A leading pest prevention service based has taken proactive measures to combat the ongoing bed bug epidemic which has spread across Europe.
HPC247 Whelan Pest Prevention based near Whiteley in Hampshire, has invested into a new state-of-the-art specialised heat treatment technology, which is designed to eradicate bed bug infestations in homes, businesses and even hotels.
Sean Whelan, the company’s managing director, said that although bed bugs have always been around, the public health problem is getting worse and people are becoming worried about a spread of bed bugs in the UK.
The company’s new bed bug busting heaters work by safely heating properties to a temperature that is so hot, nothing is able to survive, putting a stop to all pest infestations, including bed bugs.
Mr Whelan added: “Bed bugs have always been around in homes, hotels and businesses so we don’t want to scaremonger the public into thinking every home in the UK is suddenly going to be swamped by bed bugs.
“However, we are trying to educate people on the signs of bed bugs and how to spot them, should there be an outbreak in the UK. We also want to reassure people that if they do suspect bed bugs, there are plenty of ways to get rid of them, which is why we have invested in these heaters.
“It’s also important to remember that bed bugs are not caused by a dirty home or business. It is a misconception that bed bugs fester in dirty places, anyone could be faced with a bed bug problem.”
