Bed Bug Infestation Signs

Bites on Your Body: Bed bug bites typically appear as small, red, itchy welts. They often occur in a line or cluster on exposed areas like the arms, legs, or neck.

✘ Physical Sightings: Adult bed bugs are brown, flat, and about the size of an apple seed. Juveniles are smaller and translucent.

✘ Blood Stains: Tiny blood smears on your sheets or pillowcases can be a sign of crushed bed bugs.

✘ Dark Spots: These are bed bug excrements and may bleed on the fabric like a marker would. You might find these on your mattress, bed linens, or nearby furniture.

✘ Eggs and Eggshells: Tiny, pale yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow.

✘ Unpleasant Odour: A strong, musty scent might emanate from the bed bugs’ scent glands.

✘ Evidence in Common Hiding Spots: Bed bugs tend to hide around bed frames, mattresses, box springs, headboards, cracks, crevices, and even behind wallpapers.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s advisable to contact one of our bed bug removal experts immediately. Early intervention can prevent a larger infestation and the associated challenges.

  • Treatment Method: Different extermination methods come with varying costs. For instance, heat treatments might be more expensive than chemical treatments, but they can be more effective in a single session.

How long does bed bug removal take?

The duration of bed bug removal depends on several factors that aren’t just limited to the severity of the Infestation. Naturally, more extensive infestations will take longer to treat than minor ones.

You’ll also need to take into account the treatment methods. These can include:

  • Chemical Treatments can be done in a few hours for a standard-sized home or apartment, but you may need to vacate the premises for several hours or even days to allow the chemicals to dissipate.
  • Heat Treatments: These usually take several hours, with the heating process itself lasting anywhere from 4 to 8 hours, depending on the infestation and size of the area.
  • Freezing Treatments: These involve using CO₂ to freeze the bugs and might be completed within a similar timeframe as heat treatments.
  • Integrated Pest Management (IPM): This is a combination of treatments and might take longer than using just one method.
  • Size of the Area to be Treated: Treating a single room is quicker than an entire house.
  • Preparation Time: Before the actual treatment, some preparation is often needed, like clearing out or covering belongings, which can add to the overall time.
  • Follow-up Treatments: Bed bugs are notorious for their resilience. Even after initial treatment, follow-up treatments may be required to ensure that all bugs and eggs are eradicated. Each treatment will add to the overall time.

In general, the actual treatment for a standard home or apartment might take anywhere from a few hours to a full day, especially if heat treatment is involved. However, when considering preparation and potential follow-up treatments, the entire process could stretch over several weeks.

What should I know about getting rid of bed bugs?

Getting rid of bed bugs in Brisbane and the Gold Coast involves a combination of DIY methods and professional interventions.

Here’s a step-by-step guideline.

Immediate Measures:

  • Remove and wash all bedding, curtains, and clothes in hot water, followed by a hot dryer cycle for at least 30 minutes. This will kill bed bugs and their eggs.
  • Vacuum your bed, surrounding area, and any places where you’ve spotted bed bugs. Seal the vacuumed contents in a plastic bag and dispose of it immediately.

Identify the Infestation:

  • Check your bed thoroughly. Examine the mattress, box spring, bed frame, and headboard.
  • Look for tiny black spots (bug faeces), reddish stains (crushed bugs), or the bugs themselves.

Physical Removal:

  • Consider using a bed bug trap or sticky tape to capture them.
  • A stiff brush can also be used to scrub the mattress seams, dislodging any bed bugs and their eggs.

Chemical Treatment:

  • Over-the-counter insecticides might help with minor infestations. However, many bed bugs have developed resistance to common pesticides. Always read labels and instructions.
  • For extensive infestations, consider hiring a professional pest controller who has access to more potent treatments.

Non-Chemical Treatment:

  • Diatomaceous earth, a natural insect killer, can be sprinkled around bed legs and other potential bed bug zones. It works by dehydrating the bugs.
  • Bed bug-proof encasements can be used to cover mattresses and box springs, trapping the bugs inside and preventing them from feeding.

Heat Treatment:

  • Bed bugs die when exposed to high temperatures. Items like stuffed toys, shoes, or other non-washable items can be placed in a dryer on high heat to kill the bugs.
  • Professional exterminators offer whole-room or whole-house heat treatments.


  • Install bed bug interceptors under bed legs. These traps will prevent bugs from climbing up to your bed from the floor.
  • Reduce clutter in your home to eliminate their hiding spots.
  • Regularly inspect and vacuum your home, especially after trips or receiving second-hand furniture.

Professional Help:

  • If the infestation is beyond your control, or if DIY methods haven’t worked, consider hiring a professional pest control service. They’ll have the expertise and tools necessary for thorough eradication.

Stay Vigilant:

  • Bed bugs can be persistent. Even after you think they’re gone, continue to check regularly for signs of their return.
