Bedbugs are often referred to as hitch hikers as they move from one place to another, usually when items such as luggage, soft furnishings, clothing and furniture are moved. Bedbugs are found anywhere with a food source or where human blood can be found. Bed bugs are not connected to messy and dirty spaces. That is just a myth.
How to prevent Bed Bugs
Reduce clutter in your home where bugs could inhabit
Ensure that you clean second hand goods such as clothing and furniture before items enter your home
Hoovering regularly can help reduce the size of a bed bug population. But remember to empty and clear the hoover to avoid transferring the bed bugs elsewhere in your house.
Wash and dry your clothes at the highest temperatures to kill eggs and beetles (60 Degrees where possible)
