Don’t let the bed bugs bite. How many of us have used this line to tease the young ones?
In reality, bed bug bites are highly unpleasant and they rob us of a good night’s sleep. So what may seem like a clean room or bed can actually hold up to as many as a few hundred bedbugs. If you look closely, especially at the cracks and crevices around your room, you may even detect the presence of live or dead bed bugs, or even their cream-coloured eggs.
Another disturbing fact about bed bugs is that they are excellent hitch-hikers. This means that they can jump onto your clothing or luggage and travel with you. Bed bugs have been found in theatres, furniture and even hotel rooms!
Sparky has been trained to sniff out bedbugs, while the service professionals will use a special 2-step process to end the bed bug problem. This consists of aerosol spraying and ULV (ultra-low volume) misting of the affected areas. Sparky will then patrol the area once more to validate whether the bedbugs are well and truly gone.
While ORIGIN and Sparky will do their best to uproot the bed bugs, it is your personal responsibility to keep your premises clutter-free. Like any other insect, bed bugs are constantly on the prowl for food (a blood meal) and shelter. The best way to prevent an infestation from occurring is to seal off any cracks and crevices. Regular vacuuming and laundering of items at high temperatures will also help to kill the bed bugs.
Remember, the last thing we want is a sleepless night. Or worse, an allergic reaction to a bed bug bite. So do your best in keeping your house free of clutter, and ORIGIN will do the rest
