What are the signs of a bed bug infestation?

Identifying bed bugs or detecting their presence can be challenging since they tend to conceal themselves in small cracks and crevices during the day, but there are some tell-tale signs to look out for when looking for bed bugs.

Risks bed bugs pose to your business or organisation

Bed bugs can pose a significant risk to businesses, particularly those in the hospitality industry, such as hotels, hostels, care homes, student accommodations and Airbnb accommodations. The risks associated with bed bugs include:

  • Negative impact on reputation: Bed bugs are often associated with unclean or unsanitary environments. If a business becomes known for having bed bugs, it can damage their reputation and result in a loss of customers.
  • Financial losses: If bed bugs are discovered on a business’s premises, they may have to close temporarily to deal with the infestation, resulting in lost revenue. Additionally, if not treated early, bed bug infestations can spread throughout multi-occupancy properties to create large-scale infestations, which can be costly to treat.
  • Legal liability: Businesses are responsible for ensuring rooms are bed bug-free. If a business has been found to be the source of a bed bug infestation, it may be held legally responsible for any damages or losses incurred by affected parties, including guests, employees, or neighbouring businesses.
  • Health risks: While bed bugs do not transmit diseases, their bites can cause allergic reactions, skin irritation, and secondary infections, which can be uncomfortable and unpleasant. This could result in an inconvenience for those affected, potentially having to seek medical advice and treatment.

Overall, bed bugs can significantly impact a business’s bottom line, reputation, and legal liabilities. Businesses need to take proactive measures to prevent infestations and address them promptly if they occur.

Problems bed bugs can cause in your home

Bed bugs can cause a variety of problems in your home:

  • Bites: Bites can cause discomfort and itchiness, which could lead to skin infections if scratched excessively.
  • Anxiety and stress: They can cause anxiety, leading to sleeplessness, as people become anxious about being bitten while sleeping.
  • Embarrassment: They are often associated with unclean or unsanitary conditions, which can delay people in seeking help early. But it’s important to note that bed bugs can be found in both clean and dirty environments, as they are attracted to the warmth and carbon dioxide.
  • Size and scale of an infestation: Left untreated, an infestation can rapidly grow, infesting multiple areas in your home, including furniture, carpets, and curtains.
  • Property damage: In some cases infestations can lead to property damage. People may try to discard infested and damaged items such as mattresses, sofas or other furniture items.
  • Costs: Problems will incur treatment costs and possible costs to replace any infested property.

Overall, bed bugs can be a significant nuisance and can cause physical and emotional distress, making it essential to address any infestations promptly.

Bed Bug facts

They have an uncanny ability to spread using unsuspecting people and their belongings as carriers, making them skilled hitchhikers. In fact, they are primarily transported by humans and human belongings like suitcases but can also spread on second hand furniture when it is moved from one place to another.

These nocturnal insects get their name as they are usually found in close proximity to beds, as they feed on humans sleeping in bed at night. The bite is painless whilst they feed and the blood meal takes about 10 minutes. Some people will notice bites on their skin, whereas others may not notice any visible signs of being bitten.

They identify the presence of a suitable host through body heat and carbon dioxide from exhaled breath. Once they have fed, they retreat to their hidden cracks and crevices for a week or so before seeking a further blood meal, however they can go up to a month without feeding. This is what can make detecting the presence of bed bugs difficult while the infestation levels are low. At Vergo, we have specially trained technicians and bed bug sniffer dogs who are experienced in bed bug detection and control, and we can offer quick and effective bed bug treatments anywhere across the UK.

They are primarily found where there is a heavy flow of people such as hotels and student accommodation. These places tend to report repeat infestations due to many people coming and going, and bed bugs can easily spread throughout the property on items such as bedding, luggage, and other items. Bed bugs can also be found on public transport, such as buses, trains, or taxis.
