Our Bed Bug Treatment – What We do

Professionalism matters. With Jim’s, you’ll find qualified bed bug exterminators using state-of-the-art technology. Our solutions are not just effective; they’re environmentally friendly as well. We understand the importance of your peace of mind.

To enable us to have an effective bed bugs control program, we thoroughly inspect your building, concentrating on your sleeping areas. Bed bugs are nocturnal meaning they come out after dark and this is also when they feed. Bed Bugs can be found in mattresses, bed bases, crevices and even behind pictures on the wall.

Once we locate the population, we can start our integrated program and bed bugs treatment. We treat all affected areas with safe insecticides and concentrate on their harbourages so most of the insecticide is out of sight.

We also supply a range of effective mattress encasements at a very competitive price which will ensure a much better outcome.

What you can do with our bed bug help and advice

You will need to wash bedding and clothing in hot water. Thorough vacuuming of all hard floor areas, carpets, rugs and soft furniture is also required. Double bag the contents of your vacuum cleaner and dispose in the rubbish bin immediately.

The Problem with Bed Bugs

These tiny insects are elusive, stealthy, and incredibly resilient. Feeding on human blood, they thrive in mattresses, sofas, and cracks in walls. They multiply rapidly and, if left untreated, a small problem turns into a major infestation.

The Process

First, a thorough inspection is carried out. The extent of infestation determines the treatment plan. We attack the problem at its source, using proven methods with professional results. Regular follow-ups ensure no recurrence.

Prevention Tips

  • Regularly vacuum and clean your bedding.
  • Seal cracks and crevices around your home.
  • Avoid buying second-hand furniture.
  • Use protective covers on mattresses and pillows.

Bed Bug Infestation: How to Recognise The Problem

Itchy bites, tiny fecal spots on bedding, and a musty odour are signs of infestation. Visual sighting of the bugs also confirms their presence. Quick professional intervention is necessary.

Jim’s Approach

We believe in a tailored approach. Each infestation is unique, so are our solutions. Safe for kids and pets, our methods will make your home comfortable again.

General Information About Bed Bugs

Life Cycle of Bed Bugs

  1. Eggs: Female bed bugs lay tiny, white eggs about the size of a pinhead. These eggs are often hidden in cracks and crevices.
  2. Nymphs: After hatching, the nymphs (juveniles) go through five growth stages. They need a blood meal to molt and progress to the next stage.
  3. Adults: After the fifth molt, bed bugs reach adulthood. They continue to feed on blood and can live for several months.
  4. Reproduction: Adult females can lay hundreds of eggs in their lifetime. The cycle continues as new generations hatch and grow.

Origin of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs have been a nuisance to humans for thousands of years. Historically, they were associated with bats, but they adapted to feed on humans when we began dwelling in caves. As human civilisations grew, bed bugs spread with us, infesting our homes and places of rest.

How Bed Bugs Travel

  1. Personal Belongings: Bed bugs can hitch rides on luggage, clothing, and other personal items. This is a common way they spread between hotels, motels, and homes.
  2. Furniture: Second-hand furniture might host bed bugs. Without proper inspection, they can lead to a new infestation.
  3. People: While they don’t live on humans, bed bugs can travel on clothing and belongings as people move from place to place.
  4. Shared Walls and Floors: In apartment buildings and shared accommodations, bed bugs can move through wall voids, plumbing, and electrical chases.
  5. Public Transport: Infestations have even been found on public transportation, where they can transfer onto passengers’ belongings.
