If your home or workplace is infested with insects, time is of the essence. The presence of crawling insects can be incredibly disruptive, cause damage and contaminate food items.


Nuisance birds can cause damage to your premises, often by dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering and causing unsightly mess with their droppings.


Flies can be a nuisance when buzzing around the home or business, particularly if in large numbers, what’s more, some species of fly also pose a health risk.


Having rats or mice in your home or business is more than an inconvenience – they can be a serious health risk particularly in kitchens or areas where children play.

You might have been told while growing up “don’t let the bed bugs bite”, and for good reason. Bed bugs are pest species that can spread quickly, causing a nightmarish scenario for home and business owners. The solution? To request heat treatment for bed bugs.

What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects that, as the name implies, are often found in cracks and crevices in and around the bed. They feed on blood, with large mammals like us comprising their main food source. At night, they become active, crawling along our skin, drawn by our body heat and the CO2 in our breath, biting any exposed skin as they go. This leaves behind small welts which are usually itchy, and in some cases can even cause an itchy rash or eczema to develop.

How to Identify Bed Bugs

Unlike fleas, bed bugs are usually easier to spot. Before you request pest control for bed bugs, you may want first to identify the problem yourself. An adult bed bug measures 5mm in length and 1.5 – 3mm in width and has a flattened, oval-shaped body. They are usually light brown in colour, though they will appear darker and rounder if they’ve recently fed.

Signs of Infestation

The best places to check for bed bugs are in the mattress seams, crevices of the bed frame, and behind furniture surrounding the bed. You should also check where the walls meet the floor too, as bed bugs can hide out here as well. Of course, if you spot any of the obvious signs of infestation, you will likely require heat treatment for bed bugs:

  • Presence of Small Insects
  • Eggs in Crevices and Joints
  • Black Spots on the Mattress
  • Mottled Bed Bug Shells
  • Blood Spots on Sheets
  • Musty Scent in the Room

Bed bugs can spread disease, though here in the UK, this very rarely happens. Never the less, if you notice bed bugs, you must act quickly by requesting our heat treatment for bed bugs.

Control and Eradication

When it comes to pest treatments for bed bugs, the team at Whelan Pest Prevention are well-versed in this area. We understand the habits of bed bugs and how best to counter their activities. Our team have access to the most cutting-edge treatment techniques, including heat treatments which have been proven to be highly effective.

In addition to insecticides, our heat treatment for bed bugs is a quick and efficient way of eradicating bed bugs. Equipment is placed inside the room and set to raise the internal temperature to a level that will kill bed bugs and their eggs in just a short amount of time. The beauty of this treatment is that it eliminates the possibility that any bugs might be missed as it renders the entire room uninhabitable.

While its immediate effect is undeniable, a heat treatment for bed bugs leaves no residual effects. To prevent bed bugs from returning, we apply powerful insecticides to areas where bed bugs are known to hang out. This ensures that your property is protected from future infestations.

Do you have any questions about this process? Then call Whelan Pest Prevention today on 0800 678 5029, and we’ll endeavour to answer any questions you might have.
