Wellington’s Best Bed Bug Extermination Services
Contrac2Kill has extensive knowledge and experience dealing with unwanted household pests. We provide effective and affordable exterminations in properties throughout Wellington.
Our service team uses a range of professional removal treatments and techniques to safely control bed bugs. Infestations can be difficult to eradicate if not treated properly and it is strongly suggested not to attempt this without professional assistance.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no association between bed bugs and filth. These pests only feed on blood and as long as there's a source available, they will happily take up residence in even the most pristine environments. They enter properties as ‘hitchhikers’ and establish a nest in your homes. These pests don't usually stay on their hosts, but might hide in clothing, inadvertently going along for a ride to a new location. Most often, they travel in luggage after someone has stayed in an infested hotel room. They may even infest theatres and other public spaces such as busses or trains, spreading to new locations via purses, backpacks, or clothing.
Bed bugs live all around the world and their occurrence is not seasonal. They are obligatory (bloodsucking) insects that only need blood to survive. Between meals they obtain all the additional moisture they need from water vapour and can stay dormant for months between feedings.
Bed bugs are elusive and usually nocturnal, which can make detection and removals difficult. They often lodge in dark crevices, laying hundreds of tiny adhesive eggs in fabric seams or mattresses. Aside from detecting live insects, signs of an infestation include eggs, bite marks, faecal spots, blood spotting on sheets, and their empty, moulted exoskeletons.
Although these pests can be found singly, they tend to congregate once established. These places can vary greatly and removals need to be extremely thorough. They can gather inside vehicles, within furniture, amongst bedside clutter, even inside electrical sockets and nearby laptop computers. Most often, our encounters with them are in the bedroom, where they hide in mattress seams, bed frames, headboards, curtains, clothing and wardrobes.
