You can pick up bed bugs almost anywhere—offices, hotels and gyms for starters. They are great at hiding and have a reputation of hitchhiking in luggage, personal belongings or even on your clothes. Once indoors, they can be very difficult to locate without the help of an experienced pest specialist. You can reduce your chances of a costly bed bug removal by catching them early.
Wash and dry your bed linen in at least 60 degrees Celsius to kill bedbugs and their eggs, which may be in your linen. When back from a holiday, check your luggage and clothes carefully for bed bug hitch hikers.
Bed bugs are tiny but nasty and troublemaking creatures. They are bloodsucking insects that bite and can cause distress. A small area may be self manageable, but if bed bugs spread, it might get out of control if bed bugs spread. Is this happening at your home or office? Contact the best ‘source’ to ‘company’ for bed bug control in Singapore, ORIGIN Exterminators.
How To Identify Bed Bugs?
Before treating the bed bug infestation and pest, it is necessary to identify the bed bug infestation.
- Red, itchy bites
- Actual sightings of live or dead bed bugs
- Reddish, black, and brown stains on furniture or bed frames
- Blood spots on the sheets or mattress
- Tiny black spots, also known as ‘faecal pellets.’
- Peculiar smell
Bedbugs can move very swiftly across floors, ceilings, and furniture. Here are few facts to help with their identification.
- Adult bed bugs are roughly the shape and size of apple seeds.
- Long, brown, and flat when not fed, they swell and take a reddish colour after feeding.
- They are 4-6 mm long and have six legs and two antennae.
- Young bed bugs are even smaller and whitish-yellow. If not fed recently they are too small to be seen with the naked eye.
- Bed bug eggs are pearl-white, the size of a pinhead, like tiny, pale poppy seeds.

Watch how Ultra Low Volume misting is done.
Click here for more information on how to prepare your home for ULV Misting.
ULTRA LOW VOLME (ULV) MISTING
The ULV misting is a two-step treatment that emits fine water-based insecticide particles that penetrate cracks and crevices. After spraying, the mist is left to diffuse throughout the whole room for about 4 hours.
Treatment Step 1: Aids in attacking the majority of bed bugs in the premises
Treatment Step 2: Helps to control and kill off the population of newly-hatched bed bugs
As there are no beg bug control methods available that can target and eliminate unhatched bed bug eggs, we will administer Treatment Step 2 approximately 2 weeks after the first treatment, when the bed bug eggs that were present during the first ULV misting treatment, have hatched.
