How to Prevent a Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bug infestations are on the rise, mainly due to the increase of world travel.

How to Deter Bed Bugs From Your Premises

Things you can do to prevent inviting bed bugs onto your premises.

  • Be cautious when travelling as bed bugs can crawl onto your belongings in hotel rooms, so inspect the hotel room thoroughly before unpacking your luggage. It’s advisable to keep your luggage away from the bed and off the floor so that they cannot use your belongings as a means of transport!
  • When buying or borrowing second-hand furniture inspect it carefully before bringing it home. Bed bugs are experts at hiding in furniture and can easily be missed.

  • Removed any clutter in your home. Bed bugs can hide in clutter, so keeping your home tidy and organised can help prevent an infestation.
  • Protect your mattress and divan beds by using protective covers, these can prevent bed bugs from getting into your bedding. Washing bedding regularly on a high heat can kill any bed bugs that are in the bedding (always check the washing instructions first).
