Top Tips

Some places and products make DIY sound very easy to rid bedbug infestations completely. Personally I have never came across a "quick-fix" methods. But if you know about one then contact me so that I can list it on this website.

Bed bugs multiply and spread quickly so take immediate action when you discover an infestation.

Do not start treatment unless you have products, tools and action plan ready. Make your first effort count...hit them hard so they do not get the chance to move about and infest new areas.

Do not use fly or cockroach spray to get rid of bed bugs. It simply won't kill all of them. My advice - do not buy products from places who sells groceries or tools. Employ products from specialised pest control people.

Find yourself a good pest control company if DIY is not for you.
