How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are easily spread and can be difficult to treat. A bed bug infestation can quickly reach an epidemic level if not treated in a professional way. It takes just 10-12 weeks before your bed bug infestation will reach a level at which guests will notice the problem. The key to eradicating bed bugs is early detection and quick treatment by a pest control expert.

Effective Bed Bug Services from Rentokil

Our bed bug treatment programs are the best way to take action against a bed bug infestation.

Rentokil technicians are extensively trained skilled and experienced professionals. They understand the habits of bed bugs and use their knowledge to choose the correct control methods and materials to develop an effective management program.


Our innovative range of treatment options will quickly, effectively and discreetly treat bed bugs in your home or business.

We will respond to your call-out and arrange a survey of your property to identify the need for control.

Depending on the survey carried out on your premises and the level of infestation, your Rentokil technician will either implement a spray treatment to eradicate bed bugs, or perform a Heat Pod treatment that eliminates all types of insects, and bed bugs through the application of heat.

Once all treatment options have been discussed and a treatment plan is agreed, a Rentokil Technician will arrange to come back to your business to commence the bed bug treatment.

All our treatments are based on the cube approach, which is critical to effective and lasting bed bug treatment. This approach includes treatment to an infested room and inspection of surrounding rooms (and treatment if required).


As part of our service, we offer a proactive inspection service to reduce future risks. Our recommendation is to inspect all high risk areas of your business. The exact details will be agreed with you.

Staff Training

Early detection of bed bugs is essential to quick and effective treatment. No one is better placed for identifying bed bugs in a hotel than your housekeeping staff. As part of our bed bug treatment programs our experts will train your staff to look for signs of bed bugs before they end up in a review on a travel website!

High Risk Bed Bug Businesses

You should consider a proactive approach to bed bug control if your business offers accommodation or provides transportation. These environments are considered the main sources for harbouring and spreading bed bugs:

With such a range of infestation sources it is almost impossible to prevent bed bugs entering your business premises. The best defence for your business is early detection of common bed bug signs.

A bed bug problem can spread very quickly and if left uncontrolled can put your business in jeopardy of loss of revenue, reputation or even forced closure. The presence of bed bugs also poses a high risk of distressing bites for you and your customers.
