulting stages before reaching maturity. The bed bug eggs take approximately 2 weeks to hatch. Nymphs, or young bed bugs, require blood meals to complete their moulting stages.
Similar to physical bed bugs, the signs of a bed bug infestation may be notoriously hard to spot. These signs of bed bugs can help to determine if you have an infestation:
A musty and sweet scent that may smell like rust or wet laundry
Small, red and itchy bumps on arms, hands and legs.
Blood stains on pillows, bedsheets or clothes.
Dark-coloured bed bug droppings, or faecal marks, around the size of a pen tip
Live bed bugs
Bed bugs reproduce quickly and may turn into a severe infestation in a short timeframe. Seek professional pest control advice on your bed bug issues as soon as you notice any sign of infestation. Contact us online or call us today at 6517 9989.

How often should we disinfect a place?Regular cleaning helps to reduce pathogens including bacteria, viruses and fungi on commonly-shared surfaces. This helps to reduce the risk of transmission from surfaces including keyboards, door knobs and switches. Therefore, it is recommended to carry out cleaning daily to get rid of contaminants that may land on the surfaces. Besides cleaning, you may consider a professional sanitisation and disinfection misting treatment to thoroughly cleanse your property. This may be done as one-off service or regularly based on your needs.
How do i disinfect a house with COVID-19 exposure?Household bleach and alcohol (70% to 90%) can be used for surface disinfection. You should first wipe down the surfaces with water and detergent to remove any traces of dirt before carrying out the disinfection. In addition to surface disinfection, a professionally-conducted disinfection misting service can help to get rid of viruses lingering in the air. This treatment is suitable to be carried out not only for residential homes but also ideal for businesses with COVID-19 exposure.
What is the price of a professional disinfection service?The cost of disinfection services may vary depending on several factors such as the scope of work, size of your property and frequency of treatment. It may also cost more to disinfect premises with confirmed COVID-19 cases as there are more prerequisites to the service including the need to don full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to carry out the service.
