Bedbugs (as opposed to dustmites)

There’s been a lot of talk in the past year about numbers of bedbugs increasing dramatically.

They’re the size of a match head, can be transported in luggage and live in such places as mattresses, joinery cracks and under wallpaper, coming out at night to feed on human blood…and bites can be nasty.

They’re nigh-on impossible to get rid of by yourself, so I’d advise contacting pest control experts.
