Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite Your Family!


Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite Your Family!

ü  Do you wake up with itchy red bites on the neck, arms or shoulders?

ü  Does your child scratch incessantly at itchy red welts on the skin?

ü  Do you find blood stains on your bedsheets or pillowcases?

ü  Do you see reddish-black fecal spots, shed skins or tiny eggs near your bed?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may have bed bugs in your bed.

Bed bugs multiply very quickly and early detection is crucial to stop the infestation from worsening! On average, bed bugs lay 5 eggs per week with populations reaching into the thousands in only 30 days! Bed bugs are causes of asthma and allergies, especially among vulnerable individuals such as young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.

Common Type of Bed Bugs in Singapore

The Cimex hemipterus is a common type of tropical bed bugs found in Singapore. These oval, flat, reddish-brown insects, about the size of an apple seed become swollen after a blood meal. Your blood, that is.

These tiny creatures are blood suckers that feast on your blood (or your loved ones) while you sleep. Most bed bugs bites are painless and might go unnoticed for days, until itchy spots and red welts are formed on exposed skin, usually on the neck, arms or shoulders. Itchy rashes and allergies may develop. Scratching might lead to infection, inflammation and scarring. Serious infections could be life-threatening and difficult to treat.

Call IKARI immediately to eliminate the blood sucking creatures from your bedroom where you and your family sleep every night!

Don’t Poison Your Bedroom with Pesticides

Unprofessional treatment by spraying your bedroom with pesticides can be dangerous and harmful to health. As bed bugs can infest a very wide area, including the cleanest bedrooms (and any fabric area, including sofas and clothes), you will need professional help to eliminate them, as merely washing the sheets are not effective. Bed bugs may live up to a year without feeding!
