The aim of this web site is to help inform people of the bedbug issue and to illustrate that it can happen to anyone.  


However as an exposure pest they can be avoided.  Spending 5 or 10 minutes learning about bedbugs can help you avoid ever having them as a problem at home.


As treatment can cost $1,000’s and take months to complete it seems a sensible use of time.


Thankfully there are no known cases of diseases transmission by Bedbugs.

Understanding your problem and situation means understanding what bed bugs are and how they interact with humans.


Reading this primer will help you identify if bed bugs are the cause of your problems.

In recent years some great web resources have been developed.


Although there is a lot of bad information out there here are some of the best.

As well as the obscure bazaar and down right ridiculous YouTube has some amazing contributions about bedbugs.  From clips of TV programs to personal messages and corporate trailers.


We have short listed what we feel are some of the most important and factual clips so you don’t have to go hunting for them.

Communicating the issue and need to be aware of bedbugs is a difficult subject.  There is a lot of inaccurate information out there which can do more harm than good.


Spending a few minutes communicating the dangers of bedbugs has never been easier with the availability of email.  Two minutes spent sending this information to friends and family will help stop unwanted house guests staying after the next time they visit.


We have also added social media like buttons to our site, please click on them to help spread the word, by doing so you reduce your own risk of getting bedbugs and it does not mean you have them, just that you are aware of them.

One of the first things people often do when they discover an infestation is panic and throw things out of their home.  


In many cases this can cause more harm than good in spreading the problem around your home.  It can also result in someone else getting infected by contact with your disposed items.  


Help to break this vicious cycle of infestation by ensuring that all disposed items are done in the correct and safe fashion.


It is however NOT essential to dispose of furniture to eradicate bed bugs and the cost of replacing things is often an expense you don’t need to endure.
