Bedbugs, regardless of what you read on the internet are still quite rare. The insects have to be physically brought into your home usually on luggage, sometimes on second hand furniture.
A bedbug treatment involves treating the affected area with a residual professional use only insecticide. The application of the insecticide done in a different more targeted way than a treatment for other insects such as fleas.
The cost of a bedbug treatment is dependent on the size of the affected area. Multiple treatments over several months may be required depending on the level of infestation. I cover all Leeds postcode areas for bedbug treatments.
The time it takes to treat a home for bedbugs will depend on the size of the property but it typically takes around one hour per room to complete, this is followed by a couple of hours drying time. Time to complete eradication can be several months. Multiple visits will be required to achieve total control, this is reflected in the cost of a treatment.
I take all necessary precautionary measures to make the treatment as safe as possible. The insecticides I use to control bedbugs are safe if used correctly. You and your pets will be excluded during the treatment and until the insecticide is dry. I always make recommendations following a treatment this will be documented on your treatment report.
