Bedbugs & Fleas

Types Of Bed Bugs In The UK

The history of bed bugs in the UK begins a little while before WWII. The Cimex lectulariusis the type of bed bug that is native to Europe and the UK. Bed bugs weren’t common to the UK until the 1930s and since then the problem has grown. In fact, immediately after WWII, it’s reported that nearly 30% of British homes were infested with these wicked bugs. Such a drastic increase in their population was attributed to the heating systems used in homes which created more pleasant living conditions for them to thrive in.

Bedbugs lurk in cracks and crevices and been living on human blood for centuries. Though they aren’t known to transmit disease or pose any serious medical risk, the stubborn parasites can leave itchy and unsightly bites.

However, bedbugs don’t always leave marks. The best way to tell if you have a bedbug infestation is to see the live, apple-seed-size critters for yourself. Unfortunately, once bedbugs take up residence in homes and businesses, they can be difficult to exterminate without professional help.

We totally understand the frustration these blood-sucking insects cause it, is not only due to the emotional stress of dealing with these parasites, but also the irritation of their bites and the potential for secondary infection from constant scratching.
