Bedbugs Pest Control
Bed bugs (Cimex lectularis)
The bed bug is found worlwide and the number of infestations in the UK has increased considerably in the last 7-10 years. They have always been present in the UK and were reasonably under control with out breaks uncommon (at least in rural areas!) It seems that the advent of cheaper travel to exotic locations where they are more common has resulted in them being brought home.
Whilst bed bugs are not known to be frequent carriers of disease their imporance is mostly related to the unpleasant irritation following their bites. Plus of course the "YUK" factor of being eaten by a bug while you are trying to sleep!
