Identify and Kill Bed Bugs with Chemical-Free Treatment
Bed bugs are small, blood-sucking parasites that feed on humans and animals to live, breed and develop.
Back in the early 20th century, bed bugs were a non-existent problem. However, the rise of international travel and prohibition on harmful (yet effective) pesticide treatment means bed bugs have spread and grown in incredible numbers around the world.
In fact, the University of Sheffield estimates the number of bed bug complaints in Australia has risen by a staggering 5,000 percent since the year 2000.
How Do I Get Bed Bugs?
People who travel overseas regularly pose the greatest risk of being infested.
Poorly maintained motels and backpacker hostels are a breeding ground for bed bugs. If they sneak into your luggage, they can return home and infest your living space – without you even knowing it.
Once inside, bed bugs cause an uncomfortable living situation and create feelings of anxiety that negatively impact your lifestyle.
Bed Bug Behavior
Bed bugs love to hide and their discreet nature makes treatment difficult.
From tiny cracks and crevices to furniture, walls, ceilings, nightstands, and of course, the mattress – these pests love to play hide-and-seek.
Bed bugs mostly feed at night when the human host is asleep.
While feeding, they inject an anaesthetic that prevents bites from waking their victims. These bites can occur in a line or row along the exposed area. Bites are typically small, red swollen marks that cause itching and burning within a few days of the feed occurring.
Common Signs of Infestation
Besides bite marks, bed bugs do leave behind other notable signs of infestation, such as:
|Tiny blog drops on the sheet, mattress, walls and furniture|
|Leftover skin casings and faecal matter|
|Itchiness, swelling and burning sensation caused by bites|
|Live bed bugs hidden in furniture, tiny crevices or mattress seams|
|While less obvious, sweet musty smell in concentrated areas|
How to Treat Bed Bugs
Early treatment detection and chemical-free treatment will ensure your living space is free of nasty bed bugs.

At a convenient time for you, Critter Busters will carry out a thorough inspection of your home or business to identify the pests and establish a custom treatment plan to get rid of the infestation for good.
Chemical-free heat treatment is an effective way to kill bed bugs and their associated eggs where normal pesticides cannot reach. This control method is safe, environmentally-friendly, and the premise does not need to be evacuated.
Most treatments can be applied in a single appointment and will start immediately to kill the infestation. After 7-10 days, a follow-up inspection is made to assess the results and if required, apply further treatment as an extra precaution.
