4 HIDING PLACES OF BED BUGS

When people ask me that how do you get bed bugs or any way to identify them, my reply is if you feel small pinches during the night or when laying on your bed but the insect is invisible then its bed bug. Well, in my experience as a pest control engineer, I often hear complains about such insects that interrupt people but never show up. We ask people if there are red marks in bedside corners, behind the wall or any part of their house. If you could spot such marks, it’d be bed bugs that are small, fast and transparent in terms of physical appearance. So how do you get bed bugs or how would you locate them? We’ve listed 4 common places where bed bugs usually dwell and here they are.

Spot # 1: Mattresses

Usually what happens, bed bugs make home in your mattresses and come out of this secret hideout in darkness. If you feel small sting while you’re on the mattress, it’s time to do something about it. We, at Liverpool Dubai, suggest using a mattress zip cover to retain bed bugs inside and have a sound sleep. These mattresses are specifically designed to stop bed bugs with their stitching pattern and material quality.

Spot # 2: Bed Frames

When people ask me that how do you get bed bugs, my answer is bed frames where these irritating insects usually reside. The interesting thing about bed bugs is that they are colorless when young and adopt red color after sucking blood from a living being. It could be you, anyone from your household or your pet that may be the prey but once they have blood inside their body, they change the color. And our suggestion to all our customers is going for IPM (Integrated Pest Management) instead of trying any pesticides that would ruin your bedframe.

Spot # 3: Back Wall

Another common spot to find bed bugs and exterminate them yourself is looking at your bedside wall where we rarely clean or mop. As I told you earlier, bed bugs live in darkness and can be considered a lone creature. During inspection, or otherwise, I ask customers to try vacuuming and sweep them away from their life before they spread all over the place.

Spot # 4: Bedside Tables

The least anyone would notice is the bedside tables where these bed bugs usually stay. They can be found in the back of beside tables. So during the vacuuming process, never forget to vacuum this area of your bedroom otherwise you’d end up leaving few bed bugs behind that are enough to grow the problem.

3 DIY TIPS TO KEEP HOUSE FLIES AWAY

Spotting a wandering house fly is quite common in one’s household but what’s your plan to stop this unwanted creature from intruding your personal space? In my experience as a pest control engineer, I’ve witnessed many people complaining about house flies and how this irritating creature has given them an aggravating feel with that buzzing sound. Some people even expressed their concerns about cleanliness and how house flies spoil their hygienic life standards. If you’re also concerned about this pestering creature (scientifically known as Musca Domestica) then read on to eliminate this problem from your life for good.

Utilize Mint:

Over the years as pest control & cleaning company in Dubai, we’ve observed some patterns about house flies’ nature. We suggest our customers to make use of mints because house flies are not really fond of its smell. And the good thing is, you can easily find the right type of mint for keeping house flies away. You may use spearmint, peppermint or lemon balm in kitchen area and prevent house flies infestation. For bedroom and living area, you may also try basil to maintain decoration of your house and benefit from the refreshing fragrance it has.

Try Lemongrass:

When it comes to home remedies for preventing pest infestation, we empower our customers with multiple options to tackle with house flies. Our experience with lemongrass was satisfactory to control house fly intrusion before it gets serous so we highly recommend using lemongrass if the house fly problem is in its initial stage. You can easily find lemongrass from the market and use them in different ways to match with your settings and keep the flies away.

Get Electric Insect Killer:

If these home remedies fail to stop these annoying flies, you may opt for electric insect killers that are very effect in fly prevention. A normal electric insect killer would cost you around AED100/- or so and you may easily set a trap for these small flies that put a question mark on your cleaning measurements and hygienic lifestyle. To attract them, you may even use delicious pastries or something like that alongside the electric fly killer and trap them with the smell.

If you feel that things are out of your hands, you need to consult a professional pest control company for complete evaluation of your house. Speak with our customer reps on 800-25326464 or drop your queries at info@liverpooldubai.com
