Bedbug Infestation Makes a Resurgence in Sydney – Here’s How You Can Fight Back
There are few images more sacred than the comfort, relaxation, and cleanliness of a bed that is free from a bedbug infestation. After a long, hard day, nothing is more appealing than the thought of curling up in the one place where all the world’s problems fade into the background. Many people—from homeowners to travelers looking for a reputable hotel—look forward to the comfort in store for them at the end of the day. So what happens when a bedbug infestation ruins that comfort?
According to a recent survey of Australian pest management companies, the prevalence of bedbug infestation in Sydney has increased by 5,000 percent in the last few years. Due to the reproductive abilities of these major pests, this is a number that won’t decrease unless the infestations are tackled head-on.
Although any dwelling can fall prey to a bedbug infestation, the industry most impacted by this recent pest insurgence is the hospitality trade. Bedbugs, tiny insects that feed off of the blood of humans and other hosts, are often carried in the luggage of unsuspecting travelers. With an increase in Sydney’s international reputation comes a multitude of travelers and potential carriers. Unlike these travelers, bedbugs don’t discriminate when it comes to the size or magnitude of a hotel. Five stars mean nothing to these hungry little critters; and each and every hotel in Sydney has the potential to experience an infestation of its own.
Contrary to popular belief, bedbugs cannot be controlled through cleanliness alone, and they aren’t restricted to just beds. Infestations can happen anywhere and at any time. In most cases, attempts to control bedbug infestations by non-specialist pest control providers only delay the care of a problem that needs attention now—especially when a hotel’s reputation and accountability are at stake.
To successfully eradicate these little pests, it takes specialised training and equipment. Bedbugs are known for being hard to find and catch; many pest control companies don’t have the means to detect them, let alone eradicate them. In fact, until recently, bedbugs took a backseat in terms of priority to many other pest infestations, and very few companies have been able to stay abreast of the best ways to fight back against bedbugs.
In addition, the latest techniques in chemical and steam treatments are needed to eliminate bedbug infestations thoroughly enough to ensure there isn’t a repeat occurrence.
With 30 years of experience and intensive training in the use of the necessary equipment, Pink Pest Services is one of the few companies in Sydney capable of eliminating bedbug problems for good. Visit our website for more information on bedbug treatment in Sydney.
