Pest Control in Ealing
Pest Control in Ealing
Ealing is a major suburban district of west London, and the administrative centre of the London Borough of Ealing. It is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan. It was historically a rural village in the county of Middlesex and formed an ancient parish.
As part of the growth of London in the 20th century, Ealing significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming a municipal borough in 1901 and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. It now forms a significant commercial and retail centre with a developed night time economy. Ealing has the characteristics of both suburban and inner-city developments. Ealing’s town centre is often colloquial with Ealing Broadway, the name of both a rail interchange & a shopping centre.

Bed bugs and treatment
The Bed bug infestation may have spread from an adjoining building or from some furniture or suitcase recently brought into the house, second hand clothing may also spread infestation. Bed bugs feed entirely on human blood at night when the victim is asleep. After feeding they crawl back into their hiding places which are in cracks and crevices in furniture, behind wall paper, bed frames, cupboards, mattresses, electrical equipment, curtains, light fittings etc.
Bed bugs bite at night. The bite marks will depend on the reaction of the person being bitten, as with Fleas & other biting insects different people may react in a different way and at a different time to others. Bites are usually on areas of the body that stick out the bed covers. Bed bugs are visible to the naked eye.
In most bed bug infestations bed bugs will not be seen while feeding, the only evidence being the bites. You cannot feel bed bugs crawling on your skin the only thing you will feel will be the result of the bite long after the bed bug has crawled home.
Preparation Prior To Treatment
Bed Bugs are one of the hardest insects to treat and treatments will only work if the preparation has been done correctly. The bed sheets & curtains must be removed & washed. The room(s) to be treated must be vacuumed & cleaned. The drawers & wardrobes must be emptied & the clothes only re introduced to the rooms once they have been washed or tumble dried.The treatment will fail if the room is full of clutter. The rooms must be clear of toys, books, boxes, CDs, posters etc. Be careful not to put any of these objects into other rooms as you may spread the infestation. Objects in the room that cannot be either washed, tumble dried or sprayed with the insecticide (books, shoes, cd’s, dvd’s etc) must be put in a freezer overnight in a plastic bag. This should be done before putting objects back into a treated room.
Bed bugs usually only infest rooms that are slept in & we recommend treating any adjoining bed rooms to the infested room. They can lay dormant for up to 12 months so be careful with any objects removed & then re introduced back into a bedroom within this time frame. If you are going to replace a bed or mattress either do this prior to treatment or or once your are sure the treatment has worked & all bed bugs have been eradicated.
We treat the walls, ceilings, bed, mattress, furniture and surrounding areas in the bed rooms with one (or both ) of the following insecticide sprays: Effect Microtech CS’* which contains Permethrin, HSE Number 6287 and made by Sorex or K-Othrine WG250, HSE Number 5390 which contains deltamethrin 25%. These insecticides are the most modern insecticide available. Also we may use powders in voids or large electrical items: either one called Ficam D* which contains the insecticide @ 1% w/w Bendiocarb or Killgerid which works by scratching the cuticle (the shell) of the insect that causes the insect to die of dehydration. This powder is completely harmless to mammals. All insecticides are biodegradable, almost odourless, non tainting & do not corrode or stain. The areas where the Bedbugs will be expected to crawl as well as their harbourages will be treated.
